I didn't meet Rosette personally as she was back from out-country and she sent another guide Twaha (male) to me without notification. Twaha was nice though it's not in the plan of female guide tour. Rosette send me the message in the afternoon that she can help guiding around if I'm still available - though it was canceled by big rain and our availability. A pity. It was a funny tour with Twaha, he showed around the city with tons of info, however it will be pretty much better if team could notify me beforehand when they are not available.

Twaha was knowledgeable and friendly guide. He shared detailed information about each place we visited. He made me understand the cultural aspects of the country, various clans and the royal history.

Great tour, highly recommended. Rosette was very flexible to accomodate my preferences. I learnd a lot about the history of kampala and uganda, enjoyed great views over the city and had a splendid lesson in how to properly bargain in uganda.

We had an absolute phenomenal time with Rosette. One of the best tours I have ever been on! If you want to see the sites in Kampala, this is the tour! Rosette was incredible professional and kind. As we were the only ones on the tour, she was able to custom it to our interests and time frame. Rosette is incredibly knowledgable about Kampala and catered to all of our interests. Thanks again!
