The tour was excellent and the guide was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the sites we visited. We were not rushed and the length of the tour was perfect. The bus was air conditioned and comfortable. The Mosque is unbelievable and a real ‘must see’ and the Presidential palace is very opulent and definitely worth seeing. A great trip and I would highly recommend the tour and the tour company “Oceanair Travel”.

We were picked up on time from the ship at 9:30 a.m. and continued with a minibus. Under guide the tour has changed so that there was not much going on anywhere. Everything went smoothly and was beautiful. We also had enough time for ourselves. Our guide gave us a lot of interesting information. I can only recommend this tour! The price-performance ratio is right!
