Our full board tour provides free meals of famous-traditional-best restaurants in all cities during our journey. When we are on a long-distance to reach another city, you can help yourself with local fruits and vegetables, juices, tea or coffee or in some cases with midday meals or snacks, which we will buy on the way from local places in each city. We are also going to visit special cafes for resting after a long walk or for enjoying the environment of traditional or modern cafes in some cities.
