Hey there, welcome to my Guruwalk profile! I'm M Alqersh, but my friends call me SHARK! 🦈 As a Traveller, humanitarian, and media producer, I'm on a mission to live life to the fullest! I'm a big dreamer and believe that anything is possible if you work hard enough. Life is too short to waste even a single moment, so let's make the most of it! I'm a culture and language enthusiast and love making new friends from all around the world! Making connections with locals is my favorite way to explore new places and experiences. Unfortunately, financial freedom is still a work in progress, but I'll keep chasing my dreams! I'm always interested in meeting new people and expanding my social circle. I'm a sociable, open-minded, and helpful person. Let's make some memories and unforgettable experiences together! My philosophy is all about rewarding yourself and enjoying every single day. So, let's put a smile on our faces and make the most of life! Every day a smile :-), or two :-) :-), or three :-) :-) :-).

Tour description

Welcome to Kigali!  I'm your local guide on GuruWalk. Over the past 5 years, I've explored every nook and cranny of this vibrant city, discovering its historical landmarks, markets, museums, cafes, and more. 

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €15 to $50 per person depending on satisfaction with the tour).

Keep in mind we use a motorbike or taxi to move from the art centre to Belgium memoreal

I had a great time on this walking/moped tour. Shark's energy and enthusiasm make this a thoroughly enjoyable tour. Highly recommended if you want to cover a lot in a relatively short space of time - highlight was definitely Nyamirambo! I also took up his offer of a night time bike tour - the city really does look different at night!

Shark was friendly, professional and helpful. Also the the tour was not too long, which I really loved, I usually lose my focus after about 2 hours 😅 Maarten

This is a nice taster into getting to see Rwanda. Beware that he does use scooters for some parts of the walk which is at a cost.
