Wonderful trip to the peninsula of Kampala. The somewhat rocky/muddy roads are easily accessible, but also have some nice downhill fun! Francis, our guide was very nice and took the levels of the whole group into account. On the trip you make a soda and a rolex stop. Oh and

Haha, great review! In Uganda you never know how the weather will be, so always bring sunscreen and a raincoat (although the rain is nice and warm)

Excellent 1/2 day from Kampala avoiding spending hours on the roads. Island is beautiful & cycling relatively easy if some experience. James showed real affection for the area & people guiding us through the villages & forest. Got to try Rolex & many high 5’s from the village

Bikes in excellent condition. Guide was very friendly. I really recommend this option. It was so interesting to go through the villages and catch a glimpse of daily life. We stopped to try some local street food. An excellent activity.

We had a good time but there was a bit of a disconnect between expectations and reality. This wasn’t for beginners...I was expecting dirt roads but not having to navigate tiny foot paths barreling down hills my first time. It was stressful. There were no snacks and no options

Dear Jessica, First of all our apologies for not being able to give you the best bike experience we are aiming for. It's our goal to make sure you will have a fantastic ride and really enjoy the environment and all the beauty that Uganda has to offer. We clearly didn't succeed in doing that. I have discussed with the guide who was cycling with you and he told me he had tried his best to avoid steep climbs and challenging single tracks. He acknowledged that he should have shortened the trip in order to fit it to your exact needs. However he felt that he was afraid of letting the other participants down if he would do that. I have discussed this issue with him to make sure he will take the right decision next time. We understand that this doesn't help you in any way and has spoilt your first impression of Uganda per bicycle. We would love to show you that we do offer the best biking experience in Uganda which is suitable for any type of cyclist. Please let me know if you are around so we can set up a new trip for you. Thanks for being honest to us. it helps to improve our services.
