Guide Ahcicene (who is actually the owner) and driver Muhammed were excellent. Long day tour, via car and on foot, into museums, Botanical Garden, the Casbah on foot, elsewhere. Ahcicene is extremely knowledgeable about all things Algerian. Excellent English.

My guide was Omar. Great guy. Phone or WhatsApp or Viber ‭00213 5 42840682‬ He’s pretty good at answering pretty quickly. The weekend has just started there though. I really enjoyed Algeria, hope you do too.
