Great tour and very informative! Karim was very knowledgeable and also funny. Driver was also great at navigating and dropping us off in convenient spots. Learned a lot and would definitely recommend.

Nice tour but overall you don't visit much and all for a short time, the lighthouse that is mentioned is not even visited the site. Overall nice trip but I don't know if but I would do it again.
