Completely relaxed during our walking holiday

Annemiek and Roberto took care of the Camino Francès from Saint Jean Pied de Port for my girlfriend and me this year. We were on the road for 37 days and everything was arranged untill the last detail. We have chosen to book all overnight stays in advance. When booking the camino we were already captivated by the enthusiasm and expertise. We also appreciate the initiative they took to think with us and for us! During the trip they were always available and assisted us with advice. In short, we were completely relaxed and only had to walk and especially enjoy! If you are considering booking a camino or other walking holiday and if you want to be completely relaxed: definitely book at WAW.travel!
