The lesser-known West African destinations of Guinea and Guinea-Bissau are a dream for any traveller searching for a unique experience. These two countries have no shortage of cultural and music shows, markets filled with local products, and beautiful landscapes.
Our tour will start in Guinea. Of the many things in store, we will travel off-road to Niagassola, an ancient village that many consider the home of music and the Balafon, a popular African musical instrument. Another musical show awaits you in Kankan, Guinea’s second-largest city. You will witness even more cultural experiences in the colonial town of Dalaba, as well as tour the luscious Chutes de Kambadaga. Afterwards, we will take a trip across the border to Guinea-Bissau, where you can explore the history and traditions of the coastal capital Bissau.
A tour of Guinea and Guinea-Bissau is the perfect getaway for anybody who enjoys African music, colonial history and architecture, and endless vistas of green landscapes. We run this tour yearly, and spots fill up quickly, so book today!
We will run this tour once a year in January.
The tour will line up with our tour to Mali so there is the option of taking both back to back.
Visas are required for both Guinea and Guinea Bissau. We will provide support documentation for both.
The price for this tour is £1,649.
