This was a really full day with an early (on time) start. The swinging bridges at Kwame National Park are a bit scary but there is lots of support and guidance, and a real feeling of accomplishment to do it! Visiting Elmina and Cape Coast Castles of course is deeply moving, emotionally difficult but important for a European to experience. I will not forget.

The tour operator was on time. He was very professional and knowledgeable. This is a full day tour, bring comfortable shoes

John was my tour guide and he took very good care of me. The tours of the slave castles were heartbreaking, solemn and sad, but a necessity. My soul felt at home and to return 400 years after the Transatlantic slave trade began was priceless. I will forever be grateful for my journey of completion - and this tour was instrumental in that!

We spent a wonderful day with our tour guide Prince. The day started on time and we were treated to a relaxing drive to Cape Coast where we visited the Kakum National Forest, Elmina Castle, and Cape Coast Castle. All along the way, Prince told us about the history and customs of the areas we were seeing. We also stopped at a small roadside family-owned and operated palm oil business where we were shown the processes necessary to extract the oil from plants. We would recommend Prince to anyone seeking a leisurely and informative day tour from Accra.
