Fabulous Tour
Sep 2021
This tour was absolutely wonderful. It was very easy to book. We requested a private tour due to COVID and they were able to accommodate. Eric was our guide and he was fabulous. We learned so much about the history of Rwanda! All of the food we experienced was delicious. We felt like we were able to experience local sites in a way that we never would have been able to navigate on our own.

Thanks to Eric and the Go Kigali team! I highly recommend!

Had a great time, i felt like i got to see the city Kigali unlike i would have been able to do on my own. My guide Desire was awesome and i recommend her to everyone she gave the tour a personal touch.
The genocide museum was eye opening and informative but will admit a little difficult (emotion wise) to go thru, if you are too sensitive i suggest you not enter the children room, that was extremely hard.

Best city tour period!
Aug 2021 • Solo
From even before the moment I decided to take the tour, to the end when I was dropped off at my apartment, the process was lovely! I couldn’t be more impressed. I can’t praise this service enough.

The lady I booked the tour from, at the Boutique, was friendly and bright.

Then the actual tour was amazing to say the least.

I was guided by Eric and Mzamiru of Go Kigali Tours. Each stop had such a rich meaning for me. The milk bar at Mzee Yousuf’s place was sentimental for me. It took me back to my childhood, it reminded me of my faith and culture.

The murals were enlightening and so rich with substance. I learnt alot. Eric made an extra effort to have the Islamic center included for me. I got to pray at one of the biggest mosques in Kigali, the Gadafi mosque with such a rich history. That was truly special.

The lunch and coffee at Tamu tamu and Question coffee, respectively, was delicious. And the company was even better.

Then the last stop which was the Genocide memorial museum. Now this was filled with so much emotion and sentiment and education. My heart was so full at the end of it.

This tour was perfect. It made me fall inlove with Kigali, Rwanda and it’s people alike. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Kigali. Even Rwanda as a whole. It’s an absolute must!

Thank you most kindly to Eric and Mzamiru and the entire team of Go Kigali tours as a whole. Keep doing the amazing job you are doing. You are great!

Fantastic Day in Kigali
Jun 2021
We spent the day in Kigali with Eric on an upgraded private tour. Eric was patient, kind, humorous and extremely knowledgeable. We started the day with a slightly stressful situation regarding a missing mandatory test result that was needed for our departure that evening. He was calm, reassuring and flexible, working with the hotel staff to ensure we could receive the test results on time. We greatly appreciated the handling of that issue.

Our tour was very comfortable and at a great pace - visiting many wonderful places. Highlights included wonderful murals around the city, the Kimisagara market, a milk bar, views from Mt Kigali, a coffee co-op, a fantastic traditional Rawandan lunch and a visit to the Genocide Museum.

The day sped by as it was filled with information and such a wonderful insight to the life, history and culture of the Rwandan people.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to have a great overview of Kigali and experience an authentic day in the capital city of Rwanda.

Desiree was a lovely host for our Kigali City Tour. Although we just spent a half day touring the busy city, we found both the Genocide Memorial & Museum very educational.

Amazing African Safari
Jun 2021 • Friends
The entire experience with Go Kigali Tours was amazing! Eric and Bosco were absolutely top notch guides. They went above and beyond every day to try and make our safari the best that it could possibly be. The whole trip went far beyond any expectations that I had coming in. I would recommend Kigali Go Tours to anyone who is interested in going on a safari.

Grat experience! I had some very interesting hours together with Desiree who knew to tell me a lot about the backgrounds of every site. I very much enjoyed the visit of a milk bar, had a great view from Mount Kigali and a safe visit of a local market (where I felt like being taken at the hand which I actually really appreciated in this situation). I will also keep in mind how we stood in front of murals interpreting the art together.

Great tour! Great guide!
Feb 2020
I took a city tour with Desiree. She was a great guide. Knowledgeable, friendly, pleasant, helpful. The tour was very interesting, enjoyable and informative. It covered a broad expanse of the city's neighborhoods, attractions and aspects of daily life. It included a mural walk, Kimisagara market, a milk bar, a women's cooperative coffee shop (Question Coffee) and a great lunch at a traditional Rwandan restaurant (Tamu Tamu) among other places. Each destination was accompanied by detailed information. A great day, reasonably priced. The only thing missing was the boat ride. And I didn't even realize we hadn't done it until the next day. That just goes to show how wonderful the tour was.
