After watching my favorite YouTuber blogger mention immersion tours I had to check out their website to learn I could get a visit from a local chef. While on a business trip it so happened my birthday was coming up and what a grand opportunity to not only learn to prepare Ugandan dishes but also to share a birthday with new found friends. Immersion tours really made my birthday the best ever. From shopping for food in the local markets with the chef to buying my birthday cake immersion tours really put together a memmoriable experience. I highly recommend contacting Arthur and his team. Just do it! Thank you Arthur.

After bringing to a market, Daisy and her family welcomed us in their home. There we cooked a great Ugandan meal together. We had a great time and overall it was a very nice experience!

Met at my Guesthouse by my guide Arthur on time and without issue. We then went to a local market and purchased all the ingredients we needed for the meal. After this we went via boda(125cc motorcycle) to his home. Then we chatted about our interests and cultures whilst his mother Anne and sister Vanessa prepared the many dishes. They talked us through what the process was and how it will taste.
Now was time for the sit down meal...the food was delicious and there was plenty to go around. I enjoyed the hospitality and friendly nature of Arthur and his family and was pleased with my tour. My only criticism was that I would have liked to have helped in the preparation as well as the gathering of the food stuffs...other than that I was more than grateful!
