John Brierley’s guide for the Camino Portugues
The guide is up to the excellent standard of the same author’s Camino Frances guide which I bought on your site in 2017 for the 800kms walk we did in June/July 2017. There are some excellent suggestions in this new guide. Well worth the outlay for a bit of “guide comfort” in a handy pocket/backpack size. Thanks Ivar. All the buff has proven very useful in training under the Australian sun in keeping my neck sunburn free. Again thank you Ivar
Excellent online purchasing experience
I ordered online and thought it might take a couple of weeks to get the merchandise. Suddenly, the courier rang the bell. It was only 2 days after online shop order. Amazing! My way started on that day.

Pilgrims guide 2020
It was very easy to find the guide I looked for. Ad it was delivered very fast So I am very satisfied
Clear and informative
I used the John Brierley guide in 2016 when I walked the Frances route. I found the guide informative and quite accurate. The best part was the clear, easy to read maps. Last November I walked the Camino del Norte and used the Wise Pilgrim Guide. The maps were difficult to read and I experienced a number of inaccuracies, or out-of-date items while using the guide along the route. I’m planning to walk the Portuguese route from Lisbon and when I discovered that John Brierley had published a guide for that route, I knew immediately that I wanted his guide for my upcoming Camino. I’ve browsed through the guide and have used it to help plan my itinerary. I look forward to having it with me on my upcoming Camino.
