See all of our Most Popular programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I'm going on the 9 September tour. Should I bring my walking sticks and my binoculars?

Peggy Wells Jun 08, 2015 at 01:57 PM

Is anyone going on the September 2- 16 tour?

Suzanne Sanders May 22, 2015 at 03:46 PM

Comments most welcome: Not been to Scotland before, and wonderful if I am letting myself in for 'weather difficulties' if I wait until the Sept.30th departure? Thanks for input!
Edna Beam May 22, 2015 at 07:58 PM

Just got home last week, and the highlands were cold in May. Even saw a little snow. Our guide did say that in her opinion September was the best month to travel in Scotland. Enjoy.
