We did the two hour walking tour followed by a traditional lunch. It is a really inspiring project which educates and trains local women. The tour gives a good insight into the lives of the local people. The lunch was delicious. Highly recommended.

Unfortunately were not long enough in Kigali to do the walking tour, but we did manage to visit the centre and see the work done by the Women there. Incredibly industrious and I am now the proud owner of a beautiful Table Cloth.
