  1. Due to the nature of the activities of this tour, it is not recommended for children under the age of 14.  Please consult with us if you have any questions or concerns.  
  2. This tour is physically active!  While not necessarily physically challenging, visiting Tuscany means a lot of walking is involved.  Hilltop towns means that there will be a lot of walking uphill (sometimes steep) and ...downhill, in addition to walking over cobbles or uneven pavement. We also will be walking in the woods, vineyards, or fields for a few adventures.  Therefore, we recommend bringing an excellent pair of walking shoes or hiking boots and that you must be in good physical condition to participate on this trip.
