The driver/guide Santa was a really nice guy. We generally had a lot of fun while driving to the venue. The village is pretty interesting and you can go there easily after other activities in the morning for example. The village is quite entertaining and big. There are different types of homesteads by different communities and quite a lot to see. The dance show itself was a bit strange. Nice dresses and dances and empty hall with few other tourists. I felt a bit confused. You better to come there on weekends when locals come there as well. I've been told that they cheer dancers, sing and even dance with them. But generally it was ok experience, especially if you haven't seen anything like that before.

Simba was my guide. He did an excellent job. I am a solo traveler and I was the only person on this tour. We would have been quite early to the Bomas since it was on a weekend so he suggested that he could take me to the Kazuri Beads. I was so excited! I wanted to see the beads but didn't think we would have time. He brought me, arranged for someone to show me around and waited for me while I shopped. Then we proceeded to the Bomas. He is quite knowledgeable about the tribes and walked with me through the different tribe Bomas. Then we sat and watched the dancers and drummers. It was fantastic. I highly recommend this activity and give Simba five stars for being so accommodating and nice.

My guide Paul was great! Turns out the Bomas is closed for the next month or so and the tour company was not aware until we arrived there. Paul was quick on his feet and turned it into a city tour. I really appreciated how he went out of his way to make sure I still got my money’s worth despite to unexpected change. I would definitely work with this company again. Communication was timely and efficient. Highly recommend!
