I am contemplating jumping on the October 13 tour. I was supposed to do this tour last October, but that didn’t work out so I really would like to do it this October. I am wondering how strenuous the tour is in terms of stairs and hills? I do fine walking long distances, but I have bursitis in my right hip which is aggravated by stairs. I have read other forum members trip reports and understand it is a quick paced tour with one night stays in hotels. I don’t love the idea, but it isn’t a dealbreaker. I am more concerned if I will be able to keep up or may have to opt out of some activities. I have done the Best of Paris tour so some activities on the Paris portion are repeats that I can skip (like the Louvre) and visit some other areas that I am interested in.
If anyone has done this tour this year I would like to know what hotels they used in Paris. I will go early and stay after so I would like to know the area where the tour would be staying.
