    What to Expect
    What better way to understand more about life in Accra, the capital city of Ghana, than by spending time exploring the city’s many markets on a small-group tour! Accra is a bustling and busy capital city, and its markets are testament to that. See for yourself as you discover the beautiful artistry and craftsmanship in the products on sale, and learn about the area’s culture and traditions. Marvel at the exotic food produce on sale, and perhaps take home a souvenir or two of your trip!

    After meeting your guide in heart of Old Accra, stroll to the city’s Makola and Salaga markets. Listen to your guide and discover the all-important art of bartering for items that you might like to buy throughout the tour. If you’re lucky you may even be let in on a local secret or two to help you make the most of your newfound bargaining prowess.

    Your next stop is at a timber market near the Accra arena. Learn how wood is sourced from nearby plantations and forests, and the many different uses that the wood has been put to over the years. Spend time in the herbal market, where a huge variety of herbs, leaves and roots are on display. Discover how these plants and herbs are used in various local recipes and remedies — some for voodoo rituals and others for traditional medicine. Learn how these traditional ingredients are used by local medicine men to cure illnesses and ailments.

    After three hours exploring Accra’s diverse markets, finish your tour near the Accra arena.

    This was an intense, beautiful, horrible, confusing, disturbing, uplifting, powerful experience. In Ghana nothing is straight forward, even finding the place to meet the guide. I wanted to not pay ahead online, but pay cash at the start of the tour. I had a series...More

    All the colour, noise and excitement with a friendly guide, this was a great, if exhausting, morning. I never felt unsafe in Ghana, but often got lost! So it was wonderful to have someone show you around, and the way to experience all those delights...More

    No. Would not work. It requires fast walking over uneven terrain

    You can buy good quality hand-made bags in many places, from the public market to high end stores. It just depends on finding exactly what you are looking for.
