“Great tour with a knowledgeable local guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Great end-2-end experience! Booked the trip online, got voucher/confirmation straight away. The guide was picking me up on time in the reception of my hotel (Kivi Milimani) and showed me around in central Nairobi. Very knowledgeable and approachable he was keen to answer all questions that I had. If you have a few hours to spare in Nairobi I highly recommend this tour (in particular if it is your first time in this bustling city).

“Great walking tour around the city with local guide.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Nairobi Urban Adventures offer a five-hour walking tour around the city. Lunch at a 'typical' Kenyan restaurant is included. A local guide accompanies visitors (this tour can run with just one participant) around the main sights and gives info along the way. This is a great way to get to know central Nairobi and provides an excellent opportunity to ask questions about the city itself and about Kenya and the Kenyans more generally. The guide, Joe, was friendly and flexible and tried really hard to answer our millions of queries about absolutely everything! Our group really enjoyed our walk with him. Highly recommended as a way to get to know the city.

“Karen Shopping Centre food and wine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I visit this place often while in Nairobi. This is formerly a white settlement area and has very serene hotels and restaurants.
I like the masai market outside the crossroads shopping mall. They have very nice traditional things but be keen to burgain as well.

The newly refurbished Dormans coffee shop is a great place to have your Kenyan coffee. Talisman Restaurant and Que Pasa are just near there to enjoy a meal.
Karen is also home to many boutique hotels like House of Waine, Marchushla and the unspoilt Kisima House.
I would recommend swim at Kisima house or house of waine to give you that natural feeling of home away from home!

“Giraffe Centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Nice outing. My wife and son totally loved it. Close contact to the animals was quite thrilled. Even more thrilled to know that the saliva of a giraffe was antiseptic in nature.
Met new and hospitable friends. Highly recommended.
