What is the Difference Between a Guided Tour and a Self-Drive or Tag-Along Tour?

A guided tour is one where a tour guide also acts as your driver for your tour. He knows the ins and outs of Fraser Island’s tracks and is able to expertly handle whatever Fraser Island throws at him. A self-drive or tag-along tour (sometimes written as tag-a-long) is where you, and other guests on tour, are responsible for getting your vehicle around Fraser Island. This usually involves a convoy of vehicles (anywhere from two to a maximum of four vehicles) with the front vehicle driven by a tour guide. Most guests will have a turn at the wheel however guests will need a driving license to be able to.
