My husband and I truly enjoyed this...
, Oct 2017
My husband and I truly enjoyed this bike tour. Not only is it packed with adrenaline, it's also serene, as we also were able to see so much of the natural terrain and the everyday life of the citizens of Mombasa, away from the touristy beach area. Julius and Sarah were excellent guides--friendly, welcoming and patient as we took a GAZILLION photos of the lovely countryside. Thank you for your warm hospitality. My only regret is not knowing the exact extent that we would bike through the smaller towns outside Mombasa. This is truly due to me, not the company. Had I have known, I would've purchased candies or brought along clothing items or school supplies, as you will encounter so many friendly children along the way, all of them yelling jambo Hello. Perhaps the touring company can promote some sort of donation drive, as you get so up close and personal with everyday people on this tour, you will feel the urge to give back in the spirit of reciprocity. Once again, such a lovely tour that truly provided depth to my Mombasa experience. Thank you!
