Our tours are physically demanding. You’ll be walking 2-5 miles a day on uneven ground, hilly trails and challenging stairways, including bus travel on winding roads. You should be in good physical condition before we leave. We don’t recommend the tour for persons needing wheelchairs, walkers or for young children as most sites lack handicapped access. Please consult your physician before registering if you are pregnant or suffer from back or leg-related ailments, car or air sickness, or any chronic illnesses.
