TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Italy:
The weather in Italy over summer heats up in May with temperatures in the low to mid 20's with the peak of summer in July/August where temps can reach in the high 20's. Daylight hours are long and sunny and there is wonderful energy and life in the streets this time of the year!
 
Greek Islands:
The best time to visit the Greek Islands begins in May, when the mean temperature is 21 °C degrees and rainfall is minimal and continues on through to October with average temperatures ranging from 21-29 °C. Days are sunny and clear!
 
Croatia:
May in Croatia is when temperatures really begin to climb and the summer season truly begins. The town and ports are filling up with tourists, restaurants and bars are alive, museums open and extend their hours and the weather triumphs it all by warming up considerably. Average temperatures reach a very pleasant high of around 21°C and reach a low of a very manageable 11°C.
 
The weather in June is one of the warmest you’ll experience. Daily average temperatures in June are about 22°C, highs reaching up to 27°C, the hours of sunshine remain pretty constant, with an average of about 15 hours per day.
September is still very warm, with the average daily temperature ranging from 16-19°C, the highest still a lovely 24°C and the lowest temperature is only around 13°C.

It is also important to note, some areas of employment such a journalism, government authorities and charity organisations may have additional restrictions in applying for Visas. This may in turn affect the type of application required.
