Full description
In the morning, you will be picked up by your friendly driver in the comfort of your accommodation. After a short meet and greet, you will set-off to discover the wonders of Southern Tunisia.  Start your journey by leaving the island of Djerba, travelling down an old Roman road and taking stunning holiday pictures of Chahbania along the way. Continue to Tataouine, the city that gave its name to the planet "Taooine" in the Star Wars Saga, and enjoy some free time to walk in the market - a great place to refine your haggling skills.  Continue on your tour toward Chenini, the berber village overlooking the mountain and stay for about an hour with your local guide. This guide will be pleased to introduce you to the various components of the village: the oil mill, the mosque, houses carved into the walls of the mountains and the attic and much more. After this introduction you'll get to feast on a delicious meal consisting of local food. From here, continue to Ksar Ouled Soltane, where some scenes from the Star Wars movie "The Phantom Menace" were shot. To round off your fantastic day, head back to Djerba in an air-conditioned vehicle.

bonne visite mais un peu cher

February 28, 2023


Comparer à l’année dernière nous avons eu un chauffeur avec une voiture qui ne donnait pas beaucoup d’explications. Nous sommes partis à 7:20 et rentré à 15:40 après une visite de CHENINI très écourtée par le guide berbère qui a surtout pensé à nous emmener à la boutique, car le site a trois niveau, nous sommes passé vite au deuxième niveau et directement redescendus à la boutique. Et n’a pas hésité à nous demander si on était content de la visite et nous a réclamé un pourboire. Quelle changement d’une année sur l’autre. Nous avions avec nous des amis pour leur faire connaître ce que nous avions visité l’année dernière et avons passé pour des niais vu la visite présentée de Chenini.
