all highlights in Nouakchot
Casserini_M, Dec 2022
Mohamed was a great guy, he picked me up from the hotel outside of Nouakchot and took time to show me all the important points in Nouakchott. We even took time to buy something for himself at the market and we had a lunch together. His English was good and I like to be flexible with him about points that I prefered to see. Also to mention that he was a good and a save driver, which is important in this city....
Excellent Tour

The Perfect Day in Nouakchott.
Joshua_W, Jan 2022
Traveled solo from the USA for tourism (January 2022). I booked this private tour of Nouakchott at the last minute (within one week of arrival) and was lucky that Mr. Hassen (who runs the tour) was available. He texted me a couple of days in advance of the tour and shared the specific itinerary with me. I was able to customize it very easily to my preferences of what I like to see and do. Not all guides are so thoughtful, but it takes a lot of pressure off of wondering what your day will be like. Mr. Hassen was both the guide and driver. Spoke excellent English. Was very friendly, culturally adept, and kind. My specific tour was all day (9:30am -- 6:30pm) but he's flexible and will customize it. There's nothing that I felt was missing from Nouakchott to see, it was a comprehensive tour. I would 100% recommend this tour and Mr. Hassen to my friends and to anyone who finds themselves visiting Mauritania.
