Tunisia - August 2008 Help Please!

Jump to last reply

Greetings.

I am trying to plan a trip to Tunisia with 2 major questions:

(1) how to get there
(2) how to get around the country

(1) How to Get there.

I am traveling with 1 other person in the last 2 weeks of August. We are trying to get to Tunis -- but want to know the least expensive way to get there.

Flights from the US are at best $1,600 and even taking the boat (SCNM) from Marselle is $700pp --- in addition to a trip to/through France.

Any ideas for how to travel from the East Coast (LGA or BOS) creatively?

(2) How to get around Tunisia.

Should we plan to hire a car and driver? Is a rental car a safe option?

Should we arrange for UNESCO site guides beforehand or once in country?

Also, what is the best way to travel from Tunis to Djerba?


My apologies for so many questions -- I am grateful for any help!!
