I moved to Nairobi a couple months ago and had driven by the UN campus a couple of time and was curious as to what actually happened there. I went to their website and was pleasantly surprised that they offered tours.
I booked the tour via email as directed through the website. The correspondence in the email was professional, friendly and timely. I felt confident going into my tour that it was going to be a good experience.
I arrived for my tour a bit late and the security line was a bit long because they were hosting an event that particular day. Checking in with security was easy, they had my name on a list.
Our tour guide was Winnie, she was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was just myself and one other person on the tour, so we had plenty of time to ask questions and take pictures. I walked away with a better understanding of the UN's mission and different departments. The tour took about 2 hours and is well worth the 1,500 shillings I paid as an American.
