We recently returned from a self-guided tour on the Camino with a group of women from the US. We had a great experience with Fresco Tours! They made every aspect of our trip easier. The daily maps of the route with restaurant recommendations were especially helpful. If you are planning to walk the Camino, I highly recommend Fresco Tours.

Hola Margaret B, Great to hear that you enjoyed our restaurant recommendations on our maps! We like to eat and realize that food speaks volumes of a culture, so having a list of our favorite places along the Camino always makes things easier to refuel! Please come join us again in the future - perhaps a guided tour next time where we make our gourmet picnic lunches..... Thanks for the note - be well and buen camino! Alex

Walked self guided tour from Ponferrada. It was an epic adventure. Fresco Tours provided outstanding package including daily maps with distance and altitudes, resting stop points, cafes or bars, and great overnight hotels. The staff was very helpful, polite and quick to respond. The hick opened the door to pastoral scenes, forests, rivers and history.

I started from scratch figuring out what I wanted to do el Camino hacia Santiago de Compostela and how. I didn’t know much. Alyssa was our first contact and she was so sweet, patient and diligent. She answered all my questions, handled all my doubts, listened to all my needs/concerns and ideas and helped me to choose which option was best for me and my friends. Once that was done, we passed to Elba. I think my first email was “I want Alyssa back” 😂 . She took it very candidly and guarantee I was going to feel good with her and she did not lie. She was with us all the way from the very moment we left home to the last minute after we finished the Camino and headed to Barcelona. Everything was coordinated very well and we did find some hiccups throughout , but she owned each one and helped us resolve without hesitation. The experience was wonderful. I definitely recommend their service.

Fresco is amazing. The incredible staff treats its clients like family and constantly works to make certain everyone has the best possible time on the trip. My wife and I have walked two of Fresco's unguided caminos and both were superb. Alex and Elba always are ready to jump in and solve problems, like finding lost items or securing medical care for sick or injured pilgrims. On our most recent trip in the summer of 2021, I injured my hand and needed an x-ray. Alex immediately knew the best hospitals along our camino route and guided me to a good resolution. I recommend them without reservation.

Hola Mark! Great to hear from you and so glad that you and your friends took the steps to come to Europe and walk the Camino with Fresco Tours during the uncertain autumn that we had. In the end, everything seemed to work out and you were able to enjoy the trail and the other pilgrims. It was rejuvenating for me personally to get back on the Camino! Here's to future walks - take care of yourself. Abrazos until our caminos cross again, Alex

Wonderful company!! We did the 200 km self guided tour. We had it arranged for last year but with COVID it was cancelled. They honored our reservations for another year, did not change the pricing and were very accommodating. We worked with Elba who was an absolute joy and wonderful help through some challenging times with COVID. Our kick off guide Jeffrey was excellent and we did get to meet the owner, Alex, who was very pleasant and kind as well. I highly recommend this company and will likely book again when I head back to Spain!!

Hola Theresa, THANK YOU - Because of COVID, we've waited a long time to see the smiles and hear the laughs of joy the Camino provides. When I bumped into you along the trail, your reaction when I told you I was from Fresco Tours was the best present for me. I'm so happy to hear that you had wonderful experience on the trail and with us. We look forward to seeing you soon. Hasta pronto! Alex
