Kriss B wrote a review Jun 2019
Cape Town Central, South Africa226 contributions101 helpful votes
Much more than I expected -- very informative, and historic details that you will not get anywhere else. Definitely not "white washed" history -- the audio guide provides gripping, detailed stories of Uganda's history from the beginning of recorded stories in the mid-1800s. Only 4 stops, but strategically placed, allowing for information and presentations while driving between sites. A must-do to understand Uganda and it's remarkable history. Alex is a very safe driver (and all-around nice guy!), and Desire was all one could hope for in a tour guide (personable, knowledgeable, friendly, and knows how to get conversations started....lovely young lady with a great future!)

Kampala, Uganda1 contribution
This is an absolutely fantastic tour that I would highly recommend if you want an accurate and in depth account of Uganda's history! The information is extremely well researched and presented. The tour guide and driver were professional and accommodating. Our guide at the Palace was equally impressive. You can tell that a great deal of thought and effort has been put into this tour with the transportation and training of the guides. It is a feather in Kampala's cap to have such a great company representing its tourism - well done Changing Horizons!

This was an really excellent tour with a superb guide and brilliant driver. It gave us a terrific insight to the history of the Buganda tribe and a short summary of Uganda's history. The audio sections as we drove between landmarks worked really well. Then Desire gave us more background at each sight. The landmarks visited were both inspirational and very moving. I'd highly recommend it and Changing Horizons looked after us very well, providing water and a snack. Fabulous.

I just did the Historic Jinja Tour. What a great tour. I had previously done the Martyrs and Kings tour. I love history and Diana does such a marvelous job of research and narration that it makes the tours so worthwhile. Most tour guides will give you the spiel in "real time" - but they sound like robots after a while. Diana narrates the tour, with an incredible amount of history, and lets you listen to it on a headset between stops, while you ride in a very comfortable air-conditioned van. Changing Horizons takes care of ALL the little details, snacks, water, rest stops, tour narration, tickets, lunch. All you need to do is show up and enjoy! On our Jinja trip, she had planned a lunch at the Jinja Sailing Club, which backed out at the last minute for another booking. She was able to get us an even better lunch at the Gately on Nile. Way better venue! One thing to remember, if you are not a Uganda resident: be flexible. This is Uganda - traffic happens, the Ministry of Tourism is not totally reliable, things happen. But Diana is very flexible and if you did not already know about it, you might not even notice! And dress appropriately: good walking shoes are a must. We were able to climb a couple of steep places, because we were wearing good walking shoes. Highly, highly recommend! Money very well spent.
