6/10 Good

But a terribly weak wi-fi that works very poorly
VIRUNGA HOMESTAY & CAMPSITES met me well, arranged in a large room, prepared a delicious and plentiful breakfast. Thanks! But a terribly weak wi-fi that works very poorly. He asked to organize a sightseeing tour of the Volcanoes National Park on a motobike, they said that it costs 5 thousand Rwandan francs. I agreed. A motorbiker arrived and took me and when they left the city he took 5 thousand francs from me and began to extort another 5 thousand francs. I refused to give an additional 5 thousand francs and the motorbiker without completing the tour returned to the city.
