Great Tour Guides!
Vanessa_C, Jan 2023
The WEB Dubois Museum was chock full of history. The tours thru the city were well planned. The guides were knowledgeable and patient.

Both tour guides were very detailed with the history surrounding the tour. The tour guide for each destination made us feel welcomed & also were well versed in the history of the country

Great tour, would recommend.
Eunan_M, Nov 2022
Ben was great, very good knowledge of Accra. Ben was friendly and made the day enjoyable. Ben advised us of what price we should be paying at the local markets, which ensured a fair outcome for me and for the vendor. We met locals and were shown around many of the areas of Accra, with niche insider knowledge. Thanks Ben and Emanuel, we would definitely recommend.

Average.
ChariseMorganJoseph, Oct 2022
Just OK. This tour guide came highly recommended but I felt like I caught him on an off day. Low energy, and not terribly interested in the tour. Felt like we were just checking off items on a grocery list as we drove around.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Hello, thank you for booking our Accra experience and I wouldn't like to say much here. I went way beyond my capabilities just to get you a visa on arrival at no charge fee. On day of the of the tour you told me my tour is the best you've done so far. So why this review. Anyway that's your opinion. Sorry if the tour didn't go as you expected, we hope to do better next time.
average but nothing special
ChristianTenisch, Oct 2022
This was an ok tour, not extremely engaging but also not bad. I appreciated that we had our own driver and not just going around with an uber like I read in some reviews. The tour through Jamestown though was really short and kind of a joke. I would recommend going to the places of this tour by yourself, it’s much cheaper and often they have their own guides anyway, like in the WEB dubois museum.

Excellent Half Day Excursion
Erlie_P, Sep 2022
Excellent half day excursion filled with many facts about Ghana. The team was polite, professional, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour if you only have a few hours to explore Ghana.

Ben have a great private tour. He was very knowledgeable. I enjoyed the whole trip but I particularly enjoyed the Makola market and learning about Jamestown.

Good till lunch
Joel_H, Jul 2022
Great stops but lunch was awful besides the view and the craft market experience was rushed into one booth then left.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hello, please thank you for the review and appreciate your support.
A great day but more costly than expected.
Korey_S, Jul 2022
This was a great trip. The Makola market was mind bending and the history was full. It was a lot of walking, which I enjoyed. I only wish I had been warned that I was expected to spend money like a wealthy tourist, which I am not, I am a poor student here for an exchange. I ran out of money near the end of the tour and had nothing for the craft market. And that was even with skipping lunch. If you are to take this tour, bring around 1000 cedi for the Dubois center, markets, lunch, donating to local causes, and other transactions along the way.

All the sites you need to see
Abrea_A, Jul 2022
This tour hits the key stops you need to visit in Accra. The guides took me on top of the arch right as a “parade” was coming through—it was absolutely magical. The artisan market was excellent. Be prepared to bargain. And the market market was just as intense as I anticipated it to be. I did the tour alone and felt the tour was very personalized for my experience and felt safe and comfortable entirely. I learned a lot of Ghana’s independence and democracy too.

This is a must-see tour
Folu_O, Jun 2022
I absolutely enjoyed my tour and I learnt so much about the history of Accra. Emmanuel took us to all the major spots in Accra - Jamestown, independence square, Makola market, Kwame memorial park and Accra art centre. Some of the spots were not opened as we went on a Sunday but he made sure we stopped to have a sneak peek. He also made sure to inform us about the history of each location and helped us negotiate prices at the art centre. If you have only 24 hours to spend in Accra, I'll definitely recommend this tour definitely a must do.

A good tour, but missing a lot of information
Diana_S, Apr 2022
We enjoyed the tour. However, here a few suggestions for the organisers: - It would be good to give info while driving to spend less time out in the sun - I felt like a lot more things should've been included in the tour - like pointing out important government buildings, a stop at the beautiful mosque and the national theatre, mention of the National Museum of Ghana, a visit to Artist's Alliance Gallery, Gallery 1957, mentioning interesting places like the SkyBar25, a trip to the coffin workshop, talking about the architecture, and the country's economy in general. This would make a full day tour but I feel like a lot of info was missing from the 4 hour tour. - it would be great if you provided a small bottle of water for each tourist - keep on the aircon, it does cost in petrol, but we would've really appreciated getting into a cool car after every stop rather than getting into the hot car and waiting for it to cool down.

Great Tour!
Tracey_N, Jan 2022
My tour guide was Emmanuel, driver- Samuel. The tour was a great quick tour to encompass the whole of Accra in one day. I had my 2 year old and was able to move around fairly well with her and the help of our guide. Emmanuel was very knowledgeable of the places we went and the places along the way on the road. I would definitely recommend this tour if you want to hit all the highlights of Accra in one day!
