What people are saying about Carthage

My husband and I had an absolutely incredible time on this day-long tour with our guide, Boutheina!! She was the most knowledgeable, fun, and personable tour guide and we learned SO MUCH from her while visiting Kairouan, El Jem, and Carthage (not to mention, she takes the best photos!!). Our driver was also amazing and got us from place to place with no trouble. This is a must-do for anybody who is traveling to Tunisia and wants to understand the country’s rich culture and history! We were in awe of everything we saw and really got to know Tunisians’ warmth and hospitality through our time with Boutheina. We loved this experience so much and couldn’t recommend it highly enough!!!
