What a fabulous experience! I enjoyed two tours from this company. Both were marvelous and really helpful in helping me to understand a bit about the long cultural traditions of Mali. I found you because I searched for Mali online, thinking deeply about a storybook of Sundiata that I’ll be bringing to my 11-12 year old students in a couple of weeks. I felt a need to find more of an impression of a country that is so far from mine (Eastern Australia). I’m so glad I found these tours, because they not only gave me an impression of the sights and sounds, the climate and complexity of Mali, but also made me picture myself there and feel how amazing it would be to travel to Mali in person. Thank you to the tour guides and all the people involved!

As always, Papillon Fairtrade service was prompt, professional and helpful. The products were very enjoyable and I love knowing that my money is going to ethical business destinations. This family company operates with genuine sincerity for a better world, while offering quality products and service. Well done!

Since hearing of Monique's journey on the Camino, I have often thought that I would like to do this too. With "My Camino" I am able to experience Monique's journey along with her, and it opened my eyes to how I can walk this journey every day. As I journey through life, I too am presented with people and situations that reflect back to me experiences and personalities that trigger a reaction in me. As Monique says, time for inner work. It is when we can truly accept people for who they are, and where they are on their journey, that we learn to accept ourselves for who we are and where we are on our journey. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is in search of inner peace.

Dear Monique, I felt in love with Mali. The tour is amazing. I love the way how the guide describes the costumes, traditions and his culture. :-)

I have twice visited Mali and both trips were special experiences. Africa is “different” and has much to offer. When you mentioned you would tape and offer virtual tours, I felt excited, and was wondering if I would like it. Having seen the “Manding Tour” I am even more excited. Good guidance, beautiful nature, waterfalls, and routes as you can only experience in Africa; impressively bumpy. The tours are more than worth the money spent. I am looking forward to the next one(s). Keep up the good work!

Just another Camino book? No, this time I was pleasantly surprised. Monique managed to turn 'her' Camino in an intriguing, almost exciting book. It is about the walk, and also about love, self-image, doubt and grow. A very personal story, made accessible for a larger crowd.
