I'm signed up for the Heart of Portugal tour that starts on 3 June 2019. After receiving a call from the tour folks wanting to make sure that I wouldn't be upset if I had to opt out of some things due to the hills, stairs or long walks, I went through all the reviews for this tour from today back to the first one from this year.
Knowing that assigning an activity level of light, moderate or strenuous to each day and overall for the tour is an inexact science, I read each review seeking comments around those concepts. It made me wish the review format had boxes to check like reviews for shoes, only they'd be something like Based on Tour Description: Less active/strenuous than expected, More active/strenuous than expected, and As active/strenuous as expected.
For this year so far, my interpretation of what the very few people who mentioned anything about this is: Less -- 4, More -- 11, As -- 10.
My favorite comment was this one: "This tour had the least fit people of any of our RS tours I have been on, but then, in the end, that did not stop anyone from seeing anything. It might have in fact forced us to slow down and enjoy the walking even more."
Now to my question. If you have taken this tour, how would you rate its level of activity/strenuousness? More than you expected, Less than you expected or As you expected? Your answers will definitely affect the level of "training" I do in the next few months.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
