We were DELIGHTED to find Tours by Locals! It allowed us to find the perfect guide. Nourredine was prompt to respond to my requests, professional in all his dealings with us and thorough. He picked us up at our hotel on time and changed our itinerary when we realized we had some options we weren't aware of at first. His knowledge of history, art and religion was impressive. He was also able to get us a brief tour of the Grand Synagogue. We have only compliments for Noureddine. He's the best.

Noureddine was pleasant, very knowledgeable and flexible for our tour. This included changes to the pickup location and a last minute addition to our party. His English was quite good. In his tour of the Bardomuseum, he was able to give context on the pieces and the history behind them. The tour of Carthage and Sid Bou Said was equally informative. He gave a good perspective at the various locations of the influences of the different waves of invades and what they added to the fabric of Tunisia.

We did two days of touring, one in and around Carthage and another in the old city of Tunis. Noureddine is an excellent guide. He is able to convey the historical and cultural context of the sites we visited in a an engaging manner. He was full of great suggestions for restaurants and other things to do. Would definitely recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Hassan for the Great Feedback. It was a pleasure meeting you and your Family.

Noor is exactly what you want in a local guide: smart, knowledgeable, and interested in finding out what you want to see in order to craft a tour that meets your specific needs. He is fluent in several languages, well-known to the locals (who all greeted him, and me, warmly), and street-wise: he made sure we weren't bothered by too many merchants, which is not easy in some parts of Tunis! If you want to get the most out of your visit to this historic city and its art and relics, Noor is the man for you!

We were very pleased with our guide Nourradine who was communicative, timely, responsive, knowledgable and a good guy with good English. Apart from taking us around to the usual sights, we appreciated his extensive and honest insights into various aspects of Tunesian life and society and his recommendations and help with vendors and restaurants. We recommend him without hesitation.

Noureddine Boukari is an excellent tour guide. I cannot recommend him highly enough. His English is excellent, having studied in the USA. He had excellent, in-depth knowledge of Tunis, and loves to show off his country. He asked me what I wanted to emphasize. I said ancient Carthage, Bardo Museum, and Sidi Beau Said. We also went by the American Embassy and the North African-United States WWII Cemetery. Don't think twice. When booking a tour, you won't be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Glenda. It was a pleasure having you as a guest in Tunisia.

Noureddine was an excellent host and guide on a very personal trip to take my mother to visit the grave of her father who was killed during WWII in Tunisia. Noureddine was compassionate, understanding and respectful to what we wanted to do and his empathy was most welcome. I would also like to thank the driver (Ryda?) for his help during the day and for his interest in what we had come to do. Noureddine's suggestion to visit the nearby Berber Village of Takrouna (near Enfidha) was also most welcome.

Noureddine was an excellent guide and host, providing not just a history of the sights but also about Tunisian life in general which gives a much more rounded view of Tunisia. He obviously has a passion for the history of Tunisia and the people who have lived in this part of North Africa across the centuries. There was a lot to take in and see during the tour of Tunis but it was never too rushed and there was no pressure if you wanted to linger longer at some specific place.

My day tour with Noureddine was wonderful. I only had 24 hours in Tunis, and this absolutely made the most of it and made me want to return! Noureddine picked me up from the residence where I stayed, and we went on a wonderful journey through the Medina of Tunis, Bardo Museum, Sidi Bou Said, and several sites of Carthage. I learned so much from his wealth of knowledge, and couldn't have enjoyed the day any more. I very much hope to return to Tunisia for more—thanks Noureddine for such an amazing day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Katelyn It was a pleasure meeting you and having you as guest in Tunisia.

Noureddine was an outstanding guide. I'm an experienced traveler and usually sight-see on my own, but I had a very full day planned and wanted to make the most of my time around Tunis. He was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited (the Bardo, morning market, Tunis Medina, Carthage and Sidi Bou Said) and even gave excellent advice for the rest of my trip to Tunisia in terms of where to visit and stay. He provided great insights into what is happening in Tunisia. Highly recommended!

Noureddine was fantastic. I spent a day with him touring Carthage and Tunis. He tailored the trip to the areas that were of highest interest to me while also recommending stops that were important to the deep and rich history of the area. His knowledge of Tunisinan history spanning 3000+ years was impressive. He treated me to lunch at a small cafe that he dined as a kid (nice touch). His English is very good if you are English speaker and worried about language issues. I would highly recommend.

Noureddine is amazing! He was knowledgeable, flexible, accommodating, polite and friendly. After the first day of our 5 day tour, he understood what I liked and began to tailor the tour to meet my specific needs. He enjoyed conversation and taught me so much about the history and customs of tunisia. There would have been no other way to gain all the information he conveyed. While I was worried beforehand about spending so much time together, it turned out to be a pleasure and a trip I will long remember.

Booked tour as an alternative to the excursions offered by our cruise ship (MSC Splendida) and really glad we did. Booking was easy via the website and a few initial questions were answered very promptly. Noureddine was waiting for us as we embarked the ship and was very helpful and friendly, (as was the driver of our car) and was happy to explain to us not only about the places we were visiting but also about the country as it is now. A very interesting tour. Would recommend.

This was a tour worth every cent. We thoroughly enjoyed it as we were able to see a lot more than the boat Excursions offered for the day. Noureddine is very knowledgeable about his country and his city and it was a real pleasure spending the day with him. He took us to places off the beaten track not frequented by the usual tourist groups. We now know a lot more about Tunisia and will definitely recommend him If you are visiting Tunis.

When we wanted to buy a carpet he changed our plans to take us to Kairouan, to rug markets. Always a good local place to eat. I cannot recommend him enough...he'll make your trip.

Our guide Noureddine was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He also knew the best local places to eat and could take you to places to buy what you wanted, while teaching you how to barter! He was always concerned about whether the pace was too quick or slow. Watched out for our safety when walking on ruins and was flexible on tour when you indicated what you wanted to see. He will make your trip adventurous and safe at the same time and you will eat well and have plenty of water.

Noureddine is the best guide ever!!! He took us to the local market and instructed us how to barter. It came in handy later when we wne tcarpet shopping and when our spouses went back to the market alone while we were at our business conference. His love of his coountry and knoweldge of history was very evident. Frankly, he made the trip for us. We can't recommend him highly enough.

My wife and I did a one day Bardo museum-Carthage-Sidi Bousaid tour with Noureddine. He contacted me at the hotel soon after our booking was made; we arranged to meet nearby, rather than at the usual shipping docks. He was on time, very knowledgeable, spoke perfect English, and very polite. He is also a very cautious driver (rare in Tunisia from what we saw!). We had a very good day and would highly recommend him as a guide in and around Tunis.

Great tour with a friendly host. We saw many of the sites in and around Tunis, and appreciated seeing some of the less touristy areas to get a true feel for Tunisian life. We took this tour as part of our shore visit from our cruise ship, and would highly recommend it. About the same price as the ship's tours, but much more personal service, and saw more. Don't be nervous, book it!

This was a lovely tour with Noureddine. He told me we could adjust the itinerary to suit my preferences, so I did just that and spent more time in places I really liked. He took me to a non-touristy restaurant for lunch which was packed with locals and served delicious (and inexpensive!) Tunisian food. Noureddine's guide services (knowledge of the sites and getting around) were top notch - much better than in the guide sheets I had. I'm very pleased with the tour and guide and recommend both highly.
