Tataouine & Chenini: Full-Day Guided Tour

1. Tataouine & Chenini: Full-Day Guided Tour

In the morning, you will be picked up by your friendly driver in the comfort of your accommodation. After a short meet and greet, you will set-off to discover the wonders of Southern Tunisia.  Start your journey by leaving the island of Djerba, travelling down an old Roman road and taking stunning holiday pictures of Chahbania along the way. Continue to Tataouine, the city that gave its name to the planet "Taooine" in the Star Wars Saga, and enjoy some free time to walk in the market - a great place to refine your haggling skills.  Continue on your tour toward Chenini, the berber village overlooking the mountain and stay for about an hour with your local guide. This guide will be pleased to introduce you to the various components of the village: the oil mill, the mosque, houses carved into the walls of the mountains and the attic and much more. After this introduction you'll get to feast on a delicious meal consisting of local food. From here, continue to Ksar Hadada, where some scenes from the Star Wars movie "The Phantom Menace" were shot. To round off your fantastic day, head back to Djerba in an air-conditioned vehicle.

Very good trip. We saw salted lake which is very impressive. We had some free time in Tataouine to buy local goods. Chenini is worth to see for everyone who likes history. Lunch was very tasty. Guide very friendly. Unfortunatelly Ksar Hadada was closed, so we missed that. Anyway I fully recommend.

beautiful visits; meeting schedule at the hotel perfectly respected. Smiling, competent and available driver and guide
