      TESTIMONIALS


      This trip was flat out awesome! Jay was phenomenal as the host for this trip and the tour guide, Nana was very hands on and personable. The group was fantastic - 30 people! I plan on keeping in touch with them. This is going to be something that I will remember for the rest of my life.

      I had a wonderful time. The history and the warmth of the people was outstanding. I thoroughly enjoyed touring the country and visiting both the rural and urban areas. I look forward to returning for another visit.

      I had a wonderful time. Ghana is an amazing place to visit. The history there is breath taking. This trip was an eye-opener for me. Do not believe what you here about Ghana, go see for you self.

      This trip was better than I could have ever expected, being 20 years old and to see something like this I was truly amazed. I encourage everyone to take this trip at least once to get the experience for yourself. My entire mindset has changed thanks to this tour. Looking forward to being on many more in the near future

      One word: INSPIRED! Thank you Maximum Impact Travel & Team!

      What an amazing and eye opening experience! Ghana has a lot to offer culturally and historically. You will definitely see that it's nothing like we're conditioned to "think" of Africa. Our tour group was awesome and I plan to return with my family in the near future. I highly recommend Maximum Impact. Thank you Jay for this amazing experience!

      This experience hands down has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had outside of birthing my children. The knowledge and understanding of what our ancestors went though made any history books they have in school not worth ever looking at. I encourage any and everyone to put this on their bucket list. It’s truly an eye opener.

      We had a great time. Wonderful people, delicious food and comfortable accommodations. Thank you for a fantastic experience. My only complaint is visa application support and assistance should be provided. We had an epic challenge with the embassy during our visa application process and upon contacting Maximum Impact Travel, they were responsive but unable to provide any support or assistance with our visa issues.
      By Nyrva A for Urban Intellectuals - The Gateway Experience Ghana - Feb 4-12 2024 on Feb 22, 2024
      This trip exceeded my expectations. We were well looked after by the local tour company from the moment we arrived at the Cairo airport. The accommodations were excellent and well-appointed. I was impressed by the warmth and hospitality we received everywhere we went. Our tour guide, Prince, was outstanding. A true gentleman and a scholar, he was exceptionally knowledgeable about the sites we visited and went above and beyond for our group. As a woman traveling solo, I felt very safe. I absolutely recommend Maximum Impact and plan on returning in 2026.

      This was an amazing experience. The cultural and spiritual enlightenment we experienced was unmatched. Every detail of this trip was meticulously curated to maximize the experience. Details that include hand-picked tour guides that gave relavent details that personalized the tours. We are already aware planning our next trip with Maximun Impact!

      This was the most exhilarating, enjoyable, and educational trip I have had in a long time. The accommodations were above and beyond my wildest dreams. Our tour guide, Prince, was extremely knowledgeable and presented the information in a manner that was easy to follow and understand. I hope to make another trip in the near future. Thank you for the opportunity.

      I had the absolute privilege of joining the Gateway Experience Ghana, July 2022. There's only one word to describe it - TRANSFORMATIVE. Jay has done the work and created a truly phenomenal travel experience. Because of his efforts, I connected with the ancestors, with Ghanaians, with Africans and with myself. I fell in love with Ghana and am now planning to move there. Jay and his local team - the incomparable Morris and the loyal Ernest - took care of every detail and provided a trip that was informative, enjoyable and safe. I don't think I could have that experience with any other tour operator. From now on, I will only travel with Jay and Maximum Impact when I visit any place in Africa. In fact, my group and I are planning to travel together again to Tanzania next year. It's just that deep. If you love Black people and Blackness, then love yourself by booking a trip with Maximum Impact!

      Customer service exceptional! What a pleasure to work with Maximum Impact Travel for this trip. They are thorough and very attentive as there are several steps to traveling to Ghana; the entire Maximum Impact team made the booking process seamless with EASY-to-follow instructions. All questions I had were answered promptly and professionally. And, oh my goodness, once you get to Ghana, you will be warmly received by the Maximum Impact team and treated like a V.I.P. Accommodations are clean and super-comfortable and offer all amenities. Don’t hesitate booking the trip if you’re traveling solo as I was. It’s a trip of a lifetime where you will meet wonderful traveling companions, tour the country with knowledgeable guides and wish that the trip was longer. I LOVED IT! A powerful and stirring cultural tour that also includes fun-loving activities. Outstanding job by Maximum Impact. I’m already planning my next tour with you.
