I can't recommend Arch Tours enough. We booked online prior to leaving the UK. The itinerary well explained by Abdul when we visited the office to pay. We were picked up on time, friendly and informative guides. The excursion was fascinating: from the ferry trip across the river, stopping for breakfast, watching life at the Gambia/Senegal border, and a quick... More

We booked our tours at the main office on the strip. Very friendly and helpful. I emailed before I left England to check prices and Abdul emailed straight back and was very helpful also answering my queries about what currency to bring etc. We booked to go to the Fathala game reserve in Senegal and also to do the 4...

Met by Abdul at the hotel, he drove us to his office, discussed our requirements, booked, done & dusted. No hard sell, no pushing to book other trips, impeccable manners & service. We took the 4 tours in a day, fabulous from start to finish. You just have to do this trip, you won't regret it.

We went on the 4 in 1 tour which is great introduction to the Gambian way of life. From the busy market, to a primary school we saw a wide variety of aspects of local life. The tour packs in a lot of activities but never feels rushed and cold drinks are provided at regular intervals throughout the day. The... More

We traveled with Arch tours to Senegal and the Fathala game reserve. Picked up early from our hotel either Demba or Buba or both were with us all the time. After the ferry trip which is an amazing experience on its own we stopped off road for a delicious breakfast. In the reserve we found all the animals, brilliant to... More

We had been recommended to this company by someone who had visited The Gambia a couple of months ago. We went to Abdul's (the owner) office where we were immediately given a bottle of ice cold water each. He told us about the tours and there was absolutely no pressure. We said we'd think about it and come back the... More

It's often said that if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Reading all of these rave reviews may lead you to think that this is one of those cases and that there's someone out there making this all up. Not so. We have been to The Gambia twice and have been out with Arch Tours several... More

I booked this tour by email for myself, partner and our 6 year old, from England after reading reviews on trip advisor. Abdul met me as arranged at my hotel two days after arriving in The Gambia to inform me of pick up times for our tour the following day. He was prompt and extremely professional. I have to say...
