It is always good to check out your budget and consider doing some private touring as well as some scheduled touring options. Our advice is to spoil yourself with a private tour and if the budget is restricted, then mix in a scheduled tour. The routes are the same for a schedule tour versus a private tour. The difference is that on a private tour you can stop for longer where you chose to and stop for a long leisurely lunch……which is of course a priority when you are on holiday. A private tour will done in a luxury vehicle and will be just yourself where a scheduled tour with up to 12 other people in a shuttle.
