This Tour

Activity Level 3

The "Activity Level 3 - Active" category is tailored for travelers who prefer a dynamic and physically engaging experience. If you're comfortable with walking and standing for 2-3 hours without issue, and can handle a 2.5-hour walking tour that includes covering several miles, navigating hills, and uneven terrain, this level suits you. Being able to walk up to four miles in a day, easily climb three flights of stairs, and adapt to altitudes between 6,000 and 9,000 feet are key aspects. This level also requires you to be agile enough to get in and out of different types of transportation, like tuk-tuks and cable cars. While there are longer days filled with activities, there's also ample free time for relaxation or personal exploration. It's important to note that this level isn't suitable for those who need mobility assistance devices.
