FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS | TWIN SUNS EXPEDITIONS

Tunisia borders the Mediterranean Sea in the Maghreb region of North Africa approximately 150 kilometers southwest of Sicily (Italy). Tunisian culture is eclectically infused with Maghrebi, Arab, Mediterranean, and European influences.

Tunisia, the gem of Star Wars tourism destinations, is distinguished as the country with the second most number of unique Star Wars film sites (12 total). Four Skywalker saga live-action films contain principal photography footage shot in Tunisia: A New Hope (1977), The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002), and Revenge of the Sith (2005). The Mandalorian live-action series incorporates third-party footage filmed in Tunisia for Chapter 5: “The Gunslinger” (2019). Tunisian architecture, landscape, and names/references are ubiquitous in Star Wars canon. Fictional Tatooine in many respects is a direct reflection of Tunisia. No other real-world destination offers the same level of organic immersion into the Star Wars universe.

Representing locations in 1930s Egypt and Greece, Lucasfilm shot extensive footage in central and southern Tunisia (5 film sites) to make Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981). Beyond studio content, Tunisia accounts for more collective screen time than any other country in the first Indiana Jones cinematic installment, leaving an indelible impact on the franchise.

We are the only travel company to specialize in Star Wars and Indiana Jones tourism in Tunisia. We maintain this refined focus to be the best at what we do. Our professionalism and expertise are authenticated by our status as the only travel company approved by Lucasfilm to exhibit at Star Wars Celebration. Exact set, scene, and sequence locations at Star Wars and Indiana Jones film sites in Tunisia matched with franchise production details, original discoveries, unrivaled behind-the-scenes insight, and in-depth historical context embody the Galaxy Tours difference. Our trailblazing pursuit to uncover Lucasfilm location scout activity distinguishes our tours as the first to incorporate verified Star Wars recce sites in Tunisia. All itinerary destinations are linked to Star Wars or Indiana Jones franchise activity.

Yes. All Star Wars and Indiana Jones locations in Tunisia are innately visit-worthy due to their inherent value as essential Tunisian landmarks, to include UNESCO-designated sites on Djerba island and in the Kairouan medina. Travelers of all types will value the Tunisian heritage, cultural experiences, fine dining, and premium resort accommodations weaved into the fabric of our tours.

Three. The comparison table at the top of this page maps out the differences between our 3-Day, 4-Day, and 6-Day packages.

Of course. Anything is possible. Contact us to share specifics about your ideal itinerary. Be sure to include the following: (1) start point/end point, (2) travel dates/tour duration, (3) must-see sites/experiences on your list, and (4) budget parameters. We’ll take it from there to see what we can do to make it happen.

Price includes a multi-day guided tour in Tunisia (length depends on the selected package), specialized guide(s), exclusive Galaxy Tours itinerary solely focused on Star Wars and Indiana Jones tourism locations, cinematic digital reference guides, outdoor adventure elements, tailored activities/experiences, premium travel/logistics, professional driver, airport pick-up/drop-off (package-specific restrictions apply), and complimentary bottled water.

Yes. The packages are all-inclusive with a few standard exceptions. Rest assured that all itinerary-specific lodging, meals, and transport are included in the cost of each package. No surprises. We promise.

The following list of standard exceptions are not included in our tour packages: international airfare to/from Tunisia, arrangements/expenses required to travel to tour start points and/or beyond tour end points, medical expenses, personal travel insurance, passport fees, visa fees (if required), additional product taxes (if applicable), additional meals/snacks, alcoholic beverages, personal activities, personal spending, and tips (optional).

No. Travelers are required to make arrangements and cover the cost of international travel to/from Tunisia.

3-Day tour starts and ends on Djerba. 4-Day tour starts on Djerba, ends in Tunis. 6-Day tour starts and ends in Tunis. We purposely bookend our tours with Tunis or Djerba—the two key international travel hubs in/out of Tunisia—to create streamlined, stress-free, end-to-end holiday packages for our guests.

All Star Wars locations in Tunisia are located in the south (approximately six hours from Tunis by car), spanning the width of the country from remote Saharan landscapes in the southwest to historic hilltop landmarks in the southeast coupled with coastal sites on Djerba island.

