Oumar was an incredible tour guide. As three Americans visiting Senegal for the first time, we learned so much from spending the day with him, including a few wolof lessons! Oumar was knowledgeable, passionate, and funny. We explored the safari and Pink Lake, followed by an amazing tour of a nearby village, where we interacted with locals and learned about their village. I highly recommend Oumar - he is an A+ guide who goes to great lengths to ensure you have an unforgettable experience. Jerejef Oumar!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your sincere and warm review.I am glad you enjoyed the tour as much as I did.Best wishes to all of you.

Our visit to Bandia was wonderful. The opportunity to see animals such as rhinos, giraffes, and ostriches in a natural setting was very memorable. And of course, those monkeys! Watch your lunch! Oumar was our guide to Bandia, and he was very helpful in providing information about the reserve. On our way to and from the Bandia reserve, Oumar shared information about the culture of Dakar and Senegal, which was very interesting. I highly recommend Oumar for tours of Dakar and other parts of Senegal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's very kind of you to say these nice things about the tour I gave you,and I am happy you enjoyed your day so much.You reminded me of why I love what I do.Hope to see you again. Best wishes.

I traveled to Dakar on official business and had just a day to experience all that I could. Choosing Oumar was a great decision! Not only did he message me and call me in the US prior to my visit, he made it a priority to arrange a day that I wanted. My flight time and hotel were not known until the day I arrived and yet Oumar was there at my hotel with his driver, making the pick up effortless. Although I was only there for a day, it was wonderful and I would recommend Oumar for your trip to Dakar!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much for your review and your 5 star rating.So glad you enjoyed the tour.I wish you had more time to interact with the local population.You can see that I enjoy what I do and having an easy-going tour,makes it just that more enjoyable. Please come back again

Oumar was both extremely friendly and knowledgeable. As we made our way out of the city he gave us a great insight into the Senegalese culture and traditions. His English is excellent, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to get to know Dakar and indeed Senegal better.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very kind review and your 5 star rating.It was such a great pleasure to be with you guys.It was such a great joy showing great people like DAN and ABDUL our great city. Last but not least,thank you for using TOURSBYLOCALS and for choosing me to show you around and for accepting my invitation to experience our culture.
The day we spent with Oumar on October 10th was really nice and momorable. First, we were in the Bandia Animal Sanctuary and afterwards in Dakar where we saw the most important spots. Oumar is a very pleasant, positive and very knowing person who liked to provide us with all kind of information of his country. Furthermore, he was very flexible and personal wishes can be realised without problem. The kids wanted to take a short bath in the sea so that we finished our tour with this refresh. Thanks a lot!
