This is an incredibly safe and fun experience! Whenever you want to move to a different location or may be call it a night, all you have to do is say the word and you will be taken to your next destination or taken back to your residence. However, I would suggest staying out the entire time given Accra nightlife is amazing! My group was taken around Accra seeing various locations. If you are a newcomer to Accra's night life scene, then this is a great option for learning more about it if you do not have a group of your own to go with.

My family of 3 were the only ones on the morning tour on our chosen day. Our guide Edward was prompt, knowledgeable and patient with us. We appreciated his local knowledge, and his ability to negotiate entry fees. He customized the tour to our preferences and we had a wonderful introduction to the city of Accra and its history. We would recommend this tour to first time visitors.

Nice and friendly guides that took us safely through Makola Market. We enjoyed trying the different local foods and drinks of Ghana. Ended with a nice lunch at a local restaurant. Lots of walking, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes!

The activity was good. Only real complaint is car size and not understanding that the arts center was a market for shopping.

Freedom was a very good tour guide. Attentive to what we wanted to do/see and easy to be around. He was a safe driver too.
