An essential part of anyone’s Nairobi itinerary. Extremely hospitable and friendly group of guys eager to tell their story, and to show you the more real and raw parts of Nairobi. A real eye opener in not only seeing how people live, but meeting them too as you walk through the true beating heart of this city. I enjoyed this very much. Thank you to Typhoon who showed me around. There was never a dull moment and I truly feel this is an important experience to have in life. Where else do they do tours like this?

This was an absolutely incredible day. The guide I had was named Quick and he was amazing. He took his time telling me his entire story and was incredibly kind and patient with me the entire day showing me around. He also took me to a local restaurant for some food and beer and conversation. I felt safe the entire time on this tour and it was so much fun. I can’t recommend it enough. I would recommend requesting Quick as your guide and go for it. So fun.

リアルなナイロビを知れました。彼らの生い立ちや実際に起きたことを話しながら、ダウンタウンやスラム街を案内してくれました。常に何人かが我々を囲んでくれたので心配なく回れました。 最後にローカルレストランでランチもできて、貴重な体験ができました! It was amazing experience with the guides. I felt all the time safe because some guides always watched us. Qui Qui told his story in the city, so we learned real Nairobi. Lastly, the local lunch was delicious. Thank you all!!!
