EMBRACE THE PAST BUT DO NOT LET IT DICTATE THE FUTURE………
MY FIRST TRIP TO GHANA HAS BEEN A VERY HUMBLING EXPERIENCE. OUR ANCESTORS SUFFERED ATROCITIES SO THAT WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO RETURN TO OUR ROOTS.
WE MUST EMBRACE OUR HISTORY AND TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF OUR ADVANCES TO CONTINUE OUR JOURNEY TO FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE. WE MUST LEARN TO UNCONDITIONALLY TRUST AND RESPECT EACH OTHER.
OUR DESTINY IS TO CONTINUE AND STRIVE FORWARD, OUR FUTURE IS OUR CHILDREN.

I had a very good time in Ghana and will be back with my family, Slutch tours made my stay very comfortable and memorable. good work done, Sly and your team of experts. Keep up the good work.
Dick Washington – Texas
Visiting and experiencing Ghana with Sly as my guide was fantastic, he managed to arrange so much, and was able to arrange with places I was to visit, explained the history and customs, and kept me informed on what I was able to safely eat and drink while at the same time introducing me to many Ghanaian foods. Ghana is a safe place to visit, and the people pleasant, and many can speak a form of English, although it’s not always easy to communicate with everyone. Guides and those dealing with tourists a lot just about everywhere through the country are easy to understand. Many of the roads are not on any map, and some are less than ideal. Like many other places, you also find some people who expect money from tourists. Having Sly as my driver and guide overcame the difficulties that I would have had, which made my trip both highly successful and enjoyable. Many of the galleries on this website contain a selection of the photographs I was able to take ranging from old forts to wildlife to cloth-making to a funeral. You can find out more about the places Sly and I visited on the Photographers Resource, Ghana Portal. I can without hesitation recommend anyone visiting Ghana to use the services that Sly and Slutch Tours can offer.

After having a lifelong fascination with Africa and a long-standing desire to visit; my wife and I recently had the opportunity to go to Ghana. Our experience was both pleasurable and memorable due largely to the hospitality and expertise of our tour guide, Sly Hutchison: From the markets of Accra to the Slave Castles of Cape Coast to the Ashanti culture of Kumasi (as well as the many villages in between); we have given an informative presentation that not only fascinated but left us wanted to learn more. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this tour to anyone who is considering visiting Ghana.
Mark Echols and Bisila Bokoko-Echols, New York, USA
We want to thank you for a most wonderful 2-day stay in Kumasi, we feel that in the short time you gave us a good overview of the city and the surrounding areas, we have already thanked yaa for giving us you, she was so right that you are an expert tour guide and a most pleasant person to spend time with. We will also recommend you to anyone we meet that wants to understand and see Kumasi through the eye of one who knows and loves it. Thank YOU, Thank YOU!!!!!

This was my second homecoming to Ghana, but my first experience with Sly. It was truly a pleasure! Sly served as an invaluable and resourceful guide as we traveled throughout the various regions.
Sly is very intelligent, witty, and funny. I hope he continues to lead many more groups in the future. And I look forward to working with him again.

Sly, coming home has made me whole. Ghana has confirmed what time envisage as witnessed through my people spirit. Nothing happens by accident. I was meant to be with you at this appointed time. I have been blessed by your presence. Thank you for your time and love. You are truly gifted. May God bless you and our ancestors giving you the desires of your heart.
Kwesi, Sacramento, CA. USA
Sly; Your chaperoning our group was done in a highly professional and intellectually stimulating manner. I was especially appreciative of the points of interest that you showed us that other travelers likely miss, for example, the coffin maker and the last wash site. The next time I come I will contact you.
Wayne Moore, Los Angeles, CA. USA
Papa Lion. This was my first trip home and you have made it more than i could have ever expected.
Your time with us as a tour guide was very informative and interesting. Your morning and evening proverbs were always anticipated and you are a master story teller.
It is so nice to know that when I return, my papa lion will be there waiting (smile)