Djerba and Tozeur airports are closest to the Star Wars locations in southern Tunisia. Djerba-Zarzis Airport (DJE) schedules limited direct flights to/from international destinations. Domestic flights between Djerba and Tunis run multiple times each day; only the morning flight is reliable to arrive on time. Tozeur-Nefta Airport (TOE) services no direct international flights. Domestic flights between Tozeur and Tunis are scheduled only a few times each week, rarely depart on time, and often are postponed or canceled without warning. All in all, Djerba is the optimal access airport for Star Wars tourism, aligned to our 3-Day package. Given that the vast majority of international flights in/out of Tunisia are routed through Tunis-Carthage Airport (TUN), we maximize this situation for our guests by including a half-day visit to Kairouan (Indiana Jones Cairo) in central Tunisia while driving from Tozeur to Tunis on the last day of both our 4-Day and 6-Day packages.

Specialized Tunisian guides personally recruited/trained by Galaxy Tours CEO (Davin Anderson) lead our Twin Suns Expeditions. All of our guides are accredited/licensed to conduct tours in Tunisia. Each guide is professional, caring, charismatic, and expert in what we do.

Yes. All tours led by our specialized Tunisian guides are private tours bookable to start at any time throughout the year on any day of the week to fit your schedule. The only exception is the occasional fixed-date 6-Day group tour option led by Galaxy Tours CEO (Davin Anderson).

We try to avoid this scenario as much as possible. Our booking calendars by default block out the entirety of Ramadan and major Tunisian holidays. If no other dates match your schedule, please contact us to figure out the best way forward.

All tours are conducted in English as the standard. French, German, Italian, and Arabic options are available per request (subject to availability). Please contact us for more information. Cinematic digital reference guides provided in English.

The next-level tourism experience we provide includes digital reference material specific to each Star Wars and Indiana Jones film site in Tunisia. Travelers will have access to this Galaxy Tours proprietary content via their own smartphone or tablet for the duration of the tour. Our reference guides meticulously cover all historical, behind-the-scenes, and frame-by-frame visual details at each site, to include maps with pinpoint locations for each scene. We’ve done all the heavy lifting. All the research. All the field work. We created these “secret sauce” documents as part of our commitment to give our guests a stress-free, no-research-required, once-in-a-lifetime fandom adventure in Tunisia.

Our 4-Day and 6-Day Twin Suns Expedition packages visit all 12 Star Wars film sites in southern Tunisia, utilizing ATVs to navigate to the remote desert sites in the Tozeur region near Nefta. Our 3-Day package visits 11 Star Wars film sites in the country, excluding only the Gour Beni Mzab area (Star Wars location: Tatooine Dune Sea) due to accessibility restrictions without ATVs.

We spent over four years conducting meticulous research and field work to establish our website as the authoritative, one-stop resource on all Star Wars locations in Tunisia. Each location has its own dedicated page on our website under the Film Sites or Scouted Sites menu tabs.

Yes. All packages include Raiders of the Lost Ark locations inside Maguer Gorge used for the Ark of the Covenant canyon procession. Our 6-Day package adds a stop at the Bouhlel Sdada date palm orchard staged as the expansive Tanis digs set with pinpointed locations for the Well of the Souls, Map Room, German Flying Wing runway, and segments of Indy’s dirt road chase after the Ark of the Covenant on the German truck. Both our 4-Day and 6-Day packages conclude with a half-day visit to the ancient Kairouan medina used extensively for Indy’s Cairo with 17 total filming areas (streets, plazas, and properties) in the old city. This one-of-a-kind Indiana Jones tourism experience includes the iconic Cairo swordsman plaza, Marhala Bar location, and an exclusive sunset event on the rooftop dressed as Sallah’s terrace.

Yes. This is one of the highlights. Although a rustic lodging option, overnighting at Hotel Sidi Idriss (Lars Homestead interior film site) in Matmata is a must-do experience for Star Wars fans. The hotel provides separate bedrooms with a communal restroom area. Sipping blue milk at breakfast in the subterranean Lars Homestead dining room is as immersive as it gets.

