Activity Level 3: You’re an on-the-go traveler. You don’t want to miss a thing, so walking and standing for longer periods of time (1-2 hours) isn’t a big deal. You can navigate hills and uneven ground, climb into various modes of transportation (tuk-tuk, cable car, zodiac, etc.), and could possibly anticipate changes in elevation. You can expect some longer days balanced with free time to recharge or set out on your own adventure.
Delve into engaging, immersive experiences. Settle into culturally reflective accommodations. Savor authentic, local cuisine. Absorb a destination’s true culture with more built-in free time. On a small group tour of 14-24 travelers, you won’t be part of the crowd – you’ll be an integral part of a cultural expedition.
