WOW. This is one tour you must do. Lucas is a much loved local with many friends.He was assisted by the delightful Winnie from 1000 shades of green travel who held my hand when crossing the road. I saw and experienced much that is not a part of my world. so humbling. These 2 wonderful guides gave me so much thru their conversation and company. Be warned, the visit to the slum is heart breaking seeing so many with so little however you will meet some interesting characters.

This tour went far beyond my expectations. Luc is an excellent guide. He lived in a slum until he graduated. He is knowledgeable and well respected in slums. I enjoyed the 4 hours and learned a lot. If you want to know Kampala's life take this tour. You will not regret. Thanks Luc :

It was a doozie! I walked through some parts of the city that a tourist wouldnt normally see. My guide brought me to some Slums in which people were smiling. In Europe we start grumbling as soon as some things go wrong they smile more than we do, knowing that live can be hard. The programme includes Little Mogadishu. Also the ordinary sights wont be neglected Kings Palace and Gadaffi Mosque second largest in Africa.
Take plenty of whater, please! Four hours of walk with temparatures that we only know from summertime... On the other hand you dont need to be a sportsman to do this tour. It was simply exciting!

1 star rating: I do not recommend this January 2018

According to the other reviews, this tour can be really exciting, so I guess, it is a question of getting the right guide. However, I can only speak from my own experience and I was very disappointed. We did hardly anything that was promised. Actually, we just went through Nakasero Market and the Old Taxi Park to get to the National Mosque where I was handed over at extra cost to a very knowledgeable guide who showed me around. In contrast to the tour description, I never saw Kisenyi slum or the Ugandan Parliament building, I never heard any stories from slum residents, my guide didn't know anything at all about the Slum Aid Project, the tour was due to all of that just 2 instead of 4 hours and I wasn't dropped off at the original starting point but had to hail a taxi at extra cost. When I pointed out the deviations between the tour description and reality, my guide put me off in a very rude way and said that he was told by his manager to do it that way but also refused to call that manager or give me the contact information. All in all, I felt betrayed and not in good hands at all.
