I booked the 7-day Camino Frances in November 2020 for travel in May this year but we cannot now make it due to the COVID pandemic: South Africans are being restricted world wide for travel. I was told that the booking included one "free date change". I advised them repeatedly that I needed to change the date, but no-one responds or acknowledges my notices. Yet whenever they are looking for bookings, they respond immediately - it seems that now that they have the deposit, it's a different story. Beginning to think I've been scammed.

Thanks, guys. Second booking with Camino Ways. I only rebooked because of the excellent service and experience the first time. The planned walk this year is the Portuguese Way.

We would like to thank CaminoWays for our trip last year. It was a tough call because of COVID-19, but we decided to go ahead and not to accept the option to postpone. We had a truly unforgettably enjoyable and life-enriching experience. We were blessed with a most considerate, patient and well-informed guide (Jesus), and the most enjoyable group of companions one could hope for. I will strongly recommend this program to anyone interested in this kind of adventure.

I booked a 7 day Camino Portuguese Coastal. This was my bucket list vacation, 3 weeks backpacking alone. First time ever traveling solo since becoming a widow. Booked in late 2019 for June 2020. The Camino was the first leg of my journey. Thank goodness I didn't pay it all up front. In January of 2020 as I was finalizing all the bookings, the news of the virus was starting to circulate, so I thought I would hold off on paying the rest of the Camino. By March the world shut down, and these guys were sending me weekly reminders of my final payment still. When I asked about what was happening they were quite vague, but things were really confusing at that time so it was understandable. By May it was apparent it wasn't happening, and I was trying to get info from them of what the process was to get a refund. I was to start my Camino June 3. At first they said I would only get the deposit back as I was the one cancelling the trip. That was unacceptable to me, and over the course of 6 weeks I shuffled around from one person to another, the answers were all different, ranging from just the deposit back, to full refund, to nothing back but arrange another booking, for another time...and finally they just stopped responding. I'm writing this a year later, and I never got my money back, can't find any details in my account saying anything about future bookings credits, and nobody has responded to me since around June of last year. I filed a claim through my Credit Card and still haven't heard a thing.

My daughter and I booked and paid for a hiking trip with this company a year in January 2020. Like the previous review our trip was cancelled as we were due to leave in June. We were told if we waited 6 months we would get a refund. We have been emailing to ask where our refund is at and at the end of November we finally got a response to say it was with their finance department. I emailed and asked for the email of the finance department but it has not been sent. We finally got another email in December to say our refund was still with the finance dept but they could not communicate with their finance department to find out when our refund would be reimbursed. My daughter wrote a review here and the company responded to say this should be dealt with by the end of December. Of course it hasn’t been so I have emailed but not response. Do not book with this company as they do not correspond or communicate professionally and do not follow through.
