Benefits of Booking a Self-Drive Tour Package

  • Choose your paceTours are great, but sometimes it's just nice to wake-up when you want and be free to make your own decisions. On a self guided experience, you get the benefits of a multi-day group tour with detailed planned itinerary but with more freedom to pick and choose what you want, spend more time somewhere, and never worry about keeping up with the tour group.
  • Pick your travel buddiesFor some, travelling with a group of strangers can be intimidating, but travelling solo can feel just as daunting. A lot of people say when you go on a multi-day group tour, you start off as strangers but by the end, it's like travelling with good friends, so don't be put off! If you want to pick your own travel buddies, then a self guided tour is a great way to make that happen.
