Tour started at 07-45 finished at 00-30. what a day, wonderful city tour of Kampala by Carolyn and James two very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides. They brought everything to life Churches, Mosques, Palaces and the University, walking through atmospheric markets bartering for your goods Fitting in an interior viewing of the Parliamentary Building even though the government ministers were sitting. Great choice of restaurant at mid day, we chose local food, Ending the day at a Cultural Show with a BBQ

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Timothy. It means a lot to me. I am so honored to have had the opportunity to do the tour with you and Jacqueline. You are one of a kind.

I had an absolutely fabulous tour with Carolyn. As a female traveling alone, she made me feel comfortable and ensured that I was able to get the most out of my 36 hours in Kampala. I learned a lot and saw even more while being able to get a great sense of what Kampala and Uganda are like. I truly enjoyed the experience and would recommend Carolyn to anyone--in fact I already have!

Date: Dec 21/18

What a day! So fantastic, and highly recommended full-day exposure to so many aspects of the Buganda culture. Our guide Carolyn was top-notch- friendly and informative. Her husband, James, was our driver and so friendly and knowledgeable as well. We were greeted by the community with music and dancing and the fun did not stop all day. They even planted four trees in honor of our family's visit! We traveled with our two teenage kids, and we all greatly enjoyed our day. Choose Carolyn whenever you can!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for having taken the time to leave me a review, Jennifer. And such kind words. What a day, indeed! You're absolutely right, the fun didn't stop. You and your family were such great sports. It was lovely seeing you immerse yourselves into the culture, taking everything in. The community made it all possible! They are just so passionate, plus all that clean air and organic food... Theirs is the good life. Let's do another fun thing the next time you are here. Happy new year!

This was a fabulous tour! Our group had some last minute timing changes that occurred, and Carolyn was flexible and accommodating. She really tailored the tour to our interests.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Megan. Knowing you were only here for such a short time, my motivation was to make sure the changes were sorted and still do the tour. You guys were great. I look forward to seeing photos from the entire trip.

Tour: Filming Words Art Project, Kampala, Uganda
Date: May 17/18

I wish I could give Carolyn 10 stars. She is AMAZING. A consummate professional. Her knowledge, enthusiasm, and passion contributed to making our trip to Kampala a truly memorable experience. She goes above and beyond all expectations to insure that everything goes perfectly. She worked diligently in advance of our visit to make arrangements to suit our unusual requests and went out of her way to respond to our every need. Her company is delightful. I wanted to pack her up and take her home with me:-)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: WORDS was just amazing and so are the people behind the Art Project. It was such an experience and I am pleased to have met you both. Thank you so much.

Being with Carolyn and James was like visiting family. It was great to have the opportunity to just talk about what life was like for them in Uganda. We would talk about the options for the day and decided what we wanted to do, sometime changing course mid stream. It was very fun.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Virginia. Being with you and Stella was truly memorable. Some people you meet and know you'll never forget.

Carolyn is a great guide. She made me discover the authentic Uganda, an experience that i never couldn't have made without her. If i had known her before i certainly would have stayed longer. Due to Carolyn I spent a beautiful time in Uganda. Thank you Carolyn for this great experience and all the efforts you made for me. I will come back.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Paul, how is everything? ;) Thank you for the wonderful review. I am so glad you enjoyed Uganda, her people and culture. It was such a joy traveling with you across this beautiful country. I look forward to our next trip in your new camper. I have got great things planned!

Carolyn was a pleasure to be with. She is a personal and engaging guide and she did a very creative itinerary for us to learn the history and familiarize us with the Entebbe area.
