Reviews for Algeria holidays, Desert and History


review 4 Feb 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

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.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

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...

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local people did benefit mainly when meals were organized at their homes; given the speed of "security" cars, environment did not benefit at all, and it seems that Algeria is not at all concerned: it has huge pollution clouds and plastic bags everywhere...

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Thank you for the feedback. Pollution in general and from plastic bags are a problem in the country and an issue we raise regularly with the tourist board. We will continue to press this point with them.
