What people are saying about Accra

I had a wonderful tour of Accra with David! We covered so much ground and I was able to enjoy a much more authentic and fun experience of exploring Accra. I was glad to have a guide with me for my first trip to the Makola and to point out sites with historical significance throughout Accra that I would have missed by myself. David has great relationships with people/museum guides at each stop and kept the tour on track and fun. I couldn’t recommend more!

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.

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

It was the best tour of Accra, our driver was very knowledgeable and friendly and drives smoothly.
