Full description
Following collection from your Accra or Tema accommodation, your day begins with a Tetteh Quarshie Cocoa Farm. Be transferred cross country in an air-conditioned 4x4, served with water and snacks and with a friendly, experienced, and helpful guide. Once at the cocoa farm, learn how Tetteh Quarshie was a pre-independence Ghanaian agriculturalist who was directly responsible for the introduction of cocoa crops to Ghana. Cocoa crops today constitute one of the major export crops of the Ghanaian economy. In 1879, Tetteh Quarshie planted the seeds at Mampong with some success. Following the Tetteh Quarshie Cocoa Farm, depart to the Aburi Botanical Garden. From there, visit the Aburi Crafts Village. The crafts village is a decent size with many shops to check out, and contains plenty of local woodwork and artisans crafting as you shop. There are many types of arts/crafts there, including clothing, jewellery, key chains, bottle openers, baskets, and furniture. At the conclusion of your experience, your driver returns you back to your accommodation in Accra/Tema.

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.
