This was TRULY a trip of a lifetime. Experiencing Africa for the first time by visiting 5 different countries was truly a life changing experience. We will forever hold the memories of the people we met, our tour guides, the activities and excursions and the pure joy of being in "Mamma Africa" in our hearts forever. We will never be the same...and that's a GREAT thing. And we are already planning for our 2022 return to visit some new countries and repeat some of our favorites from our first trip. THANK YOU for making a dream a reality. What a great way to kick-off the year celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and 20th year together as a couple! Truly memorable!!

Hello Tiffanie, The Landrys made it safely back to USA. We had a memorable lifetime experience. We got to be hands on with our people in the villages, feel their energy, experience our ancestors spirit, and allow ourselves to be immersed in the culture. Oh how I love our people, my Brothers & Sisters, & their culture. Names truly have meaning & purpose. Everywhere we went, the spirit of the People was warm, inviting, & receptive. There were some things & places we are not accustomed to seeing & experiencing, but we never felt threatened or in danger at any time. I can't say the same for places I've visited in America or some other countries. We just felt safe, as if we were with Family. What an overwhelming feeling of security & comfort. Now let me convey our sentiments about Away to Africa staff: "Godsend" 1st, Ivy was a true blessing & joy. She coordinated the experiences & getting people moving, although challenging @ times, but always with a smile. Knows Ghana like the back of her hand. Always available & quick responding to needs of the group, no matter the time.. Did she ever sleep!! Most importantly, she did it with grace & such a beautiful spirit. Never ever negative, always positive, in the midst of some negativity. Godsend! Next, Courage truly exemplifies his name. Everywhere we went he made sure the places were ready to receive us & our entry was smooth without delay. Great problem solver & listener. Very calm & confident spirit. Calming soul! Godsend! Kobi(?), WOW! Can drive a bus in any condition, terrain, weather, or place. Can maneuver a bus in tight spaces, narrow roads, crowded streets, but most importantly, done with grace, calmness & a big smile. Godsend! Paul, was the 1st person to meet us @ airport. From that time on, we knew this young man was a true gentleman. Got us to breakfast and checked on us constantly. He truly made our entry into Ghana welcoming & secure, even after clearing customs, which truly was not bad at all. I appreciate the Ghanaians for being thorough upon entry into their Country. Paul is a good soul & dancer. Godsend! Rebecca, quiet, but by the end of the trip, we all wanted to hug Rebecca. Knew her role and assisted everyone. Beautiful spirit & very talented. Love her story. Godsend! So grateful to David for organizing visits to villages. Naming Ceremony was powerful & emotional. We truly felt, "AKWAABA"!!! This staff, along with the People & culture, made sure that we would have a lifetime experience, that would change & challenge us for the better as we return to our respective homes. But definitely, without hesitation or doubt, that we will return....again & again & the home of our ancestors, who gave their life, that we might live!!! Our souls are overjoyed & full. Thank you for providing an amazing experience. Please please please pass on to your staff. P.S. So sorry we missed Kakun National Park. We were so looking fwd to that experience. Along with Cape Coast, visits to villages, & Boti Falls, those were the experiences we were most excited about. Tours were great. Tour guides illustrated the history so well, we felt as if we were present @ the time. WOW WOW WOW!!! Blessings to you & all your staff and may God richly Bless Away to Africa in this New Year.

This tour was an incredible experience from start to finish. All accommodations were top tier and exceeded our expectations. The guides were knowledgeable and, in some cases, went above and beyond to make this trip a pleasurable experience. Travelling during Covid can be a nightmare for many, especially with the ever-changing requirements imposed on many wanting to travel from the United States to a foreign country. The staff at Away to Africa ensured that we were kept apprised of any change in requirements and made the necessary arrangements to allow for a smooth transition. I must commend the team on the itinerary choices, we were never bored and entered each experience with a new-found enthusiasm. I highly recommend Away to Africa for anyone interested in seeing the continent. You will be "forever changed for the ordinary," B Colbert, Brooklyn, NY USA.

It was my first time on the continent and so glad I did it with Away to Africa in Ghana! The staff (David, Ivy, Courage, Rebecca and Kobbie were the most hands-on with my group) was more than Welcoming, accommodating, knowledgeable, patient, and just FUN to spend time with. I traveled with a brother and niece and was most interested in the history and the adventure and A2A delivered. Finally, I have made lifelong friends and we are committed to support of the 2 villages we visited. Thanks again Tiffanie and all the A2A STAFF May the new year bring you increase in opportunities to seek God and His promises for you. Love and Prayers, Lori L❤️🙏🏽
