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! ...

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)) ...

Good afternoon.
Tunisia is an interesting country, and strange for our culture. As always there is a lot of positive , there are negative. But for the rest it is not mikroshemka of mold in the room to do, and try to relax, someone like seal on the beach, someone backpack behind and places of interest. There were kids last year in hotel Thapsus mahdija of the hotel is stated as a 3*, I liked everything and the sea and the hotel and catering and excursions planned, I do not like organized tours. This year we're going to the Sahara beach and I hope too it will be perfect. Did not notice the neglect of Russian, if you behave properly, then you will have the same attitude. ...

There is something in Tunisia children to watch? Type zoos, aquariums, and other prikolyuh? Or purely cultural heritage are for adults? Children are small and tours are obviously not for them. ...

Basically as far as I know such entertainment is only within individual complexes, and so separately, do not recall. Of course to take advantage of the on-site hotels, you need to live there, not allowed. ...
