A walking tour through Mombasa Old Town with an English Speaking Guide visiting the famous sites and discovering Mombasa’s favourite off the beaten path spots.
You can do this trip any time of the year. Half a day is needed for this tour.
Experience Mombasa’s iconic sites while learning about the history and culture.
The tour will start and end at Fort Jesus, where you’ll meet your guide. Wear good walking shoes and T4P has the rest organised! Tour is personalised to your preference.
Our first stop will be Fort Jesus a declared World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. This is Mombasa’s most visited touristic attraction, with a whole load to learn and be interested by. Opportunities to take pictures and visit the museum.
We’ll now take a guided walk through Old Town, learning about the narrow lanes, architecture, buildings, cultural norms and meeting some iconic people of Old Town. You’re welcome to visit shops during the walk.
Mombasa is known as the melting pot of Kenya, with a number of different cultures coming together. This is shown in the Old Town Market, with a variety of vendors selling a range of products. We can then take a tuk tuk to see the famous Tusks, snap a picture if you wish!
Carry a copy of your passport at all times. A water bottle is advisable to avoid buying single use plastic and it can get pretty warm. Also good walking shoes is a good idea.
Of course, the guides have a lot of knowledge and know where is the best to shop. Ask away.
Morning is usually best to avoid hours where it become hot. We’d say 9am – Midday.
A great insight to Mombasa, we were shown many fascinating sites, interacted with locals and experienced the thriving culture. Would suggest anyone who wants to see Mombasa more authentically to try this tour out!
