Amazing place. I booked the excursion via GetYourGuide. It was great choice. Everyone who is visiting Tunisia should go to Carthage. Unforgettable experience.

“Ruins Were Interesting... Aggressive Street Vendors”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

The ruins were interesting. Smaller in size than many other sites What always spoils the moment are the extremely aggressive street vendors attached to the site. They peddle their cheap trinkets and would have you believe they are worth a million dollars. This was my last trip to such a site!

“Amazing ruins of an historical Roman City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

The ruins of the Roman city of Carthage. A great opportunity for photo taking. One small aspect of Tunisia's massive historical importance.

“tour ruins & sidi bou said”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

took a ship tour to Carthage and ancient town of Sidi Bou Said. Carhage is impressive and very historic. It is not as well preserved as Pompeii or Ephesus, but still well worth a visit. The visit to Sidi Bou Said was the highlight to get the feel for Tunisian shops and bartering.

“impressive site with lots to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

we visited this as in april and it was not too busy
the ruins are worth a visit and there are underground tunnels to explore as well as pieces of carved stones and pillars around the place
you get a real idea of what it was like originally as some parts are not well preserved and look as if they are about to fall down but you can see how the walls were built and what was between them
if it gets too hot you can take shade in an underground tunnel
not much exists above ground but lots of areas to visit at the site and walk around
there is a model to show you how it looked originally and an information board to explain what the ruins are
there is also a small shop to buy souvenirs from on your way out

once outside you are hassled by the locals trying to sell you something as this is a very popular tourist attraction
