“Well designed tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Difficult seeing this area of Nairobi but James, the tour guide, made sure that each of us had our own individual guide who was a leader in the community and knew all the ins and outs of the area.
We visited several schools...all different... A woman's collective..saw the sanitary system which is so needed, met local people and walked around visiting different venues.

I recommend James as your guide as he really does take care of his clients and truly knows the landscape. We travelled for 12 days over Kenya and tanzania with a tour designed by James which was amazing. This short excursion was an extra bonus.

“kibera slums”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

a vey humbling and thought provoking experience. It was good to take flour/sugar/bread as gifts for the orphanage and school. My only bugbare was it was a lot of money and I would have liked to have seen at least 30% of the money paid to be physically given to the funds needed for the projects-i saw no evidence and indeed even our guides from the slums do not appear to be paid by James to guide us. I am sure James does help financially but evidence is always good.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

This was a really humbling experience. I felt very safe and welcomed the entire time, despite the level of chaos (i.e. people everywhere).
