Hi! My Name is Kofi, and I'll Be Your Guide.

I was born and raised in Ghana and came to the United States to further my education. I’m now a retired Fish Scientist living in Buffalo, NY. Over the past 8 years I’ve taken 18 friends with me to Ghana. All of them loved visiting Ghana, and especially spending time with my relatives and friends. Those trips have inspired and encouraged me to start this tour business to Ghana to share this beautiful country and its friendly and welcoming people with the rest of the world. I’m also the President of Hope For Sisi’s Kid’s (HOSIKIDS.org), an NGO that supports a rural community school in Ghana. Another reason I was motivated to start this tour is to raise money for the humanitarian causes that I support: 10% of my profits from the tour will be donated to HOSIKIDS.

My tour is unique because of its cultural focus, where you will be treated like family. My guests will get to interact and visit with real people, including relatives and friends that span the socio-economic spectrum of the country. You will be invited to a luncheon and a dinner party at the homes of Ghanaians. My guests will also spend a few hours with very happy school kids, who are thrilled to have them as visitors to their school. The kids will entertain guests with drumming and dancing and invite them to their classrooms. These interactions with the local people, according to my friends who have traveled with me, is the best part of their experience in Ghana.

Ghana is the country closest to the center of the world, which is the intersection of the Greenwich Meridian (longitude 0) and the Equator (latitude 0)! A trip to Ghana is a trip to the center of the world, so join me and become one of the adventurous people to experience this transformational journey!
