About
Cape Coast is a must visit tour destination in Ghana. The presence of forts and castles have made this destination a popular site for those who want to learn more about the history of slave trade in Ghana and other parts of West Africa. These forts and castles can mostly be found on the coast of Ghana. While in Cape Coast, we will also visit the Kakum National Park which is the second largest national park in Ghana. We will climb the Canopy walkway which will give us the perfect sight of the breathtaking view of the forest from above.

This tour came highly recommended based on the tour's reviews and surely proved worthy of it.

If you are looking for a day trip full of insights, this would be the best tour to take.

The drive to Kakum Park was about 4hours so prepare yourself for the long drive. If you want to avoid traffic, coordinate with your guide about the most suitable pick up time in order to avoid the traffic. The roads leading there are good so it shouldn't be a bumpy ride.

If possible bring cash as it is the most suitable mode of payment. You could pay with a card some places but the network is not always stable in that part of the country so it could be a challenge to get the machine to accept payments.

The food is really good and Rasheeda helped me select my Lunch. I would surely recommend Red Red if you are looking to try an authentic Ghanaian dish.

Rasheeda and the driver were very accommodating to my needs and helped me in selecting souvenirs for my family and friends back home. They deserve a 10 out of 10 for their professionalism and enthusiasm they have for their work. For a solo traveller, it was great to have their company on this trip.

Ghana is a beautiful country and the people are very friendly. I would love to visit again with my family in the future and surely take this tour again with them.

This is a great way to experience the herritage of Ghana. There are so many beautiful views en route to Cape Coast. The Castles were the highlight of my trip as they had been site I had been planning to see for a long time. It is very sad to see and hear of all the atrocities that took place there but it also serves as a great learning opportunity to do better as humans. Rashida did great handling our group and made sure we were always comfortable throughout the journey. She has so much knowledge about the sites and Ghana and a great company to have because of her good social skills.
Would definitely recommend taking this tour and it would be an icing to cake if you get Rashida as your guide.

The ride from Accra to Cape Coast and Elmina was 3 hours and the guide Rashida made it pleasant. I was traveling alone and felt quite comfortable. First we went to Kakum National Park where I did the seven canopy bridges, then on to the Elmina fort for a full tour with a group and a local guide. We stopped for lunch along the beach, and then continued to Cape Coast Castle where I did another group tour. Rashida accommodated all of my requests from stopping to buy fruit, to choosing a lunch I enjoyed, while being a gracious and informative guide. I would highly recommend this tour.

This tour was high on my list of things to do while in Ghana. My tour guide was young, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. She was amazing. The journey began early as we tried to avoid traffic but we were slowed down twenty minutes in. However, my guide was easy to chat with as we learned a lot about each other’s cultures.
Our first stop was the Kakum National Park, wear sensible shoes as it’s a good ten to fifteen minutes hike up to the canopy bridges. While on the bridges don’t rush or you’ll forget to take pictures and admire the landscape. We then drove to visit both Elmina and Cape Coast Castles. However, after you’ve heard the atrocities of how Europeans treated other human beings at Elmina I wasn’t up for it a second round of trauma so we drove past so I could see the rock of evil.
We dined with locals on Red-red with plantains that was delicious as the young and old enjoyed the sounds of the ocean.
The journey back was equally long but reflective.
I highly recommend booking your Cape Coast tour with Zainab Protours it was like being with a knowledgeable friend who didn’t annoy you.

My trip with Rashida for the Cape coast tour was awesome, pickup time was okay for us, we were pickup from our Guest house with a smile from her. She is such a friendly and loving person. We were guided by her throughout the forest and the canopy walkway was truly an adventure for us. Not talking obout the Elmina and the Cape coast Castles that are very educative , at some point i became emotional seeing the place our mothers and fathers were kept as slave. All thanks and appreciation to Pro Tour Africa, with you it was great.

Rashida was great! She was there to chat during the drive, guide through Kakum, coordinate joining tours at both castles, and set up food/snacks along the way. The tour guides at both castles were guides provided by the castles, assuming because training went into communicating the exact details.

I enjoyed the Cape Coast Castle the most. My tour guide did a great job of explaining the history and put the actions there into perspective.
The canopy walk was a fun start to the day - thankfully it was not busy when I was there!
Definitely eat breakfast before you leave, or bring breakfast to eat on the drive. The earliest you eat after arriving in Cape coast is about 2 hours.

Overall, would highly recommend this tour. My only downside was the drive. For some reason, traffic was exceptionally bad the day I booked. It took 5 hours to drive there, 4 hours to return. The roads in Ghana include speed bumps every 30 seconds or so, and police stops every 5 minutes. Because of this, I started to feel car sick on the drive back. If you're prone to car sickness, just be aware of this and bring Dramamine or something to help! :)

Really enjoyed my trip to Cape Coast/Elmina/Canopy Walk with Zainab. She was super sweet, on time, flexible and knowledgeable. The beach side restaurant she took us to for lunch was an added bonus as it was delicious and the views were amazing. Please do not hesitation to book this excursion, you won’t regret it. Full day of education, reflection and fun.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. My guides gave me so much helpful information. I appreciated the friendly demeanor and clear instructions. Connecting over Whatsapp worked well to find a good pickup time. I really valued the places we went and I what I learned there. I always like to do something physical, learn something new, and see unique places when I travel; this tour checked all three boxes.
