Need some advice - Book a tour in advance or book on arrival

We are arriving in September for 11 days. Not sure if we should book the tour in advance or spend a day explorinfg the town then book the tour? Please share your experience.

What are the criteria to select the tour operator?

We prebooked a safari with DM Tours . We travelled early July 07.

We paid a 10% deposit (via visa) and did not have to pay the rest until then END of our safari.

Would defo recommend DMTours as they also use Land Rovers and not minibuses. There were only four of us on our safari and we passed some minibuses with 8 people in!!!

Hello,

I would definately book a tour in advance, mainly because unless you know EXACTLY how much something is worth you are in danger of being completely ripped off!! Nairobi is quite an intimidating city if you have never been anywhere like this before!
