Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Follow the Camino had everything organized well and we had no issues with luggage transfers and accommodations. I will be doing another Camino route with them this May (2024).

What a fantastic trip. "Follow the Camino" organized everything in detail and I had nothing to worry about, except putting on my shoes in the morning and walk. All was so well sorted from accommodation to meals to luggage transfers to an amazing app; absolutely the best. Would highly recommend this if you want to go and walk the Camino without any worries.

Follow the Camino were great!
They planned the whole trip for me when many companies wouldn't and most places were shut.
Follow the Camino made it happen and were able to organize it in the dead of winter.
Most of the places were fabulous and the food was quite good and nutritious.
They were very helpful and tended to every question i had no matter how small.
I also felt very safe and comfortable that there was an emergency number i could call if any issues might arise.

We used this service to walk the Camino Frances in October 2023. We started working with them in February and reviewed our needs and wished with there staff over several weeks. They provided basic functions of hotel bookings and luggage transfers, but did little to enhance the experience beyond the basic. They disregarded our request for hotels in town and they took large fees for their bookings. We questioned the staff after our first night in St Jean about future accommodations due to the room’s sewage smell, lack of hot water in our bathroom, and a very rude host. This service does not work on weekends and their response after our complaint was tough cookies you already paid! Definitely soured our experience and would recommend you look at the many other fine service available.

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with Follow the Camino. We appreciate the opportunity to address your concerns. 1. Hotel Selection Criteria: We strive to balance the desire for centrally located accommodations with the need for clean, neat, and tidy hotels. Sometimes, this means selecting hotels slightly off the path to maintain the quality of stay you deserve. We do offer taxi services for hotels located farther from the Camino route to make your journey more comfortable. This information is also included in the vouchers we send in advance of your trip. 2. Partnering with Suppliers: Working with thousands of suppliers means occasionally encountering unforeseen challenges. We choose our hotels based on multiple parameters, including hospitality, service, and cleanliness. We understand that small hotel owners may sometimes have off days, but it's our responsibility to ensure consistent quality. Based on your feedback, we will reevaluate our partnership with the hotel you mentioned and take necessary steps to avoid similar issues for future travelers. 3. 24/7 Emergency Support: We understand how distressing it can be to face issues during your trip. Please remember that we have an emergency phone service available 24/7. This information is included in our emails and vouchers for easy reference. While our regular offices are closed on weekends, our emergency line ensures that we can address urgent matters at any time. We value your feedback as it helps us improve and provide a better experience for all pilgrims. We are committed to learning from this and making the necessary adjustments. If you'd like to discuss your experience further or have any suggestions, please feel free to reach out to us directly.

Will definitely be using Follow the Camino again to book our next camino trek. Airport transfers, accommodation, luggage transfers and restaurants were all sorted in advance and took the worry off our shoulders. All we had to do was walk and we saw some beautiful scenery along the way and met some lovely people who shared their camino experiences. Going at the end of October meant that some cafes/restaurants and churches were closed along the route but we did not go hungry. We were very fortunate with the weather until we arrived at Santiago! I would highly recommend good quality socks, runners/hiking boots and we had no trouble with our feet which is vital during the long daily walks. Bring some cash as some cafes/restaurants would not take card. Can't wait to do our next Camino!

Great experience overall. Met so many interesting people. Certainly a challenging experience, but rewarding. Day 1 was probably the most difficult for me. There were lots of climbs ahead but I was really tested on that first day.

Overall an amazing trip! Loved the App, showing us our route and accommodations. At the end of a long day of hiking, arriving at our hotel and seeing our luggage waiting for us was a gift! Overall our accommodations were great! We had asked for a shorter second day of walking, so it was arranged that we stay at a Albergue, which wasn’t so great. The next day we hiked only 5 miles to the place we were originally supposed to stay! I wish we had known it was only 5 miles down the road, I think we would have gone all the way! Aside from that, it was great and I would highly recommend Follow The Camino for an amazing and memorable experience!

Follow the Camino is THE WAY TO GO if you're pre-planning your Camino adventure. Everything went exactly as planned and it was a beautiful, rewarding journey for my family and I. Our accomadations were all wonderful and the baggage transfer was seamless. All of the directions and tips we were given were so helpful and Follow the Camino truly made our journey a perfect one. Thank you SO much to Jade for EVERYTHING!

We had a wonderful week long trip starting in St.Jean Pied De Port and finishing in Los Arcos. The landscape was beautiful, the food excellent and our accommodation was also wonderful. Day 1 from St Jean to Roncesvalles is a bit of a climb but the views and end point make it all worthwhile. I would strong recommend this route and we will definitely be doing more in future.
