For fellow overlanders using this blog for research here our some tips about Tunisia which you may find useful:
1) If you are coming on the ferry from Genoa it is wise to book a hotel for your first night as the ship gets in late and there is nowhere to camp in Tunis that we could see. The Hotel El Mouradi Gammarth is very nice (although a little expensive, but reasonable for Tunis). It is near Carthage, which is close to the port and away from the bustle of the city. A taxi ride in to Tunis is about £4 (8 dinar). It also has free wifi in reception and secure parking outside.
2) If you have any problems with your Landrover don’t go to the Land Rover dealer, they’re unhelpful and can’t speak English. The following supplier and mechanic will be able to help you.

3) Don’t get in non-metred taxis (they are double the price).
4) If you breakdown on the motorway, don’t panic. Just flag down one of the passing tow trucks and negotiate a price with them.
