Few countries on earth match the historical, cultural, and natural splendor of Tunisia. Begin and end in the capital city of Tunis with its wondrous medina (ancient city) and fascinating souqs (markets). Travel onward to ancient Carthage, one of the most important cities in the ancient Roman Empire. Afterward, head south to the ruins of Dougga and the sacred Islamic site of Kairouan, the mountain villages of Tozeur, Chebika, Tamerza, and Mides, and splendid oases in the desert. Next, head east to Tataouine and its ksour (fortified adobe villages), and to Djerba island with both an amazing history and stunning beaches. On a leisurely return journey northward toward Tunis, view troglodyte homes, old Roman ruins, and other significant archaeological sites in towns such as Matmata, El Jem, Mahdia, Sousse, Zaghouan, and Thuburbo Majus.
"We have traveled extensively and have met only a few guides like Mohamed Halouani. He is extremely well-informed about the different local cultures. His forte is to arouse travelers' passion and make history come alive. He made certain we were comfortable at all times." ~Yorgo & Hrisula Lukidis
