    Timely and Timeless Tunisia

    Tunis, the desert, Berber villages, and Djerba Island with Mohamed Halouani

    Explore Tunisia at a unique moment in time, led by our enthusiastic, scholarly and extremely personable senior guide, Mohamed Halouani. Experience the essence of Tunisia, present and past.  Meet Tunisians who are eager to discuss the enormous potential of their new democracy, including artists and photographers who witnessed the startling events of the 2011 Arab Spring. Visit Berber villages and outposts, experience the magnificence and vastness of the Sahara desert, explore the idyllic Mediterranean island of Djerba. Throughout, stay in unique accommodations including a four-star 100-year-old palace in the heart of Tunis, boutique village hotels, a luxury oasis tented camp, and a comfortable working farmstead in the shadow of magnificent Mount Zaghouan.

    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
