Cheaper than the tours with the travel organisation (tui). We went on the roots trip to james island and the surroundings. We had a superb and relaxing day and exellent guidance bij Muhammed. To banjul in a 4x4 landrover, then on a small charming old boat (big motorboat) to the island and its surroundings. Since we were in a small... More

The kunta kinteh trip is a long 3 to 4 hour boat trip which can be arduous. An adequate lunch is provided. Once the... More
