our guide Mongee(may be spelt wrong) made this trip outstanding, a truly lovely helpful gentleman. every place we visited was excellent and the colosseum was the highlight of the attractions we saw. it was far better than I expected. we stayed overnight in the Sahara with Mohammed. no electricity, toilets or running water in a tent but it was truly amazing. wild camels came up behind our tent which was very unexpected and magical. Muhammed kept us entertained playing music and we enjoyed the peace and tranquility the rest of the time. We paid extra for camel rides and quad biking. we always quad bike on holiday but this was by far the best experince we have had doing so. Everything was excellent thank you so much Mangee and Mohammed for such a memorable two days.

The excursion was tiring, a lot of driving, but with magnificent landscapes. Our guide Omar was very nice. We had a lot of fun with him. This unforgettable adventure will be remembered for a long time. Especially quad biking in the white sand.

Amazing trip, we covered all of the major highlights that Tunisia has to offer and our night in the desert was magical! Everyone we met was very attentive and the food we ate throughout the trip was delicious!

Very good tour. Excellent guide as well. It is the recommended option to be able to know the main attractions in Tunisia.

The guide is very kind and friendly. He took us to key and fun places, so highly recommended.
