Customer Testimonials

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.

Customer Testimonials

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.  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!!

Customer Testimonials

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!

Customer Testimonials

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.
