Just wondering what kind of budget would I need to plan for a 10 day trip to Tunisia in May - fly in and out of Tunis. Travel around country a little - on public transport, stay in budget-mid-range accommodation. Eat in restaurants, local but not fast food type places, entry to some sites...
I'd be grateful if someone could give me an idea.
Thanks very much
Would like to know if is a tap water fine for drinking around TN.
B'cos I'm going there on a cycling trip would appreciate also inf's regarding the air temperatures in the first half of May around the country and what would be the temperatures at the end of October and first half of November.
We will be arriving into Enfidha Airport shortly after 23:00 on an evening in early May and we were wondering what the options would be for direct transit to Tunis - presumably it will need to be a shuttle or taxi at that time of the evening as I doubt public transport is still running. Anyone done this recently, and able to give an indication of the cost?
My two friends and i are planning a trip to Tunisia next month. We are thinking of visiting Tunis, Dougga, Carthage, Kairouan, Eljem, Tozeur, Douz, Ksar Ghilane and Matmata in two weeks. We are also thinking of doing 2 or 3 day desert trek. i really appreciate if you can provide me any recommedations on quick and cheap transportation from one city to the others, a good tour for desert trek either from Douz or Tozeur.
I have to fly to Tunis to transfer elsewhere and since I have never been to Tunisia I am contemplating seeing if I can have an overnight stop-over. I would already have about a 9 hour layover but thought it would be nice to have a full day. I'm wondering if there is much to see and do to make it worthwhile? And if so, what would you recommend seeing or doing in such a short amount of time?
With a EU passport, I can get into Tunisia without a visa, right? I have a German passport.
Do I need to show a return or onward ticket?
And what is the security situation right now for a solo Western woman?
I am arriving in Matmata today and hoping to stay at Marhala. I am a single traveler and will be looking for a tour both in Matmata and then into the Sahara. For the latter I was hoping for a 4X4 tour and not a camel trek. I am hoping to find other people to form a group. My Tunisia phone number is 28213578. If you are doing the same and can use another in your group, please call/send me a message.
Has anyone been to the Tunisian sahara in late June/early July? Will it be too hot? I'm thinking of a week in Tunisia around that time. I live in Australia so have a fairly high tolerance of the heat, especially dry heat. Is it worth visiting Djerba too? Or is it just too touristy at that time of year?

I will be getting the ferry from Sicily to Tunisia sometime in the first week of August with my friend. We have 3 weeks to travel around Tunisia, we've been doing our research but I often find personal experience is the best thing to go by! Is anyone an intrepid Tunisia traveler with some not-to-be missed locations/sights/experiences?!
We are three friends (female) who want to do a 2 or 3 day 4x4 trip through the desert, leaving from Tozeur and preferably finishing up on Djerba (going via all the usual jazz). This would be in March. I would really appreciate advice on:
1) whether it's essential (or even highly advisable) to book this in advance before arriving in Tunisia, or whether we can turn up in Tozeur and bargain around once we're there. We don't have loads of time to waste (we'd be arriving in Tozeur on a Monday and probably wanting to leave on the Tuesday afternoon) but we also don't have loads of money to waste either.
2) any tour guide anyone can recommend. Most important thing is that a) we don't get regularly taken via souvenir tat-shops, insisting on staying in tourist hotels etc; and b) he doesn't hit on us constantly (<< you may recognise the voice of experience in this....!)
3) We'd really ... more »
I'm looking at heading off on a 2 or 3 day desert trek from Douz some time between the 17th and the 28th of March and was wondering if 1 or more travellers out there would like to join me! Very open to suggestions, but would probably prefer a 4x4 trip - as long as it includes a quick trip on a camel at some point just so I know I made the right choice not to do a whole trek on one.
I'm a 20 year old Australian male, by the way.
can anyone tell me when the Ksour Festival is held. Lonely Planet says November but a trip adviser person claimed it was 17 to 19 March. Which is correct ??
We are planning on going to Tunisia in March. However I have some concerns having seen thetv coverage and press reports on the current political situation. How safe is it for tourists. Are there certain areas which one should not travel to??
I am thinking of taking the ferry from Sicily to Tunisia around March/April - anyone have good suggestions, ferry companies, travel times, etc?
Thanks - glad to see the Thorn Tree up and running,
I will have two nights in Tunis when I arrive in Tunisia for a tour, and anticipate that will give me enough time to see the city sights.
I then have two nights at the end of the tour, and would like to spend time on a beach not far from Tunis.
Can anybody recommend a beach, and a reasonably priced hotel or B&B nearby ?
