Burundi Visit: 2012-11
2013-02-12 - Paul Baker wrote, Myself and my partner were 2 independent travellers who wanted to spend a few days in Burundi on our trip that included a tour of Uganda and Rwanda in November 2012. There is not much information available on Burundi as a tourism destination and we were grateful for Augustin who helped arrange a 3 day tour of some of the main sights in and around Bujumbura. We stayed at the Hotel Club du Lac and enjoyed the refreshing pool, great food, hospitality, entertainment and the white beach sands overlooking Lake Tanganyika, with the sunset in the evenings behind the DRC bordering mountains which is a truly moving sight neither of us will ever forget. We saw hippos and crocs at close quarters in the Ruzizi NP and went to the Burundi Zoo, now under renovation and there is development towards opening a cultural centre in the very near future. In addition we saw the Burundi main university site and enjoyed views from the mountain tops of the capital and infamous lake. We enjoyed a trip to Gitega/Gishora to the drummers museum, saw the Catholic influence in the town and also the National Museum of Burundi. We visited the Livingstone/Stanley monument in Bujumbura Rurale. The road trip was very interesting through the mountainous thick bush at high altitude, really getting to see a quite untouched beautiful and largely undiscovered part of Africa. The people were extremely welcoming and friendly and I just wish we had more time to enjoy, discover and explore this up and coming future destination. I would recommend the country and indeed Augustine Tours, who is in many respects a pioneering tourist expert who\'s passion for his country, its people, history and future aspirations as a nation is truly infectious. Our needs were catered for at very short notice, but Augustin had prepared well and the whole trip was a seamless and well executed private tour. If you\'re thinking about going, just do it, you\'ll discover your inner intrepid side...! Paul Baker

Rwanda Visit: 2012-8
2013-02-12 - Anne Heltberg from Danmark wrote , In August 2012 Augustine Tours arranged a 12 days round trip for us ( 2 persons ) in Rwanda and Burundi . The trip was very well organized. The hotels were fine and the car was new and good. Augustine Tours also has a very fine network, which made it possible for us to improvise during the tour. The finest example of this being our visit to Gishora, where we saw and heard the magnificent drum players. This can be highly recommended. More http://augustinetours.com/index.php/testimonials
