Buen Camino with Fresco Tours

Challenging self guided hike, from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela. But what a most rewarding personal experience! Our group did wonder whether Elba (Fresco Tours) ever sleep as she was always there with her reassuring responses to our needs, pre Camino.
The local guides Ana (Sarria) and Xavier ( Santiago de Compostela) rose beyond their duties. If there is ever a need to do the Camino, the place to start is with Fesco Tours.

one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences

The Walk on the Camino will remain as one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences. It was only possible because of Fresco Tours excellent planning, preparation, and terrific guides who anticipated every detail. And, we had a great group. Alissa was personally very helpful to me with great advice as I planned my month in Spain and Portugal prior to the Camino. I had a fabulous time and am anxious to return to visit many more wonderful destinations.

My Camino

Loved every aspect of my Camino walk this month with my daughter and friends, supported by the superb guides and coordination of Fresco Tours. The guides were the best I have ever encountered, the meals superb and with one exception, the hotels were of the highest quality. I would recommend Fresco Tours to anyone considering a guided walk of the Camino.

Fresco Tours is the best way to see the Camino

We did the French Camino with Fresco Tours 5 years ago and decided to do the Kinder Portuguese Camino with some friends this time. Our guides Ana and Piero were fantastic, and we even had dinner with a Count at one of the Manor Houses! The food (picnic and restaurants) were great. Raul the bus driver was also great, and we always felt we were being well looked after, learning and having fun!

Wonderful experience on the Camino

I had long wanted to walk the Camino de Santiago, but was put off by the very high prices charged by other companies. A relative found Fresco Tours, whose charges were much more reasonable. I was expecting quite a basic experience as a result, but it couldn't have been better. The accommodation ranged from perfectly adequate to superb, and we had a helpful map for each day with recommended cafes and restaurants in route. The Fresco Tours staff are wonderful - helpful and friendly. I have no hesitation in recommending them, and am definitely considering another trip with them.

Camino from Sarria with Fresco Tours

We started our Camino in Sarria with Fresco Tours. You do not need to look any further as Fresco Tours is absolutely the best! They are very organized and very responsive to emails (thank you Raul and Elba) They provide you with the best accommodations, transfer of luggage, daily maps with restaurant suggestions, attractions, restrooms, etc. I plan to walk the Camino again in 2 years with Fresco Tours.

Fresco Tours delivered beyond our expectations

We did the Frances Kinder Camino with Fresco Tours. The itinerary was perfect with extra sights to see along the way, great manor houses to stay, wonderful dinners just for our group and two guides, Ana and Raul who were interesting, entertaining, patient, and most knowledgeable. We were concerned because of our age, I am 81, that it might be too much, but not so. It was a good workout for sure, but Fresco Tours made it a wonderful enjoyable experience, with their vans and guides always there for us. Go Fresco Tours - they are the best!

French Camino

Fresco Tours does the best guided tours of the Camino. We did the Portuguese with them last year and the French this year. They are excellent and with the very small groups (we had 12 this year), we got to know everyone and had so much fun together. Our guides, David and Hector, were excellent, and I would go with them again and again! If you're considering walking part of the Camino, do it with Fresco Tours!!

Stay Fresh with Fresco Tours on the Camino

My wife and I spent 11 enjoyable, memorable days hiking the Camino de Santiago with Fresco Tours. Ana and Roberto, our two guides, were energetic, knowledgeable and pleasant. They prepared us for each day’s hike with local knowledge and memorable insights. There were historic churches, medieval structures, local experiences and “characters of the Camino” we would never have discovered without our guides. They were a joy to have with us. Each night’s lodging was fabulous. The meals were terrific with local specialties ranging from octopus, Don Pedro peppers and calamari. Each day’s hike included a refreshing picnic en route that was prepared by our guides. We were nervous about our ability to hike over 100 km, but the pace, camaraderie and unique experiences of each day made it a truly wonderful adventure.

