Explore Mos Espa and the Lars Homestead with your private tour guide


Let's increase Starwar's fascination by visiting the Tunisian desert where filming locations and sets are since 1976, around Tozeur, Nefta, and Matmata. Over there the Starwars Saga was really born.

During this particular tour you would probably realize that Mos Espa is not the only reminder of the movie in the premises, but also the whole environment around, including the traditional male Jedi costume called "Bournous", the anatomy of dromedaries, places, names (Chebika , Tataoine etc . . . . ) turn out to be hidden secrets.

How if you revisit StarWars with me in a different way: Explore the well preserved Mos Espa, The Yardang Square nearby, the Sand dunes, Salt lakes and visit the inner pit of the Lars Homestead at Hotel Sidi Driss in Matmata after seeing the outer view 300 KM to the west where a stunning an igloo-shaped set stands for the entrance. By the end of this almost travel in space, your admiration for Starwars and hopefully for Tunisia will increase.
