Magnificent experience, breathtaking landscapes. Embellished by the company of our guide Hamou Amdyaze a really nice person, available and attentive and at the service of his customers If it were to be done again I would sign immediately without any hesitation especially with the guide Mr Hamou Amdyaze and his very comfortable 4 × 4 vehicle and his natural smile and his knowledge of the history and culture of the different places visited. As is the case for the Auberge restaurant La Terasse des Délices: beautiful, clean and well maintained place. the owner is very friendly welcoming to listen as well as his employees and staff. Succulent and delicious cuisine and more traditional at attractive prices. Unfortunately I have not had the chance to sleep on site this time, but already planned to come back . Conclusion: Re-serve without hesitation and eyes closed.
