Algeria: Guide needed with transit visa?

edited March 2010 in - North Africa

i'm about to cross into Algeria from Niger on a transit visa. When i got my transit visa in Ouagadougou i've been told that with that kind of visa i don't need a guide to travel from In Guezzam to Algiers on public transport.

Then, now that i'm in Agadez i'm being told (by foreigners.... but all of them on tourist visas) that i do need a guide. Who should i trust?

I just don't want to be refused entry into Algeria once in In Guezzam.

Any help would be greatly welcomed.
