    Great tour. It's a must if you want to know the island. This tour will allow to pass by the main points of Djerba. The tour guide is really really really nice, friendly, with a lot of knowledge, helpul and very funny. Also the driver, Ali, is super nice! I totally recommend this tour for anyone that is interested to understand Djerba and its culture.

    It was a very nice and informative trip, I was picked up from the hotel on time. Everything was explained in detail, the market is great for shopping and lots of great things to see. I was able to take a lot of impressions with me and can only recommend this tour to everyone.

    Avec mon amie, nous avons passé une superbe journée au côté de Hatem et notre conducteur. La note n'est pas du tout celle pour évaluer notre guide car il était instructif, fort sympathique ayant un très bon niveau de français lui permettant d'échanger avec beaucoup d'humour, mais plutôt celle où il n'y a pas grands choses à visiter sur Djerba. Cette expérience est plus pour les curieux car nous avons tout de même trouvé l'expérience intéressante pour nous amener à cette conclusion. Mais entre vous et moi, quelle raison vous amène à Djerba ? Je ne pense pas que cela soit pour ses champs d'oliviers hyper vastes et pour ses vestiges gréco-romaines qui représentent aujourd'hui des ruines. Néanmoins, je vous recommande de sortir de votre hôtel car découvrir l'île vous permettra de comprendre ce que le tourisme représente dans la vie des tunisiens et comprendre l'histoire de leur pays. Je n'ai pas eu suffisamment de temps, mais j'aurais sûr saisi l'opportunité de visiter le désert tunisien.
