Walking tours of Europe? Looking to change up our usual travel style, see smaller places, and get some exercise at the same time.

We live in London and have travelled across to various European cities several times now. Having been lucky enough to see many of the major galleries and sights in the big cities, we'd like to try a different type of travel and get some exercise to boot.
Eventually we hope to take a bike tour, but figured we'd start with walking on a weekend trip to see if this works for us. We are in our 30s and have only ever travelled independently before, so tours would be new to us too but being new in London, it might be a nice way to meet people.
Our usual travel sees us wandering cities walking up to 15-20 km per day.
Any recommendations for budget walking tours for beginners, 2-3 days? Tours that take in small villages, wine regions, abbeys (eg in Belgium) would be great. We also really like contemporary art, music, and literary stuff. We'd like to go to Portugal, Belgium, Spain, France.
