Located on the western border of Nigeria, Benin is the birthplace of voodoo which was spread around the globe by the massive export of slaves many years ago. Walk along the slave route to the beach in Ouidah, tour the Grande Marche du Dantopka (a skull and skin-filled fetish market) in Cotonou, and visit the interesting teak stilt villages on the lake in Ganvie. The architecture in the cities has Portuguese beginnings and French colonial flavours.
"We are on the August tour and interested in finding the 14 others who will join us. We live in Las Vegas and this is our 2nd Explore tour. We went to Tibet with them some years ago.
Also, we would like to hear from anyone who has already taken this tour. Victoria"
