About the tour

Sidi-Bou-Saïd is a charming little Andalusian-style village dating back to the 17th century and features a varied range of medieval architecture. Mohamed will take us through its picturesque lanes to see splendid mansions, shops, and balconies decorated in wonderful shades of white and blue. Come along to see the gorgeous vistas over the bay of Carthage and the Mediterranean sea. We'll also admire an esplanade full of famous mansions, including that of the Baron Rudolph d'Erlanger which is now the National Museum for Arab and Mediterranean Musical Instruments. You'll be left in awe of the splendour and mystique this wonderful village has to offer!

Fascinating place as one of the bluest cities in the world. Love how everything is white and blue (with some orange). Mohamed showed us around to see very pretty house decorations, doors, balconies, façades, etc. He also took us to some spots where you can get a magnificent view of the city. Great great and I recommend because it's one of the most picturesque places you'll see.

I was pleased to see there was a tour of Sidi Bou Said, as I had wanted to see it on a Med cruise. Unfortunately, we weren't able to go, but now after having seen Mohammed's tour, I definitely want to go. He was a great guide and really made the town come alive!
