          Great experience for food lovers
          Learning how to cook Zambian food was an interesting challenge especially the Nshima which requires a flexible wrist 😅 Overall a great experience

          Zambian food
          Very pleasant experience making a really Zambian meal in a Zambian home. Made nshima with okra and rape and beef. Very tasty meal finishing with 2 types of mango and baobab fruit. Clare showed us what to do with great kindness and enthousiasm. Worth wile

          A great day in Lusaka
          Clare helped me get oriented in Lusaka. We had a great day! She focused on my interests and made the day fun and interesting. Clare is friendly and knowledgeable. I got so much more out of the places we went because Clare could summarize and answer my questions.

          Delicious food and a Great learning experience.
          It was a fully immersive experience. Clare taught us how to cook a famous Zambian staple Nshima (a maize meal porridge) accompanied with a wide assortment of vegetables like rape, okra and fisashi and a delicious steak.As first timers, cooking the nshima was a bit difficult but still a fun experience! I recommend this tour all foodies like Stacey and I.

        A really great experience! Kudos to our tour guide Miss Claire who was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The Lusaka National Museum was wonderful and started with a great gallery of contemporary Zambian art, sculptures and photography.

        My favorite part was the history of Zambia including so much that I didn’t know about the migration of tribes and languages as well as a very informative exhibit of the Slave trade in Southern Africa and how this morphed into Colonialism and then eventual Zambian independence. Truly fascinating.

        A great stop at the Freedom statue and then on to a fun shopping and haggling experience at the Kabwata Cutural Village!

        Wrapped up with a great traditional Zambian meal.

        Overall a very satisfying tour and only took four hours including transport and lunch. Highly recommend. Great job Claire!🤠

        I had a great tour with Clare, she was happy, bubbly and very knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the Museum and cultural village. It was great to experience the local transport and finishing with Zambian Street Food was the bomb, I highly recommend this tour.

        I had a great time and this tour helped me to learn a little more about Lusaka! Clare picked me up at my hotel with her driver. It was like a "private tour". She was very friendly and kind. She took me to the museum and she was very knowledgeable. Then we went to a village (take some cash with you, in case you want to buy some handcrafts), and at the end she took me to a market where she even introduced me to her grandmother. Finally she dropped me off at the hotel. I highly recommend her.

        PS. She even took pictures for me! She was a full package:)

        My tour guide Ms.Clare really shines a light on what a rich city Lusaka is. The tour single handedly ties together culture,history and local cuisine so perfectly. Having limited time in Lusaka it was the perfect way to spend my layover.

        Do not waste your money booking this tour. I chose the 9:00 tour and was picked up at 9:48 and home by 12:00. I was not given the option to select a package when purchasing my ticket - I was under the impression that I would be receiving the whole tour. I have included my ticket below outlining what I paid for, whereas I was only taken to the first two stops. I found this out in the middle of the first stop - I raised that I was unhappy about this and I was asked for more money to go to the other stops. Do not get tricked into booking this tour.

        I apologized for the misconception that occurred and as such has been corrected. Sad that you had a bad experience but it will not happen again. Nevertheless thank you for your honest review as it makes for a much better experience for others in the future.

        Clare is very professional. She was on time at our meet up point and we went to the Museum and theCultural Centre. I learnt a lot and was able to ask Clare tons of questions about life in Zambia today. We then went to a market for some souvenirs and then we had lunch, a traditional Zambian meal which was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed my time.

        Had a great time with Clare! The museum would have been boring without her knowledge. I learnt a lot about Zambia, in the time I was there, thanks to Clare. The lunch was delicious and easily catered to me being vegetarian. Overall, I found the morning interesting and Clare a friendly and knowledgeable guide.

        Do not waste your time booking with this tour company. What they advertise is FALSE and they will trick you and scam you of your money. This provider should not even be on trip advisor due to their unprofessionalism.

        Considering you have never booked any of our tours, it is a little bias for you to write a review of something you haven't personally experienced. But regardless, thank you for the constructive criticism and we will make sure to make it better for future clients.

        Clare Malaya, my tour guide was friendly and informative. The spots we visited suited my tastes perfectly.
        Clare also assisted me in finding a tailor and introduced me to traditional Zambian cuisine. Well worth the money 👍🏽
