It was my first trip without my family. Brent and Alejandro took care of everything. It was a large group, but I could form a smaller group that traveled with my speed. The food was good. But, the weather was hot. We visited many local churches and attended daily Mass. The hike was easier than I thought. I could use an extra day or two in Madrid and Santiago. The only regret was I over-packed. Also, a woman lost her passport, and the guys stayed back to help her with the hotel and embassy. That was excellent service!
