    It was the best experience in my hole trip! My tour guide Kelvin was so nice and he always made sure we get the best spots in all the attractions. Definitely recommend it, but don’t forget to ask for Kelvin to be your tour guide, I guarantee you won’t regret it :)

    My dad and I had a day tour with Francis. He is friendly and knowledgeable and so much fun to chat with. We HIGHLY recommend asking for him when you book with Gracepatt. Speaking of booking, that was a breeze. Grace replied to my inquiry promptly and handled a change in our plans with ease. Thank you Grace! The Nairobi Museum was wonderful. I could spend a lot of time there. If you love birds, this museum is a MUST! The elephant orphanage was adorable, the giraffe centre was a bucket list activity for me. Getting to feed and pet the giraffes was a dream come true. Francis took us to Bush Garden for lunch. Delicious food! Kazuri Beads is a must see! The craftsmanship and care these women put into their work is amazing. Easy to shop, shop, and shop some more in their store after the tour. A great day all around.

    One of the best days of our two week trip in Africa.Great value for the money, five activities for $120.with transport is unbeatable. Patrick our driver/guide was awesome and funny. A must if you love giraffes as I do. The baby elephants were adorable. Great deal on the Kazuni beads, they are as beautiful as the ladies making them. Oh the Bomas show, how culturally rich! A nice bonus was the walk through historical tour of the different tribes lodging and having a school group graciously touching and complimenting my soft blonde hair( I thought of Lady Dianna).Thank-you again Bonny and Bob

    We spent the day with Stephen Senga and he was a superb guide and companion. He filmed my husband feeding the giraffes ( H said this was the highlight of the whole week!), got us the best place to see the elephants at the orphanage, showed us a great place for lunch and then a visit to the bead factory. This was a truly great day and I hope others booking with Gracepatt get to meet Stephen.
