What is a Private Charter ?

On a private charter tour, you have the tour to yourself and your own personal driver guide. We design your itinerary based on your interests, whatever they may be! Whether you’re interested in Hiking, Bird watching, Photography, Fishing or just finding a remote location and taking in the scenery, we can personalise your experience.
