We often get requests from passengers to depart in one of the destinations during the tour so they can stay a little longer and enjoy the location.  If you wish to do this please inform your driver of your intention to leave the group so they are not left waiting for you. If you wish to bring along your luggage it is possible to store this on the bus until you depart.

Can I charge my phone or devices on board?

Some of our buses have USB charging ports at each seat which are very handy for charging mobile electronic devices.  At present this is not available on all of our fleet, so if you intend to use your devices regularly during the tour and are concerned about battery life, we recommend you carry a portable battery to top up your device during the day.
