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.
