Tour Details

Bunce Island was the largest British slave castle on the Rice Coast of West Africa. This is a must see for anyone interested in the history of the slave trade. You cannot hear the story of Bunce Island without being moved by its history.

Founded around 1670, it exported tens of thousands of African captives to North America and the West Indies until the British Parliament finally closed it down in 1808.

This tour starts at 9am and includes a certified tour guide and lunch. You can expect to be back around 2-3pm.

Bunce Island can also be done combined with a visit to Tasso Island.
