Great to learn about the city and its history

It was such a great experience to explore the different areas of Kigali and learn more about its history.

Going to the Genocide Memorial is a must for anyone visiting Kigali.

It is very well made and makes you appreciate how far this amazing country has come since the last 25 years.

The Genocide memorial is well done and very sobering. It drives home what an amazing recovery has taken place in Rwanda

Great Trip

The city tour was great. It was neat to see the entire city and the landscape.

The Genocide Memorial Tour is an absolute must if you are in Kigali. We spent almost 3 hours in the Memorial, and could have easily spent 3 more hours. Although it is heart-wrenching, I think it is absolutely important to experience this and honor those who lost their lives.

Very thought provoking.

Rwanda is a place where you need to pay your respects to the dead.

City & Genocide Memorial Tour review

Sula, our excellent driver/guide, started out with a driving tour of some of the important areas of the city, and finished at Kigali Genocide Memorial. We took longer than expected going through the very affecting exhibits, but Sula was perfectly OK waiting as long as we needed. The KGL was a very worthwhile stop. Learning more about the genocide makes the current peaceful condition that much more amazing.

We expected lunch at Hotel Mille Collines (the original “Hotel Rwanda”) and were a bit disappointed to be redirected to a different hotel. Lunch was lunch, but the fame of Mille Collines was an attraction that we were looking forward to. I understand the reason for the change, but Mille Collines should not have been promised in the itinerary.

City & Genocide Memorial Tour review

Must go when you travel to Rwanda. Very moving and impressive.

Gives good background on the issue, with enough nuance on a very delicate and complicated matter.

City & Genocide Memorial Tour review

I had already done a city tour by the time I met Safari, so we went straight to the genocide museum. The museum is very well done; the content is harrowing. The gardens are peaceful and encourage reflection.

It was interesting to hear from Safari, and to have him answer my questions.
