I enjoyed so much. Once again on the go tours was so good. Thanks again.”

It all went very well, the tours were excellent - especially the town/souks one, a brilliant guide called Yassir. However, the local company phoned me at 11.45 pm the day before to remind me of the pickup time. I never slept properly again after the call and therefore did not feel particularly good that day. The other tour, Bedouin camp, was also brilliant. Tour guide very good too, although needed a bit more precise instruction about where he would be at the end and how to find him amongst all the guides and cars. I really enjoyed both tours.”
