Guided Cultural Walking Tours by Kudu Travel

Exploring Antigonea in Albania

Cultural Walking tours worldwide are at the core of Kudu Travel's programme, with a range of guided holidays for small groups, incorporating both daily exercise (to help burn off the excellent food and wine enjoyed at restaurant meals!) and significant cultural experiences (from opera to art galleries).

Walking is the most natural way to travel, undoubtedly enhancing an understanding of the country visited, and the trick is to strike the right balance - sufficient exercise to feel pleasantly stretched and relaxed, while reserving the energy to explore castles, museums, markets and galleries.

Choose from a range of activity levels - moderately demanding in Ethiopia (Simien Mountains)

Choose from a range of activity levels - moderately demanding in Ethiopia (Simien Mountains) or the Faroe Islands; standard level in countries as diverse as Albania , Panama, India, Morocco, USA and Uzbekistan; or relaxed level in the Caribbean (Bequia & Grenada), or on walks with opera and music in Italy, Norway, Switzerland and Finland.

Most importantly, we intend the walking to add a purely pleasurable dimension to your holiday, so that you return home culturally stimulated and with that extra buzz from being a little fitter!
