Tour description

During this tour, the guide will generally focus on our community's way of life and culture. The sceneries and the evolution of the slum areas and most importantly the challenges.
I will be meeting my clients at prestige plaza along Ngong road.
The tour starts immediately after meeting up as we go through the slum.
We will also visit some of the historic areas during the tour eg the oldest railway line built between 1901-1902 by the Indians during the pre colonial period. Walkers will also have an option of trying some local delicious dishes but at a cost.
We will also have some photo sessions throughout the tour
