based on 6 reviews

Our guide (Tarik/Tariq) was an excellent guide. He was very kind and informative. About the trip, I think the swimming and biking part is unnecessary (took so much time) but in total everything was nice. I loved visiting local home and drinking tea at their traditional house. I wish I could also join Tatatouine day trip :/ maybe next time in Djerba…

I don't have much to say, Mourad, the guide/driver, made us discover his region, we did 6 spots during the day, and nibbled/lunch in different places. I have nothing but compliments for this excursion and its organizer. See you soon

Very friendly and local guide as well as the driver gave you an insight into the island that we would never have gotten on our own, highly recommended!

Both the owner of Depart Travel Services and our guide for the day were amazing! We learned so much and had a GREAT time!

Tree well driver at the top with good explanations everywhere
