If you are planning to join the Young Adult Budget Tour, plan to be fit enough to walk around 5 to 10 kilometres a day – these tours are a little more rigorous than our regular tours. For one of our regular 4 star accommodation tours (which is most of them), we suggest at a minimum that you are able to walk 5 kilometres a day and climb two flights of stairs without undue comfort. Four star accommodation tours are designed with the older person in mind so they are not arduous.
