All the accommodations were wonderful, especially in Finisterra. The bags were delivered as promised each day. The preparation and instructions were very helpful and I appreciated being able to ask all the questions before hand and receiving prompt replys. I would recommend Camino Ways to anyone thinking about making this pilgrimage on the Camino. Having Camino Ways as our support made the “walk” enjoyable and worry free.

The organisation of the trip and quality of the accommodation surpassed our expectations. All 3 star hotels were very comfortable and the staff in each one brought a personal dimension to our stay which added to the whole experience. I would certainly recommend Camino Ways and found the team helpful and responsive at all stages of our planning. Thank you and we will travel with you again!

This section of the Paris & Tours Camino de Santiago starts at the Sainte-Croix Cathedral in medieval Orléans and finishes in gorgeous Tours. Pilgrims will follow the Loire, the longest river in France, and cross beautiful vineyards, fields and woodland on their way. On the Paris & Tours Camino to Santiago, you will be stopping in many amazing historic cities, such as Blois and Amboise (make sure you visit the impressive chateau!). You will also cross the Touraine region, famous for its white wine, a nice treat after a day’s walking. This section of the Camino from Paris finishes in the city of Tours, with its stunning old town, where you should visit the St Martin Basilica and the city’s cathedral. Although sometime physically demanding, this section of the Paris & Tours Way only requires a reasonable level of fitness.
