Kigali, Rwanda11 contributions
I took this tour as I just moved to Kigali and wanted to get an overview of the town and various neighborhoods. This tour provided just this. My guide Emmanuel was extremely helpful and patient with my endless questions about Kigali and Rwanda. He provided great information on the history of the country and city, but also was very helpful in showing me how things 'work' in Kigali - eg how to use mobile money, book a taxi, what various neighborhoods were like, etc. - eg requests beyond what the tour required. However, if you are just here as a tourist and are familiar with other African countries, you might not need a full day tour. You might do the 1/2 day instead. The restaurant we went to for lunch was fine, but a bit random...There must be places for lunch with a nice view, or something a bit more interesting...

Good day dear sarah w! We are very pleased to have been with you. We are also delighted that you had a good experience with us, and especially with our tour guide Emmanuel. Thank you also for your insights about the restaurant. On weekends, restaurant options are limited, and now with Covid-19 turbulence, the restaurant we initially used has closed doors and hence, we had to find an alternative place for lunch. As we move forward, we are on a constant lookout for better options for experience optimisation. With Us, You Explore Better!

We looked for a local, one-day tour that would show us Kigali. Countryside Tours was incredibly responsive to questions and flexible w planning, not to mention professional! They took extreme care w Covid restrictions and health precautions too. We were able to see sights and enjoy a comfortable day and tour... Highly recommend it!

We made a tour with Countryside to the Akagera National Park. The trip was very well organized and everything was just perfect - we really enjoyed the day in the park. The savannah landscape is beautiful and the knowledgeable park guides take nature conservation very seriously and can tell you a lot of interesting things about the animal world. We didn't see all the "Big Five", but some candidates of the "Ugly Five" and many other big animals and monkeys. Because we were so satisfied with Olivier as the organizer and our driver Emmanuel, we made a second tour with the Countryside to the Nyungwe National Park. Especially in the planning phase Olivier helped us a lot and patiently navigated us through the pitfalls of the online trail registration. Emmanuel showed us interesting places along the way, restaurants with local food and beautiful viewpoints, he was very friendly and helpful and open for all our questions. Thanks to Olivier and Emmanuel it was an unforgettable experience. Countryside-tours Rwanda is highly recommended!

Kigali City Sightseeing was a nice experience. Olivier my guide was professional and provided good customer service. He was patient when I changed the itinerary slightly. The stop points on the tour were ok. I didn't get as much of the historical knowledge from this tour but I did get to observe the beauty of Kigali. I appreciated that there was free wifi and comfortable transportation. The lunch option that was offered was good as well as the drink on the rooftop hotel. Overall, a nice tour.
