About the tour

In Senegal, the local and village communities who live from artisanal fishing find the opportunity to practice from time to time fun races aboard their boats. I therefore invite you to discover this pirogue race where they seek to save their honor, oath of bravery and fighting spirit.

Another fantastic high energy tour. Great to see the local people all coming together for the boat race and to be on the boat part of it.

All of Alune's tours are unique, fun and enlightening and this was no exception. He is such a great character and Senegal is wonderful.

Our tour today with Alune Diane was terrific fun as we boat raced in Mbour. It was fascinating to see a far off country and be part of their action. Alune was very together as we raced on the ocean and he had to prevent his gimbal from getting wet and he even changed boats on the water. I'd love a walking tour of Mbour or other town/city/village in Senegal to learn more about their culture and see their everyday life. Thanks so much!

This was my first tour with Alune and it was absolutely amazing. He was so enthusiastic and the pure joy of the entire village when they all joined in on his boat races was perfection. I have never laughed and smiled so hard on a tour. I will definitely tour with again.
