According to a recent study, 69% of Adults have watched Star Wars. This is hardly surprising when you consider the cult-following the franchise has acquired over the years; spanning several reboots, games, books, and even yearly events such as the Star Wars Celebration.
In fact, Star Wars is one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time. And for good reasons – it’s the perfect escape from reality into a galaxy far, far away from everyday life.
However, how would you feel if we told you that it’s not that far away after all? Thanks to Galaxy Tours, Starwars fans can now take their love of the franchise to the next level by making it a reality (and this doesn’t mean you need to go into space).
With that in mind, here are just some of the reasons why you should book a Galaxy Tour.
The Chance To See Stunning Film Locations In Person
The main drive behind attending a star wars tour is getting the opportunity to see instantly recognizable sites in person. No longer hidden behind a screen, you can visit some of the most iconic Tunisian-based locations, such as Ksar Ommarsia (Anakin’s Hovel), Amghar Mosque (Obi-Wan’s dwelling), and Hotel Sidi Idriss (Lars Homestead) to name just a few. Not only does this make for great photo opportunities, but it’s also a great way to make lasting memories for any Star Wars Fan.
Access to behind-the-scenes information
Every Star Wars fan is keen to learn more about the franchise – especially as George Lucas created such an interesting and varied world when constructing this world. By attending the tours, you’ll receive unparalleled behind-the-scenes insight into all things Star Wars – whether you want to learn more about its iconic stars, or cinematic secrets that helped bring the magic to life. Your guide will also be a fan of the series, meaning they’ll be just as excited as you are each day.
The chance to travel
Another major benefit of a star wars tour, compared to other cinematic-experiences like screenings and museums, is that they are also paired with the opportunity to travel more extensively. After all, the tour packages take you through a variety of different locations in Tunisia, allowing you to catch a glimpse of everything the country has to offer. During this time, you’ll also be able to stop by a variety of historical sites (some of which double as filming locations), and sample a wide range of delicious cuisine.
Furthermore, the trips promise to combine adventure with luxury – especially if you select one of the premium packages. For example, not only will you spend time on the road exploring the sites, you’ll also get to stay at some of the best hotels in Tunisia, such as the Mövenpick Hotel Gammarth, Hotel Sidi Idriss, and Anantara Sahara-Tozeur Resort & Villas. Furthermore, more than your average site-seeing tour, you’ll also be able to participate in a range of adventurous activities, such as a hot air balloon excursion and a canyon hiking scavenger hunt.
