Oumar was an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge about his city and it's attractions. His English is impeccable as he has lived in the US for a long time. It was a pleasure visiting the city with him and feeling perfectly at home. Highly recommended.

One of the best tours we've ever had. Working on limited days in country, & challenging time constraints, Oumar was able to accomplish everything on our wist list, plus he managed to add much more that we thought wouldn't be time for. His knowledge & passion for his country helped us gain a much deeper understanding than a lot of guides we've had in the past that seem to be reading a script. If you want an authentic Senegal experience Oumar is definitely the guide for you. Looking fwd to our return visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Trevius,thank you for your great testimonial.I am so happy that you all had a real good time with us.I am glad we got to see as much as we did in your short stay.Thank you one more time for your kind words and your generosity.Please pass on the good word that SENEGAL is a great place to vacation in.

Oumar provided a customized tour for me and my friend that fit into our schedule and took into account the things we wanted to see while in Senegal. I also explained that I was interested in culture and architecture and sought Oumar's suggestion as to a day trip outside of Dakar and he suggested a visit to the Great Mosque in Touba which was perfect. His English skills were great and we had two different drivers over the course of the tour and both were adept drivers and personable. Oumar was great!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to leave such a marvellous review.I thoroughly enjoyed showing you and your friend around and delighted you both enjoyed the day.Thank you for the thoughtful review and thank you times ten.

Oumar is an excellent tour guide! He is fluent in English, which was very helpful for our group visiting from tUnited States. He treated us like family and we trusted him completely. He was open to any and all questions we had and was very open to sharing Senegalese culture with us. He was extremely flexible with planning and went above and beyond in every aspect. The level of service we received exceeds the mere "tour guide" title. Oumar is truly a curator of experiences. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks to you Mitzie for your 5 star rating and your lovely review.There is no better way to put it together.Your group was awesome and I really got a kick out of being surrounded by very beautiful,professional and successful young women.I hope this trip will leave marks on your consciousness,your heart and your body.I also hope your pictures turned out well and give you great memories of our beautiful country.

Oumar was a terrific partner in carrying out our art project in Dakar. He selected the prefect venue for our work, and he was an enthusiastic and effective partner on the project. His knowledge of the city and its people, and his great connections with the local authorities, were evident throughout our day together. Plus he provided very interesting insights into Senegal's current environment as well as its rich history. We recommend Oumar highly and know you will have a great experience with his help

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a lovely review! Thank you brian for taking time to offer and post such a positive review.It is much appreciated.Although challenging,it was a real pleasure to host this special *WORDS*project and truly enjoyed every single moment we spent together with ANN.Wishing you continued enjoyable travels and a safe return back to the United States.

I recommend Oumar: * Built a custom tour, incl. Xing the Mauritanian border (which is not easy). * He has a partner driver (Pape), and several local guides as needed. * He insisted on picking me up and dropping me off at the airport for free, outside of the paid tour dates. He said he didn't want to risk my trip starting off poorly with a bad taxi experience. * His English is excellent * He has lived outside of Senegal, so he can compare Senegal when explaining things. * I felt very comfortable with him

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Davis for your kind feedback and 5-star rating.I am so glad you enjoyed the tour.It was a great pleasure to meet you and show you around.I would love to receive another outstanding review of this kind.Because your review came so fast,you must be enthousiastic about my services.Glad that you enjoyed my expertise.

I had a fantastic tour of Dakar with Oumar! I can't wait to return to Senegal and work with him again. His warmth, knowledge, openness, and sense of humor are wonderful. You can't truly understand Dakar and Senegal without having a long chat with a local, and Oumar is the host of your dreams. He is organized, punctual, and delightful, and he works with a lovely driver with a nice car. Oumar goes above and beyond to make sure you get everything possibly out of your time in Dakar. Don't hesitate to book!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your 5 star rating and outstanding review.It was such a great pleasure to get to know you.You are such a wonderful person and I would like to express my appreciation for the tour opportunity.I am so glad you enjoyed the tour and one more time,thank you for your endless generosity.Your appreciation was highly reciprocated.

Oumar gave us a wonderful tour of Dakar. He was able to tailor an experience for our interests, and he was happy to take detours and tell us about other things that weren't on the schedule. He arrived early to pick us up, and he was very warm and enthusiastic. He also speaks perfect English. The car provided was comfortable and the driver was safe and friendly. In all I would recommend the experience to anyone who wants to explore Dakar!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Dan for your review and your 5 star rating.It was such a great pleasure to show you around.It was the easiest tour to conduct because you guys were very cooperative.Thank you so much for everything you have done for us.

a 5 star rating is almost not enough for the service, kindness and professionalism we received from Oumar! We constantly travel around the world for our work and very rarely meet someone who is willing to go out of their way to offer more than is expected. From planning the trip, making arrangements with hotels, picking the route, Oumar helped us on every step of the way. And last but not least, something that is rarely rated, just general kindness and good spirit. If you travel to Senegal get this guy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Words are not enough to express my feelings but I will just say you made my day.This was the only time I was away from home for 5 day and never missed home because it was like a family.You guys had been very cooperative,very understanding and fun to be with.You never wanted me to in your time,you were always in my time and I want to thank you from deep down my heart for everything you have done for my team.Please tell John and Mr *P* that I already miss them.

Oumar was very much the consummate professional. Communication with him via email was smooth and easy, with prompt responses to each of my emails. Oumar is punctual, friendly, and well informed. His love for his country (Senegal) and his city (Dakar) was evident and resulted in a great two day trip. I would recommend him without hesitation when visiting Senegal.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Edward for your kind review and your wonderful words.Thank you for making it easy for me to deliver an exceptional tour experience.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Oumar (and his team) were superb. He knows his city and his tour well, but also a great guy, funny and relaxed. Equal top for the best ever guide I have used, he is that good. A great time in a great city and Lac Rose is not to be missed. (Thank you Oumar, Asta and Sané).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you for your kind words Mr Pete.Your generosity is out of proportion.It was like you were part of the family and you made it easy for Asta to learn quick.I am glad you enjoyed your visit and your appreciation was highly reciprocated.The windows are outstanding now.Thank you

Oumar did an excellent tour yesterday. I will recommend him 100%. His English is fluent and he is very knowledgeable and punctual.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you my friend for your review and your 5 star rating.I was literally between a rock and a hard stone but in the end it created a happy client.My only mission and unique vision is the customer's satisfaction.

Absolutely excellent in every way. I was coming to Senegal on business and Oumar took care of everything; from swift progress through immigration to superb inside knowledge of the local history and culture. I have been to Senegal before but this time was so different. I left with such a clearer taste and understanding of the people and country. A guide is always good, but Oumar offers much more. I expect to return to the country for work and will without doubt be booking Oumar again. 10 out of 10!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Richard for your kind words.My number one goal is to always be ready to make sure my clients get what they want and more than they expect by being aware that time constraints matters a great deal for both of us.I do wish we could have covered more of Dakar.I am glad your time in Dakar went well.I do appreciate our time together as much as you do. My best regards to your wife and children. Again,I am very appreciative of your 5 star rating.
