What is the difference between a Self Drive and Guided Tour?

The main difference between EagleRider Guided and Self Drive Tours is the support structure. Guided Tours have fixed departure dates, ride in large groups (10-15 bikes, 20-25 people) along a set itinerary, led by a Tour Guide, and travel with a luggage/support vehicle. Self-Drive Tours are for smaller/individual groups, and they much more flexible with day-to-day routing, often allowing for a greater sense of freedom, independence, and accomplishment.
