Our day with the two Abduls was just fantastic. Driver Abdul was a steady and safe driver and Guide Abdul was just lovely. He was attentive to everyone’s needs and made us feel all very looked after. He was knowledgeable and clear and patient when telling us all about his homeland with good humour to boot. An unforgettable day. I would highly recommend it this trip.

It was an amazing experience from the camel rides to the site viewings, the walk through the ilmil village, meeting great people along the way and the traditional food. Our tour guide (Ismail) was very friendly and very informative, explaining the treasures of his birth place.

Nice day in the mountains. Nice walk and meal at the end was tasty and on spot with nice views. Tour guide also friendly.
