see what some of our clients say about us!
I had never before hired a private tour and was initially worried that the cost would be expensive, especially as we had a Spanish guide exclusively for ourselves and a private car for 7 days. However, it turned out to be the best decision I ever made. Hamid and his team organized a tour that catered to our tastes and needs, and everything was meticulously arranged. With the help of local guides, we were able to enjoy the hotels and authentic cuisine that the region had to offer. Spending a night in the desert camp was one of the most amazing experiences of my life, despite the cold temperature. The stillness of the desert at night and the glittering sand made the sky appear a dark blue, which was simply beautiful. I strongly recommend this trip and extend my gratitude to Hamid for the wonderful experience.Maria M