Carol and Hector provided a wonderful tour on the Camino Norte. We had eight family members in our group with a wide range of ages and hiking experience. There was a great availability of options daily for a hike that was more challenging than the French Way. The Basque food was delicious and the fellowship with our group of 16 plus guides will be treasured.

Kinder Camino Tour

On August 27 our journey began and 11 strangers, two guides and a bus driver become one. Every mile walked was viewed through both my lenses (eye and camera) and senses as I had the opportunity to speak with many individuals from around the world who were walking the Camino for a variety of reasons.

Our guides Jeffery and David went above and beyond to ensure our experience was top notched. Their local knowledge added to the experience and after a few days our brains were overloaded with knowledge. What else can I say but Fresco Tours went above and beyond to ensure our trip was one to remember. To my fellow pilgrims whom I shared meals and stories with, and the occasional sticky yellow drink, be safe until we once again cross paths. To those I have yet to meet and want to experience the Camino without the hassle of struggling to book accommodation, side trips, etc., I would highly recommend Fresco Tours for a once in a lifetime experience.

Being a vegan on the Kinder Camino tour

I'm just back from the 11-day Kinder Camino tour starting from Leon/Sarria. And since it's probably boring to hear more about what knowledgeable and warm guides David and Jeffery are, what a fantastic company Alex runs, how flawless the logistics were, how peaceful and serene the countryside was, I thought I'd write about what it was like as a vegan on the trip since I haven't yet seen a post about that.

Breakfast was absolutely necessary to fuel up. A cafe solo to start. Granola and cereals, lots of fresh and dried fruit and nuts. Biscuits. Some manor homes had soy or almond milk and soy yogurt, peanut butter. Pan con tomate. One place even offered vegan cold cuts!

Picnic lunches provided lots of choices. Jeffery or David would make a special portion for me, leaving out the cheese in the pesto pasta or the salad. Lentil and bean salads. Fruit skewers. Dark chocolate with nuts. Lettuce wedges with roasted peppers. White asparagus. Crusty freshly baked bread. Honeydew and crenshaw melon sweeter than you've ever had. Dark chocolate with nuts. Wine, beer, Kas sodas.

For dinner, whether we were in the manor home or a restaurant, there was always a choice for me. Vegetarian paella. Bountiful plates of grilled vegetables. Roasted padron peppers. Vegetable primavera. Stuffed mushroooms. Eggplant "burger." Falafel patties. Risotto and vegetables. Ratatouille. Zucchini soup. Hummus. The potatoes in Galicia, whether boiled, roasted, or fried have so much more flavor than ours in the US! A coffee grappa or a herb one to top off the meal. Many times, my fellow pilgrims would eye my food even as they feasted on tender lamb, hake, pulpo or empanadas.

If you're a ovo-vegetarian, you could add the marvelous tortilla (potato & egg sometimes onion omelette), the Santiago cake (almond), pasteis de nata (Portuguese custard tarts), and a variety of pastries, cakes, and macaroons. And a lacto vegetarian could enjoy the omnipresent flan, cheesecake, and local cheeses from Arzua (the Galician cheese capital).

Suffice it to say, that though I was walking 3-4 times more than I do in New York, I came back from Spain with an extra 2 pounds. Buen provecho!

We were truly blessed with our total experiences

The experience is one I will never forget & hope to encourage others to give it a go, especially through Fresco Tours.
Your constant attention, advice & suggestions made our journey more pleasurable & smooth sailing. And those hotels?!?! Fabulous boutique hotels with their own personalities, were a gift every night. Sharon & I both loved the walking. I especially enjoyed doing it solo. We generally began at 7:30 after consuming an exquisite breakfast & a cafe con leche, the very best coffee I have ever had. Sharon & I would walk together for a bit, then at the sign of the fist hill, we hug, & she scampered up the hill like a bunny, me following, more like the tortoise. After the first two days of heat, the weather could not have been more perfect. No rain during our walking time and no blisters.
We were truly blessed with our total experience. Thank you for everything.

