David, United Kingdom - September 2016
“We have just returned from a 7 day Walk and Coach Tour on the French Way. Every part of the trip exceeded our expectations - the quality of the hotels, the quality and quantity of the food, the walking experiences and the sight-seeing excursions. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to experience El Camino who doesn't have the walking ability, fitness or the confidence to do the full walking experience. All the hotels were 3 or 4 star. Some rooms were bigger with better facilities than others. All were clean and welcoming. The food in all the restaurants and hotels was excellent (is it possible to have too much?) mainly freshly cooked, local dishes. We had the added benefit of having an outstanding local guide. David, a young, personable and friendly young man with an excellent knowledge of the Camino and all the sights we visited. After our first walk he had clearly assessed the walking ability of us all and in subsequent walks had our coach available to pick up the less able walkers. We walked between 2 and 4 hours each day. There were a couple of arduous uphill parts but mainly through undulating countryside. Each day we enjoyed differing countryside from mountains to forests to vineyards to farm land. A reasonable level of fitness and walking ability is required and a good pair of walking shoes. We were fortunate to have dry weather all week but water-proof gear would be advisable as the weather in the area is notoriously changeable. There was a total of 15 in our group from a number of countries and of varying ages. Our group gelled well together with everyone supporting and encouraging each other with a lot of humour - and not a little wine! All in all, a great experience - made special by our guide and the people we shared it with."

"An extraordinary experience indeed. My wife and I had the pleasure of a 10 day Trek through some of the most unique Portuguese Countryside and upgraded to the 'Superior Collection' (Parador Hotels), well worth it and more. Camino ways were flawless in their organization and attention to detail from our very first contact. We have only good things to say, in fact endless compliments in regards to CaminoWays Staff, Parador Hotels, meals (5 Star for sure), Trek route etc. We Canadians were very pleased. With great appreciation Rob & Michelle." Camino Portugues.

The Paris & Tours Camino or Paris WayChemin de Paris et de Tours in French or Via Turonensis in Latin, has been the Camino de Santiago route followed traditionally by pilgrims coming from the North of France and Europe. Paris, the City of Lights, is the starting point for this route. Tour St Jacques, in Rue de Rivoli, is the starting point pilgrims embarking on their Camino de Santiago journey for many centuries.

Followed by devoted Medieval pilgrims, the Paris & Tours Way is dotted with wonderful historic towns and sanctuaries of great importance, such as the Basilica of Saint Martin in the splendid city of Tours.

Admiring majestic castles in the Loire Valley, walking across the fine vineyards of Bordeaux, exploring charming Medieval villages and, of course, treating yourself to authentic French cuisine (with a glass of Bordeaux wine!) along the way are some of the things that will make this Paris & Tours Way special.
