Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is the group tour available every day?

Yes, we have multiple tour groups every day. The way the group tours work is that we pool our guides/vehicles with several other operators, this way we can keep adding groups to meet demand.

What is the maximum group size for group tours?

We use Toyota Commuter vans configured with 12 passenger seats (in addition to guide and driver up front). You should assume each group is full or near-full, as we finalize the number of tour groups only days before the tour date.
