As we were only in Tunisia for a week, we decided this would be the perfect trip to cram in as much as we could of sites and the culture in the different areas of Tunisia. It was an early start and about an hour into the tour we had to stop at a toll booth and transfer to another... More

The tour consists of an 800 mile round trip on a coach over 2 days. You visit small towns, an amphitheatre in El Jem, take a camel around the Sahara Desert and a jeep safari through baron landscape where you see the set from star wars!

There was a chain of companies involved and they all got 5 stars, including the tour itself. I booked online the Sahara Explorer Tour with City Discovery. No problems there. The company that was actually behind it was Inventa Tourisme. They were very helpful and even arranged a transfer to Tunis on our return to Hammamet. It was more expensive... More

Sahara Explore Tour booked through Thomas Cook. A wonderful two day adventure I will never forget, be warned however that camel rides and carriage rides, an integral part of the tour will cost extra. A lot of it is staged specifically for the tourist but still enjoyable. Loved the 4 x 4 ride up into the mountains and the spectacular... More

We booked the Sahara Explorer tour with Thomas Cook in November. Originally we were not planning on this tour but the way it was sold to us completely changed our mind. If it wasn't for the people on the tour I don't think we wold have enjoyed it as much. On the first day we were told we would see... More

If you go to Tunisia get a trip to the Sahara Desert. Caught in a sand storm, being attacked by friendly bandits and generally having the most incredible experience you could possibly want and then back to the hotel for a dip in the pool.... What more could you ask for?

Two day's tour in the Sahara! It was great! We visited amphitheater El Jem, the original inhabitants of Tunisia (burbers if I am correct) and went with a quad through the Sahara. After this by camel to watch the sunset. Spent the night in an old ford. Food was great! Nice swimming pool as well! After an early start we... More

I have just arrived back from the Sahara excursion. If you don't like travelling for long periods of time, then I really suggest you don't go. I was really disappointed with the overnight accommodation. The aircon didn't work in the room and the hotel was of a real poor standard, as was the food. But on the plus side. I... More

The 2 day trip from your hotel to the Sahara and back is full of bum numbing bus journeys, very early mornings and monotony. But if you don’t do it, you may never know the feel of Saharan sand on your skin or even in your mouth – it’s as fine as air and sneaks in everywhere like a thief.... More
