Coast to Coast testimonial Rich Goodwin

We have helped over 14,000 walkers and have a 4.7/ 5  experience rating across our trips.

Absolutely breathtaking. It made me want to crack open a chocolate bar at the top of every peak. The organising, guides and overall knowledge were fabulous, as was the accommodation. Great experience. I will definitely be climbing another mountain with RAW Travel!

Kylee Delios, VIC

Using the services of RAW Travel afforded me the much-needed time to focus on the physical, mental and spiritual preparation for my 41-day Camino Frances. Having nightly accommodation pre-booked, luggage transported each day, and the safety net of on-the-ground local contacts was a great investment. I didn’t have to rush along The Way searching for a bed! RAW are my ‘go-to’ for walking the Camino, Kumano and more.

We are currently doing our third walk with RAW (Nakasendo Way), and, as always, they have excelled themselves! What an amazing experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend RAW. Prior to this, we walked the Kumano Kodo, qualifying us for our Dual Pilgrim certificates. So proud! Thanks RAW, we couldn’t have done it without you!

Fiona Anderson & David Bignell (VIC)

The logistics of my Tour du Mont Blanc guided trip through France, Italy and Switzerland was really well organised by RAW. Dave was an excellent mountain guide – encouraging and full of information. He was quite the MacGyver and Bear Grylls rolled into one! The walk itself was stunning and perfectly challenging. The accommodation was comfortable and clean and the food delicious. They even catered for my lactose intolerance.

Dale Ischia (VIC)

We had a girls weekend away and loved every minute of it. We thoroughly enjoyed being looked after by our guide Eric and driver Lee who fed and watered us at plentiful intervals with fresh, healthy food and occasional surprise treats. The scenery is spectacular and appreciating the Great Ocean flora and fauna is best done on foot because of the details, immersion in nature and the exposure to the history of the area. Fantastic experience!

Louise Jones, NSW

Just completed the 5-day self-guided Nakasendo Way. So beautiful in every way. An extraordinary trip. Thank you RAW Travel for immersing us in the culture and nature of Japan and making it stress free.

Elaine Mills (NSW)

Just finished 17 days walking the Coast to Coast in England. This trip was the best walking holiday I’ve ever experienced. An incredibly beautiful part of England made even better thanks to the team at RAW Travel. All the travel arrangements, baggage transfers and accommodation were spot on. Everything went flawlessly.
