Voice of Travelers to Equatorial Guinea

I had a fantastic time in Equatorial Guinea

I live in Germany so last winter I decided to escape the cold and travel to Africa. My boyfriend and I went to a local travel agency and organised a hotel and ticket for Equatorial Guinea. The agency booked our ticket with Qatar Airways. We were very pleasantly surprised with the flight and were very glad about our choice for the plane ticket. We arrived safely in Equatorial Guinea. Our hotel was amazing, the people were very friendly and recommended us a local guide to explore Equatorial Guinea. We got a ticket to all the museums and local concerts. The weather was a very welcome change from the freezing winter in Germany. We were very glad about our decision and would love to go back.

Wonderful landscapes

Last winter my family and I decided to go on a holiday to Equatorial Guinea. We live in London so no direct flight ticket was available. We managed to book a stop-over ticket online with AirFrance. We got a great deal for our ticket and booked our hotel. Equatorial Guinea is gorgeous. The views you see from the mountains are unforgettable and very tranquil. Pico Basilé, Monte Alén National Park, Corisco are all places you must see when travelling to Equatorial Guinea. The exotic beaches and wonderful forests are only part of what Equatorial Guinea has to offer. If you live in a place where the winter gets way too cold and boring, a ticket to Equatorial Guinea is your perfect getaway. We were very glad about our plane ticket decision and airline.

Heavenly nature

For all of you who want a break from the city, Equatorial Guinea is the ideal destination. We got a great deal for our ticket from Italy - we booked our ticket with AirFrance. Relaxing on the beaches, trying traditional food, buying a ticket for all the local events and amazing peaks and mountains - it was heavenly. We had a little trouble since one of my friends lost her return ticket somehow but that situation was handled very well and she easily got a new ticket. We all loved Equatorial Guinea and would definitely recommend it.
