Classic Hiking & Walking Itineraries

Hiking and walking tours are a great way to experience a country on a more personal and insightful level. By exploring the destination mostly on foot, you can get a more in depth understanding of its culture, nature, and history. In order to get a well-rounded hiking and walking itinerary, it is best to break it down into certain key aspects. 

See All Hiking and Walking Tours

Daily Hiking and Walking Itinerary

This is a generalized itinerary based off what most tours offer. The daily itinerary includes how each tour spends its time. The next aspect is where the most popular hiking and walking tours are offered. It also notes how each location differentiates its itineraries from others. And the last aspect includes the duration spent on each tour. 


Mornings comprise of getting ready, eating breakfast, and getting familiarized with the daily activity ahead. Your tour guide will most likely go over attire, weather, mileage, equipment and estimated completion time. This is also when you can ask additional questions about the activity before heading out.


Most hikes and walks begin between the late morning or early afternoon. Depending on the travel destination, the hike or walk either highlights the location’s natural scenery or cultural significance. It should be noted, however, that most tours try their best to include both.


The evenings are usually set aside for leisure time. Some tours provide dinner. If local cafes or restaurants are accessible, then you can also eat there. If you are camping, however, then dinner will most likely be made at the camp. The rest of the time can be spent exploring, reflecting, and resting.

Our Rick Steve's "Best of Italy Tour," starting in Varenna, October 18, through Rome, November 3, 2015. January 2017


Best of Italy in 17 Days Tour

We flew into Milan and toured the town on our own a few days. Then we took the train to Varenna on Lake Como to formally start our Rick Steves tour with our guide, Lisa Anderson. She was excellent; very organized, helpful to a fault, and took us to a lot of out-of-way places not on the itinerary. What I liked most was the mixture of planned activities and time our own own; a nice balance which I believe gave us a good feel for the people, culture, and historical places we toured throughout Italy. You can read any itinerary for this trip and learn about what you're going to see, but getting to know your traveling companions (there were 28 of us) well, share food (and a cold- achoo!) made it all the better. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who would really like to get a taste of Italy from Rome north. I had no interest in visiting Italy before, but would go back in a heartbeat. I especially enjoyed our time high up in a ski village in the Dolomite Mountains. Seeing the "big three" of Venice, Florence, and Rome was great, but I also enjoyed seeing Pisa and Assisi, and spending time in places I had never heard of before - Cinque Terre , Siena, and Orvieto. While I know you can't pick your tour hosts, I would give the highest marks to our guide Lisa, her assistant, Alex, and our bus driver extraordinaire, Adrian. They helped put an excellent adventure over the top. Kudos to you Rick Steve's! We'll book another one of your tours in the next few years. Read more

Driving with Bonita December 2016


India & Nepal

I was on the November 2016 tour with Susan and agree with everything she has shared. We had great weather to see the incredible sites and amazing guides who not only took us through the scenery but saw to every possible detail. Hotels were great. Food was great. But the chief tour guide, Bonita Backer, was the key to this amazing trip in the depth of her knowledge and her compassion and love for the people of India and Nepal. She got us through bad air, the rupee crisis, visa issues and more. I did my share of shopping but the souvenir I treasure most is the chance to know what kind, generous and caring people live in these two countries. Namaste. Read more

Spent two and a half days with Michael!! November 2016


Medieval Umbria: Walking From Assisi To Spoleto

We spent two and a half days with Michael in Perugia, Assisi, Spello and Orvieto. When we were in the places where all the tourists visit, His personal and private conversations gave them added dimension unavailable on mass tours.

Also It was nice to have His local view point on places to eat, shop and even a personal recommendation on Perusia's best ice cream. He starts with the big picture historic and finishes with small details That give real life to the stories. Michele even gave us a great recommendation to visit Bagnoregio on our own after we parted ways in Orvieto. In Siena, Barbara had a similar gift for illuminating history with personal stories and experiences. It was as if you have a good friend who lives in the city, showing you the most fun and interesting places.
