Extraordinary memory! I recommend ! Great family stay! Camels, quads, buggies, sleeping in the desert, good restaurants, visits to magnificent places without forgetting the famous souk, the children loved it! Special mention to Abdoul our driver. A trusted person with whom we were safe. Very available, he fulfills all your wishes with a smile. His shared joy leaves an indelible mark in our minds. We will come back for more discoveries for sure!
❤️❤️ We didn't imagine it could be enjoyed so much; possibly the best vacation ever. The route has something special that cannot be told, it must be done
