We very much enjoyed our Tunisia tour. Rafik was very polite, knowledgeable and spoke English very well. Our driver was excellent too. We realized how important it was to have a driver who knows the roads and regions well, particularly in the southern parts of the country.
We were somewhat surprised by the diversity of the country and much more European influence in the northern regions than anticipated. We were also surprised at how cold it was this time of year — a snow storm followed us from Dougga.
I would say that the highlights for us were the Douz camel rides, the amazing ruins and history of Carthage, Bulla Regia, Utica, Kerkouane and Dougga. El Djem was excellent too. We enjoyed walking through the beach town of Sidi Bou Said… so beautiful. We also found the three oases (Mides, etc.) really beautiful too. We loved Kairouan and Tataouine. Lastly, we loved Tunis and the Tunisia Palace was excellent all around, with really good dinner and breakfasts in their restaurant too.
Thanks again for organizing our itinerary so thoroughly. We will certainly recommend Tunisia and Mosaic North Africa to our friends here in the United States and elsewhere.
