My Tunisian itineraryHi all,
I just finished my itinerary for a week in Tunisia in the month of September and wanted to know whether in your opinion this is too rushed or doable, as well as find an answer to a few question I don't seem able to find answers to online...
Fri: Arrive in Tunis at 8pm and get an early sleep
Sat: Wonder around Tunis all day - Get a night train to Tozeur (according to seat61 it's at 20.50 and I can't seem to find any info on http://www.sncft.com.tn - but maybe my French isn't that good, does anyone have a more up-to-date timetable? How far in advance should I be booking it?
Sun: Chill out in Tozeur (palmeraie, belvedere rocks, camel ride etc)
Mon- Wed: 4WD trip to Ksar Ghilane, Douz, Matmata & Tatouine in the Sahara, sleep in Tozeur on Wed
Thurs: Visit Tamerza and Mides (there seems to be a bus according to LP but is only twice a day and I can't find any timetable online... Anyone have any info? Do they have scooter hires in town? Get the night train back to Tunis at 20.30 (still timetable found on seat61... any more recent info would be appreciated)
Fri: Arrive in Tunis at stupid o'clock, get train to Bizerte (1h). I'd then love to get to Cap Serrat and LP guide says that sometimes the owner of the only hotel mentioned would help people getting there by picking them up... Does he do this from Bizerte or should I get closer? Also, LP speaks very highly of that beach but on Google images it doesn't look as good as, say, Kelibia, anyone has any thoughts on this?
Sat: Cap Serrat
Sun: Leave Cap Serrat in the morning and make our way back to Tunis in order to get our 20.45 plane back to London
I know Tunis could probably deserve more time, but coming from London I'd rather spend more time where there's less people rather than visiting another capital!!
I look forward to your responses!

Your route, believed to be complete, but the southern part, I think you can change most to move up Tataouine Tozeur after you go the same route back to return to Tozeur (tataouine / tozeur).
I recommend you start by Gabes, Gabes to Tunis by train, arrival at Gabes you can join Tataouine Chenini visit, you can spend the night in a cottage troglogyte the next day continue to visit the region ksour toujene, Matmata, and night in the desert.
Wednesday departure to Douz and Tozeur has continued.
Thursday visit the mountain oasis Chbika Tamerza. you can take the same day the bus returned to Tunis e. Overnight in Tunis.
Friday you made your planned program.
