The red canyon could be visited on your own, however the guide's explanations are very interesting and enriching even if they were in English. He was able to give us the information by speaking softly and simply by adding the French and German vocabulary that he knew. With patience he answered our questions trying to satisfy us as much as possible. He was very careful both in walking through the canyon and in driving the jeep through the rocky desert. The various stops allowed us to discover magnificent points of view with each time explanations on the geology, the fauna, the flora and the situation in relation to the borders of the various neighboring countries.
Really informative, enriching trip to a geologically and historically interesting mining region. Wonderfully varying desert mountains, thoroughly knowledgeable guide with excellent English. Would do it again anytime, Alex is such fun!
We had a fantastic time. We crawled through a 6,000-year-old mine! Our guide was amazing - knowledgeable and fun, and took great care of us especially in the heat.
Nice ride and great guide. Very interesting experience
