City tour with Augustine was very informative and deep. We learned a lot of new things of Kenyan history and culture. We had a smooth walk through the city along with a nice and sometimes amusing stories on diverse topics. Highly recommended!

We did the combined city tour followed by a tour of mathare slum. Both guides were fantastic and I'd highly recommend this tour when you first get to Nairobi.
