Our tour guide, Wilson, was most accommodating, both with pick up and drop off. It turned out that my wife and I were the only 2 on the tour that day - so we also enjoyed a personalized experience. You should provably check with the tour organizers about the number in the group, or ask if they would entertain a personal tour (and at what price). Good luck and enjoy the tour - it's wonderful.
