Samuel was a great tour guide. I learned a lot about Nairobi and its history, and he had many interesting facts about the sites we visited. I loved the place he took us for lunch - we all ate great Kenyan food! It was a lovely time and I would recommend it to those staying in Nairobi for a quick trip or those who are trying to learn the city.

Guide had a lot of local knowledge

The tour was good once the guide arrived. But the guide did not turn up on time and had to be chased up many times and arrived 2 hours late - 11am for the tour that should have started at 9am Tour had to be cut short as I needed to be back at the airport for my next flight

Amazing experience

My mom and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the city center. Phillip was a great tour guide and we found him to be super informative and knowledgeable. Our favorite part was the guided tour of the Murumbi exhibit in the National Archives. It was amazing to see that much African art and history in one place.
