December in Ghana is legendary. Hailed as the Gateway to Africa, Ghana will be jam packed with cultural events from the North to the South. It's when the Diaspora comes home to enjoy activities that display the heartbeat of Africa - its music, art, food and culture. December is also the time when AfroFuture (formerly Afrochella takes place), AfroNation and the Black Star Line Festival take place. These annual festivals aims to tell the story of Africa through food, culture, music and fashion. It is a festival aimed at reconnecting the Diaspora to Ghana. Our tours are unique combination of culture and tradition. Party, yes, but imparting the culture and tradition are a must if you travel all the way to the Motherland. Your tour will be hosted and expertly guided by the founder of HIM Tours, Daniel Okpoti, a tourism professional with more than 20 years experience. A native of Ghana, Daniel is also an expert trader and jewelry designer. Let us handle the details so that your pilgrimage back home will be a trip that changes your life.

Welcome to the Motherland. We will begin the day with the Accra City Tour. We will visit the Kwame Nkrumah Museum and Park to see the life and works of the great Pan-Africanist who led Ghana to independence from British Colonial rule to become Ghana’s first President. From there we will continue to the Black Star Square, commissioned by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and the place where most major events are held in Ghana, including Independence Day celebration held on March 6. We will end the city tour with a visit to the W.E.B. DuBois Center, one of Ghana’s most famous expats. After lunch we will check into our hotel rooms and our next stop will be DeBlessing Organization to donate our school supplies. Yes, before "turning up" we will ground ourselves in the history of the first country on the African continent to free itself from colonial rule. We will return to our hotel to relax, refresh, and get ready for a late dinner and nightlife.
