Excellent afternoon in the land rover. This is definitely not for anyone prone to travel sickness or a fear of heights. It really feels like an adventure, especially when the heavens open and the rain pours. Makes for interesting driving. The quarries themselves are increadable...More

Hi. We took the 50/60 tour. We were lucky to have taken the tour with very brief notice. I would recommend making a reservation as the tourist season really gets underway.

They can pick you up from the train station or at a landmark near there. Best to send them an e-mail or make a phone call and ask where. You'll need to make reservations, anyway.
