Why take this tour?

Get captivated by the legendary history and extraordinary culture of the Ashanti Kingdom on this introductory tour to Kumasi- Ghana’s second largest city. This region is well noted for the expertise in a variety of specialized crafts. Get immersed in the ancient craft of weaving the boldly colored fabrics of Kente and Adinkra which are deeply intertwined in the Ashanti history. Visit the studios of indigenous brass-makers, potters and batik-makers. Your tour will be incomplete without a visit to the cradle of the exquisite cultures of the Ashantis- the Manhyia Palace, former residence of Ashanti Kings. Observe the orderly chaos of Kejetia Market - one of the largest open air markets in West Africa. No tour of Ghana is complete without sampling some of Ghana’s most popular traditional dishes such as Omotuo made of rice and peanut butter soup, a much tastier experience than the name conveys. Enjoy a short boat ride on Lake Bosumtwe, Ghana’s largest natural freshwater lake.
