14. Wet weather
If it rains, you will sometimes get wet! If it is raining in the morning, have another cup of coffee and start your journey when the rain lightens. On all our tour days there is plenty of time to linger and usually there is the option to take a train or boat to your next hotel.
If you don't speak English very well, don't worry! Our hosts are on hand to help with communication and in most of our hotels, there is likely to be a member of staff that speaks your language.
All our tours are designed to be enjoyed by anyone who is reasonably fit. Most are leisurely journeys with plenty of time for relaxation and sightseeing and some include days when you don't need to be active at all. The more demanding tours where we suggest some regular cycling or walking as a prerequisite are listed . If you haven't cycled or done much distance walking for a while, it is better to get in shape before rather than during the tour . If you are in doubt about your physical ability, let us know so that we can advise you on your tour selection.
