The tour company helped take an existing tour and adapt it to our needs. They were helpful, responded quickly to our questions and worked to make our tour worry free. The guide was knowledgeable and helped us have a great trip.

Caring, Generous, very hospitable with affordable rates and easy communication.
On booking they give you a clear breakdown of what to expect, all costs right from the cost of food, drinks & any in betweens. They're expertise in handling client bookings is exceptional!
They are very customer centered.
Their rates are unbeatable & unbelievable for the kind of service they offer. The food is well thought out, the staff are quick to serve you. The tents are very clean, towels beds are comfortable. Environment is very good. We had a wonderful time as a family of 6. I highly recommend them.

Fantastic experience! Value, safety, knowledge, kindness, experience, organization, all tops!
My wife and I booked a 13-day tour (offered by GT's sister agency Habari), and worked mainly with Annette in the Kampala office. Annette was very helpful, professional, providing complete and very informative answers to our questions (what to expect, what to bring, money, health, visas, etc). (This was our first trip to Africa - no clue. We have had many trips to SE Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Middle East.)
We joined a group, made up of 3 single women, and two other family women members. The group dynamics do influence the trip and we had a fun group!
In our trip, we visited 5 national parks - our favorite was Murchison Falls, though all have a special flavor. Murchison had savannah, Nile River, lots of animals (elephants, buffalo, hippos, birds, lions, giraffe, etc) it does take a full day to get there from Entebbe, but you do have a stop over to see rhinos at reserve - amazing! Chimp tracking was a blast, they're so personable! The shoebill bird in Lake Mburo, a treat.
Our driver/guide was Isma, someone who we all grew to admire and really appreciate - conservationist, teacher, guide, all around great human being. He kept us informed, on schedule, safe, fed, and bio-braked. What's more, he inspired us.
We went at start of rainy season, which means fewer people but more risk of rainy days. It did not get in our way except for one day. There's no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing....
Lodges were our style - well located, comfortable, clean, very welcoming staff, with a bar, and not overbearingly luxurious or stuffy, great value. We reminisce about hearing the hippos in the evening, colobus monkeys just outside our door, the sunsets.
I would love to bring my adult kids and my parents. The 13 days does require some stamina for long vehicle drives, but what you see along the way is all new, sometimes funny, exciting. It always felt safe, was always full of wonder, excellent value, worthy of repeating and expanding. Gorilla Tours has my vote for a great tour company with excellent staff!
