Frederick was my guide. He was punctual, friendly and already explained the historical backgrounds of Aburi and local traditions while we were driving to Aburi. He gave me a lot of information all throughout the tour and was very patient with my picture-taking and strolling around. Without him, I would have missed all the spice trees in the gardens!
It was a real pleasure to tour the cocoa farm and the botanical gardens with him and I highly recommend the tour!

My tour with Frederick was fantastic. He is really knowledgeable when it comes to Accra and the attractions we visited and so he had a lot of interesting comments. I really recommend him for anyone travelling in Ghana, and especially for solo travellers. The vehicle was comfortable and everything was better than expected and I felt completely comfortable abs at ease. The attractions themselves were very interesting and I recommend visiting them for anyone visiting Ghana.

Highly recommend this tour and tour operator. I booked last minute but was still accommodated. Eric worked around the time I had available. I had an amazing time at the gardens, the cocoa Plantation and suprise stop at an authentic fufu restaurant!! If you book with them the itinerary is just a suggestion the operator is very flexible and more interested in ensuring his guest have an amazing experience in Ghana.

This tour has two parts, actually three if you count the pleasant drive up the mountains to Aburi gardens. Wait, make that four because we stopped at a little craft place where I got a carving that was the perfect present.! loved learning new things at the farm and gardens. My guides were polite, full of knowledge and very helpful. I was especially impressed by how much they helped me get around as I have disabilities of movement. I would strongly recommend this relaxing tour.

Eric was a great guide today and really made sure I enjoyed the trip to the cacao plantation and to Aburi gardens. He also stopped at a place to have palm wine as I wanted to. It was delicious. In addition he took me to a crafts village to pick a dress for an engagement party. Although I didn't end up buying anything I appreciated the thought. Good conversation along the way. Highly recommend this tour.

Our trip was absolutely amazing. Our tour guides were knowledgeable, professional, and kind. Loved it. By far the best tour thus far. We enjoyed learning the history of the cocoa farm. The information about the plant life at the botanical gardens. We even stopped to try some local food on the way back which was a wonderful experience. We wanted to see the university on the way home and our tour guides made it happen with no hesitation. Thank you to Rex and our driver y’all were absolutely amazing.

I very much enjoyed this tour to the botanical gardens. Learning about plants I didn’t even know existed. Amazing to see where the simple things we have come from. The cocoa farm was beyond my imagination. I even got the possibility to taste the real cocoa beans!
Frederick, my guide and his collaborators were very professional and dedicated. Even though I was the only person participating the came to pick me up at my hotel and I got to see everything I wanted. I 100% recommended this tour. If you are in the Accra are it is absolutely an experience to live.

It was a great trip. Fredrick was very knowledgeable. I didn’t think the Botanical garden would be interesting but I had an awesome experience. There’s a lot of history and culture in the gardens and the cocoa farms. Plus great scenery in the hills.
