review 20 Jan 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We experienced many memorable events but the Voodoo Festival in Ouidah, Benin was the most exciting. It was very colorful and spontaneous. Numerous people went into trances and engaged in wild dances.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Don't hesitate to go. It will surpass your expectations. Don't worry about security. It felt very safe. But be ready for heat and humidity.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local people obviously benefited a little from the money we spent and it's possible that tourist interest in a clean environment could motivate the local people to be more environmentally aware.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It surpassed my expectations. The cultural component was very strong and interesting. I would have enjoyed some time at their nature reserves, but that wasn't part of the trip.
