I loved this tour! I got to see a rarely-seen side of Dakar (to me, and I've lived here for 2+ years) and we even met Youssou Ndour's dad. The art was great and the neighborhood had great energy. The hosts were very open to all questions and I got great photos.

It was a great discovery of the medina. Great art pieces and collaboration that highlight Dakar artistic talents .. every corners remind us that creation can be shared with everyone and should be part of our daily life. Mamadou was welcoming and shared a lots of his knowledge of the neigbhourood and its history. We will recommend the tour to friends.
