    It was amazing experience but they charged us 3 times more than other customors. That was quite unreasonable. We asked everyone with us on ride they payed 700 to 800 dirham per person and they charged from us 1800 dirham per person. One should never book a tour from this website because they looted us. 3 people could have travelled in my ticket
