Riyad was excellent-informed, passionate about his country and willing to adapt the tour to the interests of our group. Without his local knowledge of ancient Carthage we would never have been able to cover as many wonderful attractions nor incredible material. Well recommended to one and all.

Riadh made my stay in Sidi Bou Saïd beyond great! He is an awesome guide that will patiently guide you and explain you all the context and history you require while visiting the places, he also adds a lot of his knowledge and personal trait to make it an incredible tour. We had very interesting conversations about the culture and live in Tunesia and what added even more to the tour was his kind and caring character. You are in excellent hands with him!! Totally recommended.

What a fun, private tour. Wife and I met Riadh at a coffee shop. 50 men drinking coffee outside so he found us in an instant (only female). We chatted over a quick coffee and then began a 3+ hr tour of Sidi Bou Said and Carthage. Being American he also took us inside the American WW2 North African Cemetery which was as you expect( spotless, beautiful, and moving). We put in nearly 16,000 steps in and around. We are very flexible and walked wherever , including thru a farmer field to get to the mosque and Roman ruins. Wish we had time to continue on with his afternoon tour
