Planning Your Tour to Tunisia
We hope to answer most of your questions here. However, we understand that each traveller is unique and may have questions not addressed on this page. If that is you, please do not hesitate to send us a message, we’ll do our best to respond within 24 hours.
Tunisia Tours offers private tours only; the group is who you decide to travel with. This means that we plan a tour around your and your party’s availability. We do not have pre-scheduled tours that you can join and travel with other adventurers whom you do not know.
Traveling alone in Tunisia can certainly be an experience of a lifetime. As we focus on custom private tours, each tour includes a private vehicle, professional driver, and a knowledgable licensed guide. If you are traveling solo, you will need to assume all hotel, driver, and guide expenses on your own. While this can increase your individual costs, we have served solo travelers in Tunisia with much success. We’d love the opportunity to provide you an amazing experience here in Tunisia.
TRAVELING WITH CHILDREN
Tunisia is a great place for children. There are many enjoyable activities for children of all ages. Our own children love all that there is to do. Some examples include beaches, museums, camel treks, and quad rides to name a few. Out tours are customizable and we’d love to help you plan your family’s visit.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR OWN TOUR
Custom tour itineraries are not foreign to Tunisia Tours. As all tours with us are private, we are able to make modifications to any tour. We are happy to work with you to put together an itinerary that fits your travel style and desires.
A professionally licensed guide is required for all of our tours in Tunisia. Our English-speaking guides are knowledgeable and friendly and are waiting to show you the best of Tunisia!
Tunisia Tours advises you to check with the Tunisian Embassy in your passport country regarding visa requirements. According to our latest research, Canadian, US, & UK passport holders do not need a tourist visa prior to arrival in country. Australian passport holders may need to obtain a tourist visa from the Tunisian Embassy prior to visiting. As a general rule, passports should be valid 6-months beyond the anticipated date of departure from Tunisia and have at least one blank page for entry and departure stamps.
Booking international flights is the responsibility of the client. Tunisia Tours does not handle flight bookings with the exception of any domestic (within Tunisia) flights included in your tour package; costs for domestic flights are already calculated into your tour price.
Travel insurance the responsibility of the traveller. Tunisia Tours does not include travel insurance in our private tours. However, we highly encourage you to purchase travel insurance from a company that specializes in this product to protect your investment in your dream vacation.
Once your tour is booked with us, we will communicate with you about your arrival in country. In most cases, a private vehicle with an English-speaking driver will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your first night’s hotel.
Food in Tunisia is delicious! However, we understand that serious food allergies exist. Tunisia Tours cannot guarantee you an allergen-free visit but we are happy to discuss your allergies and offer suggestions that may help you avoid any severe allergens.
As a general rule, non-Muslims are not allowed in mosques in Tunisia with a few extraordinary exceptions. While all mosques prohibit non-Muslims from accessing the prayer halls, the Zitouna Mosque in the Tunis medina allows visitors to view the courtyard (though entrance is still not permitted). Also, the Mosque of Uqba in Kairouan permits tourists during open visiting hours. Visitors to mosques should dress in modest clothing and respect the rules and guidelines of the mosques.
