Discover Tunisia
I enjoy experiencing history, cultures, and geography different from ours. Indus Travels did an excellent job planning unusual and exciting things in Tunisia. The tour was 5 stars all the way. The hotel accommodations were comfortable and clean. It was especially exciting to taste authentic food from each area. The sites we toured were spectacular... the coliseum, the hike between native villages, the camel ride into the Sahara to the Bedouin camp, shopping in the medina, and of course the freshly grilled lamb at the roadside café!
