My husband and I are booking a package trip for 2 weeks in Sousse (basically because it's as cheap as getting flights only). We will be there 23 Nov to 8 Dec and will be travelling with Thomson Holidays. During that time we are planning to leave the resort and travel independently down to the "Star Wars" sites for 3 days, followed by up to Tunis for 5 days.
I had been planning to do this by train but have read on this forum that it is difficult/slow/unreliable. I had been planning on just turning up and buying tickets/reservations a day or two before travel. Has anybody done this? Would I be better doing this by bus? Problem is neither of us speak French so it needs to be fairly straightforward.
Or should I stick to excursions / an agency? I'd much rather do it independently as I prefer to make up my own mind when I travel, eat etc. But I don't have much time to organise and I want it to be a relaxing holiday too!
Any help would be much appreciated.
