At Walter’s Tours Ltd, we pride ourselves on being original, innovative and creative, especially when it comes to new developments in the tourism industry. In this way, we are one of the few tour companies to offer both city tours around home base of Kampala plus classic safari routes through all of East Africa. Even better, we are always on the hunt for new and better, so we’re not afraid to venture off the beaten track!
Our Top 5 Goals:
1. Excellent Service
We’re funny. We’re trained. We’re responsible. We’re connected. After 6 years, we know what we are doing and Walter himself still makes sure every itinerary is as accurate as we can make it. We have established and active relationships with many of the top hotels and lodges around the country, and we are able to secure bookings for accommodation, Gorilla passes, etc. in advance and sometimes at a reduced rate than you going it alone. We speak English, Swahili and Luganda. In addition, our office is open 6 days a week and we can be reached by phone, email or Facebook message.
2. Competitive Prices
Walter’s Tours Ltd. pioneered travel in Uganda. In 6 years we have become known for our excellent service at affordable prices. Today, we offer a range of tours to suit all budgets, group sizes, trip durations and desired experiences.
Guides aren’t created just by hanging a sign outside your door. This takes years learning and watching. The industry is very competitive and every single tour is an opportunity for us to share and learn. We hire professionals and train potential. We invest a lot of energy, time, and money in to our operations. Walter personally trains every single guide and conducts annual performance reviews. Do not be fooled by amateurs.
4. Quality Vehicles
Whether motorbikes or 4×4, we focus on making sure our fleet is maintained, clean, and road ready. We also make sure our drivers can act as mechanics on the road. As everyone knows, safari trips are long and comfort is of the most importance! Our fleet is comprised of safari vans, 4WD Land Cruisers and RAV4 plus a variety of motorbikes (local models for city tours, adventure BMW, Honda BAJA’s, etc.).
5. Giving Back + Sustainable Tourism
Walter’s Tours has not only created local jobs (currently 25+ positions) but has also provided travelers to give back in sustainable and impactful ways. (No Saviour Barbie’s here!) You can read more about this here.
