I had a brilliant experience walking and wine tasting in Tuscany, led by our fantastic guide, Jordan. This trip has a good balance of picturesque walks, wine tasting and city days and offers a great introduction to one of Italy’s most beautiful and historic regions. Our itinerary ran seamlessly and there was never a moment where I felt it was too full-on, as we were given plenty of free time between activities. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat!

We had a wonderful adventure visiting four countries in Africa with our excellent guides Petrus and Ende. They worked tirelessly to ensure we were safe, well fed, comfortable and happy. Our group consisted of 8 of us plus the 2 leaders which made for a very comfortable time on the Bruck as we had lots of space. Our tents were new and very easy and quick to put up and take down. The campsites were all different and it’s hard to choose a favourite as they all had something special about them, they all had swimming pools and free WiFi (very slow and usually only at reception or bar). The showers and washroom facilities were sometimes excellent and sometimes basic but always adequate. The meals were varied with plenty of vegetables and salad and huge portions. This is an amazingly diverse itinerary, so well thought out, and you get to see the a range of different landscapes and incredible wildlife.

While each group is unique, you can expect a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, with everyone excited to embark on this journey of exploration together.

What are the advantages to traveling with a guide?

Our award-winning expert local guides provide valuable expertise and knowledge about each destination, its history, culture, and attractions, offering insights that you might not discover on your own. They can navigate language barriers, handle logistics, and ensure smooth transitions between locations, saving you time and effort. Our guides also offer safety and security, particularly in unfamiliar or remote areas, and can provide assistance in case of emergencies.

Additionally, traveling with a guide allows you to access off-the-beaten-path locations, hidden gems, and authentic cultural experiences that might be difficult to find independently. They enhance your journey by providing context, convenience, and personalized attention throughout your travels.

What level of physical activity should I expect on a cultural tour?

On a cultural tour, you can expect a moderate level of physical activity. While not as demanding as our hiking or cycling adventures, exploring cities and cultural sites often involves walking for extended periods.

It’s always a good idea to review the activity rating provided for each tour to ensure it aligns with your fitness level and preferences.