Great Experience, great guides

Our group did part of the French Way through Fresco Tours. We were five Canadian friends and were joined by two more people. With a group of seven pilgrims and two guides we started our trek. It was the most fabulous experience. From the beautiful Manor’s we stayed in to the food and especially the great picnics. There wasn’t anything Fresco or our guides didn’t think of. There amazing ways of making sure we were comfortable became known in our group as “The Magic of the Camino”. Thank you Fresco Tours and our two incredible guides for helping make this a trip of a life time.

Amazing Experience and Amazing Guides

THANK YOU, Fresco Tours, Irene, and Dora! Our group had an amazing journey with you. We went with a group of 6 family and friends and were joined by two great sisters traveling together. We traveled with two 16-year-old boys who loved it. It was the perfect combination of freedom and guidance. We did the "Kinder Camino" tour.

I can't say enough good things about our guides. They were so friendly and lovely and it was a pleasure spending the trip with them. They were great with my mom, in her 80s and doing her second trip, and were perfect knowing which stretches she could walk and which she shouldn't. Their picnics were amazing, and I came away loving the fresh local foods. I'd definitely take another tour with Fresco Tours and highly recommend it.

memories that I will treasure always

I feel as if I know you only because of the many conversations you have had with my Auntie Barbara, and how your guides have shared your story and the development of your most successful company. I had every intention of writing to you after our first Fresco tour, 5 years ago, but like so many other people, a customer satisfaction letter fell further down in the priority queue. But not this time.

Over a year ago Auntie decided that the only way to celebrate her upcoming 85th birthday was to expand upon the incredible adventure she and I shared for her then almost 80th, but this time the trip would include her daughter and grandson. While delighted by the prospect of returning, I admit I had concerns. How would this woman with nothing but fond memories of Jason and Raul, ever be satisfied with different guides? These two men knocked it out of the ball park and gave us both the experience of a lifetime. She is fairly traditional in her gender role expectations, and she had often mentioned their strength and knowledge, and ability to plan and care for us. As we flew over the Atlantic Ocean, I reminded her, "Auntie- keep an open mind. This is a whole different trip. A whole new wonderful. So it's probably better if we keep comparisons to a minimum, ok?"

Then came our first day of walking the Kinder Camino early this July. The steep climb left her winded, sweaty, and thirsty. She admitted that it was too much. It was time for Dora and Irene to work their magic. Immediately they created a plan that would enable her to be picked up by the ever dependable Manuel and get a lift to the check point stage, where she would get a cold drink, rest in the shade and greet us as we all made our way to gather.

From that first day on the trail, both Irene and Dora treated my Auntie with such respect and dignity, never making her guilty or burdensome. Their emphasis was 100% about finding a way she could participate, in accentuating her abilities, not her disabilities. They conferred together, using their wisdom of the trail and crafted an individual Barbara Plan daily. Their in-depth knowledge of the path enabled them to choose the spots that worked best for us.

This dynamic duo teamed up to exceed our expectations. Their chemistry is beyond positive, and they clearly enjoy each other's company and respect each other's abilities. Irene and Dora won us all over instantly with their wealth of knowledge, infinite patience, spectacular picnics, and personal touches. Irene anticipated that maybe the boys would play tennis at the manor home and acquired paddles for them, Dora heard me say I wanted to try local yogurt and secured some at an indoor luncheon. Several of us left items behind and they were magically returned. Vegetarian meals were never regarded as a nuisance or second thought. Our glasses were filled literally and figuratively. It's the intuitive and empathic work of the guides in the field, in this case Dora and Irene, who helped make someone's dream come true, even though the trip turned out much differently than she had expected. All of you made this woman's dream a reality, despite the limits. Thank you so very much for that. We made memories that I will treasure always.

one of the best things I have ever done in my life

I wanted to tell you how much this tour meant to me: it is one of the best things I have ever done in my life. Seriously. It was really hard and really, really fun. And Fresco Tours made it happen. I enjoyed all the places where we stayed, Lestedo and Nene especially.

