Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Magnificently grand on the outside

    Relatively simple, but impressive on the inside

    Definitely worth a quick stop to view the photos of the great man meeting statesmen from around the world, and some of his artefacts

    We wandered in from town by accident, and found a very relaxed little marina.

    During Ramadan most of the restaurants were open for lunch, which was a very pleasant surprise.

    Afterwards we strolled around looking at the boats, and took a walk out the far side to the peninsula.

    The whole estate is absolutely huge. The government have started selling off large plots to the extremely rich for them to build their own "palaces". Didn't actually pay to go inside the palace, but saw Bourguiba' Presidential limo. Beautiful Merc from 1950 something

    it offers lots of games for children and even for ados and adults, never think to take the Monastir eye(the big circle that is like the London eye) because someone died there, be careful when playing. the café-resto is good, cheap prices but not that great food, nothing special in it, just regular food. you have to try it especially when with your children but you won't have that much fun.

    Its my second visit to this small museum & today I took photos of some of the lovely costumes to share as I found it worthwhile if you're in the area .It's not far from the Bourghiba Mausoleum on the corner of Ave de L'Independence.The entrance fee is 5 Dinar & 1 dinar extra if you intend to take photos .Open from 9AM to 16h.

    My daughter liked it and so did I until I got told off by the attendant. He said it is only for little children? So we didn't go on it after that. My husband had been on it the day before and he was fine. Strange and quite pointless unless you have really small kids.

    Me and Paula had the privilege of riding Sultana and Lilly today.

    We were picked up and dropped off at the hotel by Abdallah. From the moment of meeting him, we knew that we were going to have a fantastic day. Abdallah is definitely a smart choice for Ekiclub, his customer service is second to none. He could teach many people in England a thing or two about excellent customer service. He genuinely came across that nothing was too much trouble.

    The short ride from the hotel to the stables was pleasant and even though it is Ramadan, Abdallah jumped out and graciously got water for myself and Paula.

    We had a little tour of the stables, on arrival and then we were introduced to Margot our other guide/instructor. Margot is a pleasant young lady and she communicated exactly what was required.

    We then were introduced to our horses. Sultana for me and Lilly for Paula. We walked them across the road to the start of the trail. We were assisted in mounting, my embarrassing moment was I almost fell off of the other side, poor Abdallah had to push me back up 🤣🤣🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️.

    Then we were off through the rambling dirt tracks through the countryside and olive groves. Abdallah was giving bits of information as we plodded along. Before we knew it we took a short break and Margot and Abdallah took some photos for us. Seriously if that had been the end of the experience it would have been worth every penny. That wasn't the end it was the point where we started our ride back.

    I wad told that Sultana usually is the slow one but today she was in a rush and I had to keep slowing her down, unfortunately that meant that she then wanted to eat, then I felt bad pulling her reigns to get her going again.

    If you are ever in Tunisia and close enough to monastir, this is a must do experience. Picked up at just after 9am and dropped off around 12:30.

    We did leave a small gratuity for our guides and after speaking about the experience at the hotel we both wish it had been much more. This is an amazing day and will be a highlight of the holiday.