Our 4-Day and 6-Day Twin Suns Expedition packages include one full day on ATVs (doubling as “podracers” or “landspeeders” depending on the location) as the mode of transportation to all Star Wars sites in the desert dunes and salt flat areas near Nefta in the Tozeur region. As a bonus, this one-of-a-kind ATV adventure allows travelers to race in the dune impression used to shoot “Boonta Eve Classic” starting grid footage for The Phantom Menace. Adult guests can choose to drive their own ATV or ride with a co-traveler. Youth and children are obligated to ride as ATV passengers. If health restrictions or other considerations restrict ATV travel, alternate transportation will be provided with a slightly adjusted itinerary on the scheduled ATV day.

Yes. Absolutely. The more cosplay, the better. Our tours are the perfect special excursion for Star Wars fan clubs of all sizes. Please contact us for special rates.

We partner with the best Tunisian resorts/boutique hotels to ensure maximum comfort in premium accommodations. Our lodging partner in Tunis is a 5-star seaside resort with sweeping views of the Mediterranean, private beach access, spa/hammam, fitness center, and indoor/outdoor pool. Our two lodging partners on Djerba island are 4-star historic Djerbahood mansions in Erriadh with upscale traditional rooms, common courtyard areas, and outdoor pool(s). Our lodging partner in Nefta is a one-of-a-kind 5-star eco-resort with retro design, a trendy vibe, geothermal-heated outdoor pool, and spacious stand-alone rooms overlooking the fertile Corbeille oasis below. We share specific lodging details after bookings are confirmed. For travelers seeking world-class luxury, we offer a special add-on option to stay at the Anantara Sahara Resort for nights spent in the Tozeur region during the tour.

We partner with top-notch Tunisian transportation vendors for travel to/from all itinerary locations, to include airport transfers (as required). Travelers ride in comfortable, air-conditioned five-passenger SUV or 10-passenger microbus vehicles with professional driver(s). Vehicle type depends on the size of the group. Our 4-Day and 6-Day packages include an action-packed outing on ATVs as part of the tour.

Day 1 on both the 3-Day and 4-Day tour is packed with a full itinerary covering locations from Djerba island to the mainland Médenine, Tataouine, and Gàbes regions. If guests are already staying on Djerba prior to Day 1 (strongly recommended), we will arrange morning pick-up directly at your hotel to start the tour. If guests are flying to Djerba on Day 1 (not recommended), the 50-minute early morning Tunisair Express flight from Tunis to Djerba will need to be booked (arranged independently). In such cases, we will meet you directly at the island airport to begin the tour.

Yes. In fact, we strongly recommend this. Not only does it allow you to spend one or two sun-soaked days on Djerban beaches, this approach removes any chance of Tunisair Express travel hiccups on Day 1 of your tour.

Day 1 on the 6-Day tour is structured to receive travelers arriving into Tunis from international destinations. You will be transferred from the Tunis Airport to our partner 5-star seaside resort in the La Marsa district to relax. If you are already in Tunis, we will facilitate ground transfer to our partner resort on Day 1. The only planned itinerary activity on this day is dinner at the resort.

The last day of the 3-Day tour includes a half-day stop at Maguer Gorge to explore Star Wars Canyon before hitting the road to return to Djerba from Tozeur (approximately five hours by car). Premium lodging on Djerba island and all meals on this final day are included. As a bonus, breakfast and transportation to the Djerba Airport (as required) on the following day are also included.

The last day of the 4-Day and 6-Day tour includes a half-day stop at Kairouan to discover Indy’s Cairo in the historic medina as part of the trip from Tozeur to Tunis (approximately six hours by car). Premium lodging in Tunis and all meals on this final day are included. As a bonus, breakfast and transportation to the Tunis Airport (as required) on the following day are also included.

Yes. All age groups are welcome with some restrictions. Travelers under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Some hiking activities might be too strenuous for young children. ATV riders must be at least 8 years old to participate. Vehicle transportation (with a slightly adjusted itinerary) will be used in lieu of ATVs in such cases.

