"It is our joy to bring this unique, inspirational, educational, and transformative tour to the diaspora and beyond" ~ Sankofa US


Our 8-day journey with Sankofa US was nothing short of extraordinary! From the moment we connected with LaNiece, we knew we were in for a treat. Her attention to detail and personalized service set the tone for an unforgettable adventure. Our tour guide, Samuel Kumah, and driver, Seth, were the epitome of professionalism and warmth. Their extensive knowledge of Ghana's history, culture, and hidden gems added depth to every experience. Whether it was recommending mouthwatering restaurants, exciting activities, or must-see sights, they always went above and beyond to ensure our trip was nothing short of spectacular. One of the highlights of our journey was undoubtedly the naming ceremony, a deeply moving and authentic celebration of Ghanaian culture. It's an experience we'll cherish for a lifetime. Sankofa US doesn't just offer tours; they create memories that last a lifetime. If you're considering a trip to Ghana, look no further than Sankofa US. Thank you, LaNiece, Samuel, and Seth, for an unforgettable adventure!

I had a great time and enjoyed the food people and Ghana trip. I would love to go back again. We lost a day in Country due to weather which was a bummer. Thankfully we did not have to carry bags and we had the excellent service staff and Bishop made this trip extra special by taking care of our outing while in Country.

This was the most amazing trip that I have ever taken in my life! It was full of both history and so much fun. The people that I met are new friends that I will have for a lifetime. I am so grateful for this life-changing experience that Sankofa US provided from the beginning to the end of the trip. The staff was so helpful and nurturing, the adventures were great, and the opportunities to see multiple cities in Ghana were scheduled perfectly. This is a trip that you don't want to miss. It is very affordable and the two weeks we spent there did not feel like enough, because everything was so amazing!
