Hoping I can use Trip Adviser to share my grief with other Trip Advisers of the slaughter of innocent tourists, sunbathing on their private beach. May you rest in peace and thank you to the caring Tunisians who tried to help and comfort the injured and dying. Jennybee

We had a great experience at the Medina. Lots of lovely food, snacks available with all your traditional tourist gifts to buy. Spices, sunglasses, cigarettes, kaftans etc. Just be prepared for lots of hussle and bussle and just be careful with your bags!

We visited the Medina in April on a Thomas Cook excursion from Port El Kantaoui. It was a lovely day and really worth going. Being with the rep meant that we had somebody there always to answer our questions and also advise us on fair pricing etc..

Not a pleasant place at all!! Plenty of shops if only you were left alone to look.... The shop owners hassle you constantly and will not take no for an answer!! Stay clear!!
