WHAT IS A "PRIVATE TOUR"?

A private tour is a tour organized for your party only: you are the only participant in the tour and the guide is to work with your party and no one else. This type of tour offers a few advantages:

  • It is completely adjustable to your personal needs
  • It is organized according to your schedule
  • You do not have to wait for other participants
