Greetings, I'm Talla, hailing from West Africa. Welcome to Senegal, and in particular, to the captivating region of Saint Louis, once the esteemed capital city of West Africa during the colonial era.

Currently pursuing my Master's degree in Literature and African Civilization, I also delve into the role of a tourist guide during my spare time. Having spent over four years as a guide in the Saint Louis Region, my passion lies in imparting the rich cultural heritage of Ndar ndars - the esteemed inhabitants of Saint Louis. Through my tours, I take pleasure in narrating the history of this exquisite city to visitors, showcasing its cultural mosaic, and indulging in the culinary delights it offers - particularly if you share my penchant for good food!

Beyond my role as a guide, I find solace in physical activities. Whether it's a rejuvenating session at the beach, a rigorous workout at the gym, or a spirited game of soccer, sports hold a special place in my heart.

Saint Louis stands as a living testament to the era of colonization, being the pioneering capital of West Africa and the initial landing point for explorers on the African continent. Witnessing the ancient buildings, statues, the iconic bridge, and myriad other elements is nothing short of exhilarating - an experience that often leaves visitors enchanted.

I pride myself on the ability to tailor tours to meet the desires and preferences of my clients. So, welcome to Senegal, the land of Teranga, and especially to Saint Louis, a true paradise on Earth. Let's embark on a journey together, where every moment is filled with wonder and discovery.
