What people are saying about Prince Henry the Navigator, Lagos

Very nice excursion and the two who drive the boat (George and George) are really great! Also thanks to the size of the boat it is possible to enter many caves. He described to us various beaches and the various designs that the sea has made. The only note on the meeting point: it says it is at shop 13 (which is in the main building) but the number is not on the shop... thank goodness that the one next door has 14 and that the name of the agency it is very evident. I would certainly recommend it.

The tour was great! Glad we started the day earlier which helped us skipping the bit of traffic that we could’ve gotten. To add the day was bright and sunny. Our guide, Michael was exceptional. He has so much knowledge about everything and he was more than happy to share it with us. He gave us a great history tour about Lagos and Sagres. The vehicle we used to travel around was clean and very well maintained. Overall, we are very happy to have taken the tour.

Great boat trip! Everything was explained great. The coast is beautiful. :-) We could also drive in anywhere.

Very nice tour with lovely and funny staff who speaks English. Highly recommended.

Boat trip was excellent, very skilled boat captain
