Once the heart of the Ashanti empire, Ghana is now an emerging destination within West Africa thanks to its vibrant culture, beach resorts, and historic place in the African slave trade. Learn more about Ghana's cultural heritage by taking a day tour in the country’s capital of Accra.

Arts & Crafts Tours
Modern Ghana is a hub for West African trade and commerce, and the capital of Accra is no exception. Discover the city’s creative side on a small group tour that includes visits with local craftspeople, bakers, and fishermen and a stop at a local factory where workers transform scrap metal into tools, jewelry, and works of art.

Architecture Tours
Ghana, like much of Africa, was colonized by Europeans, and that history is reflected in the city’s diverse architectural styles. Take a neighborhood architecture tour that includes the Danish, Dutch, Jamestown, and Old Accra neighborhoods, to see the stately colonial homes. A cultural heritage tour may wrap up with a visit to Palladium Hall, which played an important role in Accra's political past.

Slave History Tours
Learn about Ghana’s dark history of slavery on a cultural tour that walks you through Accra’s former slave forts and museums, some of which are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit the museum at Ussher Fort and learn about the cruel enslavement of millions of West Africans, and see the slave dungeons at the James Fort, where West Africans were once imprisoned. Wrap up your heritage tour at the Brazil House Museum, where you'll learn about the descendants of slaves who returned to Ghana from Brazil in the mid 19th century.
