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.

We were picked up from our hotel, and we’re the only two people in the tour. Ishmael was very knowledgeable about the history of Ghana and Accra. He showed us the main sights in the city. He was very polite and very pleasant. At the end we had lunch, then he drove us back to our hotel.

Excellent and knowledge guide, Ishmael. Thoroughly enjoyed getting a chance to hear about the history and culture of Accra and Ghana. While I had heard of some of the political history, it was useful to hear it in the context of understanding Ghana's development.

The tour covered everything we expected and several aspects of the maion attractions we didn't know about so was very interesting.
