Customers Review: "We had a wonderful time. All went according to plan. Even the weather was nice. The hotels were all good. Especially Hotel Casa Benilde in Palas de Rei. They were so friendly. We had dinner in a local restaurant and that was great. And a lovely breakfast in the hotel the following morning! The walks were through wonderful countryside, so peaceful and so interesting. We met up with different people along the way, and it was nice the way we kept meeting them in the cafes and in the evenings. Santiago de Compostela is itself beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay there. We stayed on an extra two nights at Hotel La Salle. They were friendly and helpful. We thought it was a marvellous holiday. Many thanks for organising everything so well at short notice."
