Great walking tour through the maze of the Medina. We went inside buildings and through streets that we wouldn’t have been able to without a guide. Good information, without being too much. Better joining instructions would have been helpful. The square is very busy with lots of people and it was awkward standing outside the hotel as the security kept asking us questions.

guide was prompt and very knowledgeable. His English was very good. We visited the Tunis Medina on a Sunday, when shops were not open and it was easy to see the architecture.

It was wonderful! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and showed us places that we wouldn’t see by ourselves! Highly recommended it

Fahmi was an excellent and very informative and interesting guide who was very easy to get on with and I would highly recommend.

I had the greatest quality tour with Mr. Yousef. A very well structured tour.
