The only amount of major walking was when we stopped in one of the towns, it is completely up to you how much you walk. I do not recall any stairs at all. Good luck!

It’s an afternoon tour, we left around 1:30pm and came back close to 7:30pm. The tour takes you to 2 wineries for the wine tastings, and you visit 2 small towns for about 1/2 hour each where you can eat something.
