A fantastic tour, accompanied by the driver Denis, helpful and professional without ever being intrusive. the tented camp provided the essentials for bed and shower; good food. I would also like to underline the fact that in Nairobi the airline lost our luggage, but through the safari staff, always in contact with the airport, we were able to receive them at a forwarded safari. Thank you so much for the help you received! Super!

Ben Rich is a very good guide. Open, interested and talkative. The excursion was very informative and entertaining. The museum visits (Nairobi National Museum and Railway Museum) are OK, but the explanations are very detailed. Visiting the market requires a lot of stamina, because everyone wants to sell something (“only look, give two minutes for my shop”). A highlight was the viewing platform on the old congress building. The trip was well worth it!

Ben and his driver, Eric, went out of their way to show us the highlights of Nairobi. The museum and snake park were very interesting. Our guide in the snake park provided a "hands on" experience. The view from the roof of the conference center was great. We did the tour on a Sunday afternoon, so most of the market stalls were closed.

Nice, convenient and timely. Titus was an excellent guide. The giraffes and baby elephants were awesome to see up close

The city tour was very interesting and the guide, Ben, really nice!
