FIRST-CLASS | PRIVATE-GUIDED: Uncover one of West Africa’s most popular destinations on this stay in the Ghanaian capital, Accra. Spend a few days exploring the historical landmarks and markets of Accra before touring the Cedi Bead Factory to learn how to make these important cultural crafts.


This 4-day Ghana vacation takes you to the capital Accra. It features first-class accommodations and private tours. 

Your trip to Ghana showcases the sights and sounds of the capital Accra, the largest city in the country, which is defined by its busy marketplaces, national monuments, and remnants from a colonial past. Head on a full day city tour to trace the history of the nation’s independence and get a taste of the lively market culture. Start at Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, which celebrates the legacy of the nation’s first president. Continue to the W.E.B. Dubois Centre for Pan African Culture, where the famous Civil Rights activist was buried, before reaching Independence Square, where the Black Star monument immortalizes the nation’s independence from European powers. Get your first taste for Ghanaian bartering at the Arts Centre before reaching Osu-Oxford Street to experience the sensory overload of Ghana’s busiest shopping and restaurant street. At day’s end, swing by the colonial neighbourhood of Jamestown if you have time, seeing the lovely old buildings and iconic red lighthouse that sits on the gulf. 

Another day, head into the east of the country to visit the Cedi Bead Factory and learn about the great cultural importance that these colourful red and blue beads have in Ghanaian culture. You’ll tour the factory, learn to make beads by hand, and have a chance to shop for some beads at the local market. 

Spend another night in Accra. At the end of your stay, connect to the airport to head to your next destination or return home.

Day 2

Full Day Accra City Tour

You will be picked up from your hotel this morning for the sightseeing city tour of Accra. It starts with a drive through the administrative and economic districts of the capital of Ghana. This 139-year-old city has a blend of colonial and modern architecture that summarizes the history of this capital city. Visit the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and Mausoleum, where you'll learn about the great life and works of Ghana's first President Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. The mausoleum, the final burial place for the first president also has the famous forward-pointing life sized statue of Kwame Nkrumah. Next, head to the W. E. B. Dubois Centre for Pan African Culture, where the great American Civil Rights Activist and Author Dr. WEB Du Bois was buried after his long stay in Ghana. You will drive past captivating monuments and architecture including the Independence/Black Star Square. The tour continues to the Arts Centre where you will have an opportunity to use your bargaining skills to shop from an open-air market for artefacts and souvenirs from Ghana and West Africa. The Arts Center is Accra's bustling hub for all things arts and crafts. Take your time to explore the center and enjoy a range of art exhibitions where you can view uniquely colorful art and crafts made by brilliant local artists. Experience an authentic African market environment by shopping for souvenirs and engaging with the friendly vendors who bargain excitedly and display diverse goods for sale. Next, visit Osu-Oxford Street, which shares very little with London's shopping hotspot. The only similarity is the volume of people and traffic. Probably the busiest street in Accra, it's the site of many bars, clubs, restaurants and boutique shops.
If time permits, later enjoy an amazing tour of Jamestown, the historic centre of British Accra with its bright colours, authentic tastes and rich history. The architecture here is a unique blend of Eurocentric and Ghanaian influences, a reminder of the district's history as the seat of British Colonial rule before Ghana's independence. Take a picture by one of Ghana's most famous buildings, Jamestown's red and white lighthouse that overlooks the Gulf of Guinea.

Duration10 Hours

Tour the factory and participate in the making of beads by hand in a traditional manner.
