Camino Customer Experiences

Fantastic Walk!

"We had a fantastic time walking 799km along the Camino Francés route. For the first time in many years we had a real break. We could relax and enjoy the walk because all the things we would normally worry about on such a long trip were handled so professionally by RAW Travel. We were so happy with your service that we have booked to walk Japan’s Kumano Kodo in 2019!”

Glow of achievement

"We really appreciated the seamless flow of accommodation and luggage transfers. Each hotel had great features. One always goes with the flow and we always settled in and enjoyed the companionship of fellow pilgrims and hosts at the hotels. On 'The Way' the walking was exhilarating and it never really mattered how tough the day was – at day’s end there was the glow of achievement.”

A highlight of our 3-month trip to europe

"From the very first contact, RAW Travel staff were professional and informative. They allowed us to tailor the walk timetable to our requirements and they provided a wealth of information before the trip started. The baggage arrangements and the booked accommodation were excellent. The walk we did was a highlight of our 3-month trip in Europe. Thank you, RAW.”

Perfect Experience - I"ll be back!

"The trip was superbly organised from beginning to end. Fabulous accommodation and a great mix of places to stay. We particularly loved the rural casas and the home-cooked meals. Our bags were always waiting for us and every host was charming and friendly. The whole experience was just perfect. I’ll be back to travel a different section of the Camino!"

Loved meeting new friends

“Mel was very available for questions as our plans for travel became more definite. The accommodation was exceptional! From the Parador in Santiago to the lovely, rural farmhouses and everything in between. My friend and I loved the local cuisine, meeting new pilgrim friends along the way, and the contemplative walking in the beautiful countryside of Spain. Thank you for such a great travel experience!”

wonderful food, culture and history

“I enjoyed a terrific adventure on the Camino with my Dad and Brother in-Law courtesy of RAW Travel. Everything was organised well in advance and we were able to wake up each day, enjoy a delicious breakfast in a different town and walk leisurely to our next location. The team back in Oz were great fun, insightful and genuinely interested in our experience. Thoroughly recommend RAW Travel and the wonderful food, culture and history of the Camino de Santiago.”

i loved it!

“I loved the Camino Finisterre. I enjoyed the scenery, the overall quietness and the fewer people. The baggage transfer service operated without a hitch and the accommodation was lovely.

one of the best experiences of my life

“I have just finished 26 days walking the Camino from Leon to Santiago and it has been one of the best experiences of my life. Lovely scenery, friendly locals, interesting co-walkers. As well as the sense of accomplishment in completing a life-long ambition. Every day offered a surprise - a box of fruit by the roadside for pilgrims, or an evening mass in a village church.The accommodation was excellent. No hiccups with any of the transfer arrangements.
