Why us?Testimonials

After pandemic delays, I was finally able to make my Camino dreams come true! I have traveled many places and my time savoring the slow walk on the Camino is at the top of my list. Juan Carlos and Belen took care of everything; all we had to do was wake up, lace up our shoes, and enjoy! The accommodations were stellar, the food was delicious and plentiful, and the people of Spain won my heart. Every day on the trail was a new and beautiful discovery. I am so very grateful that I waited patiently for my time on the Camino… a truly life-changing experience.

A day on the Camino de Santiago with Juan Carlos and Belen as our tour guides was magical and exciting! I will never forget the beautiful days hiking in Spain and the excellent food. The accommodations were fit for a king and very comfortable. The trip was well planned out and the highlights were spectacular in each area we enjoyed. I believe everyone should experience the Camino de Santiago with Juan Carlos, because a day with Juan Carlos is the best day ever!

A Duperier Authentic Journey is truly one of a kind and should not be missed. The food, scenery, and accommodations will not disappoint, and one journey will likely turn into many. I feel quite fortunate to have experienced the ‘magic’ of Juan Carlos and Belen on the French Camino in May 2022. They are unique and special individuals, radiating absolute joy for the Camino and their country. Both are knowledgeable and curious, considerate and humble, funny and entertaining. I arrived at the Camino hoping for a good walk challenge and a better life perspective… I returned with so much.”

Thank you to Juan Carlos, our physiotherapist Belen and driver Jose for making my third Camino walk with you the memorable experience that it was! It seems magical that each walk I have taken with you is beyond extraordinary. Beyond the personal fulfilment and peace the walk imparts, your guidance and choice of accommodations, restaurants and cultural sites are exceptional! Belen’s presence also contributes to making this experience magnificent. Her encouragement, cultural knowledge, and therapeutic massages add immensely to the journey. I have come away always feeling whole. The complement of people on each trip I have taken is quite amazing. I have made lasting friendships as a result. Thank you seems inadequate, for each experience has enriched my life in so many ways. I look forward to walking once again, it is a gift to self that keeps on giving.
