Great trip with Ali G, thank to Peter and Martina for there company. Seen the stones on the 50d note and the hippos in the river, monkeys on baboon island only thing we did not see was croc's. Ferry crossing was different as Banjul ferry not working so went up country. Lots of travelling but worth it.

From the free drink in the office when booking, to the informative guides I can't really fault these guys. I did 2 days, Senegal and 4-tours in one day, and despite my initial scepticism both were incredible value for money. Dembo (sorry if I've spelt that wrong) was always answering our questions, pointing out things otherwise missed and on a... More

Agressive sales and empty promisses. They cancelled our trip, after we had payed half the price, the night before, just with a simple note in the hotel. We had asked them explicitly if the tour would run, 3 times. Very bad experience.

I cannot thank Abdul and his team enough. We have just come back from a week in The Gambia 5 days relaxing and two on tours booked through Arch. I heard about Arch through Trip Advisor and read the positive reviews so contacted them a month before heading out. Communication was splendid and advice on such things as vaccinations, no... More

We ended up doing 3 tours with Arch Tours during our one week stay in Gambia and we loved every minute of every one. Firstly we did the 4 in 1, we had Ali as our guide and his trusty side kick, Armstrong driving, both were amazing, friendly, funny and knowledgeable. We were kept well hydrated through the day and...
