Alistair and Ahzma guided our family of 9 (4 adults and 5 children) throughout their community of Kibera. Immediately when they met us we felt safe and in the hands of knowledgeable guides. This local connection was valuable and evidenced by the genuine greetings they received from their community members we met throughout the 3 1/2 hour excursion. When we... More

Friendly and relaxed tourguide Alistair led us through the Kibera part of Nairobi, which feels like a very big village. A highly recommended walk of 4 hours with explanantions on the highway development that is going on in the area, past an HIV-kids primary school and several artisan shops and the three of us even went for a local dinner,...

Very positive experience which I will always remember. Because it's small, low-key and organised from within the community, it felt safe and kind of ok for me to be there, not like I was intruding or patronising people. I had to shorten my tour due to a delayed flight so missed out on seeing some of the projects but it... More

The tour was fantastic, really personal, knowledgeable, and takes you through the most interesting places in Kibera. Alistair was a great guide/community organizer who knows his stuff and cares deeply about Kibera.

This is a great experience for thoughtful travelers who want to see a different side of Nairobi. The tour gives unique access to Kibera and its people (I visited a school, women's cooperative, art workshop and a community center). Alistair is a fantastic guide who can help you understand all aspects of Kibera. I did the tour by myself (I'm... More

We decided to tour kibera as we had heard and read some about it. Explore kibera tours website explained what it would be like and we were interested in seeing this area. Alistair was our guide and he did a great job. He was very knowledgable, friendly and able to answer most of our many questions. We visited a shop... More

I recently did the Kibera Tour with local Alistair as my guide. The people in the area were incredibly friendly and welcoming and it was amazing to see the culture and way of life in this area and interact with it. You truly get to experience and see local life, which is what you expect and exactly what you don't... More

This was a really interesting, insightful and sobering experience. The people we visited were welcoming and friendly, and I felt completely safe the whole time. It is by no means a "go and take photos" type of activity, just walk around and see what life is like in one of the largest slums in Africa. The only drawback was that... More

The slum is well worth a visit and you get a good insight into what life is like but EKT don't bring much enthusiasm, give much of a commentary or take you right inside the dwellings and shops...you have to ask all the questions in order to get any information. They also drag you to a couple of places that... More
