FAMILIARIZATION LAGOS TOUR

The 1-day familiarization Lagos tour was led by Anago Asho, who is a Tour Lead + Guide.

First stop was Loving Lagos where we learned about the rich authentic history of Lagos State and Nigeria. I highly recommend this tour for anyone living and visiting Lagos.

Then our next stop was Nike Art Gallery where we enjoyed beautiful artworks by African artists. I never get tired of visiting this place 😊

    I was opportune to attend only the Roundtable and I must say, it was a huge eye opener, I got to see the real challenges tourism advocates faced in this country and I also got to meet a lot of travel bigwigs for the first time ever!
    I’ll definitely be aiming for a tour of Loving Lagos, I was actually in the area back in January but I’d like to know, is a tour of the premises free?

      You might need to check their Instagram page. We went on a sponsored trip by Nigeria Travel Week, so I can’t really tell.
