M & J Travel and Tours Ltd
Background and Achievements
AKwaaba (Welcome) to Ghana. M & J Travel and Tours Ltd wishes to welcome you to Ghana, a heaven of unique people, culture and traditions. M & J Travel and Tours is a privately owned business that has been promoting quality tours around the world under responsible tourism principles for two decades. We are pioneers in eco tourism in Ghana. From the high quality services we offer our clients and through our work in the development of tourism in Ghana, we have earned awards which include Tour Operator of the Year 2006 by Ghana Tourism Authority and 2003 Best Achiever by Amadeus.
We strive to be “Carbon Neutral” by 2016. We are currently assessing our carbon footprint to gain a better understanding of how much carbon is released by our company each year by calculating the carbon emissions for each of our organized Ghana tours so that we can offset and neutralize these emissions.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Our record in social responsibility in the communities we work in and the country as a whole is unparallel.We are supporting women groups in Mognori to help build programs in the areas of shea butter processing and marketing.
As part of our social responsibility, we are strengthening the Tour Guides in the various sites for ecotourism in Ghana. The support is in the form of re-organizing the Tour Guides Association of Ghana in collaboration with the Association leaders. This aims at promoting professionalism in the operations of the tour guides in the country. We also focus our own Ghana tours with similar aims.
We also support community initiatives aimed at properly linking up Ghana tourism activities to community development in the various eco-tourism sites in Ghana. This is in the area of capacity building of Community Tourism Teams in proper accountability and promotion of the less known sites through e-marketing.
What we do
We are recognized by our ability to create tailor-made itineraries for our clients; providing safety guidelines and promoting client-community relationships. Our eco-friendly Ghana tour packages seek to provide our cherished clients with uniquely designed sites that place premium on the preservation of Ghanaian culture and traditions and the conservation of our environment. We offer a range of travel products from interactive community cultural experiences to cross-country sites in the West Africa Sub region like Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso. We also offer a range of Ghana accommodation options to provide visitors with the optimal level of comfort.
To ensure safety of our clients, we provide a travelers’ code of conduct to all travelers so that they can make responsible decisions while travelling. This code educates them appropriate etiquette, cultural behavior, waste and environmental issues.
We sponsor volunteer activities where volunteers from all walks of life are placed in areas such as orphanages, education, construction work, health care and conservation. We organize home stays where they live with a host family to learn about the culture and the family life of Ghanaians. Our sister company, SYTO- Students and Youth Travel Organisation, is in charge of our volunteer placements.
