LECLARA currently offers a variety of different tours with trained local guides. On both, you will learn much about the history and traditions of the village as well as having an opportunity to meet residents in their home settings. You must book the "All-inclusive" tour in advance but otherwise you will almost always find a trained, local guide in Larabanga when you arrive for a tour you decide upon. Transportation to and from Larabanga can also be provided. However, we do recommend that you arrange your visit in advance: contact the LECLARA organizers.
