The Pace of a Tour

Which Tour Suits Me Best?

Our tours are suitable for the majority of people, with an average level of fitness and mobility. They often involve full days of sightseeing and agricultural visits, with some walking, sometimes on uneven ground, and climbing steps. Periods of standing can be anticipated, especially on agricultural visits.

When a tour is returning to the same hotel it is possible to take a ‘rest day’ if required, though not surprisingly, we do find that on the whole people do not want to miss out on a day’s activities.

Category B

A tour with moderate physical activity staying at a variety of hotels throughout. Includes longer & shorter days, some walking is anticipated on uneven ground and cobbles with the possibility of climbing steps. Periods of standing are inevitable.

Category C

A busy tour staying in a number of hotels, climate and local conditions will possibly make the tour feel more active. The tour includes longer & shorter days. Climbing steps, walking on uneven ground/pavements is anticipated in addition to periods of standing. For this tour we would suggest you are able to easily walk a minimum of ½ mile in comfort and at a steady pace.
