While I don’t have the inside scoop on other tours, I would have to say that Juan Carlos puts the “authentic” into the journeys. His love for Spain, and the people of Spain allowed us to see through his eyes the specialness of the Camino. He respects everyone, from shepherds, to waiters, to the owners of fine mansions and treats all equally. There was no request made of him that he didn’t try to meet. His goal was always to make the Camino a great experience for each of us. He set a fine example. We came away better people for having been with him.Mary Ellen Boyd, 2019

Undoubtedly a unique and quite luxurious way to walk the Camino de Santiago. My journey this year was a dream come true and is truly the best way to experience the #CaminodeSantiago. Authentic Journeys manages all of the logistics including deluxe accommodations, gourmet meals and transfers; thus allowing you to fully experience the Camino without the worry. Buen Camino!
Thank you for a MOST amazing journey to Santiago. You, Belen and Javier gave so much of yourselves to make me and my fellow pilgrims feel like welcomed family. As you might remember, family is hugely important to me. Thank you for for introducing me to all the fine wines, local cuisines (note: I’m always eating on your videos ;), and especially the “digestive” herbs. Also it was very kind of you to make arrangements for me to get my folder back from Canedo. There was nothing valuable in it but it had papers that meant a lot to me. You and your team helped make memories of a lifetime and I am forever grateful. May good health and much prosperity be your camino.Deanna Verges, 2017
A “bucket list” must. The Camino, led by Duperier’s Authentic Journeys, was the most amazing experience ever. Words can only scratch the true essence of this trip… but my words would say: “The powerful scenery tasted like the most exquisite food, the food and wine made you feel like royalty and the journey took you out of your body into a place of peace!” I’m so thankful that Juan Carlos came into our life by facilitating and coordinating all the events to culminate something that will be with me forever. I hope you choose to give yourself the same experience. Where the road itself is home!Paula Fiorenza, 2016
A truly amazing experience. There is truth in advertising…this was an authentic journey lead by an individual who loves his country, culture and the guests who travel the Camino. The meals and accommodations were first rate and personally selected by Juan Carlos with exceptional care. Although I was confidant that the trip would be fantastic, it still exceeded my expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend this adventure without reservation. Do yourself a favor and make time to travel the Camino, enjoy outstanding meals and lodgings and develop lifelong friendships as Juan Carlos leads you through history.Ed Lipsit, 2015
