With us, small groups are guaranteed. Our tours travel with a maximum of 16 passengers. By travelling in small groups there is always a friendly atmosphere, which provides a more authentic tour experience.

During the tour:


Tour days normally begin by around 8.30am. Whilst in the minibus your Driver-Guide will provide fun and interesting commentary about the places you are seeing as you travel along the scenic country roads. At each location your Driver-Guide will explain the relevant history, details of the places of interest and attractions, suggest places to eat and answer any questions you may have. Tour days normally conclude by 18.00.

If you are travelling on one of our overnight tours, then you will be picked-up from and dropped off to your accommodation each day.

A Driver-Guide is an all-in-one tour guide, driver and comrade on the road! During a tour the Driver-Guide will drive the minibus, but also provide fun and interesting commentary about all of the things you see and places that you visit. During the tour if you have any problems or questions, your Driver-Guide will be there to help. Our Driver-Guides are passionate, hard-working & there to ensure you have an authentic, memorable tour!

Yes of course! All of the destinations described in the tour itineraries are places that you’ll visit and explore. The amount of time at each stop will vary depending on the specifics.

Our tours travel in comfortable, executive 16-seater modern Mercedes minibuses, which are fully air-conditioned, have leather seats, tinted passenger windows and device charging facilities. Our minibuses are very fuel-efficient and they are regularly maintained & serviced.

Entrance fees to attractions are not included in the cost of the tour, unless specified. We want to give you the choice of how you use your time in each location. During the tour your Driver-Guide will tell you about the attractions and the relevant admission fees.
