Moha of Sahara Holiday Tours was very patient with helping us plan our itinerary. He always messaged us on whatsapp to make sure everything is okay. Our driver Yassin and tour guide Yaakuob were the best!!! They were very friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and considerate with all our requests. They were always on time. They always went above and beyond to make sure we have the best trip ever! The car was clean and spacious. We spent a lot of time in the car travelling from one city to another and they both made the long car rides fun. We would talk and laugh a lot.
