Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed our recent walk with Raw. We were so well looked after, from beautiful accommodation, great food and best of all two of the best guides ever Mandy and Nicki! I would definitely recommend this walking trip to my friends and family, in fact we haven’t stopped talking about all the good times since we arrived back in Gerringong NSW! Thanks for such a memorable holiday and a big cheer to Mandy and Nicki who were so caring and informative they made the whole trip magic! The Mornington Peninsula certainly is a beautiful spot to visit.

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.

When I met Nick and Darren in front of the NGV International on Wednesday, April 21st, for the Great South West Walk  I instantly felt that they would be a wonderful team to travel with and I am very pleased to be able to tell you that my instincts turned out to be true!  Nick was a terrific guide over the three days of walking…very knowledgeable, very attentive and very personable.  I was very impressed with Nick‘s efforts to learn more about the plants and trees along the walk.  It was lovely to see someone who worked diligently to expand his knowledge of the area.  This will definitely hold Nick in good stead in future travels.  Darren was not only a careful driver but his local knowledge of almost everything was impressive and it is just wonderful that he has such a pleasant manner about him.  Both Nick and Darren worked hard to ensure that The Great South West Walk was a memorable experience for all of us.  Loved the trip!!

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!

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!

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.

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.
