had already emailed Sari travel about possiblity of crosing Libya out via Al Gatrun. Got a reply a couple of days ago:
-Your proposed trip is possible and we are ready to prepare invitation
letters, provide you a qualified tour guide and prepare a program for you to
visit Tripoli tourist sites, desert & lakes in the south up to Al Katrun.
As for cost of our services, we are going to provide it to you later when
you determine how many days your trip will last in Libya.
Have you / anyone else had any experience with this group ? (http://www.sarilibyatravel.com/
