What to Expect
Expect to have a wonderful time! We've designed each trip to enjoy the stunning beauty of the Spanish landscape, while giving you a true sense of the soul and magic of these exciting people and their culture. We love to share this magnificent country and want you to feel a part of it - for us it is more than just a trip, it is our home.
Guides: Our greatest resource! We know Spain, because it is our home. All our guides are experienced professionals that are either Spanish or live in Spain year round – no hired-out college grads! When specified, local art historians will join us to provide further insights of the specific monument / museum that we visit.
Limited Group Sizes: Fresco Tours are in small groups to ensure that you receive the individual attention that you deserve. We want to be able to treat each of our clients with a personal touch and we limit the groups to a maximum of 14 participants.
Accommodations: Fresco Tours selects a combination of 3-4 star hotels, restored country manors and B&B's that offer the best in hospitality, comfort and location. All rooms have their own bathrooms. Tour prices are based on double occupancy.
Meals: Food speaks volumes about a culture and we love to eat! During our walk days, when possible, we prepare gourmet picnics, using the freshest of local ingredients and selecting the tastiest recipes of the region. Dinners are celebrated in restaurants chosen not only for their menu, but also their atmosphere and service. All breakfast, lunches and dinners (minus one lunch and dinner, where we encourage you to sample the local cuisine on your own) are included. We are proud to cater to vegetarians and those with food allergies – milk, egg, wheat, etc… as well!
Support Vehicle: Your walks will be accompanied by a support vehicle that will be there to provide you assistance when the route permits. The possibility of shorter routes and pick-up options will be explained on a daily basis.
