Eraste is a really nice guy who does all he can to give one a memorable trip.
5/5

I very much enjoyed my visit to see the Red Monkeys at Musanze even if there were so many people at the same venue going off to see the Gorillas.
The Diane Fossey centre is well worth the time for a visit.
The Genocide museum in Kigali although it is harrowing it should not be missed.
The highlight of my whole trip was going into the Congo to see the Gorillas, for me it was a life time memory.
The boat trip on the slow boat to Goma in the Congo was a really enjoyable day too, not much to see in the town except the wooden bicycles.
Burundi was a good experience too as not many make the effort to visit as such many locals are please to meet and chat.

8-day game safari
5/5

I did an 8-day game safari tour with Empirical Tour and Travel across the amazing land of Rwanda. As a white female solo traveller I was very pleased with the way this travel agency handled all the little details of my travel. Accommodations were nice and transportations between destinations were smooth. Eraste and Joseph made me feel safe and comfortable the whole journey. With their travel plan I was able to experience Rwanda as a local, which added priceless value for this trip!

Knowledgeable, kind and creative
5/5

We did a 4 day birding tour with Empirical Tour across northern Rwanda and along the coast of Lake Kivu. Eraste and his team have a deep knowledge of locally owned hotels and birding spots many of which are certainly off the regular tourist routes. Joseph, our guide was phenomenal. He has an eye for birds, their sounds and their behavior. It was our second tour in Rwanda and we are experienced birders but everywhere we went there was something new and often in unexpected places, many of the hotels and restaurant gardens were excellent bird-spotting locations in themselves. This is local knowledge that added real value to the trip. One of the most memorable experiences was the ability to expand birding hikes through wetlands into serious frog-spotting safaris. You've just got to know where to look and the Empirical team certainly does.
