Camino Santiago trip - Keith, Sep. 2017

General remarks:
This was a very well organised trip. Staff at Spain is More were always very helpful and responded to e-mails very quickly. The documentation was good and arrived in good time to be used during my planning before departure.
Hotels, baggage transfers and transfer to Sarria:
All hotels and baggage arrangements were good. I particularly liked the charming (and helpful) staff at Hostal Casa Benilde in Palas de Rei, the comfortable room and good food at Hotel O Pino (especially the egg & bacon breakfast !), and the whole experience at the Hotel in Santiago. The hotel in Santiago was not only ideally placed adjacent to the old part of the city, but very close to Plaza Galicia, from where I had to catch an early bus to return to the airport. The hotel in Arzua was the least comfortable, with no hot water early in the morning and thin walls between rooms. My impression was not helped by the fact that my room overlooked a road building activity, which was noisy and periodically shook the building from 15.00 until 19.30.
There were no problems with my taxi from Lavacolla to Sarria and all the baggage transfers were efficient.
Excursion to Finisterre:
This day trip was excellent. I appreciated the fact that we were a small group (9 people, I think), in a small mini-coach. The guide, Laura, was first class and translated everything into English for my benefit. She also answered all my questions and took the trouble to find additional information for me.
We were not rushed at any time, but had 4 stops at interesting places, and saw some nice scenery while travelling.

I would certainly recommend Spain is More to any friends wishing to walk the Camino.
