Voice of Travelers to Guinea

Wonderful memories in Guinea

I wanted to visit somewhere different so last year my boyfriend and I went to Guinea, and it was the best decision! We wanted a direct flight ticket so we booked our ticket with AirFrance, from Paris to Guinea. It was a pleasant flight and the arrival in Guinea was very welcoming. We had already booked our hotel in Guinea and a return ticket so we got a local guide and started to explore Guinea. Though the weather was very hot we had all kinds of fun, especially the beach, and the hotel helped us to buy a ticket to all the local museums to learn about Guinea's culture. I can't wait to go back!

Best vacation of my life

I live in Athens and have explored Europe, but I have always wanted to go to Africa. One day I saw an advert for a cheap ticket to Guinea so my decision was quick. I told my husband and immediately booked our ticket with Aegean Airlines and our hotel to Guinea. We got a great deal for our ticket and had an excellent flight, on a clean and modern plane. People in Guinea were so friendly, and the ocean and the exotic beaches are a must see. We spent a lot of time buying a cultural ticket and exploring museums in Guinea. Mount Nimba is an unforgettable place to find absolute peace. Guinea is a wonderful place and I would recommend it to everyone who wants to visit somewhere a bit unusual.

Amazing experience

Last summer one of my friends came upon a ticket offer to Guinea. We live in Italy so it was quite a long way, but we still made a choice to get the ticket, book a hotel in Guinea and try out something new. We weren't wrong - we had the best experience ever! We got a great ticket deal, booked our ticket with Alitalia and were ready to go. For a flight so long, the on-board entertainment they offered was excellent. We arrived in Guinea, rested a bit and then found a friendly local guide to take us to all the amazing waterfalls and get a ticket to all the local events going on at that time. The money spent on our museum ticket in Guinea were best money ever spent. Had a little trouble with our return ticket but everything turned out alright.
