Full description
Following a pickup from your accommodation, start the day tour by leaving the island of Djerba through the historic Roman road. The first stop will be at the top of the Ain El Anba mountain that overlooks the plane of the Jeffara to enjoy the panoramic view. Next, travel across the stony tracks towards Ksar Ghilane, an oasis at the edge of the Sahara Desert. It is also a well known for its hot springs and ruins of a Roman fort. Here you’ll enjoy a 1-hour camel ride in the dunes then take time to relax and have a dip in the hot water springs. Afterwards, enjoy lunch in a restaurant opposite the dunes before departing for Guermassa, a completely deserted Berber village located at the top of a mountain. Walk with your guide who will share their local knowledge. Visit attractions including the hollow houses in the walls of the mountain, the village mosque, and the granaries. Then you’ll head to a berber Ksar, one of the best-preserved ksour (North African term for Berber castle) in Tataouine and the memorable location of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. End the day with a comfortable drop-off back at your accommodation.

Beautiful and very hot day. The guide was great as well as his driver. We did this with our 4 kids. You really need to have lunch before leaving. We had 2 discomforts because of the heat. 42 degrees in the shade, 50 in the sun and 30 in Djerba. They can pick you up at any hotel. We were at the velios and no worries. I highly recommend

Great trip and covered a lot of sights. Impressive guide with a lot of knowledge. 4/5 only because the car was old and not the most comfortable journey and quite an expensive tour.

Pick up was on time. Unfortunately, the driver wanted to drive to several shops because he absolutely wanted to buy bread for himself at home during our trip. That took about 1 hour. The guide gave a lot of information, but unfortunately also complained a lot about how bad he was. The oasis is really great, even swimming in it. The granaries are very nice, but exhausting because they are on a mountain. Here, too, the guide was able to impart a lot of well-founded knowledge. However, if you want to visit "Ksar Haddada", i.e. the Star Wars film locations, you should rather leave your fingers off here, because you pay for them, but you are not shown them. If you can do without it, you can confidently make the trip.
