MORE IMPORTANT INFORMATION – PLEASE NOTE – Even though private tours are available, the tour presented above is not private. This tour is offered on a shared basis so you will be traveling with others. It is possible that there will be different passengers traveling with you on some tour days. This is so the tour can be organized in such a way so that all passengers scheduled for that tour day can travel together. There will be the main tour route and some other shorter routes which overlap the main route. Again, there will not always be the same people touring days because they will be joining the main tour and in some of the cities visited.
