What to expect
You'll be picked up from your hotel in Algiers and transferred to Algiers airport , you'll fly one hour to reach Constantine , once you reach there your driver will pick you up and go to your hotel to drop luggage and then begin the following trip schedule  Day 1 :  Day trip to Djemila Roman ruins  , it's about 2 hours drive from Constantine  , ( LUNCH included )  Djémila Known under its antique name Cuicul,  is an establishment of an ancient Roman colony founded during the reign of Nerva (96 - 98 A.D.). The Roman town occupied a singular defensive position. Cuicul is one of the flowers of Roman architecture in North Africa.  Remarkably adapted to the  constraints of the mountainous site, on a rocky spur which spreads at an altitude of 900 m, between the wadi Guergour and the wadi Betame, two mountain torrents, the town has its own Senate and Forum. Around the beginning of the 3rd century, it expanded beyond its ramparts with the creation of the Septimius Severus Temple, the Arch of Caracalla, the market and the civil basilica. The site has also been marked by Christianity in the form of several cult buildings: a cathedral, a church and its baptistry are considered among the biggest of the Paleochristian period. The site of Djémila comprises an impressive collection of mosaic pavings, illustrating mythological tales and scenes of daily life. Day 2 : Day trip to Timgad Roman ruins from Constantine , 2hours and half drive ( Lunch included ) 110 km to the south of Constantine, is a consummate example of a Roman military colony created ex nihilo. The Colonia Marciana Traiana Thamugadi was founded in 100 A.D. by Trajan, probably as an encampment for the 3rd Augustan Legion which, thereafter, was quartered at Lambaesis. Its plan, laid out with great precision, illustrates Roman urban planning at its height. By the middle of the 2nd century, the rapid growth of the city had ruptured the narrow confines of its original foundation. Timgad spread beyond the perimeters of its ramparts and several major public buildings are built in the new quarters: Capitolium, temples, markets and baths. Most of these buildings date from the Severan period when the city enjoyed its Golden Age, also attested by immense private residences. Day 3 : Constantine city tour ( Lunch included )  a city tour to constantine will include a visit to the bridges , emir abdelkader mosque , the dey palace , the monuments of the deads... then catch late evening flight back to Algiers , once you arrive Algiers you'll be transferred to your hotel

The best of Northeastern Algeria
Feb 2020
During these two days, I managed to cover three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, thanks to the kindness and flexibility of Mr. Wassim, who efficiently and very kindly accommodated my travel needs, budget, schedule and interest. From Constantine, I was welcomed by Lamia and Nabil - and we explored the treasures of Timgad, Djemila and Beni Hammad. The third site was a challenge to reach, but yet we managed to cover all these places.

Exceeded our expectations!!!!!
Jan 2020
This was our first trip to Algeria and we had no idea what to expect. We were so pleased to see Wassim waiting for us and making sure that we were checked into our flight for Constantine. Our guide, Lamia, and our driver Haroun were waiting for us in Constantine and off we went to Djemila. The drive was easy and the sight breathtaking. We had a guide who gave us excellent history in the museum and at the excavation site, From the site, we had a great lunch and were delivered to our hotel tired but happy. The next day was Timgad and we did not think it could top Djemila but it did. The Roman ruins are breathtaking and again our guide and driver were excellent. The tour of Constantine was with a different guide, Ridad, and she showed her beautiful city making it come alive for us. The Grand Mosque, the museum, the palace, and the bridges have great history and photo opportunities. Lunch was at a local restaurant and delicious! Highly recommend this city and this tour! Thank you Wassim!!!
