FAQ's for The Camino de Santiago, Guided Tour

Camino de Santiago Tour







Duration: 11 days / 10 nights
Distance: The Last 151 KMs to Santiago

The crown jewel of Spanish walking trails, the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela began as an act of faith as Europeans crossed Spain to visit the sacred tomb of Saint James. One thousand years later, the Camino continues to draw the spiritual as well as the traveler looking to enjoy the beauty of the green rolling hills and small hamlets of northwestern Spain's Galicia. Come be part of this magical route that is very special for us - it is on the Camino where the idea for Fresco Tours was first born in 1999.

FAQ's for A Fresco Start 200KM, Your Self-Guided Walk

Camino de Santiago Tour





Duration: 13 days / 12 nights
Distance: The Last 200 KMs to Santiago

I first walked the Camino de Santiago in 1999 and since then have led over 80 groups along the Way. Over the years, I've seen many pilgrims walk, cycle, horseback and a few wheelchairs on their way to Santiago de Compostela. While we are very proud of our high-quality, full-service, scheduled cultural walking tours of the Camino de Santiago, we also recognize that some people would rather not have a guide and there are others that just do not like "group tours", despite the fabulous gourmet picnics we prepare!
