Then We Walked escorted walk to Santiago 2022

I’m very lucky because I’ve had the pleasure of walking with several groups on the camino. Here are some of the kind words that folks have sent me :

Camino Frances 2021

Colleen is no doubt the best in organising a small group and finding the best in accommodation. From a super comfy bunk to, for me, luxury.

It’s not a ‘tour’ with Colleen. Walk your own way, in your own time. With a bed at the end of the day. I’m 65.. Walked from St Jean Pied de Port à Burgos with Colleen in September 2021. And from Burgos to Santiago in May this year.

You want to walk it but think you’re not capable/fit enough? You are, you can.

Camino Frances 2019

When I tentatively contacted Colleen to ask if I might join her Camino Taster, I was 71 and two months on from a serious stomach operation, so didn’t imagine that I presented a promising candidate for such a rigorous workout. However, to my surprise, Colleen immediately made space for me, did all the organisational heavy lifting and, three months later, I made the walk from Pamplona to Logrono and had a ball.   If you want to walk the Camino, but are unsure how to go about it, Colleen will be your companion, your mentor and your friend. And some of her extensive knowledge will, inevitably, rub off on you!

Camino Frances 2022

This was a walk of a lifetime for me, up there with the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu! A huge thanks needs to go to Colleen Sims and her superb organizational skills – I wouldn’t have gone if it hadn’t been for her putting on this expedition. Well worth signing up for – I’m going to do another one, hopefully next year.
