Tour Reviews
  • Regine

    We had a tour in the whole Tunisia with Hammed and he was very flexible and polite. He did the journey as we planned. He was also always on time. When we had an historical place, he contract other especilized guide, point that make the tour enlighted in information and really liked the guide that He contract. He also recommend some hotels and restaurants that we really liked and He tryed to get  a better price. We really recommend him.

     Something that should be improved is his english. Sometimes we feel that he would like to contribute with more information, but because of the lack of vocabulary he couldn't  express himself completely.

    Our group of 4 spent a very nice day with Ahmed in the Tunis area.  Amhed showed up on time with a larger vehicle as I requested at the cruise port.  He greated us with boxes of local cakes and cookies whcih we enjoyed for many days after our tour concluded.  We visited Sidi Bou Said, Carthage and Tunis.  We arrived in Sidi Bou Said in the early morning and the streets were almost empty.  We loved the walk through the city enhoying the views and and the buildings.  We ended our visited with a wonderful cup of coffee.  Our next stop was Carthage were we visited the Roman baths and the ampitheatre.  Our last stop was in Tunis and walk through the Medina and lunch at a local restaurant.  Ahmed provided us with lots of information and history about the areas we visited.  It was our first visit to the area and we Thanks Ahmed for a wonderful and memorable day.

    Hamdi is a perfect ambassador for his country. We spent 2 very enjoyable days together. He guided me to an exceptional restaurant and was patient with my various demands and requests. You will be in very good hands with this truly lovely kind man.

  • Steffanie

    My close friend and I had a phenomenal tour day with Hamdi recently while visiting the Tunis area. We hired Hamdi for the day, and was impressed from the moment he picked us up.  From small details to ensure we always had enough water and snacks to sharing his great knowledge of Tunis/surrounding area, Hamdi excelled as a tour guide throughout the day. He clearly cares deeply to ensure his clients are having a great experience and learning about the local culture, but also continously safe (and comfortable in the Tunisia heat - e.g., good AC, cold water always read, etc). 

    If Hamdi had been free for additional days, we would have hired him again. He is a rare find (I had other tour guides during my stay, and Hamdi clearly stood out as exceptional). Thank you, Hamdi, for a fantastic experience and your above & beyond customer service!

  • George

    My wife, son and I recently returned from a trip to Tunisia.  We hired Ahmed as our guide for two days and for airport transfers.  Ahmed is very consciencious,  punctual, and knowledgabeable.  He was early for all meetings, well prepared for the days activities, flexible, friendly and eager to please.  I would not hesitate to recommend him to others and would use him again if ever in Tunis.

  • mohammad

    To be honest, hamdi Ahmed is the best experience you can get while visiting Tunisia, certainly I will recommend him for my friend and family, we completed all the monuments and attractions for our visit, we even went to more cities and places while we have the time, he is friendly and punctual in time. He is knowledgeable and informative and when you ask him for anything he will be positive.. for sure I will recommend hamdi 

  • Balaji

    Mr. Hamdi is an excellent tour guide. He may not be a certified guide, that's in no way lessened our experience.  We thoroughly enjoyed our tours in Tunisia with him.

    Mr. Hamdi is professional, isfriendly, is knowledgeable about tourist attractions and traps. He organised for us custom tours: 1 day El Jem and Kairouan and accommodated our requests for unscheduled stops, helped with shopping in souqs.

    The next day we visited Tunis for half a day and he dropped us at airport. He gave us good tips on how to go about in Medina and guides us through Bardo museum.

    Unlike guides I've met he is kind enough to offer snacks, water, and dates.  At Kairouan he arranged simple, but tasty sandwich for lunch.

    I wish we spent more time in Tunisia with Mr Hamdi as our guide.

  • Chandramouli

    What wonderful two days in Tunis!!!! Thanks a million to Mr. Hamdi Ahmed, I had a wonderful trip to Tunis. Mr. Hamdi was very punctual, adjusting and took care of my sight seeing requirements professionally. He was waiting for me at the airport on arrival and took me immediately on a sightseeing trip. The first day we covered, Carthage, Medina, Mosque, Siddi Bousaid (Santorini of Tunis), Aquaduct, the famous street etc. He was with me almost until 8 pm. Nextday we left early (5:45 am) to visit Kairaouan -El jem and on the way hammamet. He dropped me at the airport on time to catch my flight. The whole 2 days were very pleasant and was able to cover lot of ground thanks to Mr. Hamdi. I will highly recommend him any traveller trying to Explore Tunisia.

    Ahmed Hamdi was our guide on a two-day, overnight trip to Testour, Dougga, El Kef, and El Djem. His commentaries and observations, both historical and contemporary, were informative and perceptive, while not at all scripted or rehearsed. Rather, they grew out of the moment, so they were more valuable. Our itinerary included important things that we wanted to see and do - and Ahmed had arranged for very knowledgeable professionals to talk to us at each place. At the same time, when we had last-minute requests he was always flexible and accommodated us. Very importantly, Ahmed has a warm, engaging personality, always upbeat and enthusiastic, and we felt very quickly that we were travelling not with a guide but with a friend. We recommend him enthusiastically.

  • Orlin

    My husband and I visited Tunisia (and the African continent respectively) for the first time. We are frequent travellers and enjoy exploring interesting places, learn about different cultures and meet with new people.  Our trip to Tunisia was not too long (only a week), so  we booked a day trip to the capital Tunis.  Hamdi Ahmed was an excellent guide, who made us feel welcome. He provided us with lots of informarion about the Tunusian culture and  the day to day life. He was very flexible with the timing during the day and did above and beyond to fulfil our requests. He is a very polite, punctual and respectful person.

