We enjoyed sightseeing with Amos. As a professional tour guide, he took us to very interesting places. I expressed my desire to get to know the architecture and gastronomy better, so he changed the sightseeing plan of Nairobi according to our preferences. Amos is very pleasant company, intelligent and full of knowledge about his city. We had lunch together in an excellent restaurant, and before parting we drank coffee and ate cake in ArtCaffe. We got to know the contrasts of Nairobi in terms of history and architecture and everything culminated at the helipad of the Kenyatta Center, which offered a fascinating view of the city and all its neighbourhoods. A little curiosity - Amos is a big fan of the Croatian football team. As tourists from Croatia, we couldn't get a better guide! Thanks Amos!

We really enjoyed our walk with Amos. He did a great job showing us around and telling us about the history and culture of Kenya and Nairobi. The insights were really interesting and we felt safe walking with him through the crowded streets. He was friendly and also flexible, as we didn't have that much time and also got a snack in-between. But he adapted his tour and met our wishes about what we want to know more about.

An excellent tour! Amos was very knowledgable, and shared so much about Nairobi and Kenya. It was a well thought out route, culminating in the view from the helipad I would highly recommend this tour to others.

Amos war ein sehr angenehmer, freundlicher und zuvorkommender Guide. Er hat ein sehr breites Wissen über Kenia und Nairobi und hat uns in den ca. 2,5 Stunden viele Informationen sehr gut verständlich und anschaulich vermittelt. Wir haben viel über die Geschichte Nairobis gelernt und eine Zeitreise durch die Architektur unternommen. Unsere vielen Fragen hat Amos gerne beantwortet. Wir würden jederzeit wieder eine Führung bei ihm unternehmen.
