I met Modou before and he offered to help me with my research project. He showed me around in his village and introduced me to some ladies, which really helped me. Afterwards, he showed me the eco camp, what looked really nice. Modou thank you for your help and hope to see you soon.

My wife went on some of the tours and came back enthusiastic every time. Great bird and nature watching, plenty of toime for photography, her great hobby. Knowledgable guide, excellent English, and other than many other tours, no extras!

Tour Gambia is a company that you can trust. They always deliver as promised, but more important, Mamadou Barry and his staff were always kind and nice with the group, buying flowers and presents to the ladies, being very gentle with the group and happy during the whole route. Definetly if you plan to go Gambia I would recommend 100% Tour Gambia

Early in the morning Modou came to pick us up in his car afterwards we spend the whole day visiting the North bank and Kunta Kinte island (a very impressive tour). Modou told us about everything we saw and took good care of us during the whole trip. We would highly recommend going on one of the trips with Modou!

We undertook three trips with Tour Gambia and cannot recommend their services highly enough.
First, we went on a 3 night/4 day “Up Country” trip along the north bank of the River Gambia as far as Janjanbureh, returning along the south bank. Tour Gambia’s strap line is “In Depth Culture and Wildlife”, and that’s exactly what we got! The trip was a feast for all five senses. See that! Taste this! Smell this! Regular stops in the 4x4 to view wildlife spotted beside the road, regular stops at markets, numerous boat trips along the river and through the mangroves, trips into local schools and houses. Local food and drinks throughout. And throughout, in the company of our extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide, Madou Barry, and driver, Smiler.
Next, a short afternoon trip to the fishing village of Tanji, to view the smoke houses and fishing boats coming in. Again, a feast for all senses!
Finally, a day trip south into Senegal, to Karfountine, a fishing village, and the island of Hilil, to take another trip through the mangroves. Again, a fantastic day out in the company of Madou and Smiler.
We know Madou and Tour Gambia are working on plans and itineraries for more ambitious trips.
We can’t wait to return to Gambia to experience more of this wonderful country in the company of Madou and Smiler.
