Transport – Taxis

Tour operators use comfortable, air-conditioned coaches for their transfers and off-road vehicles for their trips.

For those who like to go on tour on their own or in small groups, there are several taxi services available in the Gambia.
Tourist Taxis
They are mostly green and marked “tourist taxi”. These taxis areofficially approved by the Gambia Tourism Authority, and are available to tourists and other visitors. They are usually located outside of the hotels in the resorts. They work within a “queue” system and have publicised tariff for all distances within the Gambia and beyond. However, we advise you to check this with the driver before your departure. It is customary to give a voluntary tip to the driver or guard.
