Attraction details
Reviewed 9 October 2012

We did not book through our rep as i emailed them before i left uk . the entrance price is 35 dinar about £14 an adult with dinner and light show or 20 dinar for just show itself . We left hotel went to entrance and had a barter with a taxi driver and got the return journey for 50 dinar about £20 what we paid after we arrived back at hotel saved money and time as we did not have to wait for everyone to get on bus then do a tour of sousse hotel before the got to ours. So if you base this on four adults rep or excersion company price will be 70 dinar (£30) or diy it works out at about £19 per person total saving around £44 . Anyway on to the trip we left hotel at 5.20pm as it opens at 5.30pm to give you time to look around the grounds meet some of the animals and people who take part in show . on the way our taxi driver was telling us things about the places we where going through and things your tour rep wont tell you but was all good, arrived at park greeted at the barrier think the security at it found it strange that we did not come on a bus group but said i emailed a can pay at door so no bother that way. we drove up and met by a second man payed given a ticket on this it tells you doors to go through for meal and the show. dinner was served first soup and bread and also a small plate of diffrent finger food and salad. At the main meal the groups where given big bowls of everything just thrown free for all . in it we where given our plate already dished out with chicken,cous cous ,boiled potato ,cabbage,carrots and waiter came round with gravy and during this time the dancers on the stage area with the meal show. the finally melon and grapes for afters, wine and soft drinks are as much as you like. . The main show we went up stairs then through door b on way the wife got a henna tattoo cost was £4 i got a can of coke cost 50p . sat down in show was given a headset then the show began . the laser effect was good with the lights water and also fire effects with actors, dancers and animals sometimes that much going on you did not know what way to look. showing the 3000 year of tunisian history . well worth the money and even more well worth it if you diy it

We went here through our tour operator's excursions and were very impressed.

On arrival you are given a ticket which tells you which door to go through for dinner, but in high season it didn't seem to matter as we ended up being sat 3 doors further up.

The first stage of the show is bread and dip cooked in a traditional outside oven. It was very yummy. You see a small 'farm' and a traditional Tunisian wedding. For the wedding they also use people from the spectators. You then see a horse show.

You will then go for dinner and a show. The dining room is busy but you have entertainment so you shouldn't be bored. There is a lot of food and wine and soft drinks are free. He you want more then just ask and they get it.

The final part is the light show. You get straw cushions to sit on. The show is amazing and the effects are stunning.

The market is very cheap...I got a sterling silver bracelet for 6 gbp! I didn't find them pushy and neither did my husband. You can also by a DVD of the show for 15 dinar.

Our only criticism is the show is long because it's in 3 languages, but it was still an amazing night out.

Brilliant show they have actors and actresses performing Tunisian history past with horses and camels. Traditional bread baking and a performance of a Tunisian Wedding! You have a lovely meal with different courses and plenty of drink whilst they entertain with dancers and a brilliant man that balances glass bottles on his head. The best was at the end a Light Laser show which was fantastic followed by an incredible performance of 3,000 years of Tunisa it was amazing great value for money at 70 Dinars for adults and 35 Dinars for children.

I recommend this show even for Tunisians. Even you could have an idea about the Tunisian history, this show is very nice, we can eat Couscous, briks,.. and see Folcloric shows.
I remember that there was some souvenirs shops.