    I highly recommend him as a tour guide. Hopefully we will meet again in the near future.

    I booked a tour with a very short notice in Tunis, Sidi Bou Said , Carthage and other famous places around the capital. Despite the short time Mr. Hamdi managed to organize and coordinate everything for a full day trip around the capital city. He picked me up from the hotel in Hammamet and made sure I could see as many as possible interesting places a tourist could see for a day trip. He is very punctual, knowledgeable  and organized tour guide.  He is very pationate about the local history and culture and a great ambassador of his country.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who would like to explore Tunisia with a private guide. I will definitely plan a trip with him to the desert in the future.

    I would like to thank to Mr Hamdi for taking us from the airport and giving a city tour before transferring to hotel. Even though we just agreed on Sahara tour, he took us from the airport with flowers and give a warm tunusian welcome before everything has started. Excellent English and flexible to change plans as we wished. We are really excited about Sahara tour in coming two days. 

  • Rabab

    Mr. Ahmed Hamdi is an excellent tour guide, super friendly, polite and generous with a lot of knowledge. He made sure that I had a great time showing me around all the beautiful sights of Tunis and even took me to more places such as the Marsa that were not  originally in the  itinerary. I highly recommend Mr.Hamdi for future visitors and tourists. He really is the best. He made sure that I was very confortable and that we visited all the places that I wanted. 

  • Danielle

    I spent a truly wonderful full day (0900-1830hrs) with Mr Ahmed Hamdi, touring ancient buildings, monuments, mosques and little known side streets in the charming, interior, historical town of Khairoun and the bustling coastal city of Sousse.  Mr Ahmed Hamdi's personality and style is a delightful combination of politesse/protocol and genuine warmth, showing pride and enthusiasm in sharing the history of his country. He is also highly perceptive and accommodating, quickly understanding what  interested me most (history/arts/culture/people) and adapting the tour along the way according to my every need or desire.. Mr Hamdi is a wonderful ambassador for Tunisia. I have already planned three further tours with him, including to the desert which he is obviously an expert in and highly passionate about. Sincere thanks for this very informative, enjoyable and flexible introduction to Tunisia beyond Tunis. It was a privilege to spend time with such an honest and genuine character.

  • Evita

    Hamdi was lovely and he took care of me and my friend while at the tour. He was willing to show us more things that we had payed for. It would have been great if he could share with us more historic type of information but overall it was an enjoyable tour. 

  • Kristine

    We are currently on tour with Hamdi and are very much enjoying our time in Tunisia. Hamdi is very professional and greeted us at the airport with Tunisian cakes and flowers. So sweet! His car is reliable and he has been on time and very flexible with our many requests. We have had many delicious meals with him and he has provided us with a locals perspective of Tunisia! 

  • Patrizia

    Very good experience with Mr. Hamdi around Tunisia: he is a fair, competent and kind man that was able to take us in our tour around Tunisia from the beginning to the end. Desert experience designed for us was perfect, with quad and camels, and nights spent in Matmata and Zmila Camp site. The historical part of the tour was appreciated very much, too. I advice Mr. Hamdi to everyone wants to come to Tunisia and have a excellent overview of the country and the kindness of Tunisian people

  • Brent

    My partner and myself had a fantastic full day tour of Tunis and the sites of Carthage, Sidi Bou Said, La Marsa, The Bardo Museum as well as some other hidden gems in the Souk. Mr Hamdi picked us up in his lovely car at our hotel all the way in Gamarth and proceeded to provide a very relaxed and interestng tour of the sites mentioned.

    He has a good knowledge of the history of Tunis and a real passion for providing a thorough and positive insight into Tunisian culture. He is extremely kind and flexible to accomodating the needs of his guests and it was a pleasure to spend the time we did with him. 

    We very much look forwards to seeing him again in the future, hopefully for one of his amazing desert tours he told us about.

    Our family just spent a terrific week travelling through Tunisia with Mr. Ahmed Hamdi.  We explored Tunis, Carthage and Sid Bou Said.  We then traveled to Kairaouan for a night and then to the Sahara desert in the south.  It was a great experience. We rode camels, rode quad bikes, had dinner and slept in the tent.  His guide friend, Mr. Ahmed, was also great and took us to the desert.  We saw the underground homes in Matamada, the troglodytes and made a stop at oasis on the way.  As Mr. Hamdi is from thesouth, he was able to share much about Bedouin life.  We then went to Sousse, Hammamet and on our last day went to his home where his wife and daughter made us a delicious Tunisian dinner.  IT was an experience we will never forget.  The entire trip he was friendly, cared about our family and wanted to make sure we had a great time.  He is proud of his country, which he should be as it is a beautiful place with incredibly friendly people.  He has the nicest family and is so proud of them.  We felt like family from the moment we met him.  We have traveled the world and spent time with many guides and he is the best.  His English is good, especially for Tunisia where English is not widely spoken.  I should also mention that he served as a vacation planned and planned out entire trip but was very flexible with any changes we requested, including spur of the moment.  


    we found through ur trip to Yunisia, the sincerity, kidness, hospitality and freindship. Hamdi was so kind that in no time we treated each others as frends rather than just business relationship.
