Christmas Cruise - Souk

After going to the site of Carthage the tour in Tunisia took us to a Souk which:

is a commercial quarter in an Arab or Berber city...often used to
designate the market in any Arabized or Muslim city.
We really have no idea how tourists who don't have a guide ever make it out of the Souks. Being inside the Souk felt like we were in an action movie like Bourne Supremecy (which you will see in a following post). Needless to say we did not like it and did not go into any of the shops (except the perfume and rug shops with the tour). We were harrassed several times by the shopkeepers and none of the shops didn't really look worth going into and so we didn't.
