A Private Tour – Regular Ride is recommended for riders who want to experience Darwin by themselves (with a guide of course).Private Tour Regular Rides are done at leisurely pace around the scheduled tour routes at the usual scheduled time each averaging between 15 to 20km over 3.5 hours. You have a choice of:
Mindil Beach Markets Sunset Tour or
Northern Beaches Sunset Tour.
By booking a private tour you will guarantee that you will be the only person or people on the tour and the guide is exclusively at your service.
It may be worth considering that our scheduled tours (Short Rides) often only have 1 or 2 people and only occasionally do we have multiple bookings. There is a fair chance you won’t need to book a private tour to be the only people on a scheduled tour. Save your money for a Long Ride!
We charge significantly more for Private Tours because we (me) are a small business (one man show) and we have block out that time when we could be taking other clients for a scheduled tour.
