Sogui W.

Mbour, Senegal

Hi dear travelers, Grant me just a few hours to show you the hidden wonders of such a so culturally rich country called: Senegal, or the land of hospitality.

With my company, for sure, this tour will be forever engraved in your memory and will be completely different from the ones you did before! One simple reason, I know how to do it!

My name is Sogui , a really very African name which is still echoing around the world, because of my proficiencies, my honesty and my legendary smile. If you're looking for a gifted and knowledgeable English and Spanish speaking tour guide, I'm the right choice. I'm not saying that, just to speak highly of myself, but these are the testimonies of the people I've already toured in Senegal and the Gambia.

I've got so many reasons to give, you don't know what you're loosing in not booking my services.
First I'm very fluent in English and Spanish in a french speaking country, where the great majority speaks french. This also can be certified by my university studies rewarded by a certificate of specialization in American literature and civilization.

Moreover as an African, I'm privileged and entitled to talk about some facets of our so rich culture: polygamy, marriage, circumcision, initiation, naming ceremony, the meaning of tattoos, and so on.
Some of my colleagues call me the walking encyclopaedia, the others call me professor. Because for them I was made for teaching. In my opinion, what is important is to serve my country as an ambassador of tourism, to promote it with love, knowledge, kindness, honesty, smiles and availability.
In all my services, quality is the keyword. And will be perceived first in I , myself, the vehicles, the restaurants.

If you have also partiality for history, the fauna and the flora, my tours are the right ones for you. Even for Birdwatchers , Senegal has 660 species of birds. With me let's find out birds such as:the abyssinian roller, the lizzard buzzard, the cardinal woodpecker, the red throated bee eater, the nightjars, the blue chested bee eater, the Egyptian plover, the hammerkop, the shikra, the bateleur , the carmine bee eater , the african harrier hawk, theafrican finfoot, the grey krestel , the african brown snake eagle, the klaas cuckoo, the dark chanting goshawk, and so on.
Moreover, my experience of at least 18 years as an English and Spanish speaking guide is another reason for you dear "friends " to join my tours , meaning I know how to take good care of my clients.

Even as a second year student, I was doing some off shore tours in Dakar. After being licensed as an English and Spanish speaking tour guide. I started taking the African-American around Senegal and to a small Gambian village named Juffureh, which is Kunta Kinteh forefathers origin, within the Black history month.
Later on, I went to work with all the biggest European Tour Operators present in Senegal.
When booking my services, be sure in advance that you're in good hands, and a total immersion in the local culture is guaranteed

When visiting, we'll take our time to enjoy every single minute and every single site, we'll not be running as some Tour Operators do . You'll be given the maximum time to explore and enjoy the sites.

Please keep your guide books in your bags, because What I'm saying will not be found in any guide book.
With me you're sure not to throw you money out of the window. At the end you'll realize how friendly and knowledgeable I was!!!

Welcome to Senegal!!
Your satisfaction is priority

A Recent Review of this guide

I had an outstanding experience on my 5-day tour with Sogui W. Sogui is an experienced travel professional with excellent English, and interpretive knowledge of everything on our route. Our itinerary ran like clockwork; everything went perfectly. We got off the beaten track to see the Senegambian stone circles--an amazing experience. Our days were always punctual, never rushed, and spent in comfort with a professional car and driver arranged by Sogui. Overall an excellent tour!
