A wonderful tour, for people who want to experience Kampala's rich and colorful arts and culture scene and discover hidden gems that would otherwise not be seen. The Faculty of Fine Arts on the campus of Uganda's most prestigious university, fantastic art galleries and fashion designers. In addition, the incredibly nice and competent accompaniment of tour guide Arthur, who speaks fluent German and English and took much more time for us than planned. And Andrew, our patient, relaxed and very very friendly driver. Definitely recommended for everyone who wants to get to know Kampala from a completely different side!

Arthur speaks very good English. He talked enthusiastically about the history of Uganda and Entebbe, the role of the English in history and the origin of the state. Politics was discussed, as well as the latest developments, the consequences of Covid and Ebola. In short, a clear tour with attention to questions and interests.

We spent a very pleasant afternoon walking and learning about Entebbe. The Botanical Gardens are a must-see and the Rolex was delicious! Amos was very nice and knowledgeable. But remember hats and sunscreen!

Had a great, impressive time. Guide Arthur and driver Ibram were great and responded to everything. Really took us into the foreign culture!

It was a wonderful experience for us. We loved our guide “Ham” , he made the day special for us. Thank You
