Please do not ask our guides to hire a vehicle and drive it for you as this is illegal. It is also illegal for our  guides to drive you in their own private car  unless both they and the vehicle are licenced - please see our FAQs page for further information.


If you wish to hire a vehicle - whether car or minibus - and drive it yourself all of our guides are happy to join you as a step-on guide.


It is also possible for our guides to hire a licenced tour vehicle with driver and join your party as a step-on guide.