I always felt very cared for by Fresco Tours, the service is so personal. From the start when we were planning, organizing and peppering you with questions, to Irene’s tour and introduction (love her!) and the first night’s dinner with the chef for whom well-done is something you say at the end of the tour, to all the work of transferring our bags and arranging the places to stay, everything was lovely and special. You are the best! I will happily recommend you all to others. What an adventure. I am sending you many sincere and heart-felt thanks.

All you need are hiking boots!

I planned to complete the French Camino myself, sleeping in albergues/hostels and walking the Way in about 40 days.

Unfortunately, I injured my right knee and contemplated going home after completing about 200 km. I checked in with friends in the U.S., one of whom had completed the Sarria to Santiago de Compostela stage with Fresco Tours. After speaking with her, I decided to book the Fresco Tours tour about a week prior to its start.

The meal and lodging arrangements were first class but I liked the lunch picnics the best. We enjoyed guide prepared regional dishes and specialties plus dessert! Once I joined the tour, I did not worry about one thing - not even my second backpack, weighing about 15 kg. It was moved and waiting in my luxe room after each day’s walk. I was injured but was able to complete several stages and 80% of most days. They always circled back to make sure I was safe.

I am so happy I did not let my injury stop me from completing my dream - the feeling of walking into the square in Santiago is one I will long remember. The only way I was able to accomplish this was with the help and support of Raul and Hector, my competent Fresco Tours guides.

Walking a Pilgrimage Together

Sixteen members of the congregation I serve in Ohio, walked the El Camino together, in June of 2019. We had a wonderful experience and were aware of God's presence through our many experiences on the Camino. We felt blessed by our pilgrimage and will be sharing the experience with members in August.

Fresco Tours was very helpful with the details of our Camino Pilgrimage. We walked the self guided tour from Sarria to Santiago (115 km). All our daily concerns were worked out a head of time. This allowed the leaders of the tour to focus on and encourage spiritual reflection when we gathered each evening as a group. Thank you Fresco Tours for helping this dream become a reality for our congregation.

I am glad I decided to mark the occasion of my retirement by walking the Camino with Fresco Tours. I could not have asked for more collegial travel companions than the 9 fellow pilgrims that made up our group. Our guides Hector and Alís did an excellent job organizing our daily treks and preparing our wonderful all fresco lunches each day. They enriched our experience by taking us off the Camino to investigate some additional sites along the way. The other pleasant surprise were the "pazos" we stayed in at night. Each inn had its own charm and character and provided hearty breakfasts and and delicious dinners with farm to table freshness. I will definitely look into other tours operated by Fresco Tours.

Fellowship, friendship, and accomplishment

Awesome experience on the kinder Camino de Santiago. 3 years ago myself and 2 other friends discussed walking the Camino, ultimately 6 of us just completed walking the Camino. None of us envisioned how well we would be taken care of from the initial planning via email to final completion. I have been totally impressed by the thoroughness and follow through of each request, hotels prior to and after (we did some sight-seeing in Madrid and Santiago), train tickets and a food tour were arranged by Alissa. The tour guides, Piero and Roberto, made this walk special via their knowledge, enthusiasm, ever watchful care (myself and another friend walked very slowly), changes due to weather were seamlessly made, the evening meeting kept our group informed of the next day walk with a printed plan, and the picnic lunches by Piero superb. Our bus driver, Raul, also provide safe travel. The restaurants and evening accommodations excellent. Needless, to say Fresco tour made this a wonderful and unforgettable experience with friends.

The trip worked out perfect for me and I would do it again. I will refer others to use your service.
I loved all of the accommodations that you arranged for us. Lynn was very grateful for the rides and enjoyed her visit with you. I am sorry that Lynn did not get to walk, but I found that I actually preferred to walk alone. Mostly because I enjoyed a slower pace than most walkers.
Irene was fun and provided us with an excellent Camino start. The information provided for each section of the trip was very helpful. It was an amazing trip. But I have to say the best part is that I am amazed at myself and that I did it.
For many months you have helped us with our arrangements and answers to our questions. Our travel to and from Spain went as smooth as it possibly could have. I love the trains all over Europe. The USA should be so wise and have trains like those.

