Hi, we booked travel with English speaking person. Our guide came to pick up us from hotel even couple of minutes before agredd time. He was really nice and helpful. Huge adventage was that we were traveling in smaller group and in the car we had interesting conversations and we could share some experiences. It was interesting to see fisher caves, eat traditional dinner and see south part of this beautiful country. Main point of the travel - Little Sahara 'is not a real / big Sahara dessert and here you should be prepared for this.
