I had the chance to spend this day with my sister and we loved the places visited, the activities discovered, the landscapes through which we passed. A driver at the top, and a special mention to the guide Mr. Achref, who knew how to make us travel through time to tell us the history of Tunis, he was very protective and ensured throughout our excursion that we lack nothing. He knew how to arrange and improve and made this trip away from Tunis unique. Just thank you for the experience, highly recommended.

We were picked up from our hotel in Hammamet. After that we visited the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Thugga and the Mosque of Testour. We had lunch in Zaghouan. We also looked at the water temple in front of Zaghouan. In consultation, since Sousse would have been included in our booking and the tour was very time-consuming, we also looked at the medina in Tunis. All in all, it was a very nice tour worth seeing. Our guide Sourour answered all questions and explained everything to us in detail.

Even at very short notice they were able to make us a fair offer for transport from the airport to the hotel and back. Very friendly and helpful contact also via WhatsApp and even recommendations for scheduling. Excellent service all round, highly recommended

The mosque in Kairouan and the coliseum African are amazing. The mosaic museums in El Jem and Sousse are beautiful. Thanks to our guide and our driver to make this trip interesting and safe.

Slim is a good guide. Great sites we visited as well.
