Have you done the hop?
In Tunisia you can hop on a camel or haggle in an ancient medina. It’s a great insight into life in North Africa. Like any country holidaymakers can suffer with a range good and bad experiences. Complaints that we receive involve harassment, along with assault and inappropriate behaviour. We also receive complaints about hotel standards, hygiene, food and water quality, the state of swimming pools, sewage smells, poor plumbing, and of course the range of illness experienced on these holidays, such as Salmonella, Shigella, Cryptosporidium, serious gastric problems and Norovirus.
The articles below should guide you on the risks of travelling to Tunisia. If you are returning and have been affected by sickness, illness, assaults or any other holiday issues, please contact us.
