Full description
Join a guided city tour of Accra, the capital of Ghana. First stop is Black Star Square, where you will learn about Ghana's fight for independence. Also known as Independence Square, this square boasts three monuments, and is the primary site for the nation's public gatherings, national festivals, and Independence Day parades.  Next, head to the vibrant township of Osu for a visit to the Osu Castle. Also known as the Christiansborg Castle, this 17th-century castle was converted into a Presidential Museum in 2017. Occupied by the Portuguese through the 17th-century, this ocean-front castle is now one of Ghana's most important heritage sites.  Continue to Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, a remarkable mausoleum dedicated to Ghana's first president. From here, visit the colonial-era James Town Light House and then venture to the bustling Makola Market. Being Accra's oldest commercial hub, Makola offers a wide range of products, from car parts to land snails. After exploring Makola, you'll visit a nearby restaurant to have a typical local lunch. You will then be transferred back to your hotel.

An amazing trip getting a private tour of Accra. My guide was very patient and took the time to answer all of my questions about Ghana’s history and it’s people. At no point did I feel rushed to leave any of the locations. I highly recommend this tour. Only con, is that some of the sites were closed for renovations and I feel like the description on this site should mention these and the places to be visited instead.

This tour was absolutely amazing! I feel like I got to experience all of Accra in just one day. The tour guide, David, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He ensured that we had the best experience possible and took plenty pictures for us from our phones. I truly enjoyed this experience and would recommend it to others.

I had a wonderful time with David. He’s very friendly and knowledgeable. He will share his knowledge of Accra history and show you some important places. David is also a safe driver. I had lunch from one of the best Ghanian restaurants Accra has to offer. David can also share information about night life if interested. I rate this tour 10/10.
