        AMAZING!!!!! Highly recommend!
        Simply incredible. Cannot recommend this company enough and Ali is a very nice person. Don’t stress, I was in a bulletproof vehicle with armed guards and we were able to walk around the beaches, lighthouse etc. I learnt a lot about the history, and we enjoyed some amazing food on the beach. This company puts together a perfect tour of Mogadishu from the second you land to the second you leave. Safe, secure and reliable. Cannot wait to come back to discover more of Somalia with VisitMogadishu!

        Hargeisa-Berbera-Mogadishu Combo Trip
        Ali is a courteous gentleman, well-groomed, and a pleasure to converse with. His perspective and experience were well evident in the streamlined fashion in which he organized for me a custom Somaliland & Mogadishu trip that fit within my time and flight constraints. Both he and his partner Ayanle in Hargeisa are very knowledgeable and were efficient to the point where I even had some extra time left over in both locations to do some unplanned sightseeing. The hotels booked for me were clean, comfortable, and had good aircon and wifi. Ayanle’s Lexus SUV was a smooth ride with powerful aircon and made our road trip to Berbera and back a pleasure. Ali’s Hilux in Mogadishu was fortified with safety in mind, but also blew ice cold air, making it a mini oasis in which to refresh in between our sightseeing and walking excursions. This combo trip was the highlight of a monthlong Africa journey, and I will happily recommend both Ali & Ayanle to prospective travelers.

        Outstanding Somali Visa Support
        Getting a work visa for Somalia seemed hard at first, but Visit Mogadishu's team made it easy. Their support was outstanding, and they took care of everything from start to finish. I was particularly impressed with their thoroughness and customer care. Highly recommended!

        Great trip to Somalia and Somaliland
        Ali organized an incredible trip for us in Somalia and Somaliland. We couldn’t have done it without him. He even helped us get our visas on arrival without any problems. We felt safe and taken care of at all times. He knew everything about the area and made our trip unforgettable. His enthusiasm and friendliness made us feel right at home. We highly recommend him for a fantastic travel experience!

        VISIT MOGADISHU first class
        I traveled with VISIT MOGADISHU between February 17-24, 2024. During the whole trip in Mogadishu and Puntland and Jubaland as well I felt safe and comfortable. Therefore I recommend the services of VISIT MOGADISHU as a trusted and reliable tour operator.

        Safe & secure option to see Mogadishu (early curfew makes it hard to get a feel for the city) and Somaliland
        After our initial plans fell through, I contacted Visit Mogadishu (VM) to organize a trip to Somaliland and Mogadishu and provide a letter of invitation. They were able to prepare the letter within an hour and we obtained the visa on arrival. VM worked with Safaari in Hargeisa for the Somaliland portion, which was a 3-day predetermined itinerary. The hotels and food were great. Las Geel paintings were incredible. I wish we'd had more time in Hargeisa instead of visiting Sheekh, which was a bit out of the way and we weren't able to visit the necropolis. Some of the sites in Hargeisa were across from the hotel, so we could have done those on our own. Overall, the Somaliland portion of the tour was fine, but I know now that it can be done cheaper. I generally prefer solo travel without tours, so I would have opted to work with a local hotel to get the necessary visa clearance, permits, and transportation had I known this was possible. In my opinion, the Somaliland portion was overpriced. Our flight to Mogadishu was delayed, and when we arrived we were informed that there's a curfew at 5pm that requires us to start heading back to the hotel by 4:30. We only had a few hours that first day to stop at a cafe and park to mingle with locals. Unfortunately that was really the only time we were able to do that. The next morning we did spend at the fish market, which was incredible. Other than a short stop at the beach for lunch, we were in the vehicle the whole afternoon. I would recommend skipping the camel farm, since there are bigger camel markets in Hargeisa. I realize the security situation in Mogadishu is beyond the control of VM, but I wish I had known about the curfew. I might have decided to come to Somalia in 10 years in case the situation is improved. The tour was fine, though, and we saw the major sites on the agenda. A few were closed or no longer available (Black Hawk Down site is gone), but for me I prefer more interaction with the local population and walking or taking tuk-tuks in the city to get a feel for it. I know now that other tours offer post-curfew excursions and staying outside of the green zone, so if you are more risk-tolerant, I would suggest looking into those. If you want bragging rights that you've been to Mogadishu and/or are nervous about going there and want top security, then VM is great and will take care of you the whole way. The hotel inside the green zone was small, but efficient, has laundry, and great internet. I definitely recommend VM is this is your travel style/interest. VM was always very professional and the staff friendly. They seem genuinely interested in feedback, and they have been doing tours for a long time. Overall, I did enjoy what I was able to see in Mogadishu. I just wish we could have spent more time at places where real life is happening and less time in the vehicle.

