Hi, Hopefully someone can help me out?. I'm going to be staying in Tunis in July 2014 (so plenty of time) and I wanted to visit Matmata and see the Hotel Sidi Driss as i'm a Star Wars fan.
I've spent a good few hours working out how to do it and what I've decided on is I'll take the early train from Tunis to Gabes and then locate the louage stop nearby to get to Matmata arriving around 13:00
It seems advisable to stay at Hotel Marhala which I guess is within walking distance to see the Sidi Driss.
Hopefully the above is the correct way to do it but what about getting back?. I'd stay overnight then head back to Tunis - I was looking at getting the train from Gabes to Tunis at 09:00 or 11:15 but my concern is getting to Gabes from Matmata at set times. Will I be able to get a taxi or louage? or am I really in the stix?. My French isn't that good to email the hotel Marhala in advance and ask about transport in the local area.
Any advice is welcome or has anyone completed this journey? Perhaps there is a better way to do it?.
Thanks in advance,
