A Kibera tour should be mandatory for all tourists visiting Kenya. It is such an essential reality check for everyone who never thought twice about having electricity, running water, sanitation, trash removal, and other basic services. The Women's Power Center, Victorious Group, Kibera Widowed Mothers and other groups have all managed to find a way to make beautiful crafts out of sheer poverty. Take lots of extra cash as these items are beautiful and make priceless keepsakes.
We took a Kibera tour with another guide in October 2013 and then with EKT in January 2014. EKT hands down had the better service. We knew where we wanted to go and some craftsmen that we wanted to locate. Our guide, Alistair, did a great job taking us everywhere we wanted to go, and to a few new spots. We took the local bus when we left Kibera and were glad for his guidance on the process (it is a bit confusing).
