Full description
Get off the beaten track and discover the oasis of Ksar Ghilane. Enjoy scenic views as you travel along the Roman road, and keep an eye out for flocks of sheep and even camels. Visit local villages and savor a freshly made tea at a local's home. After pickup at your hotel, leave the island of Djerba and travel to Ksar Ghilane. Upon arrival, take a swim in the thermal spring nestled amid a grove of date palms. Relax completely in water that's warm enough to be utterly soothing yet still offers respite from the desert heat. Next, enjoy some free time to take a walk on the dunes, go for a camel ride, or explore the dunes on a quad tour before sitting down to a local meal around the hot spring. After lunch, return to the jeep and head to the Berber village of Matmata. Stop in the village of Tamazret, a village flooded in 1969 where only a few families still live. Continue to discover a troglodyte home where your Berber host will welcome you with a warming tea of rosemary, olive oil, and honey that he has prepared himself. After this meeting, make your way to Djerba with a final stop at Toujane, a Berber village of ocher color hidden discreetly between two mountains.

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…

Nach zwei vorangegangenen Tagestouren in Tunesien (Tunis/Karthago und Dougga/Bella Regia über andere Veranstalter), die beide v.a. historisch sehr interessant waren, war diese Tour nach Ksar Ghilane meine dritte innerhalb von 6 Tagen. Die Abholung vom Hotel erfolgte pünktlich in einem nagelneuen Suzuki Ertiga, in dem ich an diesem Tag als einziger Gast Platz nehmen und damit eine exklusive Privattour geniessen durfte. Ali war auf dieser Tour ein sicherer und umsichtiger Fahrer, Belgassem der mit Abstand beste Tourguide meiner drei bisherigen Touren: er sprach nicht nur ein gutes Deutsch, er brachte sein Hintergrundwissen punktgenau ein, erklärte die historischen Hintergründe verständlich im größeren Zusammenhang, beantwortet Fragen und trug damit entscheidend zu meinem Verständis der besichtigten Stätten bei. Besonders gut hat mir gefallen, dass Belgassem nie den Faden verlor oder zu weit abschweifte. Bei einen Guide wie ihm und einem Fahrer wie Ali ist man gut aufgehoben.
