My friend and I are going on a 6 day trek with Gorilla and wildlife Safaris tour operator is Ivan. Has anyone use this company before? And if so what was your experience? We will be trekking once in Rwanda and once in Uganda as well as doing a chimpanzee trek. Does anyone have any suggestions for us?

never heared Ivan. As a traveller's written before : go to AUTO, there is a list of trustable tour operators. The Association of Uganda Tour Operators (AUTO) , you can find even ratings !
