I have been to Morocco but nothing compares to Tunisia. I fell for the trick of a thief who claimed to be the "waiter" of my hotel on Djerba. (A very common trick.) Simply ask the person who claims it for the name of the hotel. ? They won't be able to name it and get mad at you...Once in the bazaar, I tried to buy ceramics for 5 times the price it would have cost. But their greed for money and lack of respect would not stop, they cheated me with the exchange rate (Dinar-Euro) and sold me the things for 10 times its original value!! Only with the help of a local Tunisian refunds are possible and indeed, I could get my money back.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
