Private and Schedule Tours Explained

Often people ask the question, “Why is your price higher”, this is generally down to two factors!  Are entrance fees included when comparing prices and then also the difference between a Private Tour and a Schedule Tour.

All our tours include collection by an English speaking guide, German, Russian, Polish & French are available @ R400 extra, your own exclusive transportation, entrance fees/tasting or activities are also included with the exception of a few options that are shown on the itineraries as (Optional).

Optional is provided to allow flexability on the day, not all guests are intrested in all options in our tours and where an option is offered this normal requires more time and therefore time is lost at some point furture on during the course of the day.
