Kinder Camino

Camino de Santiago Tour

“I did the Galicia section of the Camino in October 2017 and I would do it all again tomorrow if I could. The Fresco people were amazing. Alissa kept us informed from the very start to the very end. Our guides Ana and Roberto were fantastic and no problem was too much for them. The lunches they prepared were really something, so much so we asked for the recipes. It has been the highlight of my year and no doubt will continue to be a highlight in my life. The people I met on the walk were fantastic. I am now hoping to do the walk from Portugal. Thank you Fresco for a wonderful experience. ”

a wonderful group of people

Camino de Santiago Tour

“Thanks so much for all you did to make this such a great trip for us. The Madrid hotels were great, trains worked out perfectly, and you made our travel effortless. Also a big thank you for putting together such a wonderful group of people for us to travel with, we had such a good time! The Camino was a delight and we couldn't have asked for better guides than David and Ana. They were fun, creative and full of wisdom and information. They are also great cooks! When you found them you hit the jackpot! We just had the best time on this trip and thanks to all at Fresco involved in making it so.”

Highly recommend this walk and Fresco

Camino de Santiago Tour

“Loved our 200KM Self-Guided Tour of the Camino (French route). Fresco focused on professionally handling the logistics (hotels, luggage transfer, information about each day walk and things of interest such as recommended restaurants). We were free to focus on our walk, connections with others and nature. Highly recommend this walk and Fresco.”

exactly what we wanted

Camino de Santiago Tour

“Overall we are very satisfied with our Frescotours Camino. The entire experience was what we looking for. Staff, hotels, meals, the Camino all get top marks. For a couple of aging baby-boomers this was just exactly what we wanted.”

Fantastic Camino experience

Camino de Santiago Tour

“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.”

lucky to have them as our guides

Life altering Trip!

Camino de Santiago Tour




“Our pilgrimage on the Camino Trail was life altering. It was inspiring to see all ages, shapes and levels of fitness, each doing the trail for their own reasons. We did the 200 km self guided tour with Fresco and they did an incredible job. The daily maps were essential and finding our luggage in our room at the end of each day was just what we needed. The group that started the tour were amazing people. If I could bottle the physical, emotional and spiritual feelings, I would share with everyone so that they would do this journey. No one should miss it. Fresco is the only way to go!”

Unforgettable Camino Tour

Camino de Santiago Tour

“I joined the September 2017 Camino Portugues tour as a solo traveler and everything about this trip was wonderful! Fresco Tours did an amazing job organizing this walk. Well organized logistics, delicious food (especially the picnics), great restaurants and very nice accommodation. Our guides Jason and Irene, were superstars! They made everyone feel comfortable and made sure we were all having a great time. Lastly, our group was just so cool! Everyone was very friendly and cheerful! I will definitely be booking another tour soon and recommending Fresco Tours to my friends!”

AMAZING FRESCO TOURS

Camino de Santiago Tour

“Excellent Fresco Tour! From the time we started thinking of Fresco Tours, with Alissa's efficiency and detailed answers to all our questions- we were already impressed! But more so when we started the Walk. Jeff and Jaume were very professional and attentive to all our needs. They are excellent pair. Hotel and food selection (exceptional) ”

Every step was meaningful

Camino de Santiago Tour

“We did the 200 km's and had the time of our lives. Flew into Madrid. Took train to gorgeous Leon,Spain and enjoyed the restaurants and scenery there in a beautiful hotel with a balcony that made all the traveling seem just fine. Trained to PONTFERRA to start our Camino with the other self guided peregrines. Every day held magic. Every step was meaningful. Every church was for the soul and very evening Mass -perfect.”

truly an emotional moment

Camino de Santiago Tour

“It is difficult to fully describe how wonderful our experience on the Camino was thanks in large part to Fresco and our outstanding guides Jeffery and Jaume. The Camino is a spiritual, cultural, gastronomic, historic and physical experience, and a vast departure from a normal European vacation. The arrival in Santiago is truly an emotional moment, realizing the millions who have gone before on this same route. Bravo Fresco, and thank you Jeffery and Jaume for making this an experience of a lifetime.”

The Best vacation we've ever taken

Camino de Santiago Tour

I Would Do Again with Fresco

Camino de Santiago Tour



“My Camino pilgrimage with Fresco Tours has to be one of the best decisions I've made! From the pre planning with Alissa, the itinerary, our guides, Jeffrey and Jaume; our driver, Daniel; and the company-- they all made this trip seamless, worry free, enjoyable and memorable. The pre walk meetings were informative and helpful; the historical context provided by the intrepid and passionate Jeffrey made for a more meaningful trek, personal reasons aside. It was a cultural, historical exploration of sorts; a meditative and personal journey for me that I would do again with Fresco. My deepest thanks to all, keep it up. I hope to do the Portuguese Camino in the near future!”

All the Hotels and Meals were Great

What matters is the Journey

Camino de Santiago Tour

“The Camino, the Way, the Journey, what truly matters is not getting to Santiago but the journey there. The experience is a personal one, time to reflect, time to soul search, time to find your own way. Fresco tours took care of all the details and enabled me to enjoy my journey. Our guys Jason and Alis were fabulous. It was also great to share some time with Alex and Sandra. I would highly recommend this group to anyone entertaining the thought of doing the Camino”

This Tour Company Really Knows How to Put Together a Wonderful Package

Camino de Santiago Tour

“We had a great trip! This tour company really knows how to put together a wonderful package of great food, great hotels, and great care of their guests. One of our group had a medical emergency, ambulance and hospital stay (not related to the walk) and they took family members back and forth to the hospital, translated, and were a great comfort ! All the time flawlessly seeing that our group was uninterrupted in our trek to Santiago.”

Our Second Camino with Fresco

“Our second Camino with Fresco was Basque tour. Actually, it was physically more challenging than Kinder Camino, but enjoyed different characters of the landscape. As always, we had fabulous food, beer and wine, and of course Fresco's signature picnic lunches!! Thanks to Carol and Hector, and the fellow peregrinos!!!”

A Wonderful and Meaningful Experience

Camino de Santiago Tour

“What a wonderful and meaningful experience we had on Fresco Tours' Kinder Camino. Communications with Fresco Tours was outstanding. Our questions about the tour, our requests for lodging and transportation, and other miscellaneous inquiries were always effectively and efficiently responded to by Alissa. Required forms and pre-tour recommendations were clear and timely. Nor can we say enough about the expertise and personal engagement of both Roberto and Irene, our guides. They were like family and created an atmosphere of camaraderie, confidence, and concern for the well-being of all the members. Their efforts to provide an optimal experience was outstanding. Their personalities were delightful, and their knowledge of Spain and the Camino matched that of the finest teachers. Overall, the journey was truly enhanced with a mixture of spiritual highpoints, trail fellowship, the culinary delights of Galicia, outstanding lodging, and a real sense of personal accomplishment. ”

Exceeded My High Expectations

Camino de Santiago Tour

“As a single woman, I journeyed to Leon Spain alone, with some fear about what I was getting myself into. Once I met up with my Fresco Tour group I never felt alone or afraid. Our guides were kind, thoughtful interesting and good looking, they were the best! I am an attorney and like efficiency and organization. My Kinder Camino/French Way tour exceeded my high expectations. The fellowship that evolves from walking the Camino with Fresco creates lifelong friendships. I am looking forward to returning next year to walk the Portugal Way with Fresco Tours. ”

My Best Travel Experience

Camino de Santiago Tour

“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.”

Everything was So Delicious

Camino de Santiago Tour

“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.”

Cannot Recommend Them Enough

Camino de Santiago Tour

“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.”
