One Day in Dakar and Gore Island
, Mar 2020
We had an excellent day in Dakar and Goree island, our host Peter was very knowledgeable and happy to take any questions. We started with a comprehensive tour of the sites of Dakar city including the hugely impressive African Renaissance Monument and the nearby mosque and beach area, the fisherman's market, local artist huts and a number of major buildings. The later part of the tour was to Goree Island - a very nice island with a very sad past. The island has many locals trying to sell you something, and a good selection to buy. We had a good lunch on the island, and Peter our host was very good. A minor downside was the long wait for the ferry in both directions - the ferry itself was busy, boisterous and full of friendly locals directing you to their shops. A great tour and good value for money!

A great guide!

The Dakar city tour and trip to Goree Island was amazing. Pierre, the guide, met me at my hotel exactly at the appropriate time. He was actually there earlier and waited for me. The view of Dakar was excellent and the guide provided very good history and lessons about the people, the culture, and the religion. We visited the largest Mosque and also the largest statue in Dakar - the African Renaissance - which was breathtaking. The other major landmarks of the city were also impressive. He answered all of my questions and was easy to be with. Next was the trip to Goree Island. Pierre helped me enter the boat first and get the best seat facing the island when we approached. He gave me tips for how to handle the panhandlers and was able to secure a quiet and private viewing of the House of Slaves for me. Pierre was amazing. This was by far the best tour I’ve been on in a long time.

I had a good tour of Dakar City and Goree island. My guide Hussaini was very knowledgeable about history and geography of the area. We were able to visit the important places in the city and could have a flavor of Dakar. The visit to Goree island was memorable, it gives us the message that we may forgive, but let us not forget ! The traditional Senegalese lunch on Goree was a bonus !

Collected and dropped off as scheduled. Three stops 1. African Renaissance Monument 2. Fisherman Market 3. Goree Island. Time spent at each stop was well paced. The stop at Goree Island included a filling lunch (drinks are not included). Drove by the Presidential Palace, Independence Square, Old French Cathedral and the train station and the drive through Sandeka Market. The tour was packed with many other sights to see along the way.
Excellent Englist-speaking trip

Loved the trip with Mr. Diallo and would recommend him highly for English--the trip was not just beautiful but also very educational. Goree was a highlight for me.
