Tour Considerations

Our day tours basically all follow the same general pattern; pickup time is 08:30 and we return to your hotel at around 18:30 (6:30 pm). Still, there are variations from tour to tour, such as driving time or how much free time you will have to explore on your own. Some tours are more strenuous than others.  Trips to mountains have special weather considerations. Etc.
