My husband and I (both 30 years old) had a wonderful time biking through the hills surrounding Lake Kivu. We had a wonderful guide, though he didn't speak English, but he was a nice guy. I would just warn people that this ride is no walk in the park. I work out at least 5 days a week, usually more,... More

We rented mountain bikes from Tom and the next day went on a day long trek of the pfunda trail. When renting the bikes on the first day, we rode along the Congo-Nile trail which runs alongside beautiful lake Kivu down towards Kibuye. Experiencing a new place on bike is so much better than in a car as you get... More

My friend and I were taken on a two day tour by Tom, and fantastic support rider Twizere, from Gisenyi to Kibuye (about 100km in total). It was a great way to sample rural Rwanda while cycling some of the thousand hills that cover Rwanda. I can't recommend the trip enough to anyone who enjoys cycling. Most of it was... More

Excellent 3 day trip from Gisenyi to Kibuye. Two days of tough but rewarding cycling through rural Rwanda which was the highlight of our recent trip, even outdoing the Gorillas! Tom is a very knowledgable guide about all things Rwandan and he arranged good accommodation and refuelling stops, even the boat back to Gisenyi threw up a few surprises with... More

By far the best way to see the real Rwanda! My husband and I spent a full day mountain biking with Tom to places that we never would have visited had it not been for this bike trip. We biked 55km in 9 hours (yes, we were sore the next day!), climbing and descending through some of the most beautiful... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful day with Tom Tofield and his assistant mountain biking around Gisenyi. This day was one of the highlights of our trip to Rwanda and Uganda as it incorporated all we like best about traveling. It was challenging as the hills were high and the roads unpaved. It was beautiful as the scenery was... More

Not only does Tom offer some different to the average tours but his knowledge of the area is second to none, the locals appear to love him and his being European to start with means that he is better aware of what us tourists want/need to know compared to the average African guide who may be keen, polite and friendly,...
