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.

Despite us being an hour behind Ismael was very friendly, accommodating and kind. We had a lovely lunch paid for at a nice spot. Felt completely safe with Ismael our guide and all the others we met on the way. Very knowledgeable. Cannot beat Ghanaian hospitality. Thank you for such a fun day. Setor.

This was lovely experience and one that I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn about Ghana's history within a relatively short timeframe. Ishmael our guide was brilliant. The only (slight) downside was that the tour guide at Christiansborg castle took much longer than planned and therefore impacted the remaing activies. It was also nice that were in a car by ourselves (party of 3) and not part of a bigger group in a van.

The tour brought me to the most important memorials on the way to the independence of the country Ghana and gave a lasting impression of the way of life of the different population groups. The gate guide was excellent again and often had more to report than the guides in the individual places visited
