What people are saying about Houmt Souk

Had a nice and educational day around the island thanks to Monji the driver and guide Moana. Highlights of the day were Djerbahood with colorful graffitis, decorated entrance doors, cafes, and artist run small stores, and Houmt Souk. Note the main synagogue is closed on Saturdays.

Great tour to recommend

In retrospect I would recommend a full day tour, you can see everything but we would have liked to have had more time in some places. Super nice tour guide who gives a good insight into the culture and has lots of tips, for example when dawdling on the market.

The tour guide was very patient and knowledgeable. His English was excellent, and both he and the driver were very personable. He gave us an excellent recommendation for dinner too. I would highly recommend.

Very friendly and local guide as well as the driver gave you an insight into the island that we would never have gotten on our own, highly recommended!

Both the owner of Depart Travel Services and our guide for the day were amazing! We learned so much and had a GREAT time!
