Guides Mark and Mick complete gentlemen from start to finish, very passionate about walking,nature and with great knowledge of local culture and history, not to mention they know every good route (and restaurant 😜) on the way.

We walked through some of the most stunning scenery, the craic was mighty as was the camradory of the group, I was a single traveler but was made very welcome from the get go.

Accommodation was fab all spotlessly clean and comfortable, the food choice was wide and varied and especially fresh.

I'd have no hesitation booking through Into The West Adventure's in the future and highly recommend them, a great time was had highly enjoyable👌👌

I travelled with Mark & Eoin from Sarria to Santiago. I was a nervous solo traveler but was immediately put at ease when Eoin met us all at Dublin airport. I love how the lads look out for everyone along the way but allow each person to have their own journey in their own way. I firmly believe that a lot of people that did this same part of the journey without guides were not lucky enough to hear the local stories, share the local history and even see a storks nest. Mark is a fountain of Camino knowledge, from religious stories to where to get the best bacon & eggs 😂 Mark is so well known in these parts that everyone in his group is treated very well. We ate at some great places and slept in great accommodation with the Monks hotel being one of the highlights. Eoin was new as a guide but was so kind and respectful and helpful I’ve no doubt he will do a few more trips. I can’t recommend “Into the West Adventures” enough……wonderful trip, wonderful company 🥰 I will most definitely travel with them again!!

Highly recommend any walking trip with Mark of Into the West Adventures. I have travelled with him 4 times to do the Camino and every experience was amazing. Guided walks, gorgeous hotels, bags transferred and generally great fun.
Groups are always amazing and loads of new friends made each time.
I have also visited Inishturk and Antrim with him to explore our rigged and beautiful landscapes.
You will be looked after from the moment you book.
Have fun on your next adventures

Great weekend, well organized and a diverse group. Mark is a great tour guide, knowledgeable and a good sense of humor. We liked it that much we booked the Inishturk weekend.

We walked the section of the Camino from Sarria to Santiago in June. The walk was organised by Mark Reynolds of Into the West Tours. It was a great experience and was so well organised by Mark. All the accomodation, the walking, the food and the enjoyment was excellent and we would highly recommend Mark to anyone thinking of going on a walking holiday. We made great friends with the others in the group and it is a great way to experience the Camino without the hassle and bother of finding accomodation, places to eat, stops along the way and general information all of which was done so well by Mark. Couldn't recommend him highly enough.

I've joined this company for 2 different sections of the Camino, and also for a couple of the West Coast of Ireland trips to both Inishturk & Inishbofin. I simply can't say enough good things.

This is a company who pride themselves on the individuals experience. The groups are generally small enough that you get to know people immediately. On my trips the group size varied from 10 - 20 people. There were some couples, groups of friends & a good few solo travellers (like myself).

From the moment the trip starts everything is catered for and every eventuality covered. Great accommodation, food, hikes and above all else, great fun. Go with this company and not only will you have a great walking holiday - you'll also meet up with so many likeminded people that you're sure to make new life long friends.

I'm definitely going to be booking again soon. Cheers!!!

I walked a section of the Camino from Sarria to Santiago with Mark Reynolds from Into the West Adventure Tours. From the first time I spoke to Mark, he was helpful, clear & pleasant. We met at the airport and from then on everything went like clockwork, he knows the route really well, having taken people there many times. All the lovely hotels he had booked us into, were excellent and were very happy to see Mark & consequently we got the best welcome too. He even knows what's good at each coffee & lunch stop - consequently I had the best bacon & egg ever, on our second morning. Everyone has hens along the way, so eggs are gorgeous. I struggled from half way through 4th day on, with extremely painful ankles and he was kind and never showed any signs of impatience. Just want to note here - distances are very long - day after day - so practice, practice, practice, before you go. Mark is a bit of craic too, so you are in good company. What more can I say - excellent guide, excellent accommodation & excellent advice on best food all the way - thanks a mil Mark.

My-sister-in-law and myself walked the Camino at the end of October, and what an experience it turned out to be. Mark Reynolds was not guiding the week we wanted to go, but Mark arranged all out accommodation and transport of our bags each day. When we arrived at our accommodation each evening , we mentioned Marks name and we were immediately welcomed and offered top notch hospitality, the accommodation was beautiful and pilgrims menu was fantastic and all the wine we could drink thrown in. I could not fault anything for the week, despite having lots of rain along the way, we met amazing people from all over the world. overall it was an experience we will never forget and hope to do it all again in the future, and Mark will be our guide.

Recently completed the Sarria to Santiago route of the Camino Way with Mark from Into The West Adventures. Well done Mark well orgainised.
It was extremely well organised from start to finish with good accommodation, luggage transfers, and transport to and from the airport. Accommodation was great it was always a lovely surprise as to where we were staying at the end of our days walking.
Buen Camino was the start of our day. We met people from all over the world, everyone on the same journey as us. We walked through Hamlets and around corn fields, on and off road and through tree shaded paths. We tried local foods including Octopus and the pilgrimages Menu which is very substantial and excellent value. We attended mass in the Cathedral in Santiago and saw the lifting / swinging of the Incense Thurible. It was amazing how five men can make this Incense Thurible move through the air with such grace and accuracy. I personally found this very moving. The trip was a very memorable one with amazing, remarkable fun loving people, who all took care of each other and will remain friends. Will definitely return and complete another part of the Camino.
