Free tour Lagos History, stories, tales, with a local - small groups
Born and raised in Lagos, I have a great deal of memories of stories told by several generations of local people, not to mention their habits, behaviors and cultural issues. Being an old-school traveler and an experienced hotelier myself, who already served thousands of travelers from all over the world, I have the urge to show my town in an alternative manner, a bit apart from the same old tours for tourists.
Free tour Lagos History, stories, tales, with a local – History, culture, and the essential tips, both local and region-wide.
Come with me!!
Being an “old school” traveler and experienced hotelier myself, who already served thousands of travelers from all over the world, I love to show my town in an alternative and independent manner, a bit apart from the same old tours for tourists. So, you will see and hear what most people don`t. You get unbiased tips for food, activities, day trips, and even for other places if you wish – not to mention avoiding the “traps”.
The tour is also designed for short-term residents / new residents (such as ex-pats, digital nomads, etc…) in order to get to know more about the area.
After doing this tour you will have a good vision of what has happened in this town from its origins to the present day.
Hear some legends, myths, and stories of one of the oldest human settlements in Europe and how events such as battles or natural disasters dramatically changed both the human and natural shape of this area.
We guide in small groups only and it will take around one hour and forty-five minutes (maybe a bit more). Better for the guests, better for us and better for the town. Thank you for supporting real local people.
Please contact me if you wish to have a small group tour on another language.
