I think he can use a small bus for larger groups. I would contact him and make arrangements ahead of time - I am sure he could take care of you.

Cliff's rate is $295/hr with a 4 hour minimum. He does not charge by the person. Assuming that you do four hours each day you are looking at a total of $2400 for the two days. Expensive but worth it!
