" Walking with Simon is never dull. He knows when to be quiet and gives people space. He understands the spirit of the Camino, the magic, and the history and is observant and respectful of its culture. He is crazy about sheep. " Helen (GB)

I  strongly recommend Walkwithsimon to anybody who is considering walking the Camino with a guide.

​With Simon as an informal guide I walked the first part of the Camino Frances from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Sahagun (430 k).

​I can say that it was a great experience, enhanced by Simon. We felt connected. We stayed in great and varied places (also in churches). We had good talks and shared rituals along the way. There was a lot of fun and enjoyment of each others company as well as being able to walk in a way that gave time and space for yourself.

Simon’s organizing skills are really great. He makes you feel safe, so you can focus on your Way.


Simon, I want to thank you again for my Camino experience, and I do hope you can guide and support a lot of people on their Camino.
