Tour company in Mali

We just returned back from a month travelling with Hogon tour. We went 5 countries tour. Started in Mali-Burkina-Benin-Togo-Accra. We did`t go to Timbaktu, but traveled to Dogon country in Mali. Our guides were very knowledgeable. They organized for us Dogon mask dance, we also interacted a lot with a people in villages. Our guides could interpret local language to english fluently. We slept under the stars, swam in waterfalls, enjoyed freshly cooked lunches for us by our guide and driver, visited places that were off beaten path. Everywhere we felt secure and very well watched over. We become friends with driver and guide from Hogon tour. Big thanks to Seydoy, who put it all together paying attention to every detail of tour and Mohamadou and Malik who were with us a whole month and helped us to see and experience best of Africa. Very reasonable priced. Very good , reliable, serious tour company in Mali. www.hogontour.net

3. Re: Tour company in Mali

We toured Mali for two weeks in January this year (2014). We organised a tailor made private tour with Ibrahim Kassogue of Papillon Reizen tour company ( http://www.papillonreizen.com) a company run by Ibrahim and his Dutch (not Belgian :) partner Monique. They can tailor make a tour to suit your interests - Dogon trekking, pinasse and camping trips, visiting villages, etc etc. You get in touch with them and they sort out a tour which meets your needs, give you a quote and you pay them when you get to Mali (we paid in Euros). Our tour included a mix of public transport, hotels, private cars, pinasse trip and camping. Breakfasts were usually included. It was a great way to see Mali. We really enjoyed it. Ibrahim showed us a lot of Malian life we would have not accessed or experienced by ourselves. We loved going to villages and meeting people, especially the children. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Our tour included a mix of public transport, hotels, private cars,a pinasse trip down the Niger river and camping. Breakfasts were usually included. Ibrahim even got tickets for an inhouse concert by the renowned Malian singer, Oumou Sangere!! It was a great way to see Mali. We really enjoyed it. Ibrahim showed us a lot of Malian life we would have not accessed or experienced by ourselves. We loved going to villages and meeting people, especially the children. We felt very very safe the whole time we were in Mali, despite the recent problems and the over the top travel warnings. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

8. Re: Tour company in Mali

Isnt it obvious that the OP is a bogus post ???? All of his/her posts are promoting the tour company and the english grammer is poor. you can usually tell when its fake as they never will tell you how much it costs. Also why are people replying with 2 posts ?

our web address is www.hogontours.net, I see that the one who applied for the above comment forgot to put "s" in tours so that you can not go to the page of the link in question.

Thank you for your visit
