Customer Reviews

Having Mosaic help arrange the logistics of the trip made it an incredibly positive and much easier experience for us to travel around, without feeling like we were trapped on a “canned tour.”

Our guide was fantastic! Chris and I are special class of Star Wars nerds as we brought costumes and dressed up enacted stuff in some of the locations… We took over 1200 photos

I highly recommend that every Star Wars fan, lover of History, or if you just want to see visit a beautiful place, to pay a visit to Tunisia. And yes, Mosaic North Africa is a fantastic way to do just that. I can’t wait to go back one day.
