Sadly you can't go inside the palace - the tour consists of a walk around the grounds, and in to Idi Amin's infamous 'torture chambers' which are as unsettling as you'd expect. The guide gave us a great insight in to the ups and downs of Ugandan history and politics since independence, and I learnt a lot. The tour cost 10,000Ush and lasted about 40 minutes. At the end of the tour the guides tried to sell us various artworks they had produced, which you can't blame them for, but they were asking for really inflated prices for things that you can find cheaper at the local craft markets so be warned. Worth a visit for a quick potted modern history of Uganda.
