was well organized and well thought
off. All the hotels and restaurants
where very good. On the whole I would
rate it a 9 both in quality and price.
The bike was good and fits the terrain.
Even though my personal bike is a
MTB I did not have any problem adjusting
to riding the hybrid. I was mostly
taken by the variety of people one
encounters along the Camino and how
open and friendly everybody is.
We had great service both before
and during the trip. We did a self-guieded
tour but the Bike Spain staff was
still very helpful when we had questions/needs
during the trip.Great biking route,
good price for convenience of having
bikes and route planned for you.The
contours on the maps in the road book
were very detailed but a little bit
hard to read as you were biking.
We particularly enjoyed the tour
of Camino de Santiago! First, a big
thank you to Sjoukje for all the work
setting up the tour, and including
taking care of air tickets to return
to Madrid (along with arranging for
Walter to carry our luggage to save
us the baggage fees!) But, the really
big thanks goes to Walter. Walter
was an excellent guide and took good
care to see that I was always on the
right path. He took good care of all
our arrangements and incidentals along
the way. And, he was an excellent
companion! My wife and I both enjoyed
his company and we think he’s
an asset to you.
Laughter. The group mix of cultures.
The beauty. The patient, sweet guides.
Camaraderie. Spirit of helping each
other make it.”

“I felt that the trip was efficient and well organised and that we were very well looked after and every effort was made to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves.”
Judy Magnussen, Camino de Santiago, August 2008
“I enjoyed all the hotels that we stayed at and in particular the range of variety.
The food and restaurants were great and it was good to be able to sample the dishes of the various regions
A very worthwhile trip, a great experience and I'm very glad I did it. To have participated in the Camino and to have had the opportunity to have experienced the wonderful countryside, the helpful people, the historical aspects and variety and quality of the food.”
Peter Snyder, Camino from Burgos 2008
“The sense of accomplishment; the beauty of the land; and the old city walls and castles and of course Santiago. Amazing experience.
I think you know your business and do it well.
We appreciated all the information that Catherine provided us and her flexibility. She has great people skills and real enthusiasm for the adventure. Special thanks to her.”
“Excellent. Katherine and Mario were efficient, without being overbearing, and very easygoing. They are what I would particularly recommend about BikeSpain, are your biggest asset and deserve a large bonus!”
