Not only a great tour guide, but Riadh goes above and beyond. My partner lost is phone and Riadh was instrumental to helping us get it back. We can't thank him enough. He is super kind. He even helped another random tourist by offering him an internet hotspot and helped him download a taxi app and order a taxi. He is organized and thorough. He took us to a great cafe during the tour for good citronnade and a fantastic view of the city.

His knowledge of the area is impressive, and he shares it in a way that's easy to understand and remember.
