Arts and Crafts tour in Tunis

Looking for a comprehensive private tour in Tunis that will highlight the most fascinating aspects of this rich and diverse city? With me as your private guide you will enjoy a whole day of exploring two distinct sides of the capital as we’ll go through both the old and the new parts of the city and savor the remarkable contrast between these two extremes. Some people may think that these are two opposite sides that cannot exist side by side. But as you explore Tunis with me you will clearly see that there’s nothing strange about combining old Muslim traditions and culture with the contemporary influences of a globalized world. 
The first part of the day will have us exploring Medina – the traditional old part of the city characteristic for many North African cities. This is where the concentration of various Islamic sites is very high, and also the place for many traditional craftsmen doing their work. The center of the district is traditionally occupied by a mosque, surrounded by numerous Islamic schools and workshops of the craftiest professions (jewelers, tailors, perfumers and such). The outer parts of this geographic circle are occupied by tiny streets, loud sellers and lots of people trying to get past each other – the typical image of an Arab city you will see in a Western movie.
After submerging deep into the traditional part of Tunis, we’ll go straight to the new part of the city with its clean markets, fancy office buildings and shopping streets, which are so typical for just any developed city around the world. You will see the true face of modern Tunis and the secret behind its economic efficiency, which is known for its diversity and dynamic attitude. The contrast with the Medina district will be so sharp that you won’t even believe that it’s the same city! Yet, this is Tunis, and you will certainly love it!
