Mohammed and Ishmael were very nice, had a lot of patience when we shopped. Always waited for us. Everyone should do this tour on Djerba you can see the whole island. With the private jeep you can stop at any time and take photos. Mohammed told and always closed The story of every sightseeing spot. He speaks very good German. A super beautiful island with many highlights, great tour. I can recommend it to everyone.

Very friendly and local guide as well as the driver gave you an insight into the island that we would never have gotten on our own, highly recommended!

Had a nice and educational day around the island thanks to Monji the driver and guide Moana. Highlights of the day were Djerbahood with colorful graffitis, decorated entrance doors, cafes, and artist run small stores, and Houmt Souk. Note the main synagogue is closed on Saturdays.
