Full description
Day 1:  Get picked up from your accommodation and head to Kairouan, the holy city. Visit the famous mosque of Okbaa Ibn Nafaa, the mausoleum of Sidi Sahbi, and Aghlabide's Basins before continuing on to the Roman ruins of Sufetula. After touring the archeological site and having lunch, head to Tozeur, known as the oasis paradise. Stroll through the alleys of the old medina before checking in to a 4-star hotel for the night. Day 2 :  Head out in the morning to discover the incredible mountain oases of the area. Make a first stop at the village of Chebika, famous for its water source that springs from the side of the mountain. Afterwards, visit the gorgeous Tamerza Waterfall and the Mides Canyons before enjoying a local lunch at a homestay. In the afternoon, journey over the sand dunes, through the old rally track, and cross the salt lake of Chott El Gharsa to reach the famous village of Mos Espa where much of the Star Wars movies were shot. Take in the intense colors of the sunset and enjoy a walk in the Mos Espa village before getting back to the hotel for dinner and overnight. Day 3 :  Leave Tozeur early in the morning and head to the salt lake of Chott Djerid, the largest salt lake in Northern Africa. Stop to admire the sunrise and see the first rays of sunshine land on a layer of salt stretching as far as the eye can see. Continue to Douz, the gateway to the desert where you will have time to take a camel-ride or go on a quad tour in the dunes. Stroll through the Douz souk before heading to Matmata, an ancient troglodyte village. Visit a local host and enjoy a cup of rosemary tea served with olive oil and honey to tide you over until lunch. Stop for lunch on your way to the amphitheater of El Jem, an impressive Roman monument that rivals the Roman Colosseum. After touring the amphitheater, get returned to your hotel.

It was really great! We met a lot of Tunisia in just 3 days. Our guide, was the best we had ever had before, spoke perfect Spanish, and was also very cultured, he knew everything. Yazid, hopefully we'll see you again, it was a pleasure to meet you.

The guide's explanation was interesting, and it was a very good tour because I was able to know the cultural background and story of each place I visited. In addition, it is a recommended tour for short-term trips because you can visit many spots efficiently.
