Travelling To Greece / November 4, 2016

Most of our tours require a MODERATE level of fitness. However, in certain destinations (e.g. Silk Road, Central Asia, Outback Australia, tropical destinations) or in certain seasons (e.g. mid-winter, mid-summer) or because of the nature of travel (eg. remote rail), certain tours will require an ABOVE AVERAGE or CHALLENGING level of fitness. If you (or we) have any doubts about your level of fitness, you may be required to have a doctor’s appraisal. This would require your doctor to read the itinerary of your chosen tour, including the fitness level, and provide you (and us) with a written confirmation of your ability to participate.


For the overall benefit of the group, all tour members must possess a moderate level of mobility, including theability to:

  • negotiate airports and railway stations without wheelchair assistance
  • use combined shower/bath facilities (it is impossible to guarantee walk-in shower facilities)
  • undertake walking tour of 1–2 hours duration, including using stairs, walking over cobblestones and other uneven surfaces
  • stand for long periods in museums and other sites
  • embark / disembark coaches, trains and other methods of transportation without assistance
  • handle your own luggage

Above average

In addition to the above, tour members must also be able to:

  • undertake walking tours of 2–3 hours
  • climb staircases of 100 or more steps
