      About this trip

      Souk (/so͞ok/)


      An Arab market or marketplace; a bazaar. 

      Shopping through the souks of Marrakech is a unique and exciting excursion and is often the highlight of a true Moroccan experience.

      Let’s get lost in the labyrinth pathways, of the souks of the Medina, as we explore the shops and stalls that house Morocco’s greatest treasures! 

      Ready, set, SHOP! Soukin’ is a verb!

      Accra Ghana vs T. Barnes💕💕💕💕💕🌍🇬🇭. This trip was a life changing experience, a holiday of a lifetime. The work efforts T. Barnes put into planning and hosting the birthday celebration in Accra for Deidra’s 50th was top notch and I am very thankful to be there for it. T. Barnes’s nurturing spirit facilitated unique experiences for each guest by showing us some of Ghana’s special places where we all learned and felt the connection to the culture. I fell in love with the place and the peace offered to me. I don’t believe anyone else could have led this journey for me 💕💕Thank you

      This trip which started in Accra, Ghana was the best I’ve ever experienced. My people, the cuisine, the sites and scenes, the various vibe’s experienced throughout the trip were beyond words and above any expectations. The hostess truly was the mostest! Her beauty, grace, elegance and patience exuded in the entire experience. It was a journey that I was fortunate to embark on with the beautifully amazing energies and spirits that were shared amongst the awesome black people I took this journey with. We laughed, cried, shared, loved, learned and embraced us! Experiencing the culture, the history, the legacy, tour of Accra, Treasure Island, the last bath, the slave castles and the naming ceremony were epic and life changing. Thank you for taking us on this journey. If you are reading this and have the opportunity, I strongly suggest making the time to get to know who you are, where you come from and get these blessings! Ms. T. Barnes is the unmitigated deal! Medasse Geoffrey R. Jones AKA Nana Kojo Ababio!

      Tanesha masterfully curated the trip of a lifetime for me and 7 of my friends to Ghana in celebration of my 50th birthday. She listened to every idea and vision I had and brought it to life effortlessly, down to the smallest detail. This was a trip of a lifetime and it would not have been possible without T Barnes Global. I have recommended her services to countless friends and I can't wait to book my next adventure with her. 10/10 highly recommend! Deidra

      All I can say is stellar! That is the word that comes to mind when I think about T Barnes and her global travel experiences. I had the extreme pleasure of having my first T. Barnes experience in 2018 to Indonesia and have since curated a series of retreats with her to Morocco and soon Senegal. Imagine, taking six of the most prolific pastors in the world to Morocco for a T Barnes experience and it being everything you thought it would be and more! From class to expertise, Tanesha never fails. As a global retreat leader, professionalism is my utmost concern and she always executes with full working knowledge, honesty and care. While honoring the wishes of each retreat leader for a customized and unique experience. In fact, when stuck in Morocco due to border closures recently, she transformed my business trip into a fully immersive Moroccan experience! It was the best vacation I never had! Lol! I’m looking forward to 2022 and the 5 retreats I have booked with many more to come in 2023! Trust T.Barnes with your global travel experience today! Tisha Dixon -Williams

      I have traveled with TaNesha Barnes. This sentence holds so much power, let me tell you why. TaNesha is NOT a travel agent, she literally curates an experience for your a group, based on where you are going. She arranges for the travel, the accomodations, the excursions but not touristy stuff, oh no...that would be too pedestrian, too ordinary, not SPECIAL, not intentional. Not only is TaNesha a brilliant organizer that cares for the safety, well being, and satisfaction of her guest, she does so as a consummate professional with an amazing price point. Always. All the time. Consistently. And without consideration of how "others" do it. She is communicates and is responsive. Provides receipts and payment plans. Let's face it, trusting someone with your money, to do the right thing, who gives you more than your money's worth...practically unheard of. Our 2021 New Year's Eve trip to Ghana was unfortunately postponed due to COVID-19 related issues. It was a Group trip so all decisions were made corporately. Leading up to the trip, we had emails and zoom calls and were so very excited, but then the outbreaks and shutdowns started up again. TaNesha gave us the information on what was going on with the airlines, the hotel, the climate of traveling during a pandemic. Some persons were feeling apprehensive (who wants to be stuck, for an indeterminate amount of time in another country if there is a lock-down?) and some were not concerned and were willing to go. Some people had jobs to come back to, some had children to care for...it was alot, but, TaNesha laid out the facts and had the group to make the decision. It was ours to make, we decided to postpone, which was for the best. Times are too uncertain to not know if you will be able to enter or leave a foreign country!! We are all paid up so when we do go, we just need to go to the airport and get on the plane!! The most difficult thing you will have to deal with, when dealing with TaNesha, is deciding which trip/experience you are going to take with her. TaNesha cares for you the way a concierge at a 5 diamond hotel, with your own personal butler would...except, she has developed relationships with people and organizations in ALL of the locales in which she travels and plans trips, before you get there so there are no mishaps. Even down to the meals and the T. Barnes Dinner Party (an amazing dinner for the trip participants). And if there does happen to be a situation, like Olivia Pope..."it's handled". Because TaNesha is not a travel agent and her name is on everything and her reputation on the line, she goes above and beyond, always, to make sure you are good. If I could, I would travel on a TaNesha Barnes experience everytime, she does it right!

      I have been traveling with Tbarnes Global Lifestyle Retreats since 2018. As a single traveler, Tbarnes is a great communicator, detailed oriented and transparent. These are all of the qualities that I needed to feel secure. In 2021, I was supposed to celebrate New Years in Ghana. As a result of the new variant Omicron, Tbarnes immediately scheduled a zoom meeting to provide updates concerning flight cancellation, Covid protocols in Ghana and the what ifs scenarios. As a group, we collectively agreed to reschedule the trip to Ghana to 2022 in hopes that the pandemic will be under control and that we can enjoy the Motherland. As of today, Tbarnes continues to keep the group updated on the trip and any additional itinerary ideas. If you are single and is looking to travel the world, Tbarnes Global Lifestyle Retreats will suit your needs.
