Full description
Get picked up from your accommodation by your professional driver and English-speaking guide and head to Kairouan. Explore the city and learn firsthand about the history of the first Muslim metropolis in the Maghreb. Begin your visit with a stop at the Aghlabid Basins, an extraordinary feat of medieval-era engineering which continue to provide water to the area's desert inhabitants. Then head to the mausoleum of Sidi Sahbi, the most revered holy man in Kairouan, where blessings are obtained for all regional weddings and festivals. Continue on to Kairouan's great mosque. Admire the architectural precision of the structure which serves as the fourth most important mosque in the Sunni Muslim world.  Afterwards, get lost in the city's old medina, classified a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Make a final stop at Bir Barrouta, a legendary well where you can observe a dromedary extracting water from deep beneath the earth.
