Oumar is deeply knowledgeable about Senegal and eager to share what he knows. We visited several very interesting sites and came away with a rich cultural experience. We were a group of 4, ranging in age from mid-20's to upper 60's and we all felt grateful that we found Tours By Locals and Oumar. It's hard to pick out a favorite moment, but perhaps it was the ride around Langue de Barbarie in a local fishing boat.
