Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Tolu, our guide from Royalties Tours, arranged a private van to pick us up from our hotel. She arrived a couple hours early and patiently waited on us to be ready. When we got to the van, Tolu had an assortment of water and pop for us to choose from.

    When we got to Lekki Conservation Centre, we were all disappointed and surprised to find that it was closed for two weeks for renovations-- despite no notice on the website.

    However, Tolu made it a priority to make our trip worth while. She asked what we wanted to eat and took us to a local spot for lunch. After lunch she offered several suggestions for site seeing. We opted for Kalakuta republic museum, home to Late Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Following that tour, Tolu offered to bus us to the Nike Art Gallery. However, by that point we were all tired and chose to go back.

    Bottom line, despite our trip not going initially as planned, Tolu went out of her way to give us a memorable experience. For that, we were all extremely grateful.

    Highly recommended. Bright who was my driver and guide together with two local guides did a great job of introducing the history of Badagry. I learnt a lot. The slave trade ended in the 1880s and after visiting its clear how recent this is. The descendants of Seriki Williams Abass who built and managed the slave trade facilities at Badagry are still living right there. More people should visit Nigeria and more people should visit Badagry.

    From Victoria Island, the drive there takes around three hours, depending on traffic. The road varies wildly from modern highway to patches of just sand. Badagry is close to the border with Benin and we were stopped by immigration police. Bright had told me to bring a copy of my passport and visa which turned out to be vital. I witnessed a group of smugglers being slapped around by the police. Bright handled the situation expertly and we were able to travel onwards after only a brief stop.

    We added in a stop to have jollof rice on the way back. Highly recommended! If you’re into coffee you better bring your own. Water and snacks can be bought at the museum.

    Motley travels was the best from the very beginning. They were responsive at all times of the night when I finally had a chance to check my emails. They found away to assist me with someone elses app. We learned sooo much. Our guide, Bright, was awesome. He was sooo patient, pleasant and accommodating. He was sooo cool, we requested him again for our tour on Sunday. If you come here and want to see a little bit of everything, check out Motley Travels.

    I booked shuttle lane within Lagos and it was the best experience of my life, they offer world class service. The booking was effortless, confirmation came immediately, the drive was competent, had a great conversation and he offered me chocolate with a bottle of water. I’ll book over and over again, thank you for the treat.

    Spent a wonderful week with Confidence and his team at UcomeAfrik learning about African art, cuisine, culture & music. The depth and breath of his knowledge on all aspects of African life (including Voodoo traditions, the origins of West African slavery and sights of historical significance) are unrivalled. Border crossings, currency exchange & logistics were faultless owing to his careful pre-planning. An unforgettable trip through Abuja, Lagos, Badagry, Cotonou, Ouidah, Lomé, Togoville, Accra and the Cape Coast. Would return in a heartbeat & highly recommend.

    I really really enjoyed my custom tour of Lagos and Abeokuta with Confidence. He's incredibly professional and acted in my best interest at all times. In addition to seeing the main sights of the area, I also wanted to taste as many dishes from Nigerian cuisine as possible. Confidence was super flexible and not only managed to find us every single Nigerian dish and snack to try (DELICIOUS!), but he also arranged an awesome cooking lesson with his chef friend when we visited a nearby city. Speaking of which, he has connections in every corner of West Africa -- not only for cooking lessons, but also for the tricky parts, like borders, where knowing people can really come in handy. Also, his team is great: even if you end up stuck in Lagos traffic you'll have a good time with him and his driver. I 100% recommend Confidence. What a great week!

    I loved Badagry! It was the highlight of my trip to Nigeria.

    Metro DMC arranged a speedboat from Victoria Island in Lagos to Badagry which was a great way to avoid traffic and see life along the waterway. Their génial guide Annago showed me the largest coconut market in Africa, before visiting the slave sights. He even arranged a visit to the Oba’s (his uncle) palace and a meeting with the Oba and his family.

    It was sobering to learn how little a life was worth back then: 800 slaves for a large cannon; 5 -10 slaves for a bottle of gin
    5-10 slaves for a ceramic bowl, and 40 slaves for a large umbrella. Not to mention the horrific conditions of their captivity.

    Today, Badagry is a laid back town where you can walk around in safety and zip along on moto taxis. Wish I had more than a day there.
