My wife and I would like to express our deepest appreciation for your assistance in coordinating our trip to Ghana, Africa. Your willingness to go above and beyond to ensure our trip was a success is a rarity in today’s business environment. We also thank you for covering the extra night in Accra.

Words can’t express how amazing the trip was for us. My wife and I travel quite often but we both can honestly say that it was the trip of a lifetime. Since I have always been intrigued by the transatlantic slave trade, it was an awesome experience to witness firsthand many of the things I had only read about in books. I have to admit that since most of the books I’ve read about slavery were written by an American author, their writings can not come close to a tour of Elmina or Cape Coast Castle provided by a true “African.”

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the traditional Ghanian cooking class. I especially enjoyed a dish called “Red-Red” which consists of plantains and beans cooked in palm oil. Trust me when I say, IT’S DELICIOUS! We also had an opportunity to make Fu-Fu by pounding Casava and unripe Plantains. That was truly a work out.

Thanks again.
