I saw a review that said voucher for the tour paid in the US was not honored by the tour company. Was this a miscommunication, or something more? Was the voucher purchased through Andaando Travel or from a third party? This is the only negative review I found for the company, so i was a little surprised. Thanks for any information.

I am planning to visit Dakar in late December and would like to have a city tour and visit Goree, Lac Roc, St. Louis and maybe Shell Island. Ali has been recommended, as I will be traveling alone. I have not decided how long I will visit maybe 10-14 days, depends on sites and would love to know what I should not miss. Was recently in South Africa, loved it and now want to see West Africa. P,ease respond with tour ides and prices....thank you so much, Joy
