Steven was a great guide! I was the only one on the tour so he customized it to my interests. And helped me procure a boda helmet in the market. Thanks Steven!

Steve took us to all the important places in Kampala and for those that we couldn’t go, he still explained to us. We really enjoyed the introduction sheet he gave us with pronunciation of important words to learn. Thank you Steve for sharing your knowledge and love for your land.

Amazing tour, Steve is very informative and will take you to places you wouldn’t normally go alone as a tourist

POL: Steve to super gość. Warto z nim pójść. Pokazuje ciekawostki, jakich nie zobaczycie w przewodniku. A i sami byście się bali spróbować. Jest też instruktaż z negocjacji na targowisku i podstawowy słowniczek turysty. Generalnie, Kampala to nie Paryż. Ale Steve potrafi zrobić taką wycieczkę, że Paryż się chowa. Świetnie opowiada i zawsze odpowiada na pytania. Niech was zabierze na rolexa i mirindę owocową. Bardzo dobry zestaw na duży upał. ENG: Steve is a great guy. It's worth going with him. It shows interesting facts that you will not see in the paper guide. And you would be afraid to try it yourself. There is also an instruction on negotiations at the market and a basic tourist dictionary. Basically, Kampala is not Paris. But Steve can make such a trip that way, that Paris is hiding behind. He tells great stories and always answers questions. Let him take you for a rolex and a fruit mirinda. A very good set for high heat.

I have been on quite a few walking tours around the world and this one was the most indepth and enjoyable one yet. Steve is a very welcoming and knowledgeable. He takes him time and looks out for you navigate through the busy markets. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who's visiting or wants to know more about the city.
