Ours was morning and I don't think they are available in the arvo. The end of the tour is the sit down lunch. Also as we went in summer, best to set off before it gets too hot.

Tours are at 10 am and 2 pm. I went on afternoon tour and it worked out beautifully. I think it is just a personal preference as to which time is better.
