Health and fitness: Our tours involve activities which are designed to be enjoyed by anyone who has a reasonable level of fitness. Obviously the fitter you are the more pleasant and fun the tour will be. Whilst our walking is generally conducted at a relaxed pace and is not over strenuous there are some areas that are steep and require the climbing of stairs and hills. We do recommend that you have a minimum level of fitness before commencing the tour - start walking now so that you are better prepared, fit and ready to enjoy yourself. If in doubt, we suggest that you seek medical advice before booking a tour.