        Highly recommended
        This was an absolutely excellent trip. The team took very good care of me, they were good at managing security and I felt safe at all points in time. Mogadishu is a wildly fascinating place full of contrast. The fish market is unlike any I have seen elsewhere in the world and walking from the fish market to the (ruined) lighthouse where they bring the fish ashore was perfect. I was there on a Friday which meant beaches were crowded with families enjoying a day out. I managed to get to both Lido Beach in Mogadishu as well as Jaziira Beach outside the city. If you have time I recommend making it out to Jaziira. Somaliland - Hargeisa and Berbera - was more relaxed than Mogadishu but certainly also great to visit. The cave paintings in Las Geel is a must-see. The team at Visit Mogadishu can certainly be trusted to arrange visits to Somalia and have been very helpful right from the first email contact.

        Magical Moga
        I did a 3 day group tour in Mogadishu with Ali and team. It was very well organized and we were able to see all sites mentioned in the itinerary. We traveled to various places in bullet proof vehicles with guards as safety measures. Somalia is an untouched gem, beautiful coastline and so much potential. The long weekend was very enjoyable.

        Amazing Somalia
        The tour was really interesting and we enjoyed Somalia and Somaliland a lot. Local people are very welcoming, the cities still "out of the beaten path" and Ali (my guide) was extremely professional, specially to garantee our security. He also did all the effort to make us feel like at home. Go visit Somalia!

        2 day Mogadishu tour
        It was a really good experience. At no point did we feel unsafe and people are extremely friendly. Obviously, after all the troubles, the infrastructure is lacking and there are a lot of ruined buildings but you can see the potential. Driving around the multitude of tuk tuks is fun, seeing the hundreds of families enjoying a day at the beach is heart warming and the food is very nice. Our guides, Ali and Omar, told us all about the history and showed us the city and surrounding areas.

        Amazing trip & service
        I totally encourage anyone who may have reservations about visiting Mogadishu to seize the opportunity, and I highly recommend doing so with the assistance of both Omar and Ali. To expedite the trip planning process, I reached out to them via WhatsApp. They were more than happy to accommodate this request and organized a memorable trip for me in March, although I didn't embark on it until July, during which the weather was exceptionally pleasant. Omar and Ali prioritized our safety and provided us with clear and stringent guidelines to ensure our well-being throughout the journey. They facilitated visits to numerous attractions within the city of Mogadishu, and they even took us to the outskirts to explore picturesque lakes and the stunning Aljazeera beach. I truly endorse Omar and Ali for anyone contemplating a visit to Mogadishu. Additionally, I would like to suggest considering the inclusion of other destinations in Somalia like Kismaayo, given the availability of daily direct flights from Mogadishu that can effortlessly transport you there.

        Excellent Tour of Mogadishu
        We had a wonderful experience with Visit Mogadishu. Upon arrival, Mohammed put our nerves at ease as it was clear safety is their priority. We had one full day there and Mohammed made sure we saw all there was to see in Mogadishu and ensured our trip went quite smoothly. The hotel was great and within the green zone, very close to the airport and in a very safe, well-controlled area. I would highly recommend Visit Mogadishu if you are planning to visit. Omar, Ali, and Mohammed were all great.

      I went with VisitMogadishu for an extended tour of Mogadishu for 6 days. I arrived and found the team at the airport to pick me up (and the entire country is very welcomng, despite what you may hear), and was taken to a safe hotel inside of the city (not stuck in compound). Got a chance to see many sights, multiple beaches with chances to swim in the Indian Ocean, the lighthouse, some areas from the war, the theatre, many monuments. Throughout the entire trip the team made sure I was safe, I was able to get any needed items plus ensure that all meals were of the highest standard with fresh Somalian food. They even added a couple events at my request - the highlight was a football match. Thanks to the group the trip was safe the entire time and I was able to see a side of Somalia that's never shown internationally. Definitely recommend visiting with them as they seem to know everything and everyone involved in Somalian tourism.

