More Spain Our Way - 8 Day Tour - Astorga, Galicia, Segovia

Spain Our Way's 8-day tour will be filled with Scenic Ocean Vistas, Historic Cathedrals, Palaces, Castles and Lighthouses, enthusiastically run by a Spanish foodie and his American wife.. Along the way we will stay in 4 & 5 star hotels and an award winning Casa Rural ( a refurbished 700 year old grist mill). We at Spain Our Way feel that where you stay and the food you eat is as important as where you go and what you do. We tour Spain like a group of Spanish friends or family travels, focusing on local cuisine and regional wines. We start out with a stay at the historically important and majestic city of Astorga, and continue north to Galicia and the coastal beauty of The Bay of Biscay and the Ortegal region. From there it meanders south to visit Muxia and Santiago - both famous for the pilgrimage known as The Camino de Santiago and ending in the lovely World Heritage - Listed city of Segovia. Experience the dream that is Astorga, Galicia and Segovia with More Spain Our Way.
