I booked two trips with Yahoo travel: A half-day tour of Carthage and Sidi Bou Said, and the next day a trip to Dougga. My tour guide, Hussain, and driver Abdullah were both fantastic. Hussain had great historical knowledge which he combined with insights into modern Tunisian life. Abdullah managed all the travel and logistics with ease and grace including coping with early morning rush-hour traffic. I would not have booked the trip to Dougga if Hussain had not suggested it and I am so glad he did. It is well worth the trip and one of the most interesting historic sites I have ever visited. I highly recommend Yahoo travel and the sightseeing dream team of Hussain and Abduallah.

The organization is perfect, departure from your hotel, the guide accompanied by a driver will pick you up to help you discover these two beautiful cities and their stories! Excellent day, excellent guide listening to what we want to discover ****
