protocol for dealing with algerian guide?
am in the planning stages of trip north through africa including a crossing of the sahara (Niger / Algeria) around April 2010.
have been reading posts about this with interest, and managed to find a guide for the Algerian leg, and was about to send some personal details for the LOI but thought to ask a question here first.
Is payment usually in person, or will they ask for credit card or bank transfer? If in person, is it at the start or on completion of the trip?
The guide company i have found is Agence Tanezrouft Voyages - anyone used them before?
Am v new to this so any info on how this usually works would be much appreciated.
