Chekib was really nice and the trip around the old city was quite insightful. We really enjoyed going through the old city and its narrow streets. We have learn past to modern history, culture and traditions of Tunisia. I highly recommend the tour for anyone visiting Tunis and would like to know more about the Medina

Fahmi was a wonderful guide. We had some troubles with our rented car and he even helped us with that and finding a parking spot. He made sure to adopt the tour to our needs and showed us some real cultural insights and some hidden gems in the city. He truly went above and beyond

Hassan was an amazing guide. On another tour, we did a small part of the medina but Hassan showed us much much more. He was very eager to please us and to attend to our interests and needs. We highly recommend. Very happy with our experience. Thank you Hassan.
