A fully-escorted tour created for those with a fascination for archaeology and ancient history will take participants next February 21st on a 19-nights "experience of a lifetime" through Tunisia… the fabled Jewel of North Africa.
Legendary Carthage, the superb Roman sites of Dougga, Bulla Regia, Sbeitla and El Jem, the walled city of Kairouan and the mountain oasis of Tamerza are just some of the captivating places to be visited, others including the Troglodyte dwellings of Matmata where Star Wars was filmed, the dried salt lake of Chott el Jerid – and the island of Djerba, so-called since the time of Ulysses as "The Land of Milk and Honey."
There's an opportunity to walk the same waterfront streets as Hannibal the Great, see a plantation of an extraordinary 300,000 date palms, enormous olive groves, villages created in a honeycomb cliff-face whose "streets" are simply ledges too narrow for two people to pass, abandoned centuries-old villages, great mosques, desert communities and ancient fortifications.
This unique package is priced from $6190pp twin-share ex-Sydney including breakfasts and dinners daily, 4- and 5-star hotels and daily guided sight-seeing; air taxes and fuel surcharges (currently approx $480pp) are extra.
Experienced Middle East and North Africa traveller, Joanna Quinn who is recognised for her wide-knowledge of the region's archaeology and ancient history will escort the group; for a detailed brochure phone International Destinations on 1800 044 519 or visit
