Tour Categories – Touring Options

There are several touring options but most of the tourists prefer independent coach tours. They give you an amazing solution that can enable you to enjoy the land with great pleasure. The coaches are comfortable and you will not feel the hassle when you are traveling to different attractions.
However, the choice of your tour category will determine the cost of your package. Instead of using the seat-back option, you can opt for private or even self-drive (car, minibus, campervan or motorhome rental) services during your tour. The schedules are not fixed and you can make a change depending on how you want your travel to look like.
