What travelers are saying
- We visited this as part of a guided tour of the area. It is rather small but contains information on a variety of aspects of the local lifestyle, including details about camels, plants, costumes and tattoos as well as having a tent laid out displaying all the accoutrements for living in the desert.Written November 9, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I want to thank Juanita for her transparency regarding the weather and her excellent communication. She offered to issue a refund due to sandstorms, and I decided to go ahead and have fun. I have been traveling a lot and moving from one place to another for living. The Sahara Desert is special. Munir and Ali, made it extra special.
I use to think the desert is a landmark, and the Sahara Desert is a destination. After spending 3D2N with Bedouin, my perspective shifted. Both helped me to see life that I have never thought of before. Use sand to clean oily pans. Bake in the Bedouin way. The Bedouin couscous with salted fish is amazing. If you are looking for fair trade and sustainable business, camels welfare and truly wanting to experience Sahara thru Bedouin eyes, this is the tour you should go with. You can't get better than this unless you are Bedouin and born in the area.
Thank you, Juanita, Ali, and Munir. I am planning to return for a longer one in a year or two.Written May 12, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This tour was more than I expected. Our guide Rafik, show us the true Tunisia which in all other cases would be stayed hidden. We where lucky to be the only couple in the tour and enjoyed private services in the price of group. Definitely recommended !Written May 18, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I recommend quad tour as an activity in Douz.
Suitable for large groups and little children too.
Try to opt for timing around sunset to get the best of the experience!Written December 2, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.

- After being pesterd by the bloke at the Riviera to buy a place on this trip, we opted for the afternoon session. We were picked up by a horse and carriage outside our hotel and picked up a few at some other hotels and he took us to the Camel Station. We had to pay 3 dina for an ' Alibarbar' to keep our heads cool as we were going into the Sahara Desert. We were then taken to where about 20 camels were all lined up, looking prettty bad condition to be honest. You were chucked up onto to your camel and I do mean chucked. Those not wanting to ride the camels were taken the same route in the same horse and cart that brought us there. Time passed and people who had enough of the camels were asked to get off so that the ones unable to ride the first time, could have a go.
We then pulled up into a garden thingy midgig where we were promised we would see the camel drinking a bottle of Coke. But to my dissapointment, it didnt. We were however allowed to feed the camel a piece of cactus using our mouths which you got a big kiss from the camel afterwards. Then as you usually do on any non-Thomas Cook excursion, we were taken to this hand made pottery shop which was nice to see a bit of the culture and a little lovely old lady was out the back making some hand made bread which was actually quite nice dipped in the olive oil. You were kindly requested to live a tip for the lady which was fair enough, we didn't mind.
We then got taken back to the depot if you like, and shown the photos of us which we could purchas for about 30 dinar, which was good because you got about 25 professionaly printed photos. There was not enough spaces on the horse and cart to take us back so we were crammed into this tiny little 4 seaterone to our hotel.
On the whole, a truly enjoyable experience, if I were to return to Tunisia, I would defo do this again!Written February 4, 2014This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- So our stop in Douz - was all about riding camels .
We arrived fairly early but already the sun was up and shining. So given this we have suited up - with headcover included before we got on the camel.
Once we were ready we got split into groups - got a camel "assigned" and we had to get on the saddle.
And once the procedure was done for all in the group the "driver/hurder" if you want took the lead camel by bridle and we started the 30+ minutes trip into the desert.
The saddle was comfortable nothing to say - the handle was kind of rough - got a cut in my palm from the wood - nothing serious (but annoying enough to not give the perfect score).
Animals were beautiful - all the camels looking good - and not particularly smelly (people told us - camels smell - these were clean) so it was nice ride with/on some nice animals.
For those of you who are not interested in riding the camels there is the option to take a quad ride through the desert also starting from here. So you have the choice.
Overall a very good experience I recommend you try it if you have the opportunityWritten December 29, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I love this plaza. There are plenty shops with handy crafts and handmade genuine desert slippers. You can watch craftsmen making the slippers which are good to walk on the sand with.
The craftsmen usually have descent prices. Re-sellers and boutique owner tend to have more expensive price, I recommend to bargain some.
There is a nice cafe in the corner that I recommend. They have a second and third floor that gives customers a view on the plaza. I loved their home made yogurt.
On the outskirts of the plaza are more business worth exploring because the prices are cheaper: Sahara slippers, kilim rugs, fry bread, food, drinks, banks, pharmacy, travel agencies, dates stores any thing or service a traveler may need.Written January 5, 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
