What Tourists Say
We are always happy to hear your honest opinion about our service and the experience that you get at our visitor center!
“I would highly suggest it; the cost now being 5Ghc per person plus 50p for unlimited photos. Another strange thing: this town has garbage cans! In order to get there you actually want to alight at Nkwanta (not Ntonso like the map and book suggest). We aren’t sure whether the name got changed recently, but they dropped us in Nkwanta after we asked for Ntonso and it was the correct place… I believe it was somewhere around 40p per person for the taxi/trotro ride to and from the town”
“At such a short distance away from Kumasi, this is a great village to visit! NOBODY hassles you while in town and the kente weaving tour is a must-see while in country (whether at Adanwomase or not is, I suppose, up to the reader). We got very reasonable souvenirs (Kente strips at 5-8GhC, coin purses for 3GhC, etc) and learned from our informative tour guide, Seth, all about the process”
” It was an easy walk to the Visitor’s Centre because of the signboards directing me. It was probably one of the most straightforward trips I have made, without the need for asking anyone for directions. The guide explained to me that this was due to the community based ecotourism which was implemented in the village and the people were taught how to act towards tourists and not to harass them.
