A tuk tuk 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.
Experience Mombasa’s iconic sites while learning about the history and culture.
You’ll meet the tuk tuk and guide near Fort Jesus. Wear comfortable shoes, carry a water bottle and T4P has the rest organised! Tour is personalised to your preference.
You’ll meet your guide at Fort Jesus, please note entrance into Fort Jesus is not included though you can choose to do this at an extra fee. Admire Fort Jesus from the outside and learn about the history.
We’ll drive 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 experience and stop to hop off wherever you like.
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. Next is the famous Tusks, snap a picture if you wish!
Visit the ultimate chill out spot with an authentic buzz in Mombasa. Walk through Mama Ngina, with the peaceful ocean on one side and busting street food vendors on the other.
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.
T4P created an excellent and well-thought-out itinerary. I was on a short 8-day visit to Mombasa and yet it packed a visit to Mide Creek, a night on a dhow boat, Safari, and Mombasa food tour.
If I have to pick my favourite experience then it has to be either seeing bioluminescence from the “Musafir” dhow boat or the morning canoe with Sijo at Mide Creek.
T4P was very helpful and involved in every aspect of the trip including arranging our VISA and travel documents, Booking accommodation, and local commute.
I can’t recommend T4P enough and will be back soon to Mombasa to relive some of the moments.
Travel4purpose arranged for us (a group of 6) a city tour of Mombasa. We went around with tuktuks and discovered the city with the help of our amazing drivers.
The booking experience, communication and overall professionalism of T4P was outstanding. Our guides on the day were also great, giving us the true local feel of the city. Definitely recommend!
The guide and tuk tuk driver was amazing, everything was so well explained. He also took some great pictures for us, what a great way to see Mombasa City! Thanks!
Had an amazing Mombasa food tour with Qamili. She’s a super nice and friendly person. We’ve had several stops to experience the local food and not only was the food very delicious there were also some really nice views she showed me. The tour was organized late afternoon which I think was a very good decision considering the hot temperatures in Mombasa. The tour takes around 2 hours /2,5 hours so there’s no need to rush. I’ve enjoyed it so much and would definitely recommend it.
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!
