Organised tours


New Member
We were considering an organised tour to walk the Camino de Frances. This would cover the last 100 miles as we are not able to get the time off work to do the complete Camino. Are these organised tours worthwhile?

You will get the same out of a walking tour on the camino as you would from a walking tour in any other pleasant countryside. Whilst you will probably enjoy yourself it will not be the same as walking the same part of the route independently and staying in the refugios with the rest of the pilgrims.

These tours have a place as a walking holiday but you could do exactly the same route with a little help from the people here, save a lot of money and probably get more out of the experience.

Buen Camino
