“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating
that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea
that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya
You are not on this page by chance, a real new experience is available for you
to encounter. Your perspective about life is about to change. Tourism is about to make sense to you. A new and different Africa,
free of wars and disease and famine and the negativity is about to unveil itself to you - The place to visit now is Ghana.
Like the great American
poet Maya Angelou says in the quote above, it is through travel that bigotry, stereotypes, misconceptions and even the fear
of each other can be dealt with. So travel and see the world. Going to Africa has never been scary. You just did not know!
According to the New York
Times newspaper, Accra the capital city of Ghana was the fourth best place to visit in 2013.
"Akwaaba" Welcome to Ghana
We have been providing specialized holiday packages for well
over 25 years to people from all over the world and have provided the link to many individuals and groups to see and enjoy
a different kind of Africa.
You learn about the people and their culture, visit historic sites
such as Elmina and Cape Coast castles, visit a gold mine, enjoy the great beaches and national parks, learn to cook delicious
dishes, the local language, drumming and dance, textile printing, or even have a go at the weaving a strip of the famous Kente
Ghana perhaps offers the visitor (we call guest) the best
opportunity of rediscovering who they are. Ghanaians (as people of Ghana are called) are the friendliest people on earth and
every visitor loves the spirit and rhythm of this great people. No one visits Ghana and comes back disappointed. You will
be touched somehow by the beautiful land and its people.
With a rich history steep in tradition and a great cultural
heritage, Ghana offers especially people of African descent the best welcome
back to Africa. Ghanaians (sometimes to a fault) believe it is their
responsibility to welcome every visitor they meet to Ghana. “Akwaaba” which means welcome back is a word
you will hear all the time during your stay in Ghana.
Ghana offers you all that you want to see. A wonderful people with a rich cultural heritage as well
as a beautiful environment to enjoy.
President Bill Clinton in 1998, described his welcome to Ghana as he made a six-nation tour of Africa,
"one of the warmest welcomes of my career. It was the biggest crowd he had addressed"
You need not be a former president to receive such a welcome. Ghanaians are the most welcoming people on earth.
A visit to Ghana changes
your perceptions of life and the smiling faces of the people you meet, the history you encounter helps you to understand humanity
Ghana is a very safe country to visit. Many visitors from
Europe and North America are surprised to see women walking and enjoying
themselves in the streets late in the night. Until recently people slept
without shutting their front doors. Criminal cases are climbing but the levels
are no where near what prevails in Europe and North America.
Travel and Educational Services is ready to take you to Ghana for an adventure of a lifetime. Come with us so you can re-discover
yourself. We do not promise you all the luxuries of other parts of the world but we present you with a great, proud people
with open arms and hearts always ready to welcome everyone-Akwaaba.
