Thank you so much to our guide Riadh - he was so friendly and gave us a lot of information about Sidi Bou Said and Carthago. We can totally recommend the tour. We did the Tunis Tour with him and then decided to do another one with him in Sidi Bou Said because it was really good.

This tour was super fun and an unforgettable way to see the historic sites. Riadh is knowledgeable and personable; my favorite part was he is really funny and he was very entertaining while learning about history and current Tunisia. Be ready to write down some quotes because he will have you laughing and telling your friends later. He is also extremely helpful with any questions about the city, places to go or foods to eat. Riadh really cares that you enjoy your time. This was especially nice as a solo traveler to find someone you can trust. I definitely recommend this tour and remember to tip your guide well! He deserves it!
