A 6 day FRIENDS ABROADsm TOUR
For the Independent traveler
Tunisia!! AAAAH! desert oases, curious troglodyte dwellings, Islamic splendors, a Roman amphitheater, and unspoiled beaches. You’ll appreciate the breathtaking beauty of a land that has drawn wanderers over the centuries.
O yes, galactic traveler, there is a land where fabled cities arise from the sand, where gnomes have left behind their warrens of dwellings, where sleek craft hover millimeters above the surface free from gravitational bonds. Green oases and palm-fringed beaches promise extraterrestrial pleasures. The land is Tunisia. Visit Matmata Oases and maybe experience the troglodyte accommodation (subject to availability).
We’ll send you a copy of the Lonely Planet guide to Tunisia so you can read up on this romantic destination.
International airfare is not included in the rates, so feel free to use frequent flyer tickets, or ask us about our special fares.

Episodes I II, and IV of Star Wars were filmed among, and inspired by, the extraordinary landscapes, the exotic architecture, and the pervasive mystery of this land, and we’ll explore it in the Star Wars spirit. We’ll visit legendary Kairouan, canyons and waterfalls concealed in desert fastnesses, and traverse great sand dunes. Our adventure will culminate with an in-depth exploration of Oung Jemel, the real-life desert planet of Tatooine.
