I would recommend Andaando to family, friends and anyone else who would listen. If you are considering traveling to Dakar, these are the guys you should select. Very professional and knowledgeable. Dakar isn't typically not appealing to english speaking people, but Ali is fluent in Wolof, French and English. I booked 3 days with him and was able to pick... More

I traveled to Senegal for business and had just a couple of days on my own at the end of the trip for a bit of sigh-seeing. Based on the helpful reviews I read here, I contacted Ali (very last minute) and asked him to set me up with a three-day tour (from hotel to airport) that would give me... More

I am so please with Andaando tours! I am a French teacher here in the States and I just went to Dakar with a group of high school students. Since I was planning this from afar, I needed a tour company who was reliable, cost-effective, and friendly. Ali (our guide) was extremely communicative as I tried to plan the trip... More

Ali and his drivers and guides were a fantastic introduction to Dakar and the surrounds. I was traveling alone and always felt safe. Ali not only provided excellent tour guide services, but also helped with purchases from craftspeople and restaurants to be sure I was paying the proper amount--it was helpful. He'd escort me into my hotels every night and... More

Last week I spent 3 full days with Ali from Andaando and they were the highlight of my week's stay in Senegal. I was a female travelling alone and as such it was critical that I had a guide with whom I felt comfortable and could rely upon, but at the same time my curiosity had to be satisfied -... More

Senegal is known for it's hospitality, and that was shown to me through my tour guides in both Dakar city & Lac Rose through Andaando. They were very nice and knowledgeable of the areas. They speak English, which is great, because my French was horrible. I found the information insightful, and the activities along the way to be fun and... More

We booked the Ile d' Goree tour. Confirmation was late and we were worried guide wouldn't turn up. However Ali was a delight and very proud and knowledgeable of his country and kept us informed and entertained throughout. Also having a trusted host was a comfort for us as we are not experienced of affairs in Africa. Recommend.

We travelled with my sister to Senegal on out christmas-vacation. We had a guide Ali from Andaando who took us from the airport to our hostel (and later back). We also went to the Pink Lake and Goree Island with him. Later he took us to Saly, Bandia Reserve and to Joal/Fadiouth. We were extremely happy with everything: service was... More

As we couldn't find an easy way to visit Bandia on our own we searched for options online and Andaando travel tours came up. Ali was very quick to reply and he gave us few options for tours from which we choose Bandia and the Shell Island. You have a separate guide at the Reserve and at the Island. Ali... More