Yes, with exceptions. Although most itinerary stops permit direct vehicle drop-off on flat terrain, several locations require movement on uneven/rocky/sandy surfaces. Not suitable for wheelchairs or scooters. Please contact us for case-by-case considerations.

There is never a bad time of year for our Twin Suns Expeditions. That said, the heat index in southern/central Tunisia during June, July, August and even September can rise well above 40°C/105°F. As much as possible, we adjust our tour activities during these summer months to incorporate earlier start times, breaks during the afternoon heat, and extended evening hours. Late fall, winter, and early spring provide the most pleasant outdoor temperatures for our tours.

Seasonal, climate-appropriate clothing should be worn on the tours. During warmer months, it is best to wear a breathable long-sleeved shirt, pants, head and neck covering, plus sunscreen. During colder months, we recommend a combination of interchangeable shirt/sweater/jacket layers and pants.

No. Tunisians practice a very tolerant version of Islam. Although the traditional dress for females includes a headscarf, Tunisian society accepts all forms of fashion. Modern dress standards are embraced as a common part of daily life.

Yes. We are a registered tour operator in Tunisia approved by the Tunisian National Tourism Office (ONTT) to conduct tours.

Yes. We offer a 10% small-group discount for bookings with at least five adults. The savings extend to a 15% large-group discount for bookings with ten or more adults. In addition, we offer 25% off for youth (ages 12-17) and 45% off for children (ages 4-11) traveling with at least one adult. All discounts are automatically calculated at check-out.

Online check-out offers travelers the option to either pay in full or submit a 35% deposit to secure a booking. If the down payment option is selected, the full balance is due no later than 7 days prior to tour start date, payable via secure email link.

No. We accept parties of all sizes, to include solo travelers. Our business model obligates a single supplement charge for one-person bookings.

3G/4G connectivity is reliable throughout Tunisia. Mobile access is available at all Star Wars and Indiana Jones locations (excluding Maguer Gorge), enabling unhindered access to our digital reference guides during the tour. Some international carriers offer unlimited data roaming in Tunisia for smartphone/hotspot usage. For most travelers, the easiest option is to purchase inexpensive prepaid Tunisian SIM cards with streamlined data refill options at airport kiosks for less than $5 (one SIM card preloaded with 10GB of data). Our preferred provider in the country is Orange Tunisia.

Power sockets in Tunisia are type C (Europlug) and E. Adaptors might be needed to charge smartphones and other dual voltage electronics. Portable chargers are strongly recommended to ensure all-day device functionality.

Tunisian dinar (TND). The term dinar is derived from the Roman silver denarius, linking modern-day Tunisia to its post-Carthaginian past as the fertile center of the Roman Africa Proconsularis province, later identified as Ifriqiya by the Umayyads. DT (French: dinar tunisien) is the abbreviation most commonly used for the currency in Tunisia. 1 DT is subdivided into 1,000 milim, which are used to express small, fractional prices. Tunisian taxis—a safe and inexpensive method of travel in cities—often quote fares in milim. A taxi fare of 4,750 milim, for example, equates to 4.75 DT. Bartering localities (like street markets and roadside shops) also deal in milim. Established commercial enterprises use “whole” dinar prices.

Tunisia functions in general as a cash-based economy in most sectors. We recommend carrying a small sum of cash (100-200 DT) for travel continuity during the tour. International credit and debit cards, however, are widely accepted at hotels, restaurants, major grocery outlets, shopping centers, and businesses catering to travelers.

ATMs offer the most flexible way to obtain Tunisian dinars at the best conversion rate. Although 24-hour ATMs are numerous in city centers and other high-traffic areas (like airports), the availability to withdraw funds from ATMs is sometimes hit or miss, especially on evenings and weekends. ATM cash restocking schedules vary widely. The Tunisian dinar is a closed currency with legal restrictions on both importing and exporting the currency in or out of the country.

