We chose the sunset cruise with arch tours which consisted of 3hrs on the river boat plus dinner at the beautiful Lamin Lodge (it's like a giant tree house.) There wasn't much wildlife to see in the river nor any women collecting oysters which was a bit dissapointing but can't be helped. Pelican island was pretty cool though. The music... More

The 4 in one tour was great. A great flavour of the place. Be sure to have pens etc for the people if you can. The crocs were superb but frightened me to bits to be so close. Unbelievable fishing port for so many reasons. It was huge, smelly, a must see, but hard to see the difficult lives lived.

We can not recommend Arch Tours highly enough! We booked three trips prior to our arrival in The Gambia seeing as the reviews were so good! Our trips really suited our first trip to the country. The Breakfast with the birds is worthwhile for any birders, it included a boat trip around the creek with an expert bird watcher who... More

we arranged a meeting with the boss, Abdul, to come to our hotel. He did not show up. When we went to his office, we had to drag an apology out of him. That is a bad start to a business relationship, Abdul.
