Have been here before but wanted to show my girlfriend around, Special mentioned to Jessy who took us around and gave us much information and was very friendly, i must mention he is a good photographer too (let the management recognize his good work) he has a bright future in his career. I was so impressed that I brought my cousin a day later to have the same experience.

Will recommend to people who wish to visit.

Thank you for that amazing experience.

Fort Jesus is a must visit site while in Mombasa since it's famous for it's very rich Portuguese and Arabian history from the 16th Century. It's important to have a good guide who will take you through the Fort educating you on the richness of the history and guiding you through the confusing narrow streets of old Mombasa town. Through LBE tours, I got to enjoy the history class without getting lost and getting stranded, through the help of their tour guides. I highly recommend LBE tours for any of your travel necessities.

Mombasa always puts a smile on my face. Fort Jesus, old town, lighthouse, and the many outside eating joints. Everyone wants to help, welcoming and happy residents.

Mombasa is known for beaches, resorts and nightlife, but there can always be room for history. Why not take a few hours and visit the famous historical fort situation on the coast. Fort Jesus is worth a visit. Coating 12 USD to enter, you can take beautiful pictures and learn some history about Mombasa. Do you need a guide? I chose to explore it on my own.There are many information boards to assist your understanding. But getting a local guide from outside will give you a better understanding of the place. Make sure you dont pay more than 5 dollars, negotiating a fair price will help you get a good deal or like I said you can explore it without needing guide. Enjoy the history
