What people are saying about Djerba

An all-round successful and fascinating tour from the island of Djerba to the mainland of Tunisia. Incredibly informative, you get to know the life of the Berber people with their eventful history up close. The town of Tataouine and its bustling market is very different from the tourist-oriented souks of Medoun and Houmt Souk. The highlight of the tour is the visit to the Berber settlement of Chenini. A great local guide explains the eventful history of these settlements in a very informative and entertaining way with his own charm. Here's a big thank you! An included local lunch completes the visit to Chenini. The return trip led back to the hotel via other historically interesting places! Highly recommended, from processing to implementation. Our first tour via the app from this provider. Any time! That was not the last booking.

A very nice and atmospheric tour with a pirate ship. The animation was very successful, there was good music and a great atmosphere on the ship. There was a show, dolphin watching in the sea, swimming and sunbathing on Flamingo Island before dinner, horseback riding and quad biking (extra charge). The food was also very tasty, you could choose between chicken and fish. After the meal there was entertainment again, which was coordinated for each language, including German for me. (Was the only German :D) and back on the ship, the return trip was enjoyed to the fullest, celebrated and danced. It was exactly as described and would book the tour again at any time, just great. Kudos to the crew :) (I didn't see any flamingos on the island, but at the port where the ship departed)

I took this tour with my 7-year old son and we had an amazing time. The guide and the driver were extremely nice and very knowledgeable. The places we visited were very beautiful and interesting and the activities exciting (we did quad biking, camel rides and swam in a warm-water source). We felt our trip benefited locals in many ways, notably because the guide took us to visit truly local houses so our tips - always taken gracefully and never imposed - went to people who were out of the tourist route. The night in a tent was very special as was the desert camp more generally, surrounded by beautiful sand dunes. We had such a great time that we will surely be back with the whole family as soon as we can. Many thanks to the team for such a beautiful and special experience!

This experience is definitely worth it and more than enough to see everything other than Djerba if you are on the island! Sleeping in the desert, seeing Tunisian villages, meeting locals... In addition, the guide was very good, and the driver too.

Superb 4x4 excursion not to be missed! Our guide Momo was great and very personable. Very good value for money, I recommend.
