Full-Day DAKAR city / GOREE Island Tour

24 reviews
As you choose this tour, the number one thing on your mind is: why should I use this GUIDE instead of the others?<br>Well, I have lived in the USA for over 12 years and all of my tours are SOLELY conducted in ENGLISH.<br>It is not easy to really experience Dakar on your own. You may take a standard city tour. Sure, you will see a lot but, in all probability, the Dakar experience will escape you without the expertise of a knowledgeable guide to show you the hidden spots. As I take you on this popular tour combination, my whole goal is not to make you love DAKAR the way I do, but to make you understand it in order to turn your visit into a long-lasting memory. However, you cannot visit Dakar without seeing Goree island. The last place African Slaves saw before being shipped across the ocean never to return. A visit to the Door-Of-No-Return in the Slave House will give you a sense of why GOREE is the most visited place in the country. <br>PS: REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR PASSPORT WITH YOU.

Great guided tour of the lighthouse. The restaurant is located on what looks like a huge deck with beautiful ocean views. Great food and fun music and dancing after!

This is a fairly nice walk on a path surrounded by lush vegetation up to a lovely bar and restaurant at the top. We only had drinks so I can’t comment on the food but the spot is lovely and the view is unbeatable

from the base of lighthouse we took the shuttle to the top The views were stunning and one should visit during sunset After that it went downhill like the sunset The lighting was so poor we struggled to read the menu. Even the waitress had to use her own light to take the order The drinks took more than half hour to arrive which was incredible considering there were only 8 tables occupied that day Seafood Starters were ok. The mains were a disaster The prawns was mushy and not fresh Fish was also overcooked and not fresh Chicken was edible, noodles were above average but lacking in ingredients. Beef was also overcooked. The service was inattentive and slow They brought 7 sets of cutlery even though there were 8 of us and we waited over 15 mins for the 8th set. Most service staff stood around looking bored and disinterested the whole night Some training is recommended.

Response from Phare-Des-Mamelles-D, Responsable relations publiques at Les Mamelles Lighthouse
Responded Oct 12, 2019
Bonjour Beachbummer75, Nous sommes désolés de votre mauvaise expérience au Phare et nous vous remercions pour votre retour. Pour l'éclairage, sachez que nous sommes un restaurant Lounge d'ou le très faible éclairage en terrasse et plus éclairée à l intérieur. C est ce qui marque l'ambiance du Phare notamment sa scène musicale. Aussi, il peut arriver qu'il y ai des soucis sur la nourriture ou le service mais jusqu'à présent vous faites partie des rares qui se sont plaints (50% d'habitués en frequentation) et nous en sommes sincèrement desolés. Nous vous invitons à revenir pour remédier à ce mauvais souvenir. Sachez que si vous decidez de revenir et que vous n'êtes pas satisfaits, dans notre politique clients, nous n'hesitons pas à changer le plat si il ne convient pas ou faire un geste commerciale en cas de soucis en service... Nous restons à l'l'écoute. Encore Merci
