Carthage Tours information
Tours of Tunis can easily be arranged at the coastal resorts, but are difficult to set up within the city. However, if you want to go on a tour encompassing the medina, Bardo Museum, Carthage and Sidi Bou Saïd (a daunting amount for one day so you might want to choose just two of these), contact Carthage Tours, which can arrange a private car with guide for four people. It also arranges a three-day tour to the Sahara, but be warned that this will entail a long drive there and back.
