Maximum Impact Tours has been created to encourage international and domestic travel experiences. Maximum Impact Tours was founded by entrepreneur, playwright, author and philanthropist, Jay Cameron. Realizing that most of his life had been consumed working domestically, a trip to Ghana changed his perspective. His experience transformed the way he saw traveling. As a result, he set out to encourage others to see the world through their own eyes and not only through the eyes of television and social media. You are invited to join Jay and his team on their adventures around the globe.

This trip was a confirmation of everything I dreamed a visit to Ghana would be. Absolutely amazing and life changing!! I want to thank Jay and Morris for an extraordinary week!!!

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!

Our trip to Ghana with Maxium Impact was an eye opening experience. It gave a great understanding to the significance of our heritage and the place from which our ancestors came. It also raised eyebrows to the stories that we were led to believe as compared to what actually happened. The trip allowed us to see who the people of West Africa truly lived and how the negative narrative that was given was so misleading and detrimental to Africa.They are real people with real souls. Ghana may not be one of the wealthiest countries but the spirit and soul of the people was more precious then any monetary amount. The people were very welcoming. I saw similarities in our ways, strengthin the people and a genuine kindness. They are a culture of beautiful people, even with their struggles they are always working hard and smiling. We met wonderful people there and those who came on the trip. Maxium Impact presented a trip filled with history, food, nice accommodations, fun activities and even in understanding of investing in Ghana. The hosts and tour guides were awesome. We hope to visit Africa again with them and I would encourage anyone who can to come and see it for yourself. It was safe and carefree. Thank you Maxium Impact for a wonderful experience.

I Had a wonderful time. I was looking forward to visiting Ghana and its people for months. The length of the trip was perfect for me. The size of the group was perfect. Ground transportation, hotel accommodation, activities were very good. I enjoyed the food. The people are courteous and friendly. I was satisfied with the arrangement of ground and air transportation. It was to my liking. Even when we were caught in mini traffic jam our driver knew how to get around. I am grateful to Jay for the organization of sights and our guide, Morris was also excellent. Looking forward to joining another Impact Travel trip and running into some of the trip members who became like family. on this trip.

Where do I start. This was an extraordinary experience. You get to discover the culture and history of Ghana. The people are warm and welcoming. The food is delicious. This trip takes you through the hustle and bustle of historic Accra, to the home of the legendary Ashanti. You also get to immerse yourself in the rich history of El Mina and visit one of the beautiful beaches of Cape Coast. The trek through the Aburi Botanical Gardens is without a doubt enchanting. Those that embark on this journey with you will become family. I encourage anyone who hasn't been to Ghana or even if you're returning to book The Gateway Experience Ghana. Thank you Maximum Impact, thank you Jay, Morris and everyone that took this trip . I will definitely be back with Maximum Impact for another life changing experience.

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.
