Reviews from Real Travelers

We had a great experience at the Batik Making Workshop. Ms. Grace's assistant Felicia supervised our experience. She was kind and very accommodating. In addition to myself, my husband (who is in a wheelchair), and my two younger daughters (9 and 5 YO) also participated. She was great and helped us all work through the process and create beautiful batiks. I highly recommend this experience for families and differently-abled people. Additionally, Ms. Grace has a shop full of beautiful clothes; and will do custom clothing. She made a peplum shirt and jumpsuit for my daughters in two days. I happily left with a suitcase full of beautiful clothes from her shop.

Chef Binta was absolutely amazing! It was a small and intimate group and we enjoyed the best fulani styled food on mats. We never tried fulani food before and everything we ate was amazing! She was a great host and recommend it to anyone visiting.
