Private vs Shared options

Certainty :

With a private tour, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with certainty – your tour is confirmed, and the departure is guaranteed right from the start. Unlike shared tours, which require a minimum number of participants (usually half the seats) before being confirmed, so if you create a new shared tour, it will require other people to join you and meet the minum required before your tour is confirmed. private tours give you the assurance of a confirmed adventure tailored just for you.
If you join an already confirmed group tour, then you have the same certainty of departure as a private tour.

Flexibility :

Flexibility is another key advantage of private tours. When you choose a private tour, you get to customize your experience. Spend more time at your favorite attractions, explore hidden gems, and shape the itinerary to match your unique interests. In contrast, shared tours follow a more structured format, needing alignment with the entire group, which can limit the freedom to explore at your own pace in some occasions.

Accommodations :

While you can choose your accommodation category on a Private tour (Silver, Gold, Diamonad) whenever available, the category is fixed for group tours and will always be Silver options, this is to make sure the tour organization is more efficient and the group won't be staying in separate and distant places which create confusion and wastes precious tour time, It also makes handling emergency cases easier.

8pax vs 16pax Groups :

We have 2 kinds of group tours, small (8 people) and large (16 people), the latter is more economical however requires 8 people to join to be confirmed, while the first only requires 4 to depart.

You can inquire about any of the options to get more in-depth details specific to your needs

Important notice (Valid for private option only):

The tour can be reversed, shortened, extended or altered in any way to suite your specific needs and schedule ! Don't hesitate to contact us and ask for other combinations
