Our itineraries offer travellers the comfort of included city tours and free time to explore the area or join our optional tours. To get the most out of your trip, we may visit multiple sightseeing spots on our city orientation tours – these do tend to involve a decent amount of walking in one venue or another. Given the length of the trip, it is always best to consult your doctor in regards to your health.
