Following a week of business, we took a taxi out 10km from Santiago city centre to the penultimate stop on the Camino way, and then walked back. Weather was a little unpredictable, but it didn’t actually rain. Gorgeous pathways through eucalyptus trees, gradually coming more and more urban as we got closer to the city. Route is signposted by scallop signs. Well worth a little trip out, just to see trees if not anything else.

El Camino....what an amazing experience and all thanks to Walks in Spain.
From preparing months in advance to the evening of our farewell dinner Walks in Spain went out of their way to assist, offer advice and care about every aspect to make this adventure an experience of a lifetime.
We had a great group of 13 from around the world....all ages and walking abilities but thanks to Paul (Snr) and Bill (our guides) nothing was too much for them when making each and every day a unique experience.....whether it be picking up a weary body in the support vehicle or checking we were safely to our destinations or sharing their great knowledge of the area and not least their excellent humour!
On our trip Paul (Jnr) could not join us but we did meet him at our farewell dinner.....suffice to say we felt like we knew Paul because of all his prior assistance, his immediate responses to emails and his invaluable advice in all aspects of preparing for such a trip.
I’ll see you again Walks in Spain....you’re an amazing package of professionalism, friendliness, care and fun.

We walked the last 110Km of the Camino, and had a great experience. We booked a self guided tour through Walks In Spain. While our interactions with Paul the owner, prior to the trip were fantastic, several of the nightly accommodations he arranged were very poor. 2 of them were very far off the Camino, so added extra walking distances after a long hot day of walking. We got bed bugs from our night at Casa Santaia in Pedrouzo. None of the accommodations had A/C, which made sleeping very difficult in Mid-July temperatures. Luggage transfer and train booking was good by Walks In Spain. My recommendation is to do research on the lodging prior to booking- some places were exceedingly dirty. Overall our trip was memorable

We are two fit women in our late 70s who recently completed the last 100 km of the Camino Frances through Galicia. We found it challenging yet very rewarding, and thanks to Paul from Walks in Spain, we had our luggage taken ahead each day, and arrived each evening to lovely pre- booked accommodation with an evening meal awaiting us. Just what we needed after a strenuous day’s walking!
Even in late June the cool climate of this region makes for very pleasant walking, and the experience of meeting other pilgrims along the way was one to be treasured.
Paul arranged our train tickets from Madrid to Sarria, and the transfer at the end to the bus station. His replies to our emails were always prompt, and we had the pleasure of meeting him along the way. We can highly recommend his company to future travellers.

My husband and I had wonderful experiences walking the Camino from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela. Paul from Walks In Spain arranged our trip booking us rooms in charming and historical homes and arranging for luggage transfer between lodgings on the route. We fell in love with Spain, its beautiful people, ancient architecture, lovely countryside, delicious and plentiful cuisine and wines. The walk was challenging but very doable for us retired people and a bonus is meeting people from all over the world. We highly recommend adding the El Camino to your bucket list and suggest Walks in Spain to help make your trip as wonderful as we experienced.
