Thank's for that Amethyst, and don't forget a laugh as well,

Hi Phil E,

As you have been to Egypt you will find Tunisia similar in culture and food,

I have been to most of Egypt, from Cairo down to Aswan and the red sea area and I found the people Tunisian a lot more friendly and warm, Most of the hotels are about the same age as hotels in Hurghada, one or two not as glamorous though,

Any question's feel free to ask,

Just the usual

Ice in drinks

Salads washed in tap water

Always agree a price for a taxi before getting in

Respect the local culture laws religion etc

Be aware of people pretending to represent a tour company/hotel

Just use common sense as you would in any other country and all should be fine
