Tunisia: History, Culture, People & Palaces
10 days / 9 nights
Land only per person (based on double occupancy) May 8-17, 2017
Among the world’s newest democracy is Tunisia…where the media-dubbed “Arab Spring” began, in January 2011. While the other countries that were inspired by Tunisia have seen their countries fall apart in chaos, or worse, Tunisia’s parliament completed their new Constitution in December 2014 and subsequently held free and transparent elections in what has been a rather peaceful transition to democracy.
Tunisia’s relationship with the United States dates back more than 200 years and today, the U.S. sees Tunisia as an important ally in fighting extremist, Islamic terrorism.
This very special tour will allow participants to see some of the wonderful archaeological ruins, attend a once-a-year festival of celebration that brings together Muslims and Jews on the island of Jerba, dine at some of the country’s top restaurants, stay in 5* resorts, a restored palace in the Kasbah of Tunis and most importantly, meet Tunisians!
Space is limited on this deluxe tour, but priced to provide excellent value and the passion of the tour itinerary’s designer, 7 time Conde Nast Traveler magazine’s “Top Travel Specialist” for Tunisia…Gil Travel’s own, Jerry Sorkin.

|Tunis||Movenpick Tunis||The Mövenpick Hotel Gammarth Tunis is a unique and modern location for guests who value perfection. Located in an exclusive residential area, this hotel overlooks the beautiful bays of the Mediterranean and the hills of Sidi Bou Said.|
|Jerba||Hasdrubal Thalasso & Spa||One of Tunisia’s best managed hotels, the Hasdrubal Thalassa is also a nice change of pace from Jerba’s many very large hotels. The Hasdrubal Thalassa is architecturally very attractive, with very nice landscaping. Nice rooms and a very nice restaurant.|
|Tunis||Palais Bayram||Formerly residence of the Grand Mufti of the Kingdom of Tunisia, it was called the Regency of Tunis, the palace dating from the 18th century is beautifully situated in the heart of the oldest part of the medina of Tunis.|
