Reviews for Ghana cultural tours


review 16 Jan 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The most memorable part was probably walking around the busy streets of areas like Accra Old Town, Osu and the centers of Cape Coast and Elmina. There is always something to look at amongst the crowds and you feel safe and are not unduly bothered. Particularly enjoyable was a visit to a local high-life band’s concert in Cape Coast. And we were very interested in a couple of meetings we had with academics about Ghanaian culture and history.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

We only went for a week, partly because we were cautious about the vacation, never having been to “proper Africa” before. Ghana generally feels a comfortable safe place to be. So take longer – for instance, it would have been good to visit Kumasi.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. Using a local company means your money goes into the local economy. We also enjoyed visiting the social enterprises Global Mamas and Trashy Bags, and could feel confident that our purchases were benefiting local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good. We achieved our main aim of finding out a lot more about Ghana and its people. We would recommend the tour company who were helpful and flexible in designing a tour which suited us, and whose guide Vincent was always friendly and patient.
