We booked this trip with Thomas Cook, and it is one of the best trips we've ever done. There's a lot of time in the coach (but interesting things to see along the way), and some very early starts, but well worth it for what you see in the 2 days.
We went from Sousse, stopping at El Djem amphitheatre (better than Rome), Matmata (for the Star Wars pit houses & some fabulous mountain scenery, traditional lunch in a pit house hotel), then dressing up as Bedouins and camel riding on the Sahara as the sun set. Lovely hotel in Douz, with excellent food. Early start to see the sunrise on Chott el Jerid, then a drive to Tozeur and a horse & buggy ride through the date oasis. Next into 4x4s for a drive up into the mountains, with great scenery and a visit to the Chebika oasis (amazing walk up over the mountain & back down through a Berber village), before a long drive to Kairouan (views over the huge mosque from the carpet shop).
The inevitable shopping opportunities were generally welcome breaks from the coach, and not overdone. The trip was good value at 179TD including all meals & entry fees, there was an extra charge of maybe £20 for the camel riding.
I would thoroughly recommend it.
