Tour Rules: You must be a guest of our hostel to participate. Paying guests the night of the tour have priority. We have two 15-passenger vans, for a maximum of 28 guests. Due to National Park regulations, Tuesdays and Saturdays are limited to 22 guests and unfortunately we cannot allow others to follow in their own vehicles. We can not guarantee that everyone will be able to participate in our tours. There is a minimum passenger requirement per van. You may not sign-up for the tours before you check-in to the hostel. Sign-up for each tour is available ONLY one-day in advance once that day’s tour leaves, and ONLY in the hostel lobby. You must be physically here to sign up for the tour. Management reserves the right to cancel any tour in the case of hazardous weather conditions. Our tour guides are volunteer work-exchange guides. If you have a good time, a tip of $5 – $20 is appropriate.
