Description

Get up close and personal with the artistic side of Accra on this urban adventure that delves into the local industries that thrive within the community.

Join a knowledgeable local guide in Old Accra and get acquainted with the manufacturing industry that is very important to local community. Start in the historical town of Ga-Mashie and visit a local shoe maker that turns local leather (produced in the north) into footwear that lasts.

Next, spend some time in a traditional bakery, learning firsthand from a baker how crusty bread is created using a clay oven. Then, head to the harbor at Ngleshie (Jamestown) to see fishmongers in action.

While here, watch the local fishermen cast and haul in nets, listen to their traditional songs, see them drag their boats in for the day and bargain for the catch - it's a simple yet profound way to experience the true essence of Ghana's coastal community.

Afterwards, experience a truly unique display of craftsmanship at a quirky coffin maker's workshop. Next, find out how Accra's scrap metal is recycled and given a new life at a local factory.  

As Accra transitions into a modern, industrial city, much waste metal has been made available for use. Here, local factories turn scrap metal into everything from cooking pots to ornaments and art pieces.

See this invaluable trade in action, and marvel at how one person's trash can really be turned into another person's treasure!

Next, your Accra tour will take you to see bronze and tin craftsmen hard at work, where you can marvel at their talent and artistry.

Finally, finish it up with a short trek down the coast. Catch a car to the east to see the workshop and showroom of a world-famous coffin carver who makes magically shaped caskets for the much-celebrated funeral industry in Ghana. From there, your tour will end back in Old Accra.
