This trip was amazing. The cultural immersion, the tours, and even the food exceeded expectations. The itenary was vast and gave me a lot to explore while in Sengal and The Gambia. From walking with lions to drinking cow milk with Fulani tribesmen, Africa never disappoints. Kennedy, my tour guide, delivered exceptional service and really eliminated any concerns I had prior to going on the trip, during the tail end of a pandemic. Her curations of different venues we stayed at, to her being my professional photographer for my epic pics... she does it all and really makes it a point to provide a great service. I'm looking forward to my next adventure abroad with Green Book Travel !!!

I had a great time. It was pretty comprehensive and we explored so many regions of Ghana within the week long trip. The tour guides were nice and informative. Ghana is a beautiful safe country and all that take this trip will enjoy the richness of the culture.

I had the absolute best time bringing in the New Year with Greenbook Travel in Ghana. I loved their attention to detail, quality itinerary and authentic cultural experiences. We were given ample time to connect with the locals, ask questions and participate in beautiful photoshoots to commemorate this incredible journey to the Continent.
