Please review your overall experience and what your highlights were

There were so many it is difficult to highlight just a few. The visits to the villages, meeting the people, visiting local schools, the masked dances.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Just about impossible to pick one highlight. Every day had something memorable. The friendliness of the people, the fascination of voodoo ceremonies, everyday life in villages, meals prepared by our cook, finding a hot shower, being invited to share a church service with the Celestial Christians, African rhythm and dance. Great trip.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

An amazing trip to get an insight into this secluded part of West Africa. I have learnt so much about the area, it is unbelieveable, the voodoo, village life, slavery, ancient African culutre and history dating back to the 17th century, current African issues. etc. Just mind blowing and an eye-opener.

Tour Leader Name

Noah Katcha

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

The knowledge of Noah was just astonishing. The best guide I have ever had with great personal and social skills as well as caring, attentive, knowlodgable with a great sense of humour.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Do not spend the £260 on the Togo visa via visaswift, as you are only in Togo for 3 days and you can buy a 7 day visa on arrival for 30 euros!! Only one pair of shoes are enough, the walks are very short and very easy. And do not forget your Malorone, it's a high risk area and we got eaten alive by the mosquitoes regardless of DEET.

4 Christine Raines, 11/01/13

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

All the mask dances, especially the last one (Zangdeto). Also the many small, unscheduled encounters with people doing their everyday activities such as panning for gold dust, making salt, distilling liquor, a church service, a wedding etc.
