The Weekend with Golden Rwanda tours

Being on the business trip I had a chance to spend a weekend with Golden Rwanda Tours and its owner Frank. And this experience was excellent! Comparing to other offers the price was very reasonable, especially for comfortable 4x4 vehicle. I had a very tight schedule and ordered 2 tours at the weekend, both started from Kigali and required to wake up at 4 in the morning. Frank was OK with that and both time picked me up at the hotel. The first tour took the whole day and was to Bisoke volcano, which was pretty nice, despite of the raining at the second part of the day. The second tour to Golden Monkey was a bit shorter and we freed at 11 a.m, so Frank suggested to visit Kivu lake and Kongo border as a bonus.

I highly recommend Frank to travel with, especially if you first time in Rwanda and need to know more about the country, people, history, food, etc. Travelling with Franks is not the official way when you have a strict itinerary and should follow the guide. He is always ready to show you some more about his country. On the way back we also did extra stops to grab some local food and to buy gifts and souvenirs. Frank became a real friend during this trip and his attitude to customers is on a extremely high level. Hope I will have a chance to visit Akagera next time with Golden Rwanda!

A Day Trip to Akagera National Park

This trip exceeded our expectations, not just because Akagera is a beautiful place, but also because Frank is a remarkable person. His customer care is impeccable. He is polite, considerate and knowledgeable. Very conversant in English and not imposing in the least.

We were picked up in a luxurious 4x4 at about 630am from Kigali and then driven about 2 hours to Akagera while we chatted with Frank. Conversation flowed well and wasn't strained in the least.

Really appreciated the fact that the one quoted price that we paid was all we paid that day. Hassle and fuss free! Not to mention, His rates are very reasonable for the quality of service we received.

After a brief introduction to the park and a very nice breakfast, we were whisked off for a day of fun. Frank is an excellent driver and his contacts in the guiding industry (at no additional cost) really brought the whole experience alive for us. They told us stories about the place and interesting facts about the flora and fauna. It's surprising how much you can learn on a safari!

Frank and our guide went above and beyond during the drive. The fun part was that despite having done this over a hundred times, Frank still has a sense of wonder about him, and that makes him go beyond the call of duty to serve his clients. He understands their excitement and wants them to receive the best possible experience.

We spent a considerable time looking for a great tour company and now that we've experienced what we eventually decided on, we just know we made the right choice. If you're looking for a great day out in Rwanda, look no further. Frank and his team are a great option. And who knows, you might even have found a new Rwandese FRiEND at the end of the day.

Brilliant 12 day tour of Rwanda with Golden Rwanda Tour company.

I can't fault the service. Traveling on my own I arrived a little apprehensive of how the holiday would work out but on being met at the airport by Frank Benoit Kanyamutara, his professional but warm welcome instantly made me feel secure and there was no incident in the whole trip for which he was my driver and guide to give me any concern.
We had no strict itinerary my request was that if I liked an area we'd stay a couple days if not we'd move on. Frank did his best to show me most aspects of life round the country as well as National parks, cleaning coffee beans, a tea factory and live music one evening at a bar.
I really enjoyed my time in Rwanda and have no hesitation in recommending this tour company. Advance payments made by bank transfere went through with no difficulty and I wasn't asked for any more than initially agreed.
A most memorable holiday.

Fantastic service, reliable and trustworthy.

We made contact initially as a result of an internet search. International Golden Tours and Travel Agency replied quickly to our initial email and proved consistently easy to contact. They gave us good advise and service before we travelled to Rwanda as well as while we were there. We hired a vehicle from them to self-drive around the country including Akagera National Park. The vehicle - a 4x4 was perfect for the job and didn't let us down at all. After touring we returned to Kigali and Frank of International Golden Tours and Travel Agency took us on a city tour taking in the sights of Kigali.
We have recommended to someone else travelling to Rwanda and would not hesitate to do so again. We hope to return in the near future and would consider taking one of the full tours offered.

Great Experience!

I had a wonderful experience with Golden Tours. The driver was on time to pick me up at my hotel and was extremely professional. I traveled to Akagera National Park and he had a good relationship with tour guides in the park and was very knowledgeable. The entire trip took about 12 hours, with about 8 in the actual park. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a reliable tour.

Unforgettable Safari in Rwanda

I booked a 7-Day tour of Rwanda with International Golden Tours and Travel Agency. Frank contacted me with additional information and the booking process was fairly straightforward. The proposed itinerary included trips to the Kigali Genocide Memorial Center, the Volcano National Park, a Gorillas safari, a trek up to the Bisoke Crater Lake at 3,711 m, as well as a hike in the Nyungue Forest Park and its Canopy. I loved it! Rwanda offers a great diversity of landscapes from breathtaking hills and valleys to stunningly beautiful lakes and dense forests. This involved traveling from the center of the country all the way north and then all the way south. Thanks to Frank's great logistical arrangements, the trip went without a hitch. It was very comfortable with great guides and security arrangements. Overall, I was very impressed with the organization of International Golden Tours and Travel Agency and very happy with my trip. I highly recommend this tour to anyone considering a safari in Rwanda.
