“Tonny was friendly and professional. From the first moment we made contact he treated me like a friend, helped me with accommodation and transport. So I was already impressed even before I arrived in Burundi. I felt totally safe with him. I met him again when 2 days later I decided to visit Rwanda, which is Tonny’s home place, it was amazing. It was like Singapore of Africa. I would definitely recommend him for anyone coming to East Africa” –  Paul, USA.