      Great tour provided by the Visit Mogadishu team. Felt safe and secure at all times. Good communication pre-trip. Ali picked us up at the airport and helped with our departure procedures as well. There was an issue at one of the sites we visited, but Ali was able to handle it admirably. Be prepared for things to change or cancel at short notice. This is Mogadishu after all and more of an adventure trip than anything else. The hotel we stayed at was lovely. While we did have a seafood lunch on the beach, I would've loved to try more local Somali food on this short visit. Nonetheless, the tour was enjoyable and I would highly recommend this tour if you are interested in visiting Mogadishu.

      Overall, I really enjoyed Mogadishu tour and learned a lot from it. Thank you for the travel agent "Visit Mogadishu" team. Although their tour arrangement was not perfect, or they may not fulfill all of your expectation sometimes, I believe that their management is good enough considering the difficult situation of Mogadishu. They were very flexible and always tried their best efforts to satisfy your request during tour.
      For example, I requested to visit National Stadium (not many people visit) several days before my arrival. They flexibly arranged the visit the stadium for me and we could visit inside of the stadium and players locker room as well. It was fantastic. On the other hand, we could not visit Cathedral (Catholic Church) remains due to security reasons.

      Of course, security is the most important concern in Mogadishu, sometimes they could not arrange your request. The security situation may change every moment. All tourist have to be very careful.

      "Visit Mogadishu" team could be one of the best local travel agent in Somalia.

      Some friends and I recently completed the 2 day Mogadishu tour. We highly recommend Visit Mogadishu. They are professional and trustworthy and prioritize safety. They facilitated our passage through the airport on arrival on departure. They put us up a hotel inside the green zone near the airport for the best security. They provided armed guards to travel with us whenever we left the secure green zone.

      However, they also gave us as much freedom as is reasonable in Mogadishu for walking in parts of the city, shopping, visiting the fish market, walking on the secure beaches, a boat ride, etc.

      It's not possible at the moment to visit Mogadishu independently without a guide. I highly recommend contacting Visit Mogadishu to provide your guided tour. They also arrange tours to Puntland and other parts of Somalia. Their prices are very fair considering their costs of providing the tours.

      Omar and his team are highly recommended to visit Mogadishu. Omar and his buddy Ali were very efficient in providing us safety and security, comfort and culture experience.

      Having Omar organizing our trip to Mogadishu is everything we wanted. He's truly professional since the first email we exchange with him to the farewell at the Airport at the end of our trip. He is openly minded while discussing the trip options, quick on responding our requests. Omar and Ali are full of knowledge about their country, they are the guide everyone wants for a trip- they are simply great!

      This was one of my most memorable travel experiences ever. Omar and team took excellent care and went above and beyond to show me around the city, visit the markets, meet locals, see the ravages of the civil war, see development projects, construction and progress. Security is a major challenge but the people are resilient and warm. I felt quite welcome and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. I hope to return again soon.

      Visit Mogadishu has been very precise and attentive when arranging the trip. I've been wanting to go there for a long time but could not arrange it due to personal constraints. Omar kept up informing me so that we finally made it a reality in the end. So a big thanks to them.

      Omar, Ali and guide Mohammed did a fantastic job with my visit to Mogadishu. From Airport pick up to exploring around the Mogadishu to dropping me back off at the airport and making sure I clear immigration.

      If you're planning to visit Mogadishu, these are the guys I would recommend to take care of you as they know the ins and outs and take necessary steps to keep you safe and worry free during your trip.

      Spent a few days with “Visit Mogadishu” sightseeing the highlights in the city. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe and well-taken care of on my private tour. I wish o had more time to visit other regions with them, but I hope to return. The secured keep was comfortable, delicious meals and the people were excellent to deal with. Would recommend without hesitations

      Very good experience with Visit Mogadishu during two day visit. While initially a bit nervous about visiting this place, once I was met by Mohamed on arrival, it became clear that security was taken seriously, making me feel much more at ease. The information exchange and booking process with Omar went very smooth, and Visit Mogadishu correcty lived up to their commitments. Even though I booked as a solo traveler, I ended up with another couple during the excursions, which was fine. If ever I go back to Somalia, I would not hesitate to book with Visit Mogadishu again.
