    A Valuable Resource In West Africa
    Reviewed August 25, 2019

    Confidence is one of the best guides I have employed anywhere in the world.  I found him to be knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy, entirely reliable and always willing to fine tune my adult son's and my intricate custom tour, to meet our particular needs.  Beyond that, he's a charming guy with a quick sense of humor, which we appreciated.  This tour was to 6 West African countries, which did not include Nigeria.  In fact, I think Confidence hadn't been in two of them before.  But he made all the necessary local inquiries to make sure the trip came off flawlessly.  I would recommend Confidence to anyone who wants to visit West Africa to learn, in depth, about the region's history and various cultures.

    A Fun Trip Through Ghana, Togo, Benin
    Reviewed July 18, 2019

    Confidence is punctual, professional, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, funny, and surrounds himself with good people who will become your friends and will take care of you. I got very sick from bad food that I didn't warm up and Confidence stayed by my side through most of the night and helped succor me back to health. His drivers and assistant guides are well-vetted. I also took a trip to Liberia a year ago through Confidence's company, which had ups and downs but was still worth it. Confidence is straightforward and arrow straight. He's a man of faith and it shows. Confidence gets my highest recommendations and we will do business many more times, as he operates from Senegal east to Nigeria and has contacts in other places too. His English is standard and cannot be misunderstood. He's educated and as pursuing post-grad degress now. Hire this guide NOW!

    Professional, Flexible And Well Organized
    Reviewed February 3, 2019

    I needed a high level of flexibility during my trip as I usually tend to make last minute plans. Confidence provided full support and always made sure everything is plausible.  He and his team were always on-time which was a big plus.

    I'll definitely hire him on my next trip to West Africa!

    I have hired Confidence twice for trips in West Africa and both were lovely experiences. He makes an intimidating part of the world easy. He was always professional, punctual and personable. Would definitely hire again.

    Fun, Safe Trip Of A Lifetime With Confidence

    Reviewed November 19, 2019

    From the first contact over WhatsApp to dropping me off at the Lagos airport, Confidence and his team were one of the best tour guides I have ever had, and everything was sharp-sharp (when you call/text/WhatsApp Confidence, he will tell you what it means)! Like many people, I was nervous about picking a guide, but Confidence provided five American citizens’ names as references to call. When I called/texted them, they all got back with me quickly, and helped me to know I was in good, safe hands with Confidence. I ended up putting down an 80% deposit, which allowed us to concentrate on the experience!

    After living in Brazil on assignment with my company for two years as well as growing up in the Southern U.S., I knew I had to visit West Africa to learn about the history and influence it had on two cultures that I love dearly. Confidence tailored a trip, starting by taking me to the African Diaspora festival in Badagary, where they invite Americans (As in North and South America, and Caribbean) whose ancestors were brought over in the slave trade back to walk the path their ancestors took. There are no museum experiences or words to describe the sadness I felt walking the path that slaves walked, or feeling the weight of the chains that were put on them. After the walk, the festival cheered me up, with music, dancing, and masquerades. The people were extremely friendly, and helped to give me hope again. Confidence’s attention to detail, such as keeping my cellphone in his bag, knowing the locals, and even having some cash on hand for people, kept the day smooth and invigorating. We drank some Palm Wine with the locals, and stayed the night.

    The best activity we attended was Felabration, or an Afro-Beat music festival named in honor of Fela Kuti. When I arrived in Nigeria, I told Confidence I usually don’t stay out late, but the music was so good, I stayed out until 2:30AM! I could see and feel the African roots of Brazilian samba and axé and United States’ blues and funk.

    One thing I wish I could have done is contacted Confidence earlier. Countries like Brazil and Nigeria have many controls to make sure people are safe, and money is not sent due to Fraud. For example, there is no way to send money to Confidence quickly, as all transactions are researched and can take 5-10 days. Confidence might ask for a large portion of the deposit upfront, and possibly sent to his Ghana account, but this is to insure he can use the money to reserve activities. As an accountant, I am happy to explain why this exists, and Confidence can share my contact information with you.

    I had such a good time, I will be doing a week in Ghana with Confidence next year!

    Confidence Ekele Is An Excellent Travel Organizer For Liberia And Ghana

    Reviewed August 18, 2017

    Confidence Ekele provided me with excellent travel support in planning and organizing my April 2017 land-based travel arrangements in Monrovia, Liberia.  He speaks English fluently, and though living in Ghana, he is also experienced and knowledgeable about Liberia.  In advance of my travel, Confidence was always helpful and responsive to all my requests.  He communicated clearly and regularly with me in advance about my local arrangements in Liberia, and was also dependably helpful after my arrival.  In fact, in order to meet me in person when I arrived at the Monrovia airport, he traveled all the way by bus from his home base in Acccra,Chana.  He also made arrangements for our local transportation (car and driver) with Michael Williams, a very fine and knowledgeable Liberian national.  Together Confidence and Michael ensured that I was able to see and experience as much as possible during the 3 short days I spent in Liberia, including visiting many sights in Monrovia itself, and -- at my special request -- attending Easter Sunday Mass at Monrovia's Cathedral; visiting the famous, now-derelict hotel and conference center outside Monrovia (built for the 1979 Organization of African Unity meeting); and locating the remote cemetery with thousands of  2014+ ebola victims' graves deep in the country side outside Monrovia.  During my Liberia visit, both Confidence and Michael were prompt and dependable, always on time, knowledgeable and helpful, trustworthy, plus kind and pleasant.  I highly recommend Confidence (and Michael) to any traveler who wants dependable, responsive and affordable travel support in either Liberia or Ghana.  Mary Levering, Washington, DC, USA
