    Try to keep your bracelet hidden whilst out and about - it is quite common for people to approach you and pretend that they work at the hotel and then offer to take you around the town for a guided tour. In reality they know your hotel from the wrist band and are getting paid commission for each shop you buy from.

    Best Tunisia Sahara Tour Guide
    Ali Saadi Touareg Tours operates from Tozeur. Ali offers a full range of Tunisian tours, specialising in Sahara tours, trips into the desert including the oasis towns, mountains and Matmata (known for Star Wars). He speaks fluent English, French and Arabic and is a local guide. He is knowledgable and reliable. I travelled all over the south with this driver and would recommend him to anyone. Unforgettable experience.