My Camino de Santiago with Fresco Tours was one of the most amazing experiences in my life. I completed their Kinder Camino on October 5, 2018 and have only wonderful things to say about this journey. From the moment I booked my tour with Fresco Tours, I knew that I made the right decision. Alissa, their coordinator, took care of every detail and always took care of my requests. Hector and Alis, our guides, were superb. I knew immediately that I was in good hands with them. They taught us so much about the Camino and so much about their beautiful country. As a single woman in my 60's, I highly recommend Fresco Tours for the Camino de Santiago.

Wonderful way to walk the Camino

We booked our tour with Fresco Tours on the recommendation of a friend and after looking at several other tour companies - we are so happy we did! Hovering around 60 years old and in good physical condition, we wanted a Camino experience that challenged us physically and spiritually, but still provided flexibility to walk at our own pace, be with a group or not for meals and sight seeing, transported our luggage, and selected comfortable lodging each night. Fresco Tours did all of this and more, flawlessly. We felt that the 200 km tour was just the right length to get into the pilgrim groove but not too long as to occupy all of our vacation time. We were very fortunate that the seven other pilgrims who shared our itinerary were wonderful people and became close friends during the walk. Although, with research one could select and book the hotels on their own and arrange for luggage transfer, it was very comforting to know that Fresco Tours was just a phone call away if problems presented, which they didn't. If you are thinking of hiking the Camino, look at what Fresco Tours offers - you will be glad you did.

Everything was very well planned. And Alex, the owner of Fresco Tours showed up and walked with us one day. What a treat! My friend and I are from Louisiana and we quickly learned that Galician flat is not the same as La. flat. But we did it! Great trip in every Way!

Perfect Way to walk the Camino - supported

Just finished 120 km with Fresco Tours "Kinder Camino". It was a perfectly organized trip from initial contact to all pre-trip planning for things like hotel rooms pre-trip and trains from Madrid to Leon, to the walk itself. We stayed in lovely old manors we never would have found on our own, ate wonderful food, drank good wine - all superbly organized by Fresco Tours. Our guides were knowledgeable and engaging on everything from Spanish history to Spanish wines. The "Kinder" version meant that we did the trek a little slower than traditional trips. As a 70+ and - couple we appreciated that and found the distances very manageable. It was a truly rewarding trip and we are planning on "keeping walking" so we can add another section of the Camino to our accomplishments - definitely with Fresco Tours again.

Great Camino

I'm still processing my Camino, but Fresco Tours did a great job for us.

My wife and I -- and several friends from college -- did a 200 km self-guided trip with Fresco Tours starting in Ponferrada, Spain and ending in Santiago. The hotels were good to great, which you have to expect walking across Northern Spain. They managed luggage transfers from hotel to hotel splendidly. And when we had issues, such as a lost t-shirt or sunglasses, Fresco Tours stepped up and found the items and forwarded them to our hotels downstream. How cool is that?

Our best experience happened when one of our friends had a medical issue. Fresco Tours arranged for my friend to meet with a doctor and then rent a car when it became clear he could not continue walking the Camino.

I cannot say enough good things about Fresco Tours. When I return to Spain, and I will, my first call will be to Fresco Tours. They look after their clients.

Fresco Tours - highly recommended !

Just finished my first visit to Spain, and my first excursion with Fresco Tours. I would highly recommend them. They arranged for my non-escorted tour on the Camino de Santiago, and everything was superb. Their help with pre-trip planning and questions was invaluable. They were extremely well organized, and made the process so easy.

Once on the Camino, the information they provided in the orientation packet was exactly what was needed to plan each day's hike. And the hotels they reserved for us along the Road were clean, modern and offered great food options.

The Fresco Tours staff is absolutely dedicated to making the Camino experience the best possible... I've already recommended them to friends, and plan to use them again.

The Heart and Warmth of Fresco Tours

Our recent Camino was our 2nd with Fresco Tours. I couldn't think of anyone else to walk with especially after an unforgettable first Camino in May 2017. What struck me most was the heart and warmth of the staff of Fresco Tours, from the time we first contacted them to during the walk and after. My sister and I were touched by the hospitality and most of all, the care for our 84 year old father during his 1st Camino and again, recently. Papa had a wonderful and joyful time. Fresco Tours made our Camino and time in Spain so very special.

