Reviews

Some words from our valued Wandering the World walkers.

"Wandering the World is an amazing group of women, especially Glenyce. She is knowledgeable, experienced in walking, extremely organised, thoughtful and considerate. She is fun and interesting and supportive when your feet can’t walk another step. Wandering the World brings the gift of the Camino to you. With them, all you have to do is follow the yellow arrow". Jen P – Camino, 2018 "If you are thinking of walking the Camino, just do it. It is a wonderful experience that you will forever treasure. It is a journey that brings peace in this busy and often crazy, demanding world we live in. It is an opportunity to let go of fears, remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be. It is a way to get back on the path that is our Life Journey. I can’t wait to do it again. The full 800 km this time! Wandering the World knows the Camino. The experience is seamless, from the time you arrive until the time that you leave. I appreciated the meals, accommodations...the only thing I had to think about was the walking". Connie J – Portuguese Camino 2016 and French Way 2017 “Your travel arrangements and moving of luggage was impeccable.  It meant that I just could enjoy the walking and not have to worry about any of the day to day logistics.  It was a true 'break' from feeling too responsible about anything except enjoying the day and arriving at our destination.  From the bottom of my heart, I say a big thank you.  Your arrangements were seamless”. Kica and Tom – Camino Frances, 2019
