Full Day Customized Sightseeing Tours

Customize A Full Day Tour (8hrs)

Why choose a private sightseeing tour? Group tours can be a headache for independent travelers – meeting at a central location to start the tour, schedules that are rushed, guides that don’t cater to your interests, forced stops at gift shops, and so on.

Instead, enjoy a relaxing day of sightseeing in a clean, new chauffeured car. Your driver will greet you at your hotel lobby, take you directly to each location and wait on standby as you enjoy each site at your leisurely pace.  When finished, your driver will take you back to your hotel.  We offer sedans (up to 3 pax), minivans (up to 5 pax), and vans (up to 9 pax) for groups of different sizes.
