What to Expect

Activity Level

Takes into consideration the physical requirements for each of the trips, walking, hiking, climbing in and out of safari vehicles etc.
           Moderate

Travelers should be able to climb 60 stairs consecutively, plus walk at least 3 miles over some steep slopes and loose or uneven surfaces without difficulty. Walks typically last for 3 or more hours at a time. Altitude can range from 5,000 to 7,000 feet.

Pacing

Takes into consideration the length of bus rides, flights, number of destinations in the number of days
           Moderately Easy

Moderately paced, and may include some early morning hotel departures, one or two on-tour flights, and extended motorcoach travel.

PACING

  • This adventure is moderately paced
  • We spend 14 nights cruising aboard a Deluxe Vantage river cruise ship
  • We spend a total of 12 days exploring the historic and cultural sites, mostly on half-day tours that conclude by lunchtime. There are ample options for more active explorations

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS

  • This is a relatively active itinerary featuring active walking tours and biking
  • Much of the walking on tours is over uneven terrain, cobblestone walkways, and flagstone paths. Visits to museums and old houses often require climbing flights of stairs. Canal tours may require embarking and disembarking a canal boat
  • Motorcoaches are used whenever possible to bring you as close to the pedestrian centers as the historic preservation of these older towns and cities allow
  • Because of the active nature of this trip, it is not appropriate for travelers who use walkers or mobility aids. In addition, Vantage river cruise ships are not wheelchair-accessible and there are steps on board

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION

  • Most shore excursions, especially those at ancient and medieval sites and in rural areas, require walking on uneven terrain
  • Shore excursions and transfers utilize air-conditioned shuttles or motorcoaches

CLIMATE

  • Weather is never predictable so be sure to be prepared for just about anything. You'll want to take along a sweater or jacket for cool evenings. It's a good idea to dress in layers, which will allow you to adjust to changes in temperature
  • We suggest a practical raincoat or waterproof shell with a hood, and/or a fold-up umbrella. The shell could also be worn with other layers in lower temperatures
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please use this chart as a general guideline and check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly

Important Notice:The above day-by-day itinerary is preliminary and subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Cruise Director or regional expert. In addition, should there be an extreme change in water levels, Vantage will do everything possible to provide either the included excursion or an alternate excursion at Vantage’s discretion.
