What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Mbour with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Mbour. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

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.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

Fascinating! This is an experience that you would never have even if covid wasn’t preventing travel. Was great to be in the thick of the celebrations, watching everybody having a great time. I’m sure every family has ‘aunties’ like that. 😄

What a treat to be invited to a wedding party in Senegal! Thank you for this amazing opportunity and thank you to the couple and guests for allowing us to join. Thanks for sharing photos of the elusive bride and groom after the tour, they looked beautiful and very happy
