The range of rented private accommodation in Accra is truly amazing. If you have the deposit and up to 12 or 24 months of rent in your bank balance to pay up front. I was recently looking for a apartment to rent. And whilst I...More

We definitely were taken off of the beaten path. We saw where much of the Accra raw construction materials are located and refined such as wood and aluminum. We walked to the Accra l8vestock market on the beach and through a local Ga fishing community....More

This was an intense, beautiful, horrible, confusing, disturbing, uplifting, powerful experience. In Ghana nothing is straight forward, even finding the place to meet the guide. I wanted to not pay ahead online, but pay cash at the start of the tour. I had a series...More

All the colour, noise and excitement with a friendly guide, this was a great, if exhausting, morning. I never felt unsafe in Ghana, but often got lost! So it was wonderful to have someone show you around, and the way to experience all those delights...More

No words, but this is a necessary and humbling experience. I found the art : sculptures, and poetry in the gallery, most moving, because it helps to understand , and to learn from this unforgivable part of our history.

Very informative. In retrosect i would have liked to have spoken to more locals about their challenges. Really interested in the amount of recycling undertaken. We could take a lesson!

The overall Old and New Accra tour was not disappointing though also not amazing. The real issue was that the guide did not show up for half an hour, and only did because I called and emailed. If I did not have a working SIM...More

I am sure they would be happy to arrange everything. To really be able to experience Accra you need to walk. That would be difficult unless you have "whisperers" so the guide can be heard by everyone.
