About the tour

Jamestown British Accra is the name of the place we will be touring and it is a place of many stories, myths, and legends. We will start by diving into the deep sea that is the history and land marks of Jamestown and the famous fort where Ghana's first president was imprisoned. Not far from the sea, we'll take a stroll by the old light house built by the British, and the Jamestown Palace which was formally a fort. Get ready for a tour that's off the beaten bath and fit to burst with interactive sights and sounds.

Very interesting tour about a place I had little knowledge about before this tour. Such a contrast between yesterday’s world and today’s world.

I was overwhelmed b6 the history we got on that tour, real history that must NEVER be forgotten. Nii Laaye is into educating children just as I am, so it was great to see the children at the center so engaged. Great variety, sports and regular learning make wonderful students who become amazing citizens. I really enjoyed this tour, and HE CAN SING TOO!!! Much love.