My experience with Fresco Tours has included two excursions along the Camino de Santiago. I know that I will reach out to Fresco Tours again when the Camino calls again. The personnel were professional, personal, and exceptional. My first Camino was personal. The second included university students and many moving parts. Fresco Tours made planning the trips easy, comfortable, and reliable. Honestly, please consider this wonderful tour group if you are interested in the Camino, its multiple routes, and want to walk along The Way worry free. They're amazing.

Meditative and Awe Inspiring

My college roommate and I decided to celebrate our 70th birthday year and our 50 year friendship by walking the last 115K of the Camino. We began our self-guided tour in Sarria and walked for 6 days to Santiago. The Camino was amazing. Daily walking the path through villages, meadows, forests and rural roads was meditative and awe inspiring. The accommodations arranged by Fresco Tours staff were welcomed and comfortable. Each day's map grounded me with helpful and thorough information. Our send off meal and orientation with David in Sarria was awesome. Thank you all at Fresco Tours.

Rolls Royce of the Camino!

It has been 17 days since we ended our Camino with Fresco Tours and 8 days since we said goodbye to Spain from Barcelona. But I am still missing the experience and time I shared with my sister, Michelle and my dad, Michael, our fellow pilgrims, Veronica, Shanna, Simon, Eduardo, Rita, Jill and our wonderful guides from Fresco Tours, Ana and David.

The experience touched my very soul and until today I am still reflecting on those very special 9 days that I will always hold close to my heart.

Before I left for the Camino, I spoke with a friend who had just returned from the Camino. When I mentioned we were going with Fresco Tours, she said, “Oh! You will be well taken care of because they are the Rolls Royce of the Camino!" I was already impressed that she had heard of Fresco Tours and even more surprised by her comment. Few in Singapore have gone for the Camino and for those that I know of, they were mostly self-guided and led by a priest from Singapore.

After experiencing the Camino with Fresco Tours first hand, I must say Fresco Tours is even more than the Rolls Royce of the Camino. I have never experienced others but its a tough act to follow.

Coming from a background that involved event management, I could see how much thought was put into the whole design of this tour and most of all the hard work that comes before, during and after. You have an amazing team. What makes Fresco Tours a few notches above the rest I would say are the people.

Alissa has been such a pleasure to correspond with, even though most of the time she was corresponding with Michelle, I was following silently, she was always ready to help and always reverting so promptly.

Ana and David, they captivated me with their knowledge of the country, culture, history of Spain and the Camino. But what impressed me most was their attention to detail and to the needs of each of us. This touched me very much. Always professional so very hardworking, but what sets them apart from other guides is their sincerity, care and concern.

Last but not least, a special mention to 3 lovely ladies who we would not have known about if Ana and David had not mentioned them to us at our last dinner together. Patricia, Mireia and Sandra, the unsung Heroes, their hard work could be seen in the organization and efficiency of the entire tour. I am sure they were the backbone of the tour.

On behalf of Michelle, my dad and myself – Thank you Alex and an outstanding team for an unforgettable and life-changing experience on the Camino.

Fresco Tours is more than the Rolls Royce of the Camino for me because it sparkles and stands out amongst all the others.

We did the 115 K version of the Camino de Santiago as a self-guided tour with Fresco Tours. They did an excellent job of providing us with necessary trail information (arranged by day), arranging fine accommodations along the Camino, and ensuring our luggage was waiting for us at our next location. We had an orientation guide at the beginning where we discussed the trip and oriented us to the trail markers during the beginning of our first trail day.

