    Authentic and Heartwarming Cultural Encounter
    My visit to the Masai village was an experience I'll cherish forever. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted with the warmest of welcomes. The vibrant colors of the Masai shukas and the enchanting rhythms of their traditional dances immediately enveloped me in the richness of their culture. The tour was well-organized and insightful, offering a rare glimpse into the daily lives of the Masai people. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, explaining the significance of the Masai's customs and rituals with great passion and respect. The visit was not only educational but also very personal, as the villagers shared stories of their heritage and lifestyle.

    Best Walking Tour Ever with Moses
    Moses our tour guide was very knowledgeable not only on the historical past and parts of Kenya but the cultural evolution of Kenyans as well. If you like walking well.... You will walk a moderate distance. Comfortable shoes and water is a must. Nonetheless when you book your tour ask for Moses! He will deliver you to the promise land😁

    Explore Nairobi After Pick-up!
    I dived right into exploring Kenya and Mwose was the perfect guide. He was able to show me around the city in half a day showcasing the rich history and culture of the city. Perfect if you have a few hours to kill before check-in.

    Eye opening Experience at the coffee farm
    The tour was very well organised. It was eye opening meeting the people behind this million dollar industry. We requested pickup and drop off services from our hotel, and the driver Paul was a delight. Thank you Obed for curating such an interesting experience.

Most importantly, I would like to thank my guide for today who goes by the name Mwose. He is well- versed about the Masai culture. In addition, he was understanding, patient, enthusiastic, friendly , and punctual. .

    Great activity off the beaten path
    This was definitely a highlight of my Kenya voyage. Moses was an extremely knowledgeable guide who took extra care to make sure all questions were answered and that we understood everything that was happening. Highly recommend the Friday market tour. The people we met and the rare experiences we had were irreplaceable. Great activity for the brave at heart wishing to step outside of typical tourist traps.

    The best experience I’ve ever experienced
    Definitely this is the best experience in my life. I could see the lifestyle of masai tribe. It’s interesting. They are so kind and friendly. I experienced a lot of things. Also the tour guide is very good person. He taught me a lot about things about Masai. Definitely I wanna go there again and I wanna take my family next time!!!! I’ll never forget that day. 人生の中で1番貴重な経験でした。 夢のマサイ族に会えて、マサイ族の生活を体験することができて本当に楽しかったし忘れられない思い出になりました。 必ずまた行きたいし、次は家族や友達を連れて来たいです。

I spent my afternoon with Moses. He was such a delight. I felt as if I were touring the city with an old friend. He is knowledgeable about Nairobi’s history, places to see, things to do, is well-rounded in many topics and is really down to earth. I felt completely safe and in good hands all day long. Our conversations were great. After touring the CBD center we went to The National Museum of Kenya and Snake Park just because he knew I wanted to go and he made it happen before it closed. I couldn’t have expected or asked for a better time seeing and learning about Nairobi for the first time. FYI, both the city and the people are lovely!

Very informative city tour. We walked through the streets of Nairobi as Obed shared key information on the city’s history from past to present. He is highly knowledgeable and personable, I felt as though I was learning Kenyan history from a great friend. So much wisdom gained. I encouraged anyone visiting Kenya for the first time to do this tour. Absolutely worth it!

Also you can arrange for multiple tours together. For example, city tour and souvenir shopping

The city tour peaked my curioudity about Mombasa that I decided to book a day trip, going there by train & returning by flight

I’m a solo traveler, this was also a great way to learn some history & also utilize time

You never know how you may be inspired! ✨

Thanks Obed!

Obed was knowledgeable, considerate and informative. This tour allowed me to mingle with Kenyans as we went through the market and past other landmarks which signposted key events in the Kenyan timeline. Obed comfortably guided through the history outlining the contributions of notable Kenyans, other countries and ethnic groups along the way. It fascinates that so many British links have been maintained and is even more pleasing to see the statues of prominent Kenyans around Nairobi. A positive and optimistic way to end my break here.

Our guide Alex Kamau was excellent. Highly recommended before your safari tours. We visited a lot of places like museums, parks, bomas cultural presentation, masai market, kicc, and replicas of different villages. At the museums you will have a chance to hear the curations from different experts at that place. We also went for the snake exhibits. Some people were able to handle snakes and crocodile safely with the help of the animal keepers. It was so easy to book with Safari Port and they respond to your texts right away using WhatsApp . We booked the tour just the day before. It has exceeded our expectations and will recommend both the tour company and Alex. Prepare good walking shoes because you will walk alot. If you need to buy souvenirs Alex will haggle for you

This was an amazing tour. It was so welcoming! Obed is very homely and informative and understands his audience and whilst we were in Kenya, I learnt a lot about East Africa and the continent as a whole. You walk for 3hrs and it doesn’t even feel like it was 3hrs. He also experiences all the things you are experiencing as if it’s the first time like you. Would book him again and again…

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.

Obed our guide was a lovely friendly chap. We had a fantastic time walking the streets of Nairobi and learning about the history of Kenya. From the top of the tower we were able to see and learn about the many districts of Nairobi and Obed dropped us off at the Kenya History museum at the end of the tour which was well worth visiting. Would highly recommend this tour and Obed.
