Tour: Tunis - Medina - Bardo - Cartha,..., Tunis, Tunisia
Date: Aug 3, 2012

Taha was a very knowledgeable and experienced guide who gave us a great introduction to Tunis and the Medina, the Bardo, Carthage and Sidi Bou Said. We have 2 concerns: we were told we would be picked up at the ship, which is important since I am on crutches. When we got to where other guides were meeting, we found that we had to walk .25 mile to the port gate to get to Taha. Also, whenever we were in the car, Taha gave speeches on the political situation in Tunis, which became repetitive over six hours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Borkowski, Thanks very much much for your testimonial. I hope you enjoyed your tour with us.I tried my best to introduce you to our sight-seeings and attractions in Tunis,engaged our driver and AC/transportation to be as flexible as we we can to move in all sites.Political comments are related to questions you asked me during our trip so I feel sorry for being repetitive as you mentioned.I hope though ,you appreciate the quality of provided services. Thanks

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We have contacted Taha and further clarified the exact meeting location. Port restrictions make it impossible for non cruise ship sponsored guides to enter the port territory. Therefore it is necessary to walk a short distance to the exit of the port.
