As much as we love walking along scenic footpaths, we’re big fans of other forms of  locomotion, too — especially when they let us see the region from a different angle.

 

Check out these fun ways to travel that we take advantage of on any tour we can.

WHAT SHOES DO I NEED?

Although our Cultural Walking Adventures feature daily walks through beautiful destinations, that doesn’t mean that we’re all about making the miles. We’re all about making the most of the miles. A pair of sturdy leather or synthetic walking shoes or walking sandals should serve you just fine on most Classic Journeys trips.
