“Rock Climbing great experience” Me and 2 of my friends decided to go for a new challenge and take the beginner's course for rock climbing with desert divers. It was amazing. Khaled the instructor is very helpful and nice. Khaled is awesome, we really liked him very much and he was a very good instructor. He ensures safety first always. I recommend for anyone who is looking for a new challenge....
