Will I have free time?
You will enjoy ample free time during lunchtime and in the hours between touring in the day and dining at night.
At what time does daily touring start?
Our tours typically start around 08.30 / 09.00 a.m. after a good breakfast!
What is the fitness level required for tours?
Although the content is carefully balanced on a day-to-day basis, overall, average fitness levels are needed for all tours. Travellers of any age with a normal level of health and mobility should not experience difficulty in participating in all aspects of the tours. The daily site visits are not strenuous but some visits will require moderate walking, sometimes including steps. There are no late evenings and the multiple nights at our hotels are a real bonus. Moderate coach travel. Whilst we have a full-time tour director in charge of all tours, all tour participants should be able to individually take part in all activities. The places visited are unsuitable for travellers requiring wheelchairs. Wheelchairs or walking frames cannot be carried on or provided on our coaches.
What is the general mode of transport on the tours?
Depending on the group size and taking into consideration local roads and access, we will travel in a private, luxury 30, 40 or 50-seater coach offering all modern facilities. Generally speaking, we work with the same coach operators year in year out and consequently often work with the same senior drivers.
Is there a tour director on each tour?
Yes! Our long standing tour directors are what will truly make your tour very special, regardless of group size. You will be met on arrival at the airport and they will be with you every step of the way until finally waving you through the departure gates for home or your next stop.
