excellent guide

I got a spectacular guide, really one of the best guides I've had on any tour. Amro (that's his last name) is a super well-prepared, well-studied guide, he knows how to explain in an extraordinary way, he spoke objectively about super-sensitive topics without taking sides, he opened a space for questions and answers that was most interesting because he is very prepared and it's also funny, I learned a lot.

A beautiful day

This day made it possible to discover the sites proposed but also the landscapes crossed. Quality guides. Smiling and pleasant driver. The little minuses: a little doc in French could be offered because the visit is exclusively in English. And going through the store is not essential... Our driver was driving a little fast!
