Obed is the Man! Fantastic Guide
Nov 2021 • Solo
As a first timer, or even 3rd timer I would go to Obed as a guide. He gave a thorough history of Nairobi and took me around Central. He has insane encyclopedic knowledge. You got to get to the top of KICC with him. It’s a must. Most of all he is a really cool dude. You will enjoy your time with him

Dennis and Kenya Railways
We had a great tour with Dennis. We went to the railway museum and it is a hidden gem. The Kenya Railways guides were great and really know their stuff. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in history, technology and Kenya.

Obed is an excellent tour guide. I was curious about what Nairobi has to offer so I booked this tour and thus far the best thing I've done on this trip. I loved the historical walk. His knowledge about the city is amazing and his love for his city makes you want to explore more.
