I'm so excited to share my recent trip to Ghana with you. While I've been to Ghana several times, I've never traveled to the Northern Region. This time I made a special trip to Mole National Park to enjoy some time with the elephants!

Our African Adventure

Reviewed By KJ - Atlanta, Georgia | Traveled to Accra ~ Ghana ~ Africa
Working with Akua Washington was wonderful. She is organized, efficient, and detail oriented. From the initial consultation, planning, finalizing our details, departure to Accra, and our return. Akua was with our group every step of the way. She listened to our wish list and from there created the perfect trip with the perfect mix of beach vibes (his wishes) and history and culture (my wishes). She provided us with several itineraries to choose from, and all itineraries were within budget. She guided us on local customs, what visa, and vaccinations would be needed, and how to exchange money. She also searched for flights and booked our flights. All that we had to do was pack our bags. When we arrived in Ghana, our tour guide was friendly and eagerly awaiting our arrival. All of the tour guides were very knowledgeable of the country, and made us feel right at home. I never felt like a tourist per se. I will most definitely call on Akua when I am ready to book my next adventure.

Trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By E & J - Walnut Creek, OH | Traveled to Ghana ~ Africa
When I first started looking into travel arrangements for Ghana, I felt overwhelmed. We had traveled in East Africa many times, but this was a first for us and with two teenagers. After talking with Akua, I felt like it would all be manageable, and more importantly, a wonderful trip. We visited our niece in the Peace Corps, then traveled some before returning home. Our travel arrangements all went very smoothly, from the early stages of planning and getting immunizations, to the last day of the trip. We were fortunate also to actually meet and travel with Akua for part of the time. We are so glad our paths crossed and we are so very grateful for all the work Akua and Michael did to make our trip a success. We would definitely recommend her services to anyone travelling to Ghana. Thank you!

Myers Africa Dream Trip

Reviewed By Sheryl Myers - St Louis, Mo | Traveled to Africa
Akua didn't miss a step in planning this African experience for me and my husband! She was very helpful specifically with the small things you don't think you will need when you travel. She made everything so easy and worked every little detail. I really thought this would be a challenge because we went to several countries in Africa. But because she's so knowledgeable about Africa it was a smooth trip

Akua was very professional and quick to respond to any needs or questions. It was extremely helpful that she coordinated the pre-trip conference calls so that we would know what to expect, pack, and itenerary details. She was thorough in the planning of the itenerary, leaving no stone unturned. The accommodations chosen exceeded our expectations and the trip also exceeded my expectation.

Best trip since we have been married.

Reviewed By Ayo - Snellville | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
My experience working with Akua was amazing. I was trying to surprise my wife. Gave brief description of likes and wants. It was complete in less than a hours time. She sent me some recommendations and with a brief description of some of the places I narrowed it down to an amazing place all inclusive. It was the best trip me and my wife have had since our honeymoon. Going forward I will always use her on these trips I didn't have to worry about a thing and most importantly she made me seem like an expert. All men know how your wife asks all the questions that we can't answer. We'll think again I could and did thanks to Akua.

Our Ghana Trip

Reviewed By Percy and Debra - Tyrone, Georgia | Traveled to Ghana ~ Africa
Akua was wonderful to work with planning our custom tour to Ghana, Togo and Benin. We started planning our trip more than a year out and prior to the COVID pandemic. She advised us on required vaccines and medications, getting visas, PCR testing and anything else we needed to be ready for our trip. Planning travel during the uncertainty of the pandemic was a little stressful. We trusted Akua’s advice and experience to help us make decisions about our itinerary. She kept us updated on travel requirements at home and for our destinations. What started as a three-country tour became an extended Ghana tour when Ghana’s land borders remained closed due to the pandemic. Akua worked with us and our Ghana guide to ensure we had a fantastic tour. (We enjoyed Ghana so much that we extended our tour for a few extra days.) Akua wasn’t physically traveling with us but she was always available when needed. Our trip would have been very different had we not used her professional services.

Reviewed By Henry J - Austell, GA | Traveled to Grand Canyon ~ Arizona ~ USA
Akua is the consummate travel progressional. In my opinion, her top three traits are listening, planning, and follow-through. She listened to the details of my vision for our experience. Then she planned an amazing vacation that addressed everything I expressed where important. After booking the trip, she followed through with travel updates and periodic check-ins to make sure we were ready for the time of our lives. I'm so glad I enlisted the services of Akua. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a seamless travel experience.
