Tour Guide Modou Barry Tour Guide Modou Barry

A very warm welcome to The Gambia – the smiling coast of West Africa – from your personal, professional tour guide Modou Barry.

The Gambia, the smallest country on mainland Africa, is just six hours away from major European destinations and being on the same time zone you will not experience any jet lag.

It is an increasingly popular and affordable winter destination, attracting visitors seeking sun, sand and sea – plus a unique cultural and historical experience that only The Gambia can provide.

With his wealth of skill, understanding and colourful knowledge, Modou Barry’s specialist countrywide and birdwatching tours are enjoyable, interesting – and safe.

They provide a very real and in-depth insight into true Gambian life both for the tourist and the more adventurous visitor seeking to step off the beaten track.

The areas visited on Modou Barry’s tours form a vital part of The Gambia's heritage, helping to keep alive the story of the many villages and to both help and improve the well-being of the communities that live there today.

This is the ‘real’ Gambia – an authentic experience of the country’s fascinating culture and history. And while our tours provide the experience of a lifetime, you will also see how the people of The Gambia toil on a daily basis to eke out a living in a country still stricken by poverty, yet who never fail to have a smile on their faces!

Welcome to Modou Barry’s Tour Gambia – bespoke private tours for both individuals and groups.
