This service targets travel agencies, associations and educational institutions (kindergarten, schools and universities) for the organisation of tourist trips.

The “SNCFT Voyages” train can be used by 200 hikers’ associations operating in Tunisia to discover inland areas using environmentally friendly means of transport.

Oueslati indicated that the transport costs vary according to the route chosen by the beneficiaries of this service with the adoption of the cost of 9 dinars per kilometer.

For her part, Director General of Organic Agriculture, Samia Maamer, emphasised the importance of this service and its compatibility with the strategy of the Ministry of Agriculture to develop 24 circuits of organic agriculture by 2020.
