        A ride to Mount Sabynyo
        I contacted them to rent a car from my hotel (Red Rocks) to the foot of the Mount Sabynyo. Before anything else, I asked Red Rocks if I needed a car to go there. They confirmed. Unfortunately, when I arrived at the Volcano National Park headquarters, the guides told me that no, I didn't need a car to go there because the path started right behind the headquarters' office. But it was too late, I had already paid USD70 to Red Rocks! That's why I was upset.

        We spent an interesting afternoon in Red Rocks, learning about traditional medicine using local plants. The guide had a very high level of knowledge about botanic. This local active community is very frindly and also proposes other interesting activitivies, including beehives, banana beer making, baskets making... I highly rtecommend to visit the center, as it is way to support local community and have a great time!!!

        One of The Beautiful "road less travel" in My Book
        I booked my countryside walk tour with Red Rocks with a quick response to confirm my trip. I so much appreciate that because it shows that they care for their clients. On the day of the walk, Norbert, my guide, was there early to pick me up from my B and B. The walk started from the inn, towards the main road and entering the community. He pointed out interesting places and things to see along the way, frequently stopping to take pictures. The walk went towards and inwards the village, where you can see lots of fauna, locals walking and especially children swimming or taking a bath in the nice, cool stream. The abundance of corn fields, Irish potatoes and sorghum is a sight to see. I say it's so refreshing to be out of the touristy place and into the village where you can encounter things to see, local people who loved to chat and take pictures with you and children working hard carrying heavy loads on their heads. The walk was quite interesting as you can also see beautiful birds and lots of plants. I learned a lot while doing this countryside walk with Norbert. I think people should stop and enjoy the beauty of the countryside and book a tour with Countryside Walk with RR (ask for Norbert as your tour guide as he is very knowledgeable of the community).I always say, places that people often less travelled, always experience something great. I recommend this walk for people who love nature and the beauty of getting to know more of village life. Take your camera, dressed comfortably and make sure you wear your hiking boots.

        Favorite stop of a three week trip!
        I brought 13 students here for a brief stay (two nights) and we wish we had more time here! While the size of our group taxed the facility a bit, we had an amazing experience. Everything we did felt like it was part of a larger whole and even as a seasoned traveler in the bright continent, I was blown away by the depth of the cultural experiences (a lovely walk with a traditional healer and beekeeper, a bike ride in the village, tree planting with young children from a school Harriet founded). The true soul of the place lives in Harriet who runs the center. She is one of the most positive, cheerful, kind, and intelligent symbols of the new Rwanda. She radiates joy! My students learned much from her, both in terms of culture and history as well as how to follow one's dreams. I highly recommend Red Rocks and a good long chat with Harriet.

        Great place, nice people
        Self camped at redrocks and had a wonderful time. The staff are nice. They served us very delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. Went for a hike to Mt. Rugarika and enjoyed it a lot. We pitched our own tents and at night they arranged a bbq stand and campfire for us. Nice people.. Thanks, Harriet, Petersson, Firoz and everyone out there, we really enjoyed staying at Red Rocks.

        Great fun
        We spent a lovely afternoon with the ladies of the initiative learning how to make baskets and banana beer. They sang and danced whilst we wove and mashed bananas. We laughed, tasted the beer and joined in singing and dancing. They were lovely and this is a fantastic way to support local women and have a great time. One of the best.

        Extremely nice people with great walking tour
        As most knows, young kids have no right to enter the volcano parks... luckily these people had the great idea to propose a nice walk around in order to enjoy the view of the vulcano park! We walked 2 hour with Firaz and had a great interaction with local population and we enjoyed majestic views! I could only recommend it to anyone seeking for a nice walk around with stunning views

        Not worth a trip unless you’re looking for a hostel or campsite. Got a nice tour, but nothing extraordinary to see when passing by.

        Fun with the local community
        The site is next to the local university, and at first glance seems a strage location for a cultural tour. However, you learn about why and how the centre was set up, and meet the lovely and inspirational ladies that it supports. Great fun making banana juice, beer, making sorghum flour, dancing, basket weaving and drumming! Recommend it for a different view of Rwanda in a few hours.

        The best tours in Rwanda
        I did several different day-tours with Red Rocks. The hike to Mount Kabuye was great. We walked through villages that hardly ever see "muzungos", the views were amazing and the guide excellent. I did a village tour to see how Red Rocks is helping the local community. I helped out on a farm, working on the fields and helped cooking, amazing-a once in a lifetime experience. I also did a cycle-tour in the rural villages, beautiful scenery and amazing people. The best part of it all- the money I paid for the tours, went straight back at helping the local communities. I highly recommend it.

        Cultural tour
        My wife and I enjoyed the local crafts tour The narrator and ladies were really fun. We learned about banana beer ,pottery,baskets and other historic and current local traditions. We didn't stay on site this trip but will definitely stay here next trip to the gorillas The feel here is friendly with great spirit. The baskets and crafts sold here are beautiful and so reasonably priced to help the women. Harriet you make it happen

        Excellent Option just outside of Musanze
        Had originally intended to stay at Amahoro Guesthouse for the night, but they were full, so the Amahoro offered us this place, which they also own. Turned out to be great. Clean rooms, very friendly manager, delicious four course dinner cooked for my girlfriend and I. Only about 10-15 minutes outside of Musanze. A bit in the middle of nowhere, so expect to eat at/stay on the hostel grounds after you arrive. Takes an extra 15 minutes to get to Volcanoes Park from here compared to Musanze town center.

        once in a lifetime must-do
        We chose Amahoro to visit the gorillas back in 2010 as we wanted to support a local tourist company. Our children were only 13 and 11 and were therefore too young to visit the gorillas, so Greg arranged for the kids to spend the day at the Orphanage/School that Amahoro support while we visited the gorillas. I was torn because I would have loved to do both!!! The girls had a great day and we had an awesome experience which can vary greatly. The day before other tour members had visited sleeping gorillas, so they got awesome photos. Our visit was a full on action packed adrenalin pumping 45 minutes as a young juvenile visited and annoyed the silverback. Mum was breastfeeding the young and they were generally just playing and teasing each other. So what we missed out perfect photos, we made up for in memories!!! I was very impressed with my communication with Greg via email and would highly recommend using this local company so helps to support their own community. Go for it!!!

        Rwanda Tour
        We selected Amahoro Tours after talking to many travel companies and asking a lot of questions about Rwanda. It was our first time in Africa and had much trepidation about taking on such a big challenge and we initially went with Amahoro Tours because of the honest, thorough and reassuring answers they gave to our many questions. After reading some negative reviews about Greg Bakunzi, I was assured that he is honest. In response to accusations against him he told us , it was the decision of the government of Rwanda to close all orphanages and integrate the kids with foster families. He acknowledged that after the closure he established Red Rocks - based on sustainability which is the global winner for tomorrow, to sustain the local community using tourism and intercultural exchange to benefit the local population residing nearby the volcanoes. We recommend Amahoro Tours and Red Rocks respectively all visitors.

        Red Rocks Experience
        Many thanks to Red Rocks and all the staff for helping us have such a memorable holiday in Rwanda. We came back with very fond memories of the country and its people. In particular, a big thanks to Greg Bakunzi, owner and manager. I think having a good honest person makes all the difference. His sensitivity and local interest made a big impression on us. He certainly helped us understand the people and culture on a more detailed level and we particularly appreciated the efforts he made with suggestions for sights and especially with local guides, all of which were excellent. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to other travelers from around the globe.
