Algeria vacations, Desert and History
From
£2,699
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Roman ruins of Algeria are always a highlight, even more when one is blessed with a very good Guide as we had. Algiers is very beautiful, as far as I know the only Art Nouveau town, beautiful, despite the decay and rainy weather. Tips? Brace yourself for long drives (mainly from the desert onwards) and the nuisance of local security, which is not really intended to our security, as they often forget their own relay... Local benefits? Local people did... (more)maria camilo

The guides for both the Armenian and especially the Georgian sections were very knowledgeable and helpful. All three drivers did a great job, on sometimes, precarious roads, steering clear of wandering... (more)Judy Schneider
