It was a shopping trip not like in the description. We stopped from place to place just to do shopping. I lost one day I could spent somewhere else. They also but me in a bus with Arabic speaking tourists and guide which was absolutely not acceptable. I was the only one English speaking in that bus. I paid for a service I didn't receive. Anyway the guide and the driver were awesome and they made everything so I can feel comfortable. It was not their fault. The whole organization from the beginning was chaotic.
