Excellent communication and fast service from Olivier who got back to me via WhatsApp to help organize a lake kivu tour. We were already in Kibuye and so he was able to link us with a reliable boat operator and guide for the day at a great price. We went to all the islands and got off at 2 of them to see the monkeys and the bats. Additionally, our guide Celestin took us all the way out to the coffee island and washing station for a tour (separate pricing). Thanks so much for coordinating!

Five stars isn’t enough—Countryside Tours is simply the best! We strongly recommend them to anyone considering a trip to Rwanda.

From our first email from Olivier, we knew we were in good hands, and the outstanding experience Countryside gave us in this wonderful country confirmed it. The team worked hard to make our experience seamless, including arranging the permits and PCR tests necessary for wildlife treks. We had no delays or hassles *anywhere,* thanks to their diligence. And we were so fortunate to have Shadady as our guide for much of our journey. He was proactive, organized, outgoing, and fun! Just one example of his many acts of kindness: Seeing us covered in mud after our gorilla trek, he called ahead to our lodge to arrange for our boots, rain pants, and gaiters to be cleaned. It was little details like this that we never expected, but so appreciated. It made us feel so welcome—and impressed! I cannot imagine a better introduction to Rwanda, or more caring people, than the team at Countryside Tours. Murakose to this wonderful group!

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!

Did three day Bisoke Mountain Hike with Olivier. He was very professional to work with from the beginning. Handled all the documentation and needed permits efficiently and was flexible when I had to adjust my travel dates. His communication is top notch and he keeps you updated on every change. Departure date from Kigali went very well. Picked us up in a comfortable 4x4 vehicle and pick up was on time. Had fast WiFi on board which was quite thoughtful as there’s no network in some stretches along the way. Arrival at Musanze and logistics handled very well also. Had a great hotel and Olivier handled everything well. The hike the next day went as planned and we had a good (although exhausting) time. Return to Kigali also went well. Exceptional service and great communication.

Shaddad (means "the Strong one" in Arabic) was a great guide to this exciting and vibrant city. It is fun to travel around town with him. You wouldn't guess that Kigali has 1 million people, because everyone seems to know Shaddad and shares a joke, a laugh, and a smile when you go by with him.

Olivier was also very good about communicating and making sure everything was correctly organized. (North Americans: you should consider installing WhatsApp on your phone, because it makes communication easier in Africa.)

Words can't fully express how much fun I had on this tour. Olivier was so accommodating of my requests and knowledgable about his country. I learned so much about Rwanda on this tour. Saw so many different sights of Kigali from different angles. Over 7 hours of non stop fun, I'll highly recommend Olivier any day, any time. It truly was worth it.

This Kigali City Sightseeing was great because it showed everything you should see in Kigali.
Particularly worthy of note is an extremely friendly guide with lots of explanations and answers to questions.
It is also important to point out the ending of a drink in the restaurant at the top of the hotel in the city centre overlooking the whole city.
I would definitely highly recommend this Kigali City Sightseeing to anyone who wants to meet Kigali in one day. Sunday is a very good day for the tour because there is no traffic crowd.

Very good service and very knowledgable guides. Previous and during our stay in Kigali tt was extremely easy to communicate with Olivier and his collegues. They booked the accomodations for us. We did 2-days game drive, night drive and boat game drive. Apart of 2-Day Akagera we also did the City Tour and Gorilla trekking with Countryside Tours. All was perfectly arranged, always on time, excellent guides, very knowledgable, easy communication, comfortable cars, always helpful and friendly. We had an amazing time in Rwanda thanks to Countryside Tours. We recommend them 100%

Jean was such a great tour guide. He customized the trip based on what I wanted to see. We did enjoy a good buffet but I would have preferred a lunch at a restaurant with Rwanda food. The hotel had a great view of the city. Great trip.

Thank you for the wonderful tour organized! I could have not expected better. Shadadi was taking good care of me, took me everywhere, he even stayed one and a half hour extra, he deserves to be rewarded. My expectations from the tour were high and the guide exceeded them. Thank you so much for making everything possible and I hope you reward Shadadi for the good work and efforts he did. Cristina
