Porterage on the Camino Portuguese

Past OR future Camino
plan to walk
I completed the Camino Francese last year at age 65 mainly because of the porterage service which I found excellent. I want to do the Portuguese Camino in 1917 and was wondering if this is also offered on this camino. I realize that it is not as well serviced with albergues etc but this luxury for me would be the decider.

I walked from Lisbon to SdC in May/June this year. I did not see any ads for porterage services until I reached Porto. I am confident that they would be available following the Central from Porto to Valenca/Tui and then definitely available from there onwards.

I walked the coastal route from Porto and do not remember seeing any sort of advertising in that region.

Caminho Português Variante Espiritual, May 15-22, 2016
I did the Camino Portugues Variante Espiritual in May of this year and signed up for transport service at the hostel in Tui all the way to Santiago. The hostel made all the arrangements. We just had to give our itinerary with the name/address of the hostel for each night. The company was Tuitrans and it was very good. The cost is normally 5 euros per day but we got a slight discount because there were 10 of us. It was money well spent! I'm 67 and this was my first camino and not having to carry a backpack was a great relief.

Olá, working as hospitaleiro in Angeiras I can highly recommend Tuitrans. We work with this company for years - not an issue at all.
