Welcome to Tunisia.
FOR YOUR MEETINGS, INCENTIVE, CONFERENCE AND EVENT
Tunisia is considered one of the most attractive destinations in Africa. With its ideal climate, long and gentle seacoast, Tunisia, the northernmost country of Africa, has for over 3000 years witnessed the passage of Phoenicians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Turks, Spanish and French.
Whatever your needs and constraints, Tunisia will be sure to delight you. Natural and historic sites, beaches of golden sand and the immense Sahara, thalassotherapy centres and golf courses, luxury accommodation and charming hotels have made it a choice destination for meetings, incentives, congresses, and events alike.
Thanks to the democratic transition for which it received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2015, it will satisfy the ethical considerations of any visitors used to a certain level of social and political modernity!
Sidi Bou Said.
Stroll through the narrow streets of this picturesque small town. Bordered by white-washed houses with blue shutters and doors located on top of a steep cliff, and overlookings the Mediterranean Sea Sidi has inspired famous artists and writers Paul Klee and Andre Gide.
Take to the land of no man and admire the perfect sunrise and sunset. A total of fifty-two comfortable and eco-friendly white canvas tents offer accommodation in the middle of the Sahara, with soft Bedouin blankets, candlesticks, and everything else designed to preserve the local nature.
This Island invites you to daydream, and is ideal for relaxing, treating yourself, partying, and taking part in games and sporting activities. Visit the El-Ghriba synagogue located in central Djerba: the most prominent reminder of the island’s vibrant Jewish community.

Why This DMC?
As a Salsa dancer, dancing and connecting with people from everywhere have always been my passion. My motto is to make Tunisia well known all over the world. Although it is a tiny country in North Africa, its 3000 years of heritage makes it look huge. After finishing many years of studies, I have decided to take over the family business and continue what my mother has already built: an honourable reputation and a high standard of quality services after many years of experience in the field.
The client is extremely satisfied with the way the whole event was organized and managed efficiently, to the highest expectations of the client.
I can say that I was flabbergasted by the way you handled this requirement at the nick of the moment.

Why Choose Tunisia - Barclay’s Group Travel
THE POWER OF OUR LOCAL KNOWLEDGE
Tunisia is close to several major European capitals and is connected to them via frequent flights. Besides offering a reduction in the stress and fatigue associated with long journeys and saving on travel expenses, Tunisia is the only destination where it is possible to organise short term events in such an exotic setting as, for example, the Sahara.
Tunisia offers so much variety in sites, monuments, and meeting locations that it is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for creative and original events. For every conference’s objectives or incentive event theme – energy efficiency, nature conservation, hydraulic resources, humanitarian action, healthcare, sustainable development – you will find settings ideally suited to encourage your event’s success.
The cultural wealth can also be found within the country’s rich gastronomy, with Berber, Andalusian, Jewish and Italian influences. It is brimming with history.
We know what gets asked a lot about bringing groups to Tunisia. Here’s our fast track answers, so you know.
Tunisians speak Arabic and French; English is not frequent, but no worries touristic areas and the new generations will impress you.
There is a variety of recipes from a region to another, you will find fresh fish, great lamb, and couscous all around the country.

Depending on where to go, the weather in Tunisia is usually nice with high temperature in the south, mild spring and autumn and hot and dry summers. Do not forget, it is in the Mediterranean you will enjoy the best tan during summer.

Tunisia is different in many subtle and visible ways: it has undergone many political changes since 2010. After receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 2015, Tunisia now is a nice, easy, and comfortable: It is a Muslim country where you do not have to wear a veil or hijab. Where people are open to other religions, having the oldest synagogue in the world and a catholic cathedral both working (and worth a visit.)
