Rose – Jun 12 2023:

We went to the desert to celebrate my mom’s 50th birthday. The organization was well on site, we also ate well. However, when we returned (because the return is organized by the activity), we had a new driver (it was his first day). He did not speak French or English well. On the way home, he breaks down in the middle of a main road. First of all, he tells us that he has run out of gas (he was already on the reserve when we left). 30 minutes passes, and no news of what to do. It was then that I called the organizer rabiaa, who was unaware of the incident and who sent the chief. He was very friendly and it showed that he cared about his customers. rabiaa finally came with another colleague and was able to bring us back. In the end, we waited for over an hour on the side of a main road. This kind of incident can happen, but must be resolved more quickly.
