Fijn dat iemand de historie kan vertellen. Zeker niet onbelangrijk als je aan zo een tour deelneemt. Je leert zo iets meer van het land en de geschiedenis ervan. Mahmoud onze gids kon ons heel veel vertellen en was geduldig, de groep was gelukkig ook niet zo groot. Mahmoud thank you and keep on doing the good work.

Great tour! 100% RECOMMENDED. I have really enjoyed it . The tour was perfect from the beginning to the end. Everything organized very well. Food and juice were amazing. The tour guide even took us through the Maine markets that's really were so beautiful and helped us to negotiate. One of the best tour ever. Higley recommended
