Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Having lived in several African countries I really enjoyed the spontaneity, indeed almost chaos of this trip. It brought back many memories of life in an amazing continent. Well done Alune!

Sorry this review is late. I really enjoyed your fascinating tour - I've never had the chance to go to Senegal and it's so different from where I live in England. I love seeing what people's everyday lives are like in far away places. Loved the boats and how busy everywhere was!
