First, does anyone know of an inexpensive car rental place in Tunis or Hammamet? The ones I have seen online are outrageous. Second, I rented an apartment in Hammamet and I'm curious if anyone knows of it or has stayed there before. The address of it is khereddine pacha hammamet nord near von hôtel le khalife. Thanks for any info you might have!
I have my last day in Tunis, but my flight will depart from Tunis at 15.35, so can I have a-few-hour visit in Dougga (depart from Tunis by louage then taxt and must come back to Tunis city center around 12.30 before heading to the airport)?
One more question, on my first day, I will arrive Tunis about noon (12.00), so is the rest of the day enough to visit all tourist attractions in Tunis such as medina, museum, etc (not including surburb like carthage or sidi bou said which I plan to go on the next day)?
Thanks for the airport transportation question. Now should I exchange rate at the airport or hotel. Are there better rates currency exchange places in city like in most europe cities? What is there to do in IBIS Tunis Hotel area? Nightlife at hotel? Thanks all.
Hi All, Visiting Tunis for the first time in January. Staying at IBIS Tunis. Any one know if there is an airport shuttle. If not, how much would it cost. This is a short trip so any tips on the locals and scenery. Thanks.

Hello! We've been reading up on this lovely part of the world and are looking into doing the popular Carthage, Sidi Bou Said, Tunis Medina and Bardo Museum in a crazy day.. However, I've noticed that temperatures are already hitting above 40C. We are going in mid-August, which may be hotter. So i am rethinking what would be feasible for us. Our kids are quite used to traveling and sightseeing, but not the heat. Carthage seems to be the attraction to cut out to reduce time outdoors and from what we've read, may be the least interesting for the kids. However, we would really appreciate your input. Is Carthage a site we really shouldn't miss? Is there anything else we should leave out? Or something else we should do instead? Thanks so much!
I have checked on the Spanish Ministry of External Affairs website and there is no mention whatsoever of a need for validity other than it being valid for length of stay. I relied on this info until I have just double checked on other websites where it says all EU travelers need 6 months! I go on holiday 9th June for a week and passport doesn't expire until 19th September. There is no way for me to get a passport now as Spain do not issue same day passports in the UK. Pleeeeeease has someone been on a similar situation? I have emailed the Tunisian embassy in London for confirmation and the Spanish embassy in Tunis but I'm really worried now. Can anyone help me? Will I be allowed entry?
We are arriving at Tunis airport in July and we need a transfer from there to North Hammamet, can anybody tell me the cheapest and most reliable way of doing this. Thanks Val

Hi, I'm a Malaysian living in Egypt. I'm planning to travel alone to Tunis, Kairouan and Sousse in January. With the current situation (demonstrations, civil unrest), is it safe to travel there?
Hi, I am Indian passport holder planning to go on Mediterranean cruise. The cruise is calling at Tunis also. I am not able to arrange visa for Tunis. Am I allowed to do the tour without getting off at Tunis port. Thanks in advance
having a drink in my hotel room is that permitted. I hear that guest have no right to drink alcohol in their room???
from what I read, you cannot get Tunisians dinars outside of Tunis, neither you can take them with you outside the country. I will be coming from France with few euros and many durhams (UAE currency). 1- Should I exchange the UAE durhams to euros here in France, then exchange the euros in Tunis to dinars? Just in case the UAE durhams rate is very poor in Tunis. 2- Should I exchange all my money at the airport? or exchange a little just for the taxi and then exchange the rest in town for a better deal? Thanks
Hi, folks! I'm having a tour in Tunisia at the end of aug 2010,and I intend to re-scedule a bit two days we have more-less free (the rest is organized and fully packed). We have a whole day to spend in Hammamet and I prefere to visit Sousse. Few days later we'll get to Sousse and spend all day there, but I'd like to use it to see Sfax and Mahdia. I read in guide that they're worth visiting and Sousse is closest to them,later we won't have a chance. I have few questions about that: 1. Is it worth all trouble , as it seems according to guide? 2. Can we visit Sfax and Mahdia in one day,(is there enough time to travel and visit of maybe just to go to Sfax? 3. Which way of transportation would be the best for trips Hammamet-Sousse and Sousse-Sfax-Mahdia? It doesn't have to be cheapest but I'd not pay any price... Can I get some advice about it please? Thanks all Mirko
What are the best hotels in Tunis?
Can anyone tell me a) how far it is from where the airport bus arrives in 'downtown' Tunis to the railway station? b) houw far it is from where the airport bus arrives in 'downtown' Tunis to where the Metro starts? c) how far it is from the Tunis stop of the Metro to where the louages go to Teboursouk/Dougga? I think there are a couple of louage stations in Tunis....... I would try and work it out for myself but I have exhausted the possibilities on the internet, and am going round in circles and my copy of Rough Guide to Tunisia seems to have been lost in the post. Many thanks for any assistance.

Can anyone tell me how far it is from Tunis to Dougga?
We are planning a holiday to either Yasmine Hammamet or Port El Katataoui. However I've been reading up about the local food and it looks as though we may have problems with our daughter, who is allergic to milk, nuts, fish (including seafood) and lamb!! Will she have to live on dry bread all week, or is there a local dish that contains none of the above that we can ask for?

Hi, I'm thinking of staying at Hôtel Vincci Lella Baya in Hammamet-Yasmine during my Xmas vacation in Tunisia. Does anyone if it is easy to travel from there to Tunis and other places? Many thanks in advance.
I'll be in Tunis next week for a EuroMed meeting. The hotel will be very comfortable but I fancy escaping one evening to eat somewhere else. Can anyone recommend a restaurant in Tunis?
I've been reading through the threads and have gotten some great information, so thanks to all those who have asked and answered before. We'll be on a cruise, in port from 8:30 to 4:00 in late April. It will be myself and two children (girl 15, boy 11) who are very interested in history and culture. I have minimal knowledge of Arabic, currently taking a course two hours a week. The children want to see Carthage and the Medina, and eat "real" Tunisian food. They're not picky eaters, and adapt well to new environments. Would it be better to hire a private tour operator before arriving in Tunis? Any recommendations for one? I've read people find taxi drivers at port to take them around, but am curious as to what the going rate for a trip to Carthage then back into old city would be. For those experienced travelers and residents, which would be the better choice for a woman with her two children-tour or taxi/on our own? We're not interested in doing much shopping, or doing the ship's tour. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
