Humphrey was great! Not only very knowledgeable of the history, but a great photographer for your memories and full of respect. I felt like I had a guardian in the city.

Humphrey is experienced guide. He told us about the history of Mombasa, show us around the city, we visited also spice market. All the time we felt very safe with him, he regularly checked if we are ok :) I would maybe welcome more interaction with local - maybe try some spices in the market or some street food. But I guess if we asked him, he would show us more of the city as he was very friendly and open. I highly recommend this tour.

Very good Mombasa tour around. We were also happy that it included the Fort Jesus too (entry fees has to be paid separately). So, if you planning to visit it, make sure you go with the tour as he will explain everything. We have staid in the fort for about 1 hour. The guide was informative and very professional. Thank you!
