terrorists attack the Bardo Museum in Tunis

Two terrorists attacked one of the most beautiful museums on earth, the Bardo in Tunis, and killed 20 victims. Very sad. Also depressing is that Kuoni Travel punishes the victims and helps the terrorists by blocking Tunis out from excursions. They at Kuoni apparently do not realize that they have become accomplices of terrorists overnight

Kuoni used to be the official travel agency of the company I work for so i've had to book business travel with them many times. Let me tell you, they are not just accompices of terrorists. They are terrorists. Every single thing they do is designed to suck the will to live out of the marrow of their bones. They are the reason that George Dubya Bush famously declared war on tour(er)ism.

In regard to sanctions against victims of terrorism, Kuoni since the 1960ies always was at the forefront.

Re: terrorists attack the Bardo Museum in Tunis

According to Blick today, one of the museum visitors was the pianist from the Costa Concordia.
Some people are just lucky?

I think you're completely missing the point here... it is not Kuoni's decision which country is safe to travel to.... in the end they are doing a business and it is a their discretion to decide what to offer, when and where.


In any case, the EDA (Federal Dep. of Foreign Affairs) keeps their travel recommendations updated and Tunisia is currently described as "Im ganzen Land besteht das Risiko von terroristischen Akten" which doesn't sound too safe and in fact it is supported by the latest developments...


On top of that, since the last developments in Tunisia the EDA gas given green light for tourist to cancel their trips to Tunisia and get full reimbursement from the respective travel agency where the tourist pack was purchased from.
So as you can see it is just business!!

I had a discussion with the man responsible at Kuoni in the meantime. They in reality will try to re-start the Tunis excursions very very soon. They were forced to do something of course. And they in fact regard Tunis in reality to be safe enough for Business. YES, Business is that they will get into the Tunis Business quite soon. AND they are quite confident that their Tunisia Business will be in full swing shortly. They made their experience after the Djerba incident. Bad but not a real catastrophe.


************************************************** *******************************************


and YES, what the terrorists have to learn is that their attacks at so many places around the globe will fail to deter the tourists from travelling --- But of course, any simple Hotel will employ some good guards


example: if I want to see the Eiffel Tower, I will not care about an incident of three weeks before
