Not a question, just a heads-up: so many scams in Tunisia…
It’s so bad, you can’t even ask directions or he’s suddenly your guide and will demand payment. One trick is to walk into a shop for directions; they can’t leave their shop to join you. Old men and islamists are usually OK too.
Another trick is to approach you for a friendly chat, then when they find out where you’re headed (a restaurant, say), they’ll walk 20 paces ahead of you so you can’t tell them you’re not interested, show you a restaurant and demand payment. Never tell locals where you’re going; just say you’re having a wander round.
Your new friend wants to show you a carpet factory? Sounds interesting, right? It’s a scam. It’s a shop and you’ll be exposed to some extremely aggressive hard sell.
The list is endless. The same is true for Morocco.
