We came to The Gambia in April 2016, one friend having being a few times and having a relationship with a local myself and my other friend came as a spur of the moment holiday for her 30th. We used Arch Tours for the 4 in tour to see more of The Gambia and I'm glad we did. Booking the... More

We did the 4-in-1 tour with Arch Tours in February 2016. I've never been on such a comprehensive tour or done so much in one day; we loved it! We visited Serrekunda market (an experience in itself!), a compound, a school, a crocodile sanctuary, a lodge on the river where we had tea and pastries, lunch on Paradise beach (delectable)...

This was our second trip to Gambia and having had such a brilliant experience with Arch Tours before we were in contact with them before we flew out. We arranged with Abdul to pick us from our hotel on our first morning and he arrived right on time and took us back to his office. We booked two trips that... More

We travelled to Gambia for the first time in May and, after a little research, decided that Arch Tours could take us to places other than the beach. What we didn't realize before travelling was that this was off-season and the tourist areas - and hence the number of tourists looking to go on tours - were very quiet. This... More

Long day, but well looked after. The journey in Senegal to and from park was so fascinating, very little tourism in the country. The truck we travelled in from Senegal throughout was most certainly not for the elderly, Difficult to get on and off also very uncomfortable throughout the day. The park reception area was beautiful. Trip through park was... More

Arch-Tours, Owner at Arch Tours, responded to this review

we thank you for your excellent review and sincerely regret the fact that the vehicle used on that day was not the least comfortable for the elderly as you rightly mentioned.this is due the fact that our vehicles were not allowed into senegal because of the border closure .just like everyone else we relied on the game reserve to provide...

Chose Arch Tours for our trip to Senegal and Safari because we always try to contribute to the local economy by using Gambian companies wherever possible. Had read a lot about the great reputation of this company and was not disappointed. The attention to detail of the staff where second to none. The trip was a wonderful experience for myself... More

As a party of 7, 5 adults and a 12 yr old and a 5 yr old, we did the 4 in 1 tour. We had Bob and Fatou as guides and Tom for a driver. A brilliant day, as always. All of us except the 5 yr old have done this trip before and I have to say your... More

Because of the many good reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to do book our tours with Arch Tours. We contacted the company for the first time approximately one month before our holiday. The communication went by email and everything went really smooth. We got into contact with the manager, Mr. Abdul Raman. He suggested to come and pick us up... More

Really enjoyed this lazy day cruise with Arch tours. We went with Bob and Fatou to Denton bridge and as we we're the only two to go with Arch tours we just had Fatou with us and I think she enjoyed it as much as we did. The food was nice and the staff and crew were really friendly. Would... More

Me and my husband booked the 4 in 1, and we totally recommend it! 4 in 1 is called like that probably because it can make you feel like you have done 4 days in 1. We were picked up early by Bob and Tom, and as no one else booked it, we had the tour for ourselves.They were really... More
