Had an excellent tour guide. Kholoud was very knowledgeable and friendly. She always made sure to ask me if I had any questions and an answered all the questions I did have. She was very professional and an amazing guide. Also Mustafa was an amazing driver. Both made my tour great.

The excursion is beyond praise. Second excursion with this company and both are excellent. The guide is super. The restaurant in which we stopped for a fish dinner is beyond praise. In a word, choose this excursion and this company.
