    Amazing tour in a small group led by professional drivers. Even though the tour doesn’t imply you’ll have a guided tour, the guys were very friendly and were willing to answer any questions we had while walking around and elaborate on them further. The other advantage is that they can adjust the route and change the order of sightseeing in order to escape crowds from touristy buses. Thanks a lot for the wonderful experience!

We had a very nice and exciting jeep adventure with Alexander. We completely recommend this experience. The landscape in the desert is amazing and bread taking. Just go for it you won't regret it.

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.
