- Santiago has 220 days of rain a year. Take waterproofs.
I thought that the group was too large. You advertise 12 to 15. We had 16.
The booking system was poor. two of us in the group were told that our flight left at 3.55pm which was altered 3 weeks before we left. Everyone else was given the correct departure time on booking. 2 were told that they could not fly from Gatwick and one was told that he could.
The customer service was amazing. I lost my mobile 'phone which was found and my daughter contacted. She contacted Explore who managed to arrange the delivery of the phone to the hotel in Santiago.
The highlights were the daily walking and visits to the churches en route. The tours of Leon and Santiago. Other highlights were the delicious octopus and the reasonably priced wine and beer.
This wasn't my favourite walking holiday for its terrain and beauty but for many it is a pilgrimage which creates a unique atmosphere.
