Full description

Start the tour with pick up from your accommodation in Tunis. First, drive to Carthage - a historic city located on a hill next to the Gulf of Tunis. The city was founded by the Phoenicians and contains extensive archaeological ruins. Take a tour through this Unesco listed town, learning about the central role the city played in Antiquity and in the Punic Wars.  Next, set off to explore Kairouan - another historic settlement which was founded in 670 AD and flourished under the Aghlabid Dynasty in the 9th Century. Discover the Great Mosque, the Aglabits Bassins, and Sidi Sahbi Mausoleum. Also, enjoy a relaxing stroll through the narrow streets of the old Medina. Stop for a typical lunch in a local restaurant to recharge at your own expense. After lunch, proceed to the small village of El Jem to explore the impressive ruins of the largest colosseum in North Africa. Find out about how this huge amphitheater could hold up to 35,000 spectators. Marvel at this 3rd-century monument which illustrates the grandeur and extent of Imperial Rome. Finally, return to Tunis where you will be dropped back at your accommodation and the tour concludes.

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!!!
