      Good times
      So much fun was had. Citizen Yaw and Kwame put together an amazingly joyful trip for us. When someone thoroughly enjoys what they do, their enthusiasm leaks onto all those around them. If you considering booking with these guys... JUST DO IT. I do think our whole trip can be summed up with just one word...KELEWELE!!!😂😂😂

      Awesome experience on my first trip to Ghana
      Really great experience with new ans old friends. All the activities were beginner- intermediate friendly and for young and older people. Really enjoyed the Elmina Castle tour and to accommodation. Yaw and Kwame were both great hosts and went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable and well looked after. Even with the challenge of slow food service and poor customer service from a local restaurant, the guys kept their cool and handled everything so positively.

      Pre-Wedding Weekend Excursion to Elmina
      We just came back from a pre-wedding weekend getaway and Citizen Yaw and team handled a group of 35 adults and children like they were not herding cats (and they were 😂). We were assembled on a luxury coach with AC with scheduled early morning pick ups, operating on European time (punctual). We departed Accra’s west side at about 7:45am and arrived at Kukum National Park around 12:45pm. We had a couple of bathroom breaks en route from Accra to Cape Coast which was great for the kids so that slowed us down a bit. We did the treetop walk at Kukum national park and it was great for all ages even my 4 year old did it and had a great time. We headed to our resort for a buffet lunch, arriving about 4pm. Traditional dancers entertained us that evening. We also scheduled a night out which we unanimously opted out of due to the long day which shows more our age than the wonderful tour team 🤣. They were even able to assist with organising surprise birthday cakes for a couple of friends. The next day was a relaxing start. We could swim and visit the beach in the morning then headed for the Elmina tour and boat ride after lunch. We left Elmina just before 10:45 am and arrived in Accra around 2:45pm with one stop so it was quicker to get back. Upon return to Accra we fit in a visit to the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and a drive around Independence Square. The team were so patient and friendly and there was no stress at all. Whatever we needed was taken care of, even tummy meds. What more could we ask? Great job guys we appreciate you.

      Citizen Tours are the way to go !
      Amazing unforgettable trip through Ghana with the best of guides. I must wholeheartedly recommend Citizen Tours! I traveled with my family : partner, myself and kids of 5 and 11. When planning our trip, I noticed Ghana is a rather expensive country and some of the offers we got from travel agencies were far above our means. Citizen Tours's all inclusive offer was honest and correct. The pre-trip visa paperwork was a pain in the butt : online upload of invitation letter from the travel agency, Covid certificates, Yellow Fever certificates (bring it as it is checked on arrival), 72 hour health declaration, address and GPS coordinates !?! (-> Google Maps) of initial hotels and travel agency....2 trips to the embassy. So don't leave it to the last minute. We had a knowledgeable, pro-active and flexible guide, perfect English and a friendly, reliable safe driver. Our guide Yaw picked us up from the airport and dropped us off after 14 days of spectacular scenery, interesting people and fantastic wildlife. We chose 3* hotels, some were basic, others more luxurious, but all were clean and comfortable; shower, toilet and airco always worked. The state of the roads are pretty bad so we spent more time in our comfortable van than anticipated but that's part of the adventure. The 8 hour trip to the spectacular Mole national park, I would only recommend if you have plenty time. Waiting times for food (> 2.5 hours) gave some initial frustration, but Yaw's suggestion to pre-order lunch and dinner certainly helped. It was easy to get cash from ATM's in Accra and Visa is widely accepted at hotels. However since hotel, food and excursions were included, we only needed to pay for some souvenirs and our drinks. Even though we meticulously took our anti-Malaria pills, we barely saw a mosquito. In conclusion : Ghana is a wonderful, safe tropical wonderland I strongly recommend to visit. Thank you Ghana and the wonderful people of Citizen Tours : Jospeh Azure (Yaw) and driver Frank.

      Accra and Cape Coast!
      Booking with Citizen tours was easy! The communication was quick and information clear. Joseph (Yaw) and Paul helped us with airport transfers and tours of Accra and Cape Coast. The transportation was very comfortable. Couldn't have asked for a better way to enjoy Ghana!

      Amazing trip
      We had the best time traveling with Yaw! It was a great experience, and we felt taken care of the whole time. We had many opportunities to learn history, see beautiful nature, and enjoy delicious food.

      Highly recommend!
      This was my first time in Ghana and couldn’t have asked for a better Cape Coast/Elmina experience. The tour was so informational and our guide Yaw, and driver, Frank, were so attentive and made us comfortable throughout the journey. Yaw is an Elmina native and provided unique insights into the culture. From the adventures of Kakum to the walls of the Elmina slave dungeons, this is truly a humbling and special experience everyone should partake. Thank you Yaw and Frank!

