A Wonderful Full Day of Wonder
Tour guide Francis was phenomenal. After being picked up, we first stopped at the Giraffe Center. Francis insured my fellow traveler and I got to have personal time with the beautiful giraffes on the raised deck before the other tourists arrived. I even got a giraffe kiss! We quickly moved on to the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage which is personally special since I'm a "foster parent" to two of the baby elephants. Francis insured we stood in a good viewing spot when the elephants came out for their feeding. After a brief but delicious lunch, Francis then took us to a Kazuri bead factory where we saw first hand how the beautiful jewelry beads are made and how they benefit the women who make them. Finally, we made it to the. Bomas, the cultural homesteads of the many tribes represented in Kenya, to include a fun and fascinating performance by dancers and singers. I was even pulled into final performance to participate. Truly a great first full day spent in Nairobi, doing a little bit of everything, including shopping at a nearby gift shop.

Great and different experience
I had a great time and found my guide Mrembe to be very professional. This tour opened my eyes to a different part of Nairobi and allowed me to see and explore areas I wouldn’t have felt comfortable to visit on my own.

I never felt pressured or unsafe during the tour and ending with some local cuisine was a great. All the guides were very open and willing to answer and questions you had about anything.

It was definitely an eye opening experience and highlighted some obvious differences between what I take for granted in my own country.

5/5. Highly recommend this trip. Asante sana. 🤙🏼

Amazing one day experience in Nairobi
Myself and a friend only had one day in Nairobi before our tour started. We wanted to see the highlights of what Nairobi had to offer and this was the perfect package fitted into one day. Our driver picked us up from our hotel early to ensure you get prime positions for all your stops with the animal encounters. Our guide even acted as a paparazzi for us, taking photos at any opportunity. The animals encounters were amazing- once in a lifetime opportunities, and the bead factory was a incredible opportunity to learn how females have been trained and given employment through these factories. We finished off our busy day with Bomas cultural village and dance performance- a high energy vibrant show showing us the insight into African culture. Our guide was more than accommodating, helping us at any opportunity and had a wealth of knowledge to share with us. A fantastic day, well worth the money!

A Day Full of Wonders
It was my first day in Kenya. The close encounter with the giraffes and the visit to the elephant orphenage were mind blowing. Steven started the day with me picking me up in the hotel and driving to the Giraffe Center before the crowd arrived. He was also kind enough to take pictures and lead me to the best spot to see the baby elephants. Patrick, a collegue of his, a very nice, easy going, good hearted man took over for the second half of the day. They both were knowledgeable and went out of their way to please all of us tourists in the van. I also enjoyed the tribal dance performance and the tour at the Bomas.
I was happy to be there with those great guides.

Excellent All-day Tour of Nairobi
This tour was a great glimpse into Nairobi culture. I enjoyed feeding the giraffes, watching others feed the elephants, and the dancing performances. I also liked visiting the bead-making facility, as well as the Lovebirds Community Gift Shop, where I bought masks. The dinner was great - I had never had rabbit before. Our guide, Steven, made the day memorable. He ensured that we experienced prime viewing at the elephant feeding and dance performance. I'm glad that we booked this tour - it was my best day in Kenya.

Great way to learn about tea in Kenya - and eat great food!
I really enjoyed this tour of the Kiambethu Tea Farm. The owner led the tour of the grounds and she was a guide. We also got to tour the surrounding forest and learn about the indigenous plants. My favorite part was definitely the tea and food, though! Both come from the farm and they are delicious. Also, the driver who picked me up from the hotel (Albert) was really nice and it was fun talking with him during the hour-long trip each way. He was also very knowledgeable about the city.

Great Day Trip, Wonderful Guide
It’s a must even if you went to the Safari. Would highlight Francis our tour guide that went way and beyond to make our visits just perfect. He knew the best timing, info, spots to be and was extremely nice, funny and reliable. Big ten for him.

Only downside, and not Francis fault, was lunch st the Bush Garden Restaurante for lunch. Bad food even worst service. Take this restaurant out of the recommended ones !!

Wonderful tour and Guide!!

Beautiful area
Our driver was Albert. Good conversation on the way to the farm. The tea farm is breathtaking. Enjoyed all parts of the day. I love tea but they even accommodate non tea drinkers. Fiona, the owner, is a very welcoming host. Julius gave an awesome tour of the forest. The Buffett lunch was wonderful with great staff to meet your needs.

wonderful 6 hour trip to escape from cloudy Nairobi
My driver Fred was very kind and helpful, we had a nice talk during the one hour drive to get there. The place is very quiet and charming, and the locally grown food is quite fresh and tasty. Beautiful lanscape, interesting inputs about tea farming and natural medecines one can find in the forest nearby.

Off the beaten track
This was an opportunity to walk the streets of Nairobi that we would never see. It was an opportunity to hang out with ex street kids, eat the local food and to hear their stories.

All three showed the two of us around. We felt safe and well looked after on the walking tour.

Highly recommend.

Deceptive business practices; I don't recommend.
I booked this tour though this company, and it turned out to be a very disappointing experience. The "guide" arrived at the hotel on time to pick me up for the Kibera Slum Tour. When we arrived at Kibera, I was handed over to a person who did the actual tour, and my "guide" was nowhere to be seen again until the tour ended.

We then went to lunch where my guide again left me to dine alone. I had to look for him after dinner. He then said he wanted to stop for "tea" where we went to a place where tourists could purchase items. DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING AT THIS SHOP (Golden Eagle Art Gallery) AS THEY ARE SEVERELY OVERPRICED! I purchased a painting there after negotiating a price, and the next day saw a painting at a different shop for 1/3 of the price I negotiated, and saw the same painting in Uganda for 1/8 the price. Do not let them con you with the "first customer of the day" or "you won't find this anywhere else". I feel like my tour guide was in cahoots with this shop and gets huge kickbacks! Lesson learned.

We visited a bead shop, which wasn't on the tour, but was still interesting. Again the driver left me alone. We then went to the Bomas of Kenya which was two hours of different styles of dancing and drumming. Again, the guide left me alone. After I got back to my hotel room I read the description again and realized that I missed an entire part of the Bomas tour, which was the village to see how the different tribes lived.

I'm not sure how it works, but if your receipt shows that your tour is through GracePatt Eco Tours, get a refund before it's too late, and book with another company, even if you have to book separate tours.
