Accepting in advance the long duration of the journey with a stop halfway through the journey, the activity was unique! Many special stops. The strong point: the Italian guide who was very professional and attentive.

Really great experience. Everything was perfect. Fares is the best guide I have ever met. So funny, so informative, so helpful. This is the experience you must not miss.

Fares and Amin were our dream team at the oasis. They know each other and are well connected. A great experience! Any time!
