  1. Awesome tour of Nouakchott. I only had a limited time in the city and a custom afternoon tour was made so I could still see everything I wanted. The guide was on time and spoke English, which helped me gain more knowledge of the city’s history and culture. Go some good souvenirs. Highlight of the tour was the fishing market and traditional tea in the desert. The guide also helped give advice and information on the other sites in Mauritania that I would be seeing. Highly recommend this tour.

  2. I had a few days in Nouakchott and was doing a search about how to get to and from certain places in the capital when I happened to see a note on tripadvisor from a guide who turned out to be Mohamed Lemine. It was late at night and I contacted him hoping he would see my message and in the morning he did. I am grateful for his quick response and he was able to quickly plan some sightseeing (for the afternoon and evening of that day) given the very short notice. I was pleased with his tour and guidance. He was very accommodating, understanding, offered good advice, reliable and knew alot. He even took me to some spots to get souvenirs I was looking for and advised whether prices were reasonable or not. I recommend him and his tours.

    As fate would have it, we happened to meet up again (not as a tour guide) a few days later in Chinguetti and even there he was willing to advise and offer assistance. And its because of him I managed to get one of my prized possessions/souvenirs from Mauritania in Chinguetti. Thanks!

  3. My wife and I would like to comment on the fine tour Lemine provided of Nouakchott. At all times we felt safe and secure. He was a gracious host. Not only giving a fine narrative of the city, but also explaining the roles and habits of the inhabitants. He provided an interesting history of the city, spoke English fluently, and understands what a tourist wants to see. My wife and I recommend him most highly. He is the tour guide you should use when visiting Nouakchott.

  4. Booked this tour based on recommendations from some friends.
    We got quick answers to our questions and the guide were punctual when picking us up from our hotel. We were four adults and we had chosen the option to use only one car and even if it was a bit cramped it was ok as the stops were frequent.
    You might not have time for everything in Nouakchott in one day, but we managed to do the whole list apart from beach and that was mainly because of the weather. The guide was also helpful finding us postcards (hard to find in Nouakchott) and helping us buy stamps in Mauripost.
    We liked especially camel market, fish market and tea time! But also Zeinart in definitely worth visit. Marché Central we did on our on the next day and it might be best like that.

  5. Lemine was a great host and guide on my recent trip to Nouakchott. While I only had one day in town, we covered many major sights as well as having the ability to spontaneously change plans and adapt as the day went on. Very responsive over email in advance as well as WhatsApp to ensure that everything was in order and on time. Would certainly recommend.

  6. Good communication by e-mail and WhatsApp with Mohamed before I arrived. He did a great job of finding my apartment which has no exact address. Visited all of the sights listed in the tour. Mohamed helped me with changing money and arranging a driver for the next stage of my tour. He took me to his home to experience Mauritanian tea drinking. Would recommend. Good price.
