We had a really nice day and saw some important and wonderful places in the south and on the way to it.
Ridwaan was on time, very hostile and helpful. We also had a lot to talk and laugh about during the ride.
He showed us popular places as well as some places he knew would be amazing.
If we have had more time we would liked to do another tour with Ridwaan.
oS we definitely recommend this tour as well as his service! Thanks again to you :)
