Date: May 20/18

The day after arriving in Dakar, we took this half-day city tour with Oumar. It was a great way to get familiar with the many interesting parts of the city. Oumar was great and provided a lot of very helpful information for us to make our stay in Dakar a memorable one. I highly recommend Oumar as a guide. He is very nice, and his enthusiasm for providing information about Dakar and Senegal to visitors was greatly appreciated.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you most sincerely for the outstanding review of your recent tour of Dakar.You were all great company and a pleasure to be with on a memorable journey.I am pleased you all enjoyed the day and the experience and returned home safely with happy memories of your time in Dakar.Bye for now.

I was in Dakar three weeks ago, and never been to West Africa before. I don't speak French, and traveled alone, so was a bit worried. I am so glad I found this ToursByLocals and Oumar as a guide! I contacted him through the website and he immediately responded with a reasonable rate and program. He knows the history of Senegal well, and because he lived in the US, it was nice to have deeper conversations too. I highly recommend Oumar! He is so reliable and fun too! Thank you, Oumar!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Meerim for your kind review and fantastic rating.Glad you enjoyed the tour.You were a pleasure to be with.I hope you can visit again

Oumar was an excellent guide and showed us the city and Goree Island the day we were there in Dakar . He is a thoughtful person and very knowledge about the history of his country. Oumar also displayed a sense of humour which is always appreciated and looked after extremely well. We would recommend his services to anyone going to Dakar and wanting to learn about the history there. Our driver was excellent as well. Thank you for a wonderful day.

Oumar is an absolute saint. His English is perfect and he may as well be the mayor of Dakar. He knows everybody and everyone and always gets to yes. That, coupled with his rich historical honest understanding of his country makes him the perfect guide. He is well worth the money and quite frankly the only way to see Dakar whether you're a solo traveler or a family of four. His recollections about spending 10yrs in Chicago are fascinating as well. Book him early and often!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you my friend Luke for your outstanding review and the 5 star rating.I am pretty lucky I get to meet the best clients in the world.Touring around with LUKE was like touring with your best friend.It was a pleasure serving you and I am pleased to know you enjoyed seeing Dakar and Goree Island as much as I enjoyed showing it.I look forward to future contact with recommendations.Customer satisfaction is ALWAYS my highest priority.Happy traveling!

Tour: #148290, 16-day cultural experience, Dakar, Senegal    
Date: Jul 21/17

Had a wonderful and unique cultural experience over the past couple of weeks with Mr. Oumar. We learned so much about Senegalese culture (and Gambia- although I don't really recommend Gambia). Having the personal guide and opportunities for interaction and an in depth experience made a world of difference. Our guide was excellent for making things we wanted to happen. We said we wanted view of the bridge and we got it. We wanted an extra excursion and we got it. Would definitely recommend Mr Oumar

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you most sincerely for your outstanding and thoughtful review for your recent tour with me. Guiding you guys was an absolute pleasure. Your generosity truly maches your spirit. I was delighted to be able to give you a local insight into our fabulous country. I enjoyed it so much myself. I am pleased you enjoyed every single moment we spent on your 16-day tour to West Africa. Long life and happiness to you all. Best regards Oumar

I was in Senegal for a two-week work trip and had one free day. Oumar gave me a fantastic tour of Dakar, including Goree island. His knowledge of the city and its history is PhD level. He also helped me to find some great gifts for my wife and kids. Not only was the tour interesting and thorough, Oumar is a great guy and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him! I'd certainly recommend hiring Oumar to take you around!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your compliment and your 5 star rating. I am glad you enjoyed as it was an honor and priviledge to show you our beautiful country. Customer satisfaction is my highest priority. Like I said,my tours have a start time but they won't end until you are happy Thank you for choosing me to be your private Guide.

Oumar did a great job creating my itinerary and taking me around Senegal and The Gambia. It was like taking a road trip with friends. Can't recommend him enough. He even met me when my flight landed early in the morning. Would definitely encourage you to reach out to him if you're interested in visiting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Naveen for your kind words and 5 star rating.I am glad we got to see as much as we did in your short stay.It was a pleasure being with you and being able to show you around.We had a ball on the way to the Gambia. Thank you for everything and come back

Uncle Oumar, as we affectionately came to call him, did an excellent job on this tour. From the beginning to the end of the tour he exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond to make us happy. Oumar was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Senegal, he was flexible with the tour and gave us a great mix of tourtist sightseeing and local interactions. While the tour was superb the extras, like airport pickup was an added bonus. Book with Oumar if you want a warm and honest guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you guys for your outstanding,kind words and fantastic rating.It is highly appreciated.I am so pleased that you enjoyed your tours.It was a great pleasure showing you around and thank you for being such nice guests.It was a pleasure and joy helping your family have a wonderful Dakar experience.Just been thinking about JASMIN playing with the unwelcoming goat.What a contrast.Tell my friend JOE that I said HI.
