Went here with my fiance with no guide. Easy to get there, beautiful breathtaking place which you can walk around in a less than an hour (especially when it's 40 degrees outside). Great stop over on your way to Matmata or other places.

We drove to Chenini recently, and found ourselves almost alone. Well worth the trip to see the views from high on the ridge. Extreme life-style of the Berber people was well explained by our guide Ali. We stayed in the Kenza hotel, which is a...More
