Full-Day DAKAR city / GOREE Island Tour
As you choose this tour, the number one thing on your mind is: why should I use this GUIDE instead of the others?
Well, I have lived in Chicago for over 12 years and all of my tours are SOLELY conducted in ENGLISH.
It is not easy to really experience Dakar on your own. You may take a standard city tour. Sure, you will see a lot but, in all probability, the Dakar experience will escape you without the expertise of a knowledgeable guide to show you the hidden spots. As I take you on this popular tour combination, my whole goal is not to make you love DAKAR the way I do, but to make you understand it in order to turn your visit into a long-lasting memory. However, you cannot visit Dakar without seeing Goree island. The last place African Slaves saw before being shipped across the ocean never to return. A visit to the Door-Of-No-Return in the Slave House will give you a sense of why GOREE is the most visited place in the country.
