Sahara Desert Trip

Hi we are off to Port El Kantaoui in Sept. I would love to do this Sahara Explorer two day trip. I have read on the foreign office website that only essential travel to this area is advised as Douz is on the border. Is this the case and have these trips been cancelled?

If not, does anyone have any idea on the cost please.

Thanks in advance.

I recently went on this trip. Booked it through Thomas Cook. Can't remember the exact cost but think it was £88 each. You also need to pay for the optional extra camel ride and 4x4 jeep ride which was around £20 each.

The trip was a great experience especially seeing the sun rise over the salt lakes. Stunning.

Hi,

Did you book this through thomas cook in resort? I have tried to book it with them in the travel agents and they dont seem to offer any 2 day excursions?

If not, could you tell me how you booked this please? Really want to go!

Thanks

You will most certainly have options to book this in the resort/at your hotel,

Other agents other than Cook will be available over there

The link I gave to reviews of this trip in my previous post should help you ;-)

Recent reviewer did this trip with T/Cook last month

Here is a link to prices and other information

www.ttsbooking.tn/info/Excursions_TTS.aspx

Tunisian Travel Service is the company Cook use in for excursions

Have a nice holiday

Hi, I booked the trip through the Thomas Cook rep.

I booked tour holiday through Thomson but they were not offering the trip. The Thomson rep advised that we speak to the Thomas Cook rep who was happy to take our booking.

Hope this helps.
