1 still shudder at the mere memory of the vacation in Tunisia. I went there alone and one day when sunbathing on the beach to me began to molest any native, offered scarves to buy all sorts, jewelry, Souvenirs, I politely refused him, and he did not lag behind. Directly in a brazen climb, grabbed my hand. Passed near male tourist and seeing that the local completely rein stood up. Tunisian from behind and hurried to leave the beach, but goodbye came close to me close and said something very rude in his language. I shuddered the entire.... The evening kind of went away a little bit, went to the sea to walk on the beach, and as luck would have it nobody was. I go and hear someone sneaking behind me, I turn around and there's this with a dealer and two strangers. They are grabbing me, dragging behind the hotel, I shout, I keep my mouth, luckily the security guards were patrolling the coastal area, otherwise I don't know what would have happened.........still tears in my eyes when I think about it . Do not advise anyone to travel to Tunisia, there really dangerous, not like Russian, Russian women are mistaken for prostitutes and at every opportunity ready to rape, kill, humiliate...... ...

1Ужасно dirty!!!!!!!!!! I even could not think that in Tunisia - resort in the country can be such a pigsty. The beach is covered in garbage all over the packaging of products, any packages, paper, dry twigs, things is fucked up. It was terrible to walk along the beach because a couple of times seen broken glass bottles..... Garbage even swims in the sea, it's dangerous, and suddenly the bacteria which will pick up more and skin disease...tin is shorter. The strange thing is that the hotel management do not care about this, I complained to the receptionist, she politely smiled and said that will give the leadership, but for two weeks of vacation, so nothing has changed. ...

1Перед trip especially read the reviews, most solid rainbow dreams... But in fact a single minute to relax. All the time shaking, that something stole, purse, and even you. During the tours the streets are constantly beggars nailed. On the market if the wallet you're not, then at least fingered. The woman of the group managed to remove a wrist watch ...

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.

1 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. ...

1A 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!!! ...

1Всем good 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! ...
