What people are saying about Tunis

Amazing sites and good guide

The sites were amazing and the guide knowledgeable. The vehicle was not in a good state it had some noise and the windows too dirty to take photos. At the first stop the windows were cleaned on request, but the impression of a unprofessional company who provided the vehicle was already made.

Exceptional experience. Private car with driver and guide. A luxury. Very well organized, the guide prepared and attentive at all times to our needs. You feel as if a friend took you in his car to visit his city, but with the preparation of a professional guide.

It was really great! We met a lot of Tunisia in just 3 days. Our guide, was the best we had ever had before, spoke perfect Spanish, and was also very cultured, he knew everything. Yazid, hopefully we'll see you again, it was a pleasure to meet you.

We had a wonderful adventure. Be aware that your guide may encourage you to buy items from her preferred vendors, who *may* be charging higher prices for a kickback. Nonetheless, we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Houda was a very knowledgeable and caring guide. Enjoyed learning about Tunisia and the people. Our driver was very efficient and professional.
