My companion and I completed the 5-day excursion, and our expectations were exceeded. Our driver, Youssef, took excellent care of us, conversed with us, and showed us many incredible sights, but left us alone for meals and at night. He was a true former Berber, which was incredible. He was also hilarious, honest, and all-around excellent.
