Accra vibrancy and history brought to life!
Feb 2021 • Solo
The tour guide was very well informed on Ghanaian history & really brought the city to life via the tour. The sites were beautiful and they made sure to take great quality photos which as a solo traveler I greatly appreciated. They also took great measures to ensure the tour was COVID-19 compliant which was greatly appreciated. Great quality for money and I would 100% recommend to friends and family who visit Accra!

I had an amazing time during my tour of Accra with Nathan. He was early, courteous, respectful and super knowledgeable. He summarized years of history with detail from memory based on 23 years of experience. The tour was flexible, interactive and adaptable. We visited several historical sites, castles, government buildings, and a huge trading market. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone in Accra!!

Strolling in Accra, having your breakfast with fresh coconuts and bananas, eating street food, having a rest on the ocean front, waiting for spending the night in a outdoor bar or club ... Accra why are you so far?

What an amazing experience we had on the Accra City Tour! I would recommend this tour to any person who is looking for an authentic, professional, and intellectually stimulating experience in Accra. It is a day excursion ending with a late lunch, but we were able to cover a lot of ground and tailor the stops to our liking.

We booked the tour late on a Saturday night for the following Sunday morning and received almost instant confirmation of our booking from the owner. Kaya Tours allows for front door service, hotel pickup. They provided constant updates as to their arrival, which was satisfying to me as a customer because at booking you are only given a time frame (mild Type A personality).

The tour started at Osu Dungeon. We then explored Independence Square, the Dr. Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, and Jamestown. We also made quick stops at places like the Jubilee House, a street art park in Jamestown (where local artists were face painting neighborhood kids and doing photoshoots), and the beach for a break on the rocks. After a long day of sightseeing, Gilbert took us to a nice Ghanaian restaurant where we enjoyed a fresh buffet of ALL of the Ghanaian favorites--jollof rice, red red, peanut soup, etc.

The tour company is respected in the community. This was demonstrated by the interactions with historians and orators at the sights and also among Ghanaians more generally. I cannot thank Gilbert enough for welcoming us to Ghana! This tour really set the tone for my experience.

Beautiful Accra
Dec 2019
My son and I had a fantastic day with our guides Koby and David. The tour started with a visit to the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park. At the park, we were given a detailed history and overview of the President Nkrumah and the significance of the park. Next we headed to Black Star Square and Gate. We were allowed to climb up the Gate and had a great view of the city. The last stop was Osu Castle. Koby provided a detailed history of the castle and it's significance to Ghana.
At no point were we rushed. We took our time and all of our questions were answered. The tour was modified at our request, which made it even more enjoyable.
This tour is a great way to discover Accra and provide ideas for further exploration.

Horrible tour operators. My tour was confirmed a week prior to and nobody confirmed my hotel pickup. When I tried to contact them with the number provided, it went straight to voicemail and eventually the line was disconnected. I took a taxi to the meet up site and nobody was there. Wildly unprofessional. Save your money and explore the city in your own.

Amazing trip with Kaya Tours
Dec 2019 • Solo
I had the most informative and lovely trip with my tour guide, Ishmael. He’s great guy who maintained a happy disposition throughout, even after he spent ages searching for my apartment to pick me up. Glad to have made the right choice with Kaya tours and I will be going on more trips with them in the future :)

Knowledgeable guides
What a perfect way to spend a day in Accra. I had spent most of my time in Ghana in Tamale but had a day in Accra while I waited for my evening flight. I spent the day with Ishmael who is a knowledgeable local guide. I was impressed with everything I saw and even more so with the tour guides everywhere we went to. Thank you for picking me up and dropping me off at my hotel...a great bonus!
