Jean Claude –
Magnifique site , la mesure du guide qui le propose. J’ai fait plusieurs voyage avec Hamid et tout a toujours été magnifiquement organisé, ambiance chaleureuse, rencontre de l’habitant, connaissance des plantes et des animaux impressionnante et voyage en accord avec le lieu, la nature et ses habitants. En petit (mes filles et moi) ou en grand groupe, je vous recommande de partir avec Hamid.
