Then, head out to discover the city’s urban delights by both foot and public transport.

Pose for photos against the backdrop of Kenyetta International Conference Center – an impressive 28-story skyscraper – and then visit the August 7 Memorial Park, built to commemorate the bombing of the US Embassy in 1998.
Another highlight of your tour is a visit to Kenya National Archives – a site that’s a history museum in its own right. Browse the array of historical photographs, traditional artwork and Kenyan crafts while learning about the tribes of Kenya from your guide.
Stop for lunch at a traditional restaurant in town, and enjoy a Kenyan delicacy as a main course. The menu varies each time, but typical dishes include Kenyan stew (casseroled beef, goat or chicken) and ugali (a creamy cornmeal paste) served with vegetables and a rich sauce.
After chatting with your guide about city life and Kenyan cuisine, walk back to the start point to finish your tour.
Tour itself was great; guide was dependable. However, manager of Urban Adventures did not follow through on our appointment for a tour. I called long distance to confirm the tour, but no one was there initially because of lack of follow through on the part of the Urban Adventures manager.
