UNESCO Sites Tour in Tunisia
UNESCO Sites Tour in Tunisia is part of our EBRD funded project in Tunisia. The idea is to facilitate B2B connections between Tunisian travel trade with the foreign ones. Our main focus has been over a year now to develop tourism of the Societe Essayaha properties which includes f.ex. Golf Carthage, the oldest golf course in Tunisia. A side of this development we have gathered some tours and itineraries into the Product Manual of Tunisia 2019 to introduce both FIT and group travel packages. One of those tours is UNESCO Sites Tour in Tunisia, 9-night, 10-day tour combining all 8 locations of UNESCO World Cultural or Natural Heritage sites. You are able to copy this programme to your own production if interested. If you need more information, please send your email to: office(at)toolboxtravel.fi. You can order also your free copy of the Product Manual 2019 of Tunisia from there.
