My cousin and I really enjoyed this tour! Ishmael, our guide, was very friendly. His car was comfortable and spacious. He was very knowledgeable and we had great conversations. After getting rained on at the botanical gardens, I didn’t know what to expect for the rest of the tour. But Ishmael ensured that we made it to each location safely and that we had a good time. He also took several pictures and videos of us that he shared with us after the tour.

We had a great time. David was our guide, he was knowledgeable, professional, caring and kind. He shared with us all his knowledgeable about Ghana. The best part of the tour was the waterfall. We will never forget that!

Visiting Aburi for a guided tour was the best experience for and my family. Very educative and lovely tour guide Maxwell. I will next time wear appropriate shoes like trainers due to long walks
