Tour Tunisia

The Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) is currently advising against all but essential travel to Tunisia and we have consequently suspended our tours to the country. The situation is being closely monitored and we will re-launch our programmes once the FCO advice is changed and it is safe to return to Tunisia.

Take in the bewildering contrasts of the familiar and the foreign on a tour of Tunisia. The wonderful mix of ancient and modern, desert and oasis, classical sites, ports and medinas is an exotic blend that gives this country its flavour and appeal.

The country encompasses beautiful coastlines, stunning Islamic architecture, Berber villages and the fascinating remains of once-bustling Roman cities. With its feet in the Sahara and its head in the Mediterranean, Tunisia covers an impressive diversity of scenic ground.

There are several UNESCO World Heritage sites to visit in Tunisia, including the impressive ancient Roman city of Dougga, Carthage and El Djem. Other highlights include the beautiful blue and white streets of Sidi Bou Said village, visits to the ‘Holy City’ of Kairouan and the major resort of Monastir, and the conserved fortress monasteries of Ribat of Sousse.

The capital of Tunis is home to 13th-century medina, the palatial Bardo museum, famous for its spectacular Roman mosaics and Islamic art, and the massive Al-Zaytuna Mosque. To the east is the ancient site of Carthage, one of the great cities of antiquity, where you’ll be able to explore the Antonine baths and unveil the lost city’s story at the Carthage National Museum.

Weather

Weather & Climate

The areas of northern Tunisia have a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, occasionally rainy winters.

When to go

Spring and autumn draws fewer visitors. This is also the best time to visit the desert regions of the south and central Tunisia as temperaturs are more pleasant.

Testimonials

This holiday was a brilliant success. Our tour manager and guide, Nader, was superb. All in our group were keen to learn and Nader's knowledge and enthusiasm for his country inspired all of us
