My friend and I wanted to experience the local cuisine in Tunisia and we were so lucky to have found Engaging Cultures. Both Austin and Kevin were extremely helpful and were able to take us to Dar Omi, a bed and breakfast in Sousse. There, we spent the afternoon with Rabaa and her family where we went to the market and then cooked up a storm in the kitchen. The result was beyond expectations and I will never forget it.