the most value packed tours available

Dear Alex,
I can not begin to tell you how wonderful David and Irene were on our Camino journey. They made the trip! I can go on and on about them. They are so knowledgeable about the Camino. They knew the hotel owners, the coffee shop folks, the horses, the cows and it just keeps going. Jane is 79 and I am 73 so having those 2 as guides was what got us thru the Camino. I was always last to finish but I knew one of the 2 would always be nearby.
I have written our travel agent Liz, American Express rave reviews in hopes of getting you more business. Jane and I have traveled with A and K to Africa and Nepal , Vermont cycles, and Backroads to Macha Picchu. Your company surpasses them in every way. I feel that your Camino is one of the most value packed tours available. It is top drawer.
Alex, thank you for providing us a wonderful journey and for having David and Irene lead us thru it. I love those 2! They are special people. Thank you, Kate Brady

The "Kinder Camino"

The "Camino" speaks for itself, but what makes it special is what Fresco Tours provides to you in the way of accommodations, food and especially office staff and guides. From the start, Alissa couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful than if she was my personal assistant. Our accommodations were what made the Camino special for us. Manor homes (Pazos) and hotels that were beyond any expectations. And the food! There was actually too much for my liking, but you don't have to eat it all Our guides David and Jaume were an excellent team and individually were wonderful to walk along with. Their knowledge of all things Camino was very impressive. I would recommend Fresco Tours without hesitation to anyone.

Wonderful experience

We walked the 153 kilometre Portuguese Camino in a 15 member tour group organized and managed by the Spanish based Fresco organization in May 2018. This was a wonderful experience due to the historical and geographical background of Portugal and Spain greatly enhanced by the staff of the Fresco organization and the friendliness of members of the tour group (none of whom we had previously known). The tour package included the carriage of baggage, expert guides, gourmet meals, high quality and quantity local wines and both modern and historic manor accommodation. The Fresco staff were quite excellent in every way. The experiences were just perfect.

Fresco tours made this long-anticipated walk along the Camino de Santiago everything we could have hoped for. Our wonderful guides, Roberto and Dora, did everything possible to make this the trip of a lifetime for the seven pilgrims in our group. This tour featured a carefully planned walking route with backup support on a comfortable bus, wonderful meals featuring local cuisine, fantastic wayside picnics, and accommodations in beautiful country Pazos. Our tour ended with the dramatic swinging of the Botafumeiro during the Pilgrim Mass in the Cathedral of Santiago. All things considered, our experience with Fresco Tours could not have been better.

10 stars if possible

Our guides Alís and Raul were fun attentive and always helpful. We thought it would be better if we could choose our meal options but Fresco and our guides arranged wonderful meals which exposed us to the local cuisine much better than if we had tried to navigate menus. Same with the hotels - all were either well located or great spots, usually both. The arrangements are seamless with Fresco doing all the work of arrangements and baggage transfer. If you didn't feel like walking or just part way that was accomplished. This is a top flight agency - use it with confidence!

Camino de Santiago......Best Possible Camino Experience

I found Fresco Tours on line in searching for a way to walk The Camino. Alissa in the office was a valuable source of information during our planning period, and once we arrived in Leon we were very lucky to have David and Pedro as our guides. Their in-depth knowledge of The Camino provided our group of twelve with experiences we would have missed on our own. Walking The Camino is something I had wanted to do for a long time, but actually doing it was more than I ever expected. Kudos to Fresco for making our trip so memorable.

I had picked this company based on the trip advisor reviews and they did not disappoint. They specialize in walking tours of Spain and they are a Spanish company, so they know their stuff. We decided to do the Fresco Start Camino de Santiago and it was an amazing experience. The team at Fresco are first rate (shout out to Elba!) and were always available to answer any questions. Hotels were wonderful, the information was comprehensive and the Galicia area of Spain is stunning! Now, you need to be prepared for this. You need to train, especially walking hills ,as this is not a stroll! You may curse yourself at times wondering 'what was I thinking!' However, this is ultimately an incredibly rewarding personal experience. You do not walk in a group and it does not have to be religious pilgrimage. For us it was 'a resting of the mind and an exercise of the body!' Which in itself,is a religious experience.

I am looking forward to returning next year to walk the Portugal Way with Fresco Tours.

