About the Guru

Hello welcome, my name is Nabil and I have been working as a tour guide for almost thirty years accompanying groups of different nationalities throughout the country to help them discover the hidden charms, outside the usual and monotonous tourist routes offered by travel agencies. Always in small groups, without haste, without stress.

About the Tour

There is no better way to enjoy the charm of the old oriental-style city and discover its most hidden attractions, than by walking quietly through its winding streets. Apart from its old and well-known monuments such as the Great Mosque or the Ribat, the city has several hidden corners and buildings unknown even to the natives and whose originality may surprise. We will start with the Ribat, this fortress dating from the 9th century after Christ, a few years before the great mosque was built, which also began as a fortress before turning it into a mosque in the middle of the same century. Both monuments stand out for a new architectural style introduced by the Arabs in Tunisia and North Africa. (Tickets not included). After the visit, we will start our walk inside the old town, following the north wall and passing other smaller religious buildings. You can also visit some of the old houses in the medina. We will reach the highest area of the city, which to this day is still occupied by the Kasbah (Alcazaba), the Forlalza palace and formerly the seat and official residence of the governors of Sousse for centuries. Currently, the fortress houses the second archaeological museum in the country with a rich collection of Roman mosaics whose visit is essential to travel with the different cultures that the city knew in its history. We will continue our walk along the southern wall to end up crossing the souks (old markets) that still maintain their old structure occupying several streets and alleys with various stalls of handicrafts, spices, vegetables, cloth, clothes in an atmosphere of social bustle being the liveliest area of the medina. Before finishing our walk and leaving the medina, we will have a mint tea or a Tunisian coffee in one of the old cafes in the souk. We will always be at your disposal for more information and more details.
