We have everything taken care of including transportation, accommodation, breakfasts and one BBQ dinner so kick back while we take the reins and get you off the beaten path. We provide the option to customize your experience with activities like whale watching and surf lessons. Going on a trip is a chance to connect with people from all over the world, and we think that’s pretty special, so we keep our group sizes to a max of 12 guests. The tone is always upbeat and personable, making for a great atmosphere for both groups and lone rangers!
