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.

Very professional and local (grew up in Lagos) which made for some funny stories, made time to speak personally with everyone, gave information on past and present, biking was easy and a nice change from walking. Would highly recommend.

Loved the tour, easily one of my favourites. I’ve done my fair share of walking tours and this one was very refreshing. The bikes were great and such a good way to explore multiple locations. Covered a lot of modern topics as well as the essential historical things. Doesn’t have such a heavy focus on boring historic dates or events that you just end up forgetting. Couldn’t recommend more!

We can’t recommend this tour enough! We’ve been on many free walking tours before but never a free bike tour. At first that made us nervous but we were put immediately at ease. Gavin gave us a great tour and accommodated to our pace. We were able to see so much of Lagos and learned so much about the history, politics and current events. He was very patient with our many questions and even gave us recommendations for food and places to see for the rest of our trip! The bikes were mountain bikes and helmets were provided. Thank you again, Gavin, for the wonderful time!
