We have recently returned from Gambia and cannot recommend Arch enough. We went on 3 trips and can honestly say that the guys at Arch made our holiday. Abdul was a pleasure to deal with in the office when booking the trips, drink offered every time we went and such a courteous man. We did 4 trips in 1 day... More

We did the 4 tours in 1 day and it was excellent. I would highly recommend both the tour and Arch Tours. The tour was packed full of activities without feeling rushed. The guides were excellent, really informative, so much so that they answered my questions as I thought of them without me having to ask. They gave so much... More

We did the 4 in 1 tour which was brilliant. It is a long day from 8.00am to 6.00pm, but there were plenty of refreshment breaks along the way. You get to see and learn so much and realise how resourceful the Gambians are. The market is a complete eye opener. The guides that accompanied us were really friendly and... More

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.
