Was in Tunisia and as many of you are faced with a terrible attitude to people of Russian origin! At the reception greeted by barking and throwing passports! Settled in the barn for the animals) Yes, and then look at the reaction and colonize in normal room! Really! We are after to have seen other tourists) the same script) the Food was tasteless, no service, no, all very poor.In the country there is nothing interesting, all trying to grab more money. Everyone questioned whether they are still in Tunisia? And all with one voice asserted "NEVER"! And I fully agree with them! ...
What kind of tales you write, "shed for animals". All published in this topic posts from "guests" are very similar to each other and some black PR against the tourism of the country. If all true, then register, describe your story in detail, add photos, and all this kind of nonsense, not similar to Tunisia. I though there was a long time ago, but anything similar did not face. But even if you have had some negative experiences,this does not mean that the whole country and all the people are bad. ...
Was there five years ago, and this year, not impressed at all. Became much worse. The service is very spoiled. In dirty hotels, and beaches. Staff treated with contempt. It would be better to fly to Spain. ...
And I went to Tunisia this year for the second time. Last year was on the island of Djerba, this year in Hammamet. Both times very much! If last year enjoyed the beauty of the island, the service and hospitality of the hotel, this time came to Hammamet, budget three. Yes, the hotel is different from the 4 and 5 key but we deliberately chose this hotel. What a wonderful tour, beautiful sea, clean beach. The attitude towards us, Russian is very friendly. All the Tunisians we smile and say how like Russian. I'm surprised reading previous reviews. Do not know can be due to the fact that we were friendly disposed, and therefore to us as the same...the Animators of the hotel was very upset when we left, helped us with our Luggage, took photos for memory, some left their contacts. No one touched, not abused, was not theft. The guests loved it!!! ...
All kind time of day!
Went this year in August.
Liked it very much. Yes, there are disadvantages. But tell me, where doesn't?! If you look for only the negatives, they can gather a whole bunch in any country.
What of the downsides? Garbage. Yes, he's everywhere. But it doesn't smell bad, as some write, it is scattered with plastic bottles, bags, paper. Here, however, and all the disadvantages.
As for the local population. So blame yourself. How You feel about them, and they to You. The backlash has not been canceled. So want to have You warmly and friendly greeted, be nice to them. Tunisians are hospitable, welcoming and friendly. There was not a single case of even evil and look in our direction. So, as the saying goes: "If face is crooked...." Read Krylov. Moreover, quite interesting to talk to. I will say a few greetings in their language, and they simply melt away, ready to help You with everything.
Everywhere you can meet the police, so security don't worry.
What to see in the country? There are a couple of good excursions:
1. Day trips to Carthage, Sidi Bou said, Tunis (the capital);
2. Two days into the Sahara, the Colosseum, Kairouan, an oasis of Chebika, salt marshes.
I recommend very beautiful pictures are obtained, and the information informative.
So, friends, do not look for the negative, that is enough in our hard life in Russia. Rest with pleasure and bring only positive emotions.
Good luck! ...
Stay in principle bad can not be, and to learn something new is also very круто0 ...

But there is more than just not going. In Russian they understand when you want to. ...
Hi all! Vacationing in Tunisia in Hammamet in September this year,the 4 star hotel Mirage.Think the rest will get what he wants.Settled immediately upon arrival without regard to the country,the staff is very friendly,all smiles,tried to talk,I ask how are you,like here or not.Was on 2 day trips in the Sahara.That's impressive.Drove almost throughout Tunisia,was a great guide,learned a lot.About the dirt guide also made explanations-the country is beginning to live again.By the way,yesterday went on the train to Paveletsky station.So on the way we saw so many abandoned debris that Tunisia never dreamed of.Take a look around,we, too, not all smooth and clean.And Tunisia the beautiful sea,the Sahara,with clean hotels and ordinary people,who also earn money in any way they can:sell,clean ,cook in hotels.By the way,the food was tasty and varied.A lot of fruit. ...
Dear fellow citizens, always you will be treated the way you deserve))) Arrived in Tunisia alone, I went to the Gare de Tunis (railway station), and when I realized that at 8 PM in Sousse I can't go back (though I do not understand why), went on Stasen de luazh (on the bus) where just over 10 dinars very quickly left, got in 2 hours)) Roam on any streets, at any time and many people come to chat, say like Russia, constantly shouting "Russia" "Moscow" Saint-Petersburg" and the like))) Local cops in the amount of 4pcs, standing near his car in the square at night when nobody is around and there is no longer, waving, beckoning, well-chatted with them, laughed and I went to sleep with the road) And when you ambition and eternally disgruntled face something to ask or even appear anywhere and behave with people prinebrezhitelno and like a servant, it certainly would be awful for you, and everywhere))) And I want to say - sit at home or out in the countryside drove on vacation)) ...
Here I agree completely! Golden words! ...
