I would highly recommend this walking tour. our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. As a local living in the Medina he knew the place like the back of his hand and was very patient letting us take many pictures and offered to take pictures of us, picking out picturesque points on our tour. he also took us to a state authorised essential oils production facility and a state licenses carpet store to see/buy authentic kilims. I really liked the chance to see and buy these unique Tunisian artifacts at authentic places which I wouldn't have known without a local guide. we went to spots in the Medina that were off the beaten track which was another highlight of the tour.

It's been an experience extraordinare. Fahmi Faidi and our driver were phenomenal. Greate guidance and a pioneer root to explore El Jem.. Fantastic acknowledgement and the most important for us the fact that we didn't experience any force to buy anything to rest stops. Didn't see that coming. Heartily recommended

Great tour and my favourite part of my four day visit to Tunis from the UK. Chedi was very knowledgable and very clear and has a great passion for carthage and history in general. Would highly recommend :)

The Guide (Anas) was great: Really kind, a lot of informations at the stops, always helpful with hints about what to do/look at/buy!

The tour was very nice. The tourguide is friendly and knows everything about the Medina. I would definitely recommend this tour.
