What to Expect

Large Coach Group Tour – max 44 passengers; group size averages 32 passengers

Classic style tour: For those who want to see the sights, taste the cuisine and experience the world. The monuments, architecture, art, and natural wonders of the world will captivate you. The cultural experiences – delving into local life and cuisine, nurtures that wandering spirit within you.

And with guided travel, the most is made of every moment. Trip packages are designed to let you experience the magic of travel while we completely cover all the details. Your only job, once the tour starts, is to try to absorb it all.

Activity Level: You’re an on-the-go traveler. You don’t want to miss a thing, so walking and standing for longer periods of time (2-3 hours) isn’t a big deal. A moderately paced two-and-a-half-hour walking tour, covering several miles, hills, and uneven surfaces, is no problem for you. Walking four miles over the course of a day is very doable, as is climbing into and out of various modes of transportation (tuk-tuk, cable car, zodiac, etc.). You can climb three flights of stairs easily and handle altitudes between 6,000 and 9,000 feet. Expect some longer days balanced with free time to recharge or set out on your own adventure. This level is not a fit for travelers who require mobility assistance devices.
