I had an amazing day on our full day tour with our amiable guide Meshack. We started the day with a trip to the giraffe center where we learnt about giraffes and got to feed them. We then headed to the Sheldrick center where we got to see baby elephants, learn their stories, understand more about the trust and even touch them. The elephants were a joy, so friendly and playful. We than stopped at a gift store and then went to lunch at a really lovely restaurant Tamambo. From lunch we went to the Karen Blixen museum and then the Kanuri bead factory. Overall it was a fully immersive day filled with lots of fun activities. Our guide/driver Meshack was soo very hospitable and made the day that much better

Brilliant! I booked the night before and was on my way at 8am the next morning! And I couldnt have wished for a better guide...Stephen Mutuku. Stephen was in touch with me via Whats App the morning of the tour to confirm pick up, he then collected me in a well marked GracePatt van and was so much fun to chat with all day. He even offered to get those once in a life time/will treasure for ever photos of me and the giraffes and the elephants. And if youve seen the movie Out of Africa - the Karen Blixen Museum is a MUST! Just a brilliant day from start to finish. THANK YOU STEPHEN for making the day so, so special.

Stephen was our driver and guide and he did an excellent job telling us about the various attractions ahead of the visit. He went above and beyond what was expected by driving through Nairobi National Park to pick us up at 8 am at our lodge. He was punctual, informative, and very helpful. We visited the Karen Blixen Museum, the David Sheldrick Trust, Kazuri Bead Factory, and the Giraffe Center. He took us for lunch at Utamaduni Restaurant which was an excellent choice!
I would recommend Stephen highly for your tours if you are planning to visit Nairobi.

I ended up being the only one going that day. My guide was Stephen Mutuku. Let me try to tell you how much fun we had that day!!!! Absolutely fantastic. It was like my own personal tour. I can’t recommend this enough. It was exactly what I wanted to see and I didn’t have a bunch of days to do. To be honest this was absolutely perfect. I don’t feel like I needed more time at any place. It was just right. Once again I thank Stephen for everything!!! I now feel I have a friend in Kenya.

We spent 2 days in Nairobi and landed the first day at the airport after an hour delay. Alex was at the airport waiting, and immediately took off, being totally unobtrusive but simultaneously getting us to the sites at exactly the right times, and giving us the advantage of an experienced guide over all the other tourists. For example at the elephant sanctuary, you really have to have timing and knowledge to get the optimum experience and Alex delivered effortlessly. And his great personality made our 48h day (sleepless after the flight that landed at 7am) a great experience. And he knows the good restaurants.

Was picked up from my hotel by Francis, lovely driver/guide. We had to pick up 2 others at another hotel who weren't quite ready but we were a few minutes early. We were all doing the Giraffes/Elepants and Kazuri Beads but then I was going on to the Karen Blixen museum whilst the others were doing the Boma tour. As this was my last day and I was flying that night I checked on the times to be back to the hotel for my prebooked airport transfer. Francis got us to the Giraffes early and we were first in line, he took photos and made sure we were sorted before we had a bit of free time there. At the Elephants he took us to the front of a massive queue and when we went in he knew the best spot, which I think Gracepatt guides all seem to know. It was in the shade and in a prime spot. Then we went to the Kazuri Bead Factory, unfortunately it was a public holiday so the factory was not working but we had a tour round the outside and a lovely explanation, this was obviously out of Gracepatt's control. Off to a lovely restaurant for lunch, reasonable prices and excellent food. Finally he took the others to the Bomas as they had a timed show and then me to the Karen Blixen museum where he sorted my guide. At all times thoughout the day he was professional and helpful. Once I had finished he took me back to my hotel first as otherwise we would have been waiting about 45 minutes for the others. This was to ensure I was back in plenty of time for my transfer without feeling rushed. I was pleased with the day, impressed with Francis and was a great finish to my holiday.

Lets see how many superlatives I can use in this review. Feeling alone and lost in a strange country Grace put up with me txting her late in the evening asking stupid questions, then sent Patrick to get me the next day for the tour.
I was so jetlagged I couldn't think straight and Patrick and I laughed about it all the way to another hotel to pick up a second guest. We did make a stop at the bank for me and that's another ridiculously funny story. I really should have felt sorry for Patrick having to put up with me but he has such a lovely tolerant sunny nature.
The tour was comprehensive and Patrick gave us so much information about the places we were going to that when we got there we had heard all the information the people there gave us before.
We were taken to a lovely place for lunch that not only had excellent food but was very affordable. So much so I went back there again a week later.
The other person on the tour had heard about the Masai market and wanted to be dropped there. As it is a "wandering" market it was a lot further away from her hotel than she had realised and Patrick was concerned that by the time the market was over it would be dark and she may not be safe. They had peaked my interest in visiting so Patrick added it to the end of our tour and waited 2 hours while we browsed and shopped. At the end of the day we felt like 3 long time best friends.
I booked another tour a week later after my safari and was disappointed that it was a different but equally competent driver and not Patrick who had taken his son back to school.
Patrick you were my first friend in Kenya and I loved every minute of the experience you took me on. I had more fun than you'll ever know. I missed you terribly on the second tour and would have loved to have seen you again before I left. I will return to Kenya and will have no hesitation about calling you and Grace about other places to visit and thank you and Kata for the cuddles and patience when I cried with joy at DSWT. I hope I get to meet Grace next time too. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Had an amazing visit to the elephant orphanage and giraffe center! The animals are extraordinary, and it’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in the city with a short amount of leisure time. My guide, Paul, was prompt and knowledgeable about the sights and area - appreciated he got me close up at elephant orphanage. Would definitely recommend!!!

Spent a wonderful day in Nairobi - Giraffe Center and Elephant Orphanage were great. At lunch at the Blixen Garden are - excellent food and setting. Stephen was our guide - knew his way around and when to go to site. With the exception of the Elephant Orphanage that has just one time during the day to go, we avoided the crowds. We also spent time at the Kazuri Bead Factory and a wonderful shop - Love Birds Curio Shop in Karen.

We used Gracepratt for all of our transfers as well as an overnight to Lake Nakuru and Bogoria to see flamingos. They made this short time very enjoyable and would use them again.
