A Recent Review of this tour

Takla was early and waiting for us to start the tour. We were able to adjust the time spent at features to suit ourselves and yet we still managed to see everything we wanted to. His English was easy enough to understand and he had a lot of interesting information and facts to share. The restaurant and food was nice and the location was unbelievable. Thanks Takla
