Tour description

Mombasa has a long history dating back to the 2nd century AD Mombasa's most prosperous period was probably in the 15th century when it was the largest and most sophisticated trading city on the coast. The coastal cities were controlled by Swahili and operated as independent principalities.
Around the year 1500, the people of Mombasa wore golden robes and lived in splendid multi-storey houses richly decorated with bentwood.

Rich with a variety of cultures, the tour starts at Fort Jesus, an old building dating back to the 16th century, Mombasa's Old Town dating back to the 2nd century, Slave Market (Today's Spice Market), Mama Ngina Boardwalk, Commonwealth Tombs War, Elephant Tusk and Swaminayaran Temple.

Antony showed us around Mombasa (Old Town) and explained us everything (history and much more) very clearly. He also helped us buying in the Spices Market (very good prices) and avoiding people annoying us. He knows his way and was lovely to do the tour with him.
