I loved my trip to Brazil; Kennedy showed me a great time. I can't wait to travel with GreenBookTravel again. Every day was packed with fun stuff to do, and I still felt like I had time to relax. My travel group was super chill, I enjoyed meeting everyone, and the tour guides were the best. Thank you :)

I took the Roots Heritage Tour in Gambia with Green Book Travel and it was an AMAZING experience. My main guide Assam was so knowledgeable. The tour was very well coordinated from my hotel pickup to every stop throughout the day to the highlight of meeting Alex Haley and Kunta Kinteh's real life descendants. They pay attention to the smallest details to ensure your comfort throughout the day. As a solo traveler this meant a lot to me. Communication was great and timely throughout the booking process. They even remembered and recognized my birthday. :) Do yourself a favor and seek them out for your travels. It was truly a quality experience.

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.
