“We had a wonderful full 2 hour tour with John while staying in Annapolis. He was great! Very knowledgeable, and just a delight to be with during the tour. Urban Adventures tours are really a good deal too. Being able to enjoy the town you are touring in with a "private" Tour Guide is a super experience! Thanks John!!”

“The tour guide had a very in depth knowledge of the area and the customs of Japan and their traditions. The information provided to us about the area and the food customs were relevant and interesting. I would definitely be recommending this to anyone else travelling to Japan.”

“Took the Mekong Discovery tour hoping to get a look into how people live their lives in the Mekong delta and we were not disappointed. Our guide, Tan was really enthusiastic and engaging and spoke perfect English. He really made the tour worth while! All the places we stopped at were great and we did not feel at all rushed to move around. We were able to get both the touristy side of the delta, the historic and authentic side and were even able to get a taste of local produce with this group. I would absolutely recommend!”

Get acquainted with the unique flavours and ingredients of West African cuisine on this Kumasi culinary adventure.


Join your local guide and set off for a market visit for some bargaining lessons amongst the colourful produce. Take the time to learn a little about bargaining, as well as the various uses of spices and other key ingredients in local and national cuisines. With markets playing an integral part in modern African life, be sure to soak it all in, wander the market aisles and discover what's on offer.


After the market visit, meet up with an experienced local home cook to learn how to prepare a delicious, traditional Ghanaian feast. With a variety of tribes all coexisting within the country, there are many different influences present in the cuisine of Ghana, so this experience promises to be both informative and supremely tasty.


Take your first steps towards mastering Ghana's cooking style by learning how to cook one of the staples of Ghanaian food known as wakye. This simple yet filling meal of beans and rice, flavoured with spices, is considered a local delicacy and is a hit with vegetarians. Also on the menu is koose, a snack made from fried beans, which is a popular street food with locals and travellers alike. Don't forget to indulge in your new Ghanaian cooking prowess by sampling your culinary creations!


With a full stomach and a range of new cooking skills ready to use in your own kitchen back home, your Kumasi food tour comes to a close. Keep this experience in your back pocket - you never know when you might want to break out the wakye back home!
