We pick you up at your hotel at 8:00am for a discovery tour of Accra, Ghana’s capital.

Our first point of call is the University of Ghana.  A guided tour of the campus from 8:30 to 9:30 will not only give an insight of formal education in Ghana but also reveal the composite value of this premier University in the country.

At 11:00 am, we enter Makola, the famous open market to sample the Ghanaian commercial hustling and bustling environment. After a snack break, we drive to Jamestown, the oldest quarters of Accra for a cultural and historical dose of indigenous Accra. From the top of the 145-year old Lighthouse, we appreciate the unique layout of Old Accra and climaxing the tour at the Jamestown community fishing harbor.

At 2:00 pm, we visit Osekan Restaurant or one of the beach restaurants for lunch.

We then move to close-by Arts and Craft center, by 2:50pm for bargains of souvenirs and cultural artifacts before driving back to the hotel/drop-off point by 3:30 pm.

    Accra city tour organized by Celmar Travel and Tours Ltd on the 18 Nov. 2017 for our children was very amazing. My child really likes to take a city tour with Celmar again and again. To him it was very educational and the they way they were handled was perfect.
