Tour Important Information

This is a long day!!

I drive this route a lot and the day can be altered by many things, traffic, excitement at certain spots and lengthy meal breaks.

You'll spend a lot of time in the vehicle but as I say you'll see a lot of the country. I am happy to explain further if you're interested and alter the rout in places to cover other areas.
