It has always been a dream of mine to travel with my mother to Africa. Due to my mother's advanced age, I didn't want to let another year slip away, so I surprised her with a summer trip to Ghana. After a google search, Tours by Locals appeared which reflected high ratings & was the most affordable for people of modest means. Our tour guide Isaac provided us with a learning & cultural experience that was memorable. Our comfort & needs were met at all times. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your agency!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you

Isaac looked after us brilliantly during our three days in Ghana. It was a busy trip that we organised between us on Whatsapp We travelled to Kakum park, Hans Crocodile, Cape Coast where we had a great lunch and my sons raced with Isaac on the beach! Then Elmina fishing community, amazing! Isaac also took us to the airport on our final day. Most importantly Isaac was great fun, he got on well with us and our kids and has stayed in touch. I cannot recommend Isaac to you highly enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much mr Khan, you have a beautiful family and I did enjoy every minute of your visit . My regards to everyone.

Isaac was an excellent guide on our day in Accra. There were 4 of us and he picked us and our luggage up at the Tema Port and did a one day tour with him before he dropped us off at the airport in Accra. His English is very good and he answered all our questions as we did the touring. He took us to the sites that we asked for and also other sites, which made for a very enjoyable day. We would highly recommend him to any one looking for a guide in Accra.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Jere .

Noemie DeedUnited Kingdom
I booked a week long tour to Ghana as a solo female traveller & chose to go with Isaac as my guide based on the reviews I had read. I could not have been happier with my decision. Isaac was great at communication from the start & he managed to organise me a visa on arrival which meant I was able to be in Ghana within a week of booking the tour. Isaac is an extremely friendly, generous, safe, respectful, knowledgeable and approachable guide. I would highly recommend Isaac & Ghana to future travellers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Noemie and I do appreciate your kindness and understanding
Isaac was a wonderful guide. He organised very good transport and an excellent driver for our group of six. He was responsive to our particular needs and adjusted things as was required. We had a customised tour along the lines of the four day tour advertised. Highlights included Cape Coast Castles, Kakum Tree Top Walk, having a go at Kente weaving, crazy Kumasi markets, Aburi Botanical gardens, soccer pick up game, excellent Ghanaian food choices and lots of fun and informative commentary. Thanks Isaac!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Kerstin.

Mark WhitehouseUnited Kingdom
Isaac is a very knowledgable local guide who provided us with a great customised 5-day tour of Ghana including a full day in Accra, then a varied tour of locations further afield to Akosombo (Volta region), Cape Coast, Lake Bosomtwe and Kumasi. All arrangements were taken care of, transport was very comfortable (4x4) and we felt completely safe at all times. Isaac kept things lively throughout the whole trip and made sure that we enjoyed our short vacation in Ghana.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mark , Hope to see you soon.

Mark HerbothUnited States
In a few words, Isaac was personable, responsive, polite and extremely competent.We utilized Isaac during a professional photo shoot of a new hospital in Accra.Our equipment was held up in customs and Isaac immediately went about releasing it for us. Without Isaac we wouldn't have been able to even begin our shoot.Anytime we called, early morning to late in the evening, Isaac was available. Each time we ran into a problem, not matter how complex, he offered various solutions and was eager to solve it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mark and Sarah , thank you so much and it's also better late then never. i really appreciate everything and i will to see you again.
Liza S.United States
Isaac was fantastic for our Tour in Ghana of Kakum National Park, Elmina Slave Castle, Cape Coast Slave Castle, tour of fishing village and a great sightings of crocodiles at Hans Cottage for all 9 travelers. I was hesitant to hire someone off this website but it was a fabulous decision. He made the tour interesting, fun and made certain the day was run efficiently. I would highly recommend Isaac for a tour guide in Ghana.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for letting me be your guide and I did enjoy my self too

What a great adventure. Can't wait to return for a longer stay to see more. Isaac did a fabulous job at explaining and sharing the life in Ghana. He knows where to go. I am hooked on the food.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much and i can't to see you again.
Laurie ElitzikUnited States
Isaac was a knowledgeable guide whose ties to the different villages and communities allowed us experiences that were off of the beaten path (exactly what we wanted). The trip was well paced with one larger activity or excursion a day and then lots of relaxation and down time. For a 13 day tour Isaac came very close to hitting our budget, and was able to work wonders in getting us to see and visit everything (and more) on the itinerary we planned.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you Laurie and i did enjoyed your visit too
Fiona MacLennanUnited Kingdom
Issac and his driver Richard met us at Tema docks just outside ship and dropped us after our day tour at airport. Issac is a nice pleasant young man who showed us Accra in a day and looked after us very well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Fiona, and hope to see you again
Jabraddrick DurantUnited States
Isaac was an exceptional tour guide. Very patient and understanding on what we really wanted to accomplish on our trip. He was knowledgeable of all the destinations and places to go to get souvenirs and he even negotiated prices for us to avoid the tourist tax. He made us feel comfortable in an unknown country couldn't have asked for a better experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jay, thank you for all the nice words and i also did enjoyed your company so much, you were wonderful.
Franklin GoldUnited States
Isaac did an excellent job of guiding our group in Ghana. He knows the area, customs, and culture. He helped with everything he could to make the experience a happy time for the group and ourselves. I would reccommend his services to anyone.
O.b. WilsonUnited States
When we met Isaac on the first day he was on time, smiling and quite friendly. Our trip took us around many parts of Ghana. The history of Cape Coast was heart wrenching, but very enlightening. The walk across the ropes at the Kakum National Park was heart stopping, but very much a highlight. Isaac was a smiling and upbeat person. It was our pleasure to have him as our guide. He brought us to great places to eat and he negotiated when we made purchases. I think Isaac did a good job.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment and i also did enjoy every bit of the tour . and i hope to see you again.
John VynneUnited States
Issac was very accommodating and informative. I only had about 7 hours in Accra, so missed some of the sites of interest. Only suggestion would be to check with client on whether they want a meal before going to a restaurant. I would recommend Issac and would use him again. John
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much JOHN and i take your suggestion in good faith . thank you once again and look forward to see you again.
The guide made a trip which I had composed. He made a great effort to fulfill my desires even though it was not easy. He is reliable, friendly and welcoming. Communications worked entirely by the book. The guide can only get my best recommendations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are very much welcome Jeff
