Born and raised in the medina (historic center) of Tunis I have been driving throughout the Tunisian territory for more than 30 years ... driving people is a passion for me I love to discover the secrets of my city both the modern and the ancient part I like to share the daily newspaper of the inhabitant of the medina also divides a very Tunisian lunch that cannot be found outside a typical Berber Arab house .... I'm sure you will be very happy

Tour description

The tour begins at the Porta del Mare , a kind of border between past and present, between old and new. From this gate one has an idea of the modern part of the city , where the French, Italians, Spaniards, Maltese, etc. lived.
These include Dar Lasram, Dar Hussein, Dar Mohsen, Dar Daouletli, Dar el Jeld and these are just a few examples of the many palaces we visit... as well as Celtic sites, one of the oldest mosques in the Muslim world, the Ezzituna Mosque and many other spirituals from later times, locally called Zaouïa, where sex asks for mercy and helps to walk through this medina to discover the souks (each souk specializes in certain products).
Thus we discover the rich variety of colors of both the products and the beautiful doors of the medina with the symbol of great color and green indicating the strength of a spiritual place, etc.

Finally, after 3 or 4 hours of visiting, we are back at the French door where our tour ends and the same door where our tour started.

Salah was an amazing tour guide. He knows a ton of information about Tunisian history, and explained everything in a way that was understandable and interesting. He led us all around the back streets, into buildings, and through the medina's winding alleys to show us stores, cafes, and local traditions - helping us to notice all the details we would have not seen on our own. Salah knows Tunis and the medina very well, and is friends with everyone; by the end of the tour, he feels like a friend to you as well. He is honest, kind, and willing to answer any questions about travel, his country, etc. I would HIGHLY recommend booking a tour with Salah if you're in Tunis!

Salah was a great guide! I was alone on my tour with him and it was like talking to a friend. He was really nice and helpful and also helped me to better accustom to the Medina. Was one of the most personal and memorable tours I have been on. Thank you Salah! The only thing I want to point out is that his English is not flawless. You will have to concentrate a bit sometimes to be able to follow. But for me that was just fine and you can always ask him!