My Best Travel Experience

We did the Kinder Camino Tour in May and it has been my best travel experience, thanks to the excellence of the organization of excursions and excellent outdoor guides. I can't say enough about the cool expert handling every aspect of the tour, from assistance with every detail before you get to the guides, the accommodation, the food and restaurants, and even the unexpected gift of a photo gallery taken by the guides. Our journey included trips to places we would never have seen without guides, and which in itself is valuable beyond measure. Monasteries, an ancient Celtic fortress just out of the way (where we could see dozens of pilgrims going below), and a lot of historical elements that are invaluable and you can easily lose without experienced guides.

Camino de Santiago Tour

From Japan

ポルトガルの国境からサンチャゴまでの118キロ8日間の巡礼の旅ですが、着替等の荷物は毎日ホテルからホテルにツアー会社が運んでくれます。 宿泊施設は巡礼宿のアルベルゲではなく、バスタブもあるホテルが予約されています。 ガイドは初日だけコースの説明をしてくれますが、あとはマイペースで歩けます。 ツアー参加者と意気投合して、ディナーは盛り上がりました。 トラブルがあってもツアー会社に連絡すると迅速に対応してくれました。 特に担当のElba には予約時から大変お世話になりました。この場を借りて御礼致します。 Trip Advisor

The Best Guides (and So Much More!)

Just a quick note to say that once again we had a wonderful trip with Fresco. We want to thank you for all the "behind the scenes" coordination, and we again express our appreciation to Jason and Hector for being the best guides (and so much more!) ever! It was a great Camino experience for us. Many thanks.

A Memory I Shall Treasure Forever

How wonderful to meet you at dinner. That was a special treat to put a face to a name. I just wanted to thank you so much for the care you took with my reservation and making sure that everything was in perfect order so that my Camino was the best it could be. It is a memory I shall treasure forever and I hope to come back to Spain one day in the future. You are the best

Have Already Recommended Your Tours

What a wonderful experience we had! Thank you for organizing and keeping us up to date with our tour. Alís and Raul were fabulous, so supportive and always with a smile. Their assistance was much appreciated. All we had to do was walk, Fresco arranged and provided everything, it was great. Might even consider another walk in the future. Have already recommended your tours to others. Kind regards.

Everything was So Delicious

Vaughan and I want to express our deepest thanks to David and Ana. They made the tour awesome. Their historical knowledge and anecdotes, how history impacts today's culture, highlighting local culture for us and the cultural recipes and food. Luckily, we maintained our weight between the hiking and over eating :-)! Everything was so delicious. I personally want to thank them for the care they took to prepare 2 versions of many salads to ensure one was gluten free and working with the hotels, manor homes and restaurants to ensure gluten free options. Vaughan has traveled far more extensively than I have and he agreed this was one of the best trips he has taken.

An Extra Special Holiday

Alissa, We really enjoyed the tour and we would like to say that all your guides/drivers were very professional and really made the tour an extra special holiday. The hotels were great and picnic lunches were most refreshing, so thanks again for a very special and professional operation, which we would highly recommend to others. Thanks again, David and Sarah

Cannot Recommend Them Enough

Having looked at a number of tour companies online before deciding on Fresco Tours, I was incredibly glad that I chose them for our trip. The personal care, the hotels/pensions, the organising and pre trip contact were all fabulous. 14 people wandering through Galicia with no idea where they were but who knew where they wanted to get to - every one of the group have congratulated me on choosing Fresco Tours....every one of the group would use them again for another Camino. It was wonderful, and organised and felt safe knowing that someone was always available to offer assistance. We met other Fresco groups along the way and we all said how wonderful they were, Cannot recommend them enough. Alissa our guide for the first day, Elba who we corresponded with, the other Fresco guides who we met along the way and who were always happy to help with any needs..... thank you all.

A Fan For Life

We cannot express how wonderful the whole tour was, from the accommodation (lovely), meals (fantastic) and our always entertaining guides Jason & Jeffery, with a coffee addiction worse than mine... terrific! Also blessed with other lovely travelers in our group, a perfect holiday with a good mix of different terrains, scenery and regional specialty foods and wines, so interesting! A fan for life.
