Value for money

Prices on all tours vary depending on number of sights visited, quality of tour, added extras, and the largest discounts are available if you're travelling in a herd. Discounts are available for 2 or more people joining a tour, or if you're lucky enough to fill a late spot on the day of a tour, though we do recommend you book your tour at least the day before to ensure a place.

Here's a quick guide to prices for the more popular tours. Note, all prices are per person in US dollars and provide a rough guide to what you could expect to pay. More expensive tours may have more to offer and more places to visit.
