Should I book in advance?
Availability is limited, so it is recommended to book in advance and secure your preferred date.
Are your tours guided, or are we left on our own to explore the sites?
Yes, our tours are guided, which means a guide will be with you to explain everything and take you inside the monuments. We do not leave people on their own to explore the sites and monuments, because we offer tours. Unfortunately there are many companies offering “tours” though they basically just transport you to the places and give you very little and basic information. In our understanding this is not a tour, so please be aware.
Can I change or add something to your proposed tours?
We have carefully prepared some tour options for you, though we are flexible and are always ready to adapt or tailor a tour to your preferences. Just Contact us!
What vehicles do you use for the tours?
