Nii Mama is a guide, a historian, a cultural expert and a very well connected man. We began with a walk of Jonestown where we saw castles, forts, the lighthouse and witnessed a number of culturally significant occurences in real time (no spoilers!). His ability to craft history (his story) as it is told with the perspective of what may have really happened is unmatched. There is a true passion that emminates from Nii Mama - this is a MUST DO TOUR.
