Hi, I'm Gavin, Norwegian nationality, but born and raised in Lagos, Portugal. Having worked in hospitality for a large number of years, from restaurants to bars and most recently as a tour guide, in my own business, allied to the knowledge of the history and feeling of accomplishment I get when I show people around my hometown of Lagos, makes me the ideal man for the job to introducing you to Lagos.

Gavin was a great guide. He was funny and the information was really interesting. The bikes were great and the ride was not too hard. Great way to see the town and learn about the history and what currently goes on in Lagos.

Gavin hat die Tour leider spontan abgesagt, besser rechtzeitig noch einmal nachfragen, ob die Tour stattfindet, da manche Reisende extra hierfür anreisen

Nice and informative tour. Bikes were in very good condition. He answered all our questions we had about town on top of the actual tour. We had a nice sunset outside of town. Can definitely recommend the tour.