Arabic is the official language of Tunisia. Natives speak the Tunisian/Maghrebi Arabic dialect. French is widely spoken by the majority of the population. English and Italian, to a much lesser extent, also serve as lingua francas. Foundational German and Russian are spoken on a limited basis in touristic zones. Dialects of the Tunisian Amazigh (Berber) languages—collectively referred to as Shelha—are spoken in distinct population pockets in the southeastern governorates and on Djerba island, to include locales such as Douiret, Chenini, Matmata, Tamezret, Ajim, Guellala, and Sedouikech. Regardless of the language used, responsible travelers will find it easy to integrate into the proactively inclusive Tunisian culture.

Foreign nationals from roughly 100 countries can enter Tunisia for a limited duration without obtaining a visa. The visa-exempt status depends on the nationality of the visitor and differs between 30 to 120 days.

The following vaccinations are recommended (not required): chickenpox (varicella), COVID-19, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, influenza, measles, meningitis, mumps and rubella (MMR), pneumonia, polio, rabies, shingles, Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), and typhoid. Yellow fever vaccination certificate not required. Contracting malaria in Tunisia is low risk.

Over 35 European cities service direct flights to Tunis, to include Brussels, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, London (Heathrow & Gatwick), Madrid, Paris (Orly), Rome (Fuimicino), Stockholm, and Vienna. France (9 total), Germany (7 total), and Italy (6 total) have the greatest number of cities with direct connections to Tunis.

The most common routes to Tunis from the United States are via Frankfurt or Paris. Montreal stands alone as the only city in North America with direct flights to Tunis.

The following alliances fly to Tunis: Oneworld, SkyTeam, and Star Alliance. Tunis-Carthage is TUN. Djerba-Zarzis is DJE. Tozeur-Nefta is TOE.

Yes. Following standard practice within the tourism industry, all travelers are required to sign a separate Twin Suns Expedition agreement/liability waiver to participate in any booked tour.

Inclement weather, strikes, civil disturbances, or other unforeseeable circumstances might restrict access to certain itinerary locations, partially hinder specific tour activities, and/or cause delays. We reserve the right to make any itinerary adjustments to ensure the comfort and safety of all travelers. No discounts or refunds will be offered in such cases.

Yes. Traveling to all Star Wars and Indiana Jones locations in Tunisia is unquestionably safe. All areas visited on our tours fall well beyond official travel advisory specifications. Petty crime targeting tourists is rare. The Tunisian proclivity to embrace, accept, and protect international visitors is both genuine and ingratiating. International media outlets—especially since the cluster of mass-casualty attacks in Tunis and near Sousse in 2015—routinely paint Tunisia as a hotbed for radical Islamic extremism. This perception is fundamentally false. The overwhelming majority of Tunisians interpret terrorism to be in direct conflict with Tunisian ideals and values. Pivotal security developments since 2016 to thwart Islamist activity in Tunisia continue to drastically minimize the probability of future large-scale terrorist attacks inside the country. The current security challenge posed by organized Islamist groups based in Tunisia mirrors a low-impact insurgency combating Tunisian security forces rather than a protracted terrorist campaign. These militant groups, relatively small in number with no capacity to seize control of any populated territory, operate autonomously in northwestern Tunisia, primarily in isolated mountainous areas in the Kasserine and Kef governorates. In regard to ISIS-inspired/politically motivated “lone wolves,” the probability of a single-actor attack in Tunisia is no greater than the rate of such attacks in regionally adjacent European countries.

All amounts paid will be refunded for cancellations made at least 15 days prior to tour start date. 50% of amounts paid will be refunded for cancellations made between 7 to 15 days prior to tour start date. No refunds will be offered after 7 days prior to tour start date. In the unlikely event of cancellation due to extreme weather, natural disaster, pandemic-related circumstances, or other emergency conditions in Tunisia, refunds on all amounts paid will be offered.

Ensuring that local Tunisian communities benefit from Star Wars and Indiana Jones tourism is foundational to our company. Our marketing efforts enhance Tunisia’s profile as the optimal off-the-beaten-path tourist destination. We bring clients to local hotels, restaurants, and transportation services. We train, develop, and generate work for local Tunisian guides. Partnering directly with local entities, we provide financial support, targeted research, and collaborative outreach to assist in the restoration/preservation of Star Wars sites in Tunisia as historical landmarks of worldwide cultural value.
