It is now 12 months since we walked the Camino from León to Santiago de Compostela with Fresco tours. A day doesn’t go by that I don’t think about the experience. A week doesn’t go by without my wife and I chatting about it. Living life at walking pace is something everyone

Hola Charles, Great to hear from you and so happy to hear that the memory of Fresco Tours and the Camino is vivid in your minds! It truly is a remarkable journey that leaves more than a footprint! I've been reliving my past 20 years along the trail via our #FrescoToursVirtualCamino, which we have been sharing via social media. The good things is that there are no blisters, but there also are no gourmet picnics! Hope all is well - stay health and keep safe.

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

My dear KC! Thank you so much for your lovely review of Fresco Tours! In spite of the challenges, you made it to Santiago with a great smile and your sense of humor is admirable. It was a pleasure meeting you and the rest of the group in Pedrouzo...we had some good laughs that night at dinner! Our guides are wonderful and knowledgeable...thank you for recognizing their good work as well! I know that you would like to return for another Camino in the future. I will be in touch! Kind regards and my best wishes to you and your lovely wife Oon. Elba PS: I do sleep a little! :-)

We had a guided tour starting in Leon, skipping ahead to O'Cebreiro, finishing in 9 days at Santiago. Our guides were outstanding. Accommodations were comfortable and the food outstanding. The right balance of making your own Camino with seamless logistics.

Dear tmartin457, I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your Camino adventure with Fresco Tours! We are lucky to have guides in our Fresco Tours family that enjoy sharing their passion for the Camino, along with the history and culture linked to this magical journey. As for the accommodations and food, we try and make you feel "at home," and sampling local dishes is always a treat! Moreover, it was a treat for me to run into the group in Santiago, even if just for a brief moment! :) I hope we can meet again in the future! Best regards, Alissa J
