With our guide Samir we hit the bull's eye. He brought us all the sights in a convincing and entertaining way. We were in good hands with him and would book a tour with him again at any time. The tour is recommended for everyone who would like to experience real life in Tunisia, outside of the tourist hotspots.

Our guide was really great! The tour is very well organized and occupies the day perfectly! The value for money is at the top! I highly recommend !
