Very reliable, experienced guided tours
Gorilla tours is a very reliable company. During our booking, They kept me informd all the time, all our questions were anserd very prompt. Price/ guarantee is very Good as well.
. During our 4 day trip we had a very pleasant, humoristic and experienced driver who was also our guide. Nothing was to much for Him, he was very friendly and pleasant to be with. His name was James Wanduse. I would really recommend HIM!

unforgettable experience, over the top our driver/guide Ronald
we spent 16 days visiting Murchinson, Kibale, Queen Elisabeth, Lake Bunyonyi, Ruhija for gorilla trekking, Kisoro and Lake Mburo. Our guide, Ronald, was always ready to satisfy every single request we had : from coffee plantation, tea factory, cacoa fruits, not ot mention pineapple or any kind of food we wanted. Fantastic !!
Gorilla trekking was breathtaking, with two silverbacks just in front of us. Trakker and rangers in Bwindi are proud of their job and transfer this passion to people visiting gorillas. Gorilla tours is a very reliable company , where taking care of their customers is a must.
An outstanding tour of Southwest Uganda
The whole booking process from the outset was friendly, relaxed and helpful. All the accommodation was of a high standard. You can tailor-make changes to the itinerary or accommodation (we did for a few nights but the places offered by Gorilla Tours were really good). Gorilla trekking was the highlight but there is so much else too - chimps and plenty of elephants, warthogs, hippos. And so many birds. Even if you don't know anything about birds it is really worth bringing good binoculars (we brought rubbish ones - mistake) and a decent bird book. You will be amazed and may go home an expert.
Our guide/driver/ornithologist was Charles. He was the nicest guy and always calm, courteous and kind. He drove carefully and always pulled over if he needed to use his phone. And he knew everything about birds and could spot them with his bare eyes even when we struggled with binoculars. I think we were very lucky as everyone we encountered seemed to know and respect him. And a lot of the drivers with other tours were simply that - drivers. My only regret is that we (Charles that is) spotted a really rare bird but it simply did not come out clearly on camera.
Unforgettable trip and terrific guide. We will be back!

Gorillas in the Impenetrable forest.
From my first prompt response from Violet, to being dropped off at my hotel at the end of the trip, the Gorilla Tours staff were at the top of their game - helpful, solicitous and passionate about their country & what it has to offer the visitor. The hour we spent with the gorillas was probably my top wildlife experience ever (beating the Red deer rut in Scotland and polar bears in the Arctic) and I have unforgetable memories of the Silverback 'laughing' at the antics of the youngsters crashing down through the trees and the babies beating their chests at us in true TV Tarzan fashion and........ Go and see for yourselves.

Magical Experience with Gorilla Tours
While every tour will take you to the jungle to see gorillas, I believe Gorilla Tours did exceptional in the following areas:
1.) Driver was really nice and friendly! This is so important as you will spend hours in the vehicle and its nice to be feel comfortable with the driver from the first second. He made us feel safe on the entire drive and was easy to make candid conversation with.
2) Lodging was incredible. We really enjoyed the dinning room which felt like a family house. You sit at table in a large living room and are served delicious food. The ambiance was just perfect and simple.

evrything was good, both the organization and the country; monutain gorillas are top experience
we googled by chance for "gorilla tours" and it came out that there was a tour operator named Gorilla Tours. we found immediately the trip we wanted to do. we checked even other tours but this one was the best for quality and price, according to us. we exchanged emails with the lady running the tour operator and she was always fast and clear with their answers and explanations. the organization was very good, we didn't experience any issue in two weeks. I was very happy of the variety of activities during the tour, even because the country areas and animals are very different. the car and the guide/driver were perfect. the accommodations, even not self-contained as we chose, were comfortable and clean. the food at the lodges was always good and made with the fresh things the country offers and the quantity they give you is surely more than enough. we were very happy with Gorilla Tours and I surely advise to use it to visit Uganda. the tour we chose was not with luxury accommodation, but you have all comfort and cleaness you need. even the plugs in your tent to recharge cameras, phones and so on. the ratio of quality vs price was correct, I believe. for those who love dogs as me, they also keep a friendly dog in most of the lodges visited (especially I loved Sushi in Kisoro Travellers Lodge and Simba in Entebbe Airport Guesthouse). I thank Gorilla Tours people for making our vacation special and unforgettable.

A dream came true - Amazing Gorilla tour
The organisation starting with the booking until the end of the tour was perfect. Our driver was on time and super friendly, the 2 lodges I stayed in were clean, comfortable and the service was great. The final jungle tour with the guides was very professional. I can recommend this operator and hope that everybody enjoys the trip the same way I did. Thanks to all who were involved in my dream....

I only use "Gorilla Tours"
I have been working with Gorilla Tours now for 13 years and have done at least that many tours with them as well. I guess the fact that I have used them so many times says it all, I think they are great. The owner has worked with me every time to create the experience I want as I have travel with different friends each time.
The driver I use has now become my good friend, as has the owner!!
You will have a wonderful time, be with an experienced driver and see every thing you came to see, it will be the best trip of your life!!
