What our travelers say about their Europe walking tours

Provence Walking Tour
By 6-time traveler Lawrence M. on 7/25/2016
Wow! What an amazing experience. The scenery was breathtaking and itinerary was perfect. Walking in the steps of Van Gogh and Cezanne (two of my favorite artists) were highlights of the trip. I can see why so many of the impressionist painters gravitated to the area. The light, colors, and images ar

Exceeded Expectations
By first-time traveler Stephanie M. on 9/20/2018
This tour was exactly what I hoped it would be. The walks varied from easy to difficult just as others have noted. I highly recommend this tour for those who want to avoid big cities and see something of the beautiful countryside of northern Italy.

Travel tips for Walking Tours

What is a Walking Tour?

Our small group Walking Tours offer the opportunity to step off the beaten path. In addition to the inclusions on every Go Ahead Tour—authentic cuisine, handpicked hotels, comfortable transportation, and guided sightseeing—our walking trips also give you the chance to discover your destination on foot.

Walking Tours are ideal for active travelers who enjoy seeing a region from a new perspective. A Tour Director and local guides will introduce you to both the iconic highlights and less-traveled paths of your destination.

Where to go on Walking Tours

Our guided Walking Tours in Europe visit a variety of countries, from Italy to France to Ireland. Which one interests you?

When to travel on a Walking Tour

While deciding when to take one of our Walking Tour vacations, consider the temperature you'll be most comfortable in. You'll be spending a good amount of time outdoors on this kind of trip, so keep that in mind. Our European Walking Tours are offered each spring, with dates available through the fall months. In destinations like Italy and southern France, summers can become quite warm. You may opt to visit during May or October to avoid peak season and the summer sun.

What to expect on Walking Tours

If you're interested in active travel tours, Walking Tours are a good fit. Expect to see a mix of natural landscapes, historic cities, and smaller towns on these trips—you may come across sites you wouldn't see on a different type of tour. You'll be on your feet every day, sometimes for several hours at a time. You can find detailed information about the length and terrain for included walks on our group Walking Tours on each trip's itinerary page.

Packing tips for group Walking Tours

The right pair of shoes is one of the most important things to bring for our guided Walking Tours. Since you'll spend more time out exploring, you'll want comfortable footwear that can handle multiple types of terrain. You can focus on enjoying the scenery and not worrying about your feet.

When prepping for one of our walking trips in Europe, check out what the typical weather is like in your destination before you go. We recommend packing lightweight clothing that you can easily layer in case temperatures vary throughout your trip. Once you've reserved your trip, you'll receive more detailed packing information to help you plan and pack. You can also download our Tour Companion App so you have all the details about your trip right on your phone!
