Tour tips

While our private touring vans seat 6, it can become very snug should all participants be adults. Please consider this prior to making your booking to ensure the most comfortable and enjoyable tour possible. For adults, we often suggest no more than 5 passengers, with 4 being the ideal group size. While our vans do have the capacity for 6 people, should all those people be adults we strongly encourage upgrading to our large group version of this private tour which can seat up to 12 passengers comfortably.
