Excellent tour with Fatumah. We went to more places than what was on the tour list. We got a lot of interesting informations and a good idea of the most important places of Kampala. Would definitely recommend.

Fatimah is a nice and enthousiastic guru who knows Kampala well. She shows you parts of the city you can’t find as a tourist. Worth it!!

Fatuma is an astonishing woman who has a very welcoming personality while being very respectful and gentle. We could not have wished for a better experience. She seemed to know absolutely everything about the city. She provides a very comforting and secure experience even while visiting the more hectic areas. If you are looking for tour to see the Kampala from an authentic perspective you have found your guide.
