I highly recommend this trip. The guide was very knowledgeable. We were picked up on time in the morning with a nice 4x4 Toyota. The places we visited were magnificent. We had time to explore and get acquainted with local culture.

We counted with Nebil, a really expierienced guide who went over every single detail regarding Tunísia history and more. Cheni and the surroundings deserve a visit!

Very good excursion with our guide Nebil and our driver Abdoul, with excellent value for money. A big thank-you.
