Tips for tour manager / driver Entrance fees to museums/churches/national parks ecc Meals other that the ones indicated in “Services included” Anything not expressly indicated under “Included services” !! The tour manager will indicate the time that we will have for the visits and also he will decide the order of the visits. The order can be changed based on multiple factors like weather, traffic conditions and restrictions, national holidays, ecc but all the visits will be done as indicated in the itinerary, changing just the order keeping in mind that all this is done for your safety or to make more enjoyable your tour. !! This tour is a easy walking tour for persons with a good general fit condition. It requires some small effort like: carrying your own bag on just some steps to get into the hotel (mostly of the hotels have also an elevator), and also some average effort like: walking tours from 2 hours to 4/5 hours (from 1 km to 7 km) depending on the sites visited. To have a better idea: Sofia walking tour: 1,5 hours = 4 km, Skopje Walking Tour: 1,5 hours = 3 km ; Even if there is involved some walking the tour is still accessible for all the people with a good condition without involving trekking or any other high difficulty tours. Still keep in mind that we will have to make some walk during the tour. In case you can't have the walking tour or you like to spend your time in a different way you can explore the attractions by yourself if possible only after agreeing with the tour manager. In this tour you will enjoy the sightseeing, see the cities indicated and have also enough time for yourself. Even if it we see 10 countries the days are organized to start the tour between 08.00 to 09.00 and get to the hotel at 6 – 7 p.m. in order to have also free time.
