We took a guided walk from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela. Our guide was extraordinar as she helped us to bridge the gap with the locals who speak only spanish. She also knew where are the best places to eat or drink along the way. And above all she managed to integrate the group members that came from different place of the world. The hotels on the way were excellent as well as the gourmet food every night at the hotel or at nearby restaurant. We strongly recommend the guided tours and we would do it again soon.

The Camino from Sarria to Santiago far exceeded my expectations as an experience, for the scenery, the quality of the accommodation and the organisational details completed by Follow the Camino.

No matter what your expectations are for a journey such as this, deep in your heart, you will find reward, solace, compassion, and experience from Sarria to Santiago. Our guide was knowledgeable, a true people-person, and treated us with respect and dignity during the time spent on and off the “trial”. This trip was everything I had hoped for and “not difficult” to manage. The physical nature of it is not as easy as it may seem; you should probably do a fair share of training on hills – up AND down them. You should probably be prepared for 5-8 hours “on trails” for 6 straight days. You never feel lost, it is accurately and well taken care of with markers and distances. You should never feel “alone” on this journey though there can be some solo or group times throughout. Enjoy the time on the Camino, because all of our our time is always getting shorter.

Just back from an excellent week long trip with Follow the Camino. We did the last section of the French Way from Sarria to Santiago. Our Guide was Francisco and I can not speak highly enough of him. Everything went very smoothly and the range of accommodation was great My favorite accommodation by far was Casa Das Corredoiras .What Made the difference was our wonderful host Carmen. Everyone on this route should. Stay here to experience her hospitality.
