We did the day tour and loved it! There was a lot worth seeing and you got an interesting impression of the culture and history of the Tunisians. Our tour guide Salem and driver Abdoul did a great job! Salem explained many interesting details about the various sights, easily switching from fluent German to French to explain the same to the other fellow travelers. The man even knows Schwitzer-Dütsch. Insanity!! The high temperatures were very bearable due to the dry heat and the long stays in the well air-conditioned jeep. You get a lot for the relatively low price. I 100% recommend this tour!

The best lady guide showed us many places telling us very interestingly, revealing many local customs, she took care of us at every moment. A great alternative to sightseeing in large groups, we were driving 6 people in an off-road car. Great adventure, we visited many local places, we got to know Arabic phrases. You can feel safe with an abdul driver. Juju you are the Best tour guide
