5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

During my two weeks' trip around the country this was my best tour. You people are lucky if you get as a guide Reda ELGendy and the driver Hazim. Thank you guys !

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2015

I could have definitely done without this. The guide was great and very knowledgeable. But it was very depressing and I felt constantly being asked for money because it is where the poorest of the poor live.
