We travelled three weeks through Ghana with Apollo. From Accra westward along the coast as far as Nzulezo stilted village, and north to Kumasi, from there to the east, east of Lake Volta and back again to Accra.

The journey in one word: fantastic! Travelling with Apollo as a guide, we visited local initiatives for tourism like Bunso Arboretum, Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary and Liate Wote, where we climbed Ghana's highest Mountain.

Being with Apollo made it quite easy to come in contact with Ghanaian people and that was what I liked most during this trip. While travelling, there was time enough to hear more about Ghana and to share thoughts about development, poverty, government etcetera.

I experienced that everywhere in the world there are people who want to realise their dreams and it takes all of us to make the world a better place to live in.

Small as his agency is, Apollo did a marvellous job organizing our trip and we appreciated especially that we could influence everything according to our ideas. The mix of an organized tour and independent travel, we are no longer very young (72 and 70), and the well balanced ratio of cost and what we got for it was perfect. We would like to thank him and his guides and drivers who were extremely nice and helpful.
