The whole tour was a highlight. I found the people and places fascinating. The village dances and festivities were great as we felt so included and special.
How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Tour leader was proficient and effective. He knew the score. When bribes or incentives were required he knew how to organise it. When there was a chain of command he knew who to speak to. He was well respected and revered by the locals and that meant we got treated very well and had access to what we wanted to see and do.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Go with the flow. get involved, dance a bit. You cannot make a fool of yourself the local people will love you for the participation. Don't view voodoo as a dark art from harry potter. It is a way of life and creates a good base for social morals and standards.
Do you have anything else to add?
I loved it and would go back tomorrow. It was expensive but I've not done anything or seen anything like this ever. I now fancy returning for the longer trip including Burkina Faso.
