I always enjoy Alioune's tours and really like the way he interacts with locals. Gave a lot of information and has a charming way to introduce us into his country & culture :-) Thank you very much.

This was my 2nd time doing this particular tour to see the city of Dakar. I must say Alioune packed a lot more information on the history of the city and the significance of the area than in the previous tour. These efforts are well noted and much appreciated. I love the passion that Aluoune shows for every area I’ve tour with him on.

Alioune did so well and worked so hard to combat the poor signal trouble. He was informative and relaxed and had so many fascinating facts and information to share with us.

This is my favorite kind of tour - the ones where the guide just walks through the town showing local daily life. We saw beautifully weaved clothing and Alioune talked to the weaver a bit, the locals joined in the fun on the sidewalks and my kids loved seeing people carrying large packs on their heads. Learning some history about the city was very interesting, too. Thanks for another great tour!