      Productive and Fun!!
      I hired Citizen Tours to lead a customize experience that included humanitarian work in Cape Coast and also lead members of the traveling team in a cultural immersion of Accra's nightlife and the Volta region. Co-Founder George Kwame was professional, responsive, and adapted to any shifts we needed to make. I highly recommend Citizen Tours services and will be utilizing them for future work and endeavors in Ghana.

      Ghana always worth a trip ☀️
      Ghan is a country with many facets: green landscapes, relaxed sandy beaches and colourful and crowded cities. Yaw and his team put together for us a tailor-made itinerary according to our wishes and also included a few of their personal highlights. For example, we tried a local breakfast in Kumasi's street food or were taken under the high waterfalls of Wli with the Ghanaian special technique. Always in a good mood, we were driven safely from place to place with good music and comfortable van. We got a great impressions of the exciting culture, the friendly people and the beautiful landscape. I can highly recommend Citizen Tours and would book a trip with them again anytime.

      Best team to discover Ghana
      Discovering Ghana with Yaw has been a really great experience! We travelled from Accra to Kumasi.. down to the coast and in the Volta Region. The whole trip was full of adventures, local experiences, tasty food and filled with fun and energy! Yaw took very good care of us. He has a lot of knowledge on the country and always had an answer to our questions. Frank was the best driver and it was great to have him as part of the team. My recommendations: go to the markets! They are fantastic. The harbor in Elmina is a magical place. The Volta Region is beautiful and standing underneath the waterfall was a crazy experience which I wouldn't want to miss. For me the experience in Ghana is not just about the adventures and beautiful landscapes. It's about the amazing and welcoming people I met all over the trip. We had a lot of fun travelling with both and I can totally recommend to book a trip with them and enjoy Ghana ❤️💛💚

      Ghana at its best
      Thank you Yaw for this fantastic experience. You showed us Ghana at its best. Absolutely tailored to our needs with nice surprises and great hospitality the trip to Kumasi and Lake Bosomtwe was a perfect start. The second part of our trip to Lake Volta, Wli waterfalls and Accra was one of the best experiences I‘ve had.

      Kwame was our Event Planner for our wedding and also my sons chaperone during our honeymoon and stay in Cape Coast. He provided constant feedback and assisted me while oversees to create a memorable day both my husband I will never forget. During our time there he made sure my sons gained knowledge of the country, participated in cultural activities and created life long memories. Lastly he provided transportation from and to Accra. He was always professional, polite, and helpful with any issues or concerns. I recommend him and his service to anyone that desires to see and experience Ghana. We will definitely will call on him again and recommend him for any future trips to Ghana.

      Fantastic Experience with Kwame
      Really enjoyable experience with tour guide Kwame. He organised for our Volta region trip to Mount Afadjato and also Wli Waterfalls He arrived at our hotel prompt at our agreed time, was warm and hospitable upon our meeting. We travelled to mount Afadjato and as we drove Kwame told us about key buildings/places we passed en route. Kwame made us feel relaxed and in safe hands throughout our entire time together. He was so knowledgeable about many of the places we visited we left each excursion enriched by the experience and with lots if knowledge about each ace we visited. He drove us back to our hotel and even assisted us in checking in, kept in contact with us whilst we were in his region and made sure we were well looked after. We can 100% say that we will use him again and we have made a good friend.

      An interesting sneak peak into Kakum and Elmina
      A truly exciting and memorable experience.Kwame was a knowledgeable guide and friend who made the the trip worthwhile. Being from Elmina, he had a lot to share. The canopy walk at Kakum National Park is one of its kind a must do if you want to feel the dense rainforest and enjoy its vast beauty. Kakum and Elmina are steeped in history and alongside the natural beauty of the place, Kwame's company made it even more interesting. I definitely recommend Citizen tours if you really want to enjoy Ghana. I for one will definitely go with them for all future tours.

    I did a bespoke 11 day trip that built on the 8 day cultural tour. Yaw was my tour guide and Kobby my driver. We set about criss crossing the country and it was a trip filled with lots of adventure, fun and nice surprises.

    They tailored the trip to what I really wanted to do, including hiking and meeting local people and experiencing the culture and food in the localities. It was lots of fun, I always felt safe, and there was never a dull moment. Yaw arranged for some cool tunes to always be playing in the car which just added to the experience!

    I came during covid and they were happy to wear masks and take the necessary protocols. We aways had a box of masks in the car. Don't forget to bring hand sanitizer, though there were also plenty of hand washing stations set up everywhere.

    Don't hesitate, just book, come expecting to experience a new culture and see interesting places. Remember to remain flexible, laid back and open to be experiences which will make your trip even more enjoyable!
