7. After your tour

We are always trying to improve our tours. Your feedback will be most appreciated. You will be given a feedback form during your tour, please complete this. Alternatively, please let us know what you think by writing an email or completing the feedback form supplied via email.


Please note

Most of our tours leave any day you wish because we organise private groups at affordable prices.

We also organise larger groups but do not combine groups of individuals unless requested. (see booking form for further explanation.)

For organisational reasons, we require one week to organise your booking, prior to departure.

We are a small, family operated company. As part of our commitment to responsible tourism, where possible, we try to schedule guides and drivers at the beginning of each month. This means that they have more balanced programs (beneficial for those with families) and also have guaranteed work days for the month - most important in a fickle industry. If you are "thinking" about booking a trip and the beginning of the month is looming, please consider that the best guides are allocated first.
