Tour starts at 7.30am and finishes approx. 5pm. Tour operates daily. Guaranteed tour departure with groups of 2 or more.
Your tour guide will accompany you in your jeep for your amazing tour. Our jeeps comfortably seat 3 people, though there is not a lot of room for 3 people plus our guide. To avoid a situation where one person in the group is in a jeep by themselves because your guide is taking the extra seat, your guide will travel in front of the group on a motorbike, stopping frequently to share information with you. This applies for groups of 3, 6 and 12 people and ensures everyone is able to travel with their friends in the jeeps and have a fantastic tour of our incredible countryside.
If you would prefer your guide to ride with you in the jeep, please let us know and we can arrange an additional jeep for a small increase in the price. Our goal is to allow you to enjoy your tour in comfort and to your preferences.
