How it Works
Unless your group requires otherwise, day tours run for at least three hours starting at 9:30 a.m. The whole tour is done on foot and requires the ability to walk on uneven surfaces. Night tours usually meet up at 7:00 p.m. You must pay a non-refundable deposit of around 10% in advance by Paypal or credit card at least two days in advance. Then pay the rest on the day of the tour in cash.
We need at least two people to run a tour and all tours must be booked at least two days in advance. See more on the Prices and Booking page.
