Tunis, Tunisia Cruise stop with a local guide

We are just back from Costa Concordia's Western Mediterranean Cruise trip. Through tripadvisor we hired a local guide named Ben Jebara M.Tahar.(He is active in this forum.) We are very happy with his service. Not only that he speaks perfect English, he is also very knowledgeable and proud of Tunisia's history. We visited the beautiful Sidi Bou Saïd, had fun bargaining in Medina and also spent some time in Byrsa hill Carthage and museum.We all enjoyed this eye opening experience. Unlike some posts in the forum, we were not haggled by taxi drivers, they were quite regulated in the port. We actually found it very safe over there.

BTW, the price with the guide is a lot reasonable compared with the price on the cruise ship. The most important thing is you could visit more places with the local guide. Thank you Ben.

Hello-

My wife and I will be visiting Tunis on May 18 on the Louis Majesty. I believe the ship expect to dock at 1 PM and leave at 7 PM. We are interested in visiting the Bardo Museum, Sidi Bou Said, and Carthage, if possible. We are not interested in shopping or dining.

Are you available? How much would you charge to meet us at the ship, take us around and return us to the ship?

Please reply to mlongo@umich.edu as I don't monitor the forum.

I too would be interested in a similar tour on October 6th. Please let me know the cost for 4 adults would be. Thanks

To the original poster, did you feel that you had enough time at each stop on the tour? It is a shame that the stop is so short. I am on the same ship as you this fall. I am having trouble finding reviews. Do you have any tips from the other ports of call?

Rob

Ben,

My family and I are going to be visiting Tunis in August and would like to talk to you about your services. Do you have a contact e-mail so we could communicate? I'm on a cruise and will be in port from 8:30 am until 4 pm and would like to squeeze in as much as possible.

Thanks,

Kelly
