Bomas scammer
Jun 2021 • Solo
To begin with I thought this would be a nice way to start my time in Kenya. Everything went well with my guide until he started talking about how he was expecting me to tip him at the end. Immediately I felt pressured and uncomfortable. Then he took me to a souvenir shop praising how amazing the place was. When I walked to the store the shop keeper was trying to hustle me everything and lied to me several times when we negotiated prices. He tried to sell me a wooden statue for $850. I told him I’d take it for $300, then he said the difference in price was only $100!! Then I asked the tour guide to come over and he tried to get me to buy other items in the store. Clearly collaborating with the shop keeper and making commission off all the tourists that came in the store. When we left the store I felt really uncomfortable. I knew this guide was sketchy and untrustworthy. We then arrived at Bomas and had dinner before the show. We both ordered food and ate together. To my surprise the guide had me pay for his meal without even asking me or thanking me. I was in such disbelief I almost assumed this was supposed to happen. When I arrived at the hotel he asked me to tip him. I then called the agency and told them what happened. They were very defensive of him and told me to give him the benefit of the doubt. I would not recommend this company to anybody!

Thanks Etienne for giving us chance to serve you. According to my chat with you, your tour was okay. Kindly please next time stop pretending to be nice to guides by inviting them for Lunch and after tour tipping them then report to the office that you were forced to buy them lunch and give them tips.

Hey, My name is Saniya from Pune, India. I had booked from vsnapu when I was on a solo trip to Kenya. I was suggested vsnapu from my best friend who had booked from them very recently and loved it. The photographers are very good at heart and also suggest you various poses. The pictures, when they were mailed to me were just impressive and I couldn't stop looking at them. A very great experience indeed!

Stephen is amazing tour guide!
Feb 2020
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Stephen. I was the only one on the tour but he made sure that he told me every little detail from the Giraffe centre, elephant orphanage, kazuri beads factory and then at bomas of kenya! I also like how there was time in between each site to rest. He was also a really great personal photographer (if you're like me and by yourself, you're in good hands). I enjoyed every single moment. Thank you!

Perfect to fill one day in Nairobi
Aug 2019
There are tons of providers operating variations on this exact tour, as these are highlights for Nairobi! I was really satisfied with my choice of tour operator - this is important, because every location is packed with other tourists and their tour guides! You need someone who is assertive, confident and knows what they are doing. That was our guide, Stephen. A bit cheeky, he knows how to get prime position for the elephants, take the perfect photos of you with the giraffes, and is happy to stroll through the Bomas telling you about his tribe. He will changeup the order of things where needed to maximise use of time (eg we ordered lunch THEN went to the Bead Factory while it was being cooked). There was no stop I didn't enjoy on the tour and I felt safe and comfortable at all times. I was a solo traveller and there was just one other couple on the tour.

Best layover ever
Nov 2019 • Solo
I had a long layover in Kenya and had enough time to do a full day tour with Stephen. He was such an awesome tour guide and was really helpful. Even though my flight arrived really early in the morning and he came out to pick me up on time and even took me to a place where I could eat breakfast. He was really informative and helpful. Thanks for such a great time!

Giraffe Centre, Elephant orphanage and Bomas of Kenya were perfect for a full day tour!
Nov 2019
I decided to take the Giraffe Centre, Elephant Orphanage, and Bomas of Kenya Day Tour from Nairobi with Stephen due to the fact that I was really interested in visiting both Giraffe Centre and Elephant Orphanage. In addition, I am very much interested in African traditional dance and always wanted to watch and explore it.

Stephen was very punctual, polite, friendly and nice from the very beginning. He is very knowledgeable and helpful and is eager to help with any requests I had.
Apart from that, Stephen knows what is the best time for each and every location and made sure we arrived to each destination on time.

I would like to thank Stephen for his professionalism and kindness! I was very lucky I took this tour with him.

Completely met our expectations for seeing animal and cultural sites in Nairobi. Our guide, Stephen Mutuku, was very knowledgeable of all the sites we visited even getting us the best photo opportunities. His handling of the Nairobi traffic was awesome. We highly recommend this tour for couples/families.
