Our tour included a trip to Carthage and Sidi Bou Said. Noureddine - knows what areas to go to at the heritage sites which allowed us to take some wonderful photos but also the tour helps tell the "story" of the site and it's history. Nour's knowledge of archaeology and Tunisia is amazing, we were astounding at all the facts and dates he seems to remember effortlessly but also his great knack to relay the information in a way that is impactful and makes sense. We couldn't have asked for a better guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Louise. It has been a pleasure guiding you in my country. And I hope to having you again as a guest in Tunisia.

The excursion to Dougga was perhaps our favourite part of our trip to Tunisia and it was made that much better by having spending the day with Noureddine and understanding the extent of the UNESCO heritage site. Not only did Nour provide a wonderful narrative of the site and the original use of the rooms and areas, but in some cases he acted out how it would have looked to move from room to room within what remains of the old town. The tour and guide were exceptional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks louise for the feedback . Much appreciated

We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide and were fortunate to have 3 excursions with Noureddine. His knowledge of the history of Tunisia is astounding and we learned about the country with not only facts and information but identifying the linkage to that history at the sites. We started our day at Kairaouan to explore the mosque and the neighbouring town and then set off for El Jem. It was quite an experience to be sitting in the world's second largest colosseum!
Nour is terrific and made our tour a fascinating and enjoyable experience. He designed the itinerary with differing activities, rather than 'back to back' ancient ruins that can get dull for kids. So we watched flamingos in a lagoon, went to a pottery workshop and caught sunset overlooking the Gulf of Tunis, as well as visiting Kelibia Fortress, Kerkuoane Punic village and the hot springs at Korbous. And the fish restaurant he recommended at Cap Bon had views and food to die for! Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Catherine for the lovely feedback. It has been a pleasure having you and your family as a guest in Tunisia. Wishing you all the best.

We booked two tours with Noureddine - one of Tunis/Carthage and another of Kairouan/El Jem. Both were fantastic! He was really knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Tunisian history from the Punic period all the way to present day. He always had interesting stories and things to share about each of the sites we saw. Having a guide made a huge difference to how much we enjoyed the trip and we would highly recommend Nour to anyone looking for a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mandy for the lovely feedback. It has been a pleasure meeting you and having you as a guest in Tunisia.

Noureddine is a fantastic person who was helpful, kind, informative, very knowledgeable, patient and well spoken. Not only did he show us the best of Tunis but he even helped us shop for groceries and then carry them home. A fabulous man. Thanks to you and him for making our time so enjoyable. Sam & Cheryl
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sam ,cheryl , the pleasure is mine. A big Thank you for visiting my country. Wish you all the best
Our second day with Noor was excellent. We saw the harbour built during the time of Carthage, the Roman ruins, and the blue village that is the artist colony where we had a wonderful lunch. We then went to the museum. WOW We have been to many Roman sites but the Roman mosaics in this museum were spectacular, as were the other artifacts. All said, it was a great day and Noor made our time in Tunisia very special. We would highly recommend him. Many many thanks!
My husband and I booked 2 days of tours with Noor in Tunisia. As arranged he met us at the airport and drove us to Duogga on the 1st day. It was a over an hour drive but we were never bored, Noor shared a lot of information about the country in general, not just the history but the current situation too. We were overwhelmed with Dougga, it was wonderful and Noor brought it life. He was amazing, good driver, excellent historian and very enjoyable to spend time with. Many many thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure having you as a guest in Tunisia

Our tour with Noureddine was outstanding! His knowledge of Tunisian history while showing us The different archeology sites made our first visit to this country very enjoyable. We customized the day as he drove us around, eating at a local restaurant, helping us find Tunisian wine, to giving us helpful advice. He even gave us his contact in case we had any questions or needed help. He is the personal tour guide you want when visiting this beautiful country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It has a been a pleasure guiding you and having you as a guest in Tunisia. All the best to you and your family
Noureddine provided an excellent service, accommodating our busy schedule over 2 days with aplomb. He knows his stats, dates, etc, and and is able to converse on many topics.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mark& Lynda . It has been an absolute pleasure having you as a guest In Tunisia . Take care and all the best

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.
Robert O'BrienUnited States
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!
Margaret FaulkUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Peter it was a pleasure meeting you. Kind regards.
Glenda H.United States
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.
Niall CampbellUnited Kingdom
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Niall for the Feedback. It was a pleasure meeting you
Niall CampbellUnited Kingdom
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Niall . It was a pleasure having you as a guest with your family in Tunisia .
Katelyn Ellis-HillUnited States
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.

Loren W.United States
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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure meeting you Loren !!
Benjamin JagoeUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Benjamin it was a pleasure meeting you.
Stephen BoushUnited States
Nour was fantastic. All went smoothly to see all the sights requested and excellent discussion and detail about Tunisia along the way. He is truly dedicated to serving his customer's needs and requests and accommodated all with graciousness and patience. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Stephen for the feedback. It was a pleasure meeting you.
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elaine. It was nice having in as a guest in Tunisia. Wish you all the best
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks bradely . It was nice meeting you.
Jim met us as agreed and we had an excellent tour. He was very knowledgeable and filled us with more information than we shall ever remember. He suggested a nice lunch place and the whole tour ran at our speed, which is a pleasure when you are over 80. It was one of our dreams to see a bit of Tunisia and we did it in style.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Robert. It was nice having you in Tunisia. Wish you all the best. Regards
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: When asked who Jim was, Noureddine advised us that during the tour Robert was struggling to remember his name so he told the customer to call him Jim.
