Mombasa City Tour The Mombasa city tour was great! A wonderful way to see the city in action and get to know more about the area. Was able to pay by card/link which was good! Tyson was a great guide who made the experience more enjoyable for us 👍

Loved it! The view was was great and I have loads of nice photos! The guide was also lovely and chatty, making us feel very comfortable. We overall loved the experience. Definitely on the pricier side of other options but the ride was longer and more catered to our interests. It’s worth noting the coconuts at the end are not included and expensive for tourists (probably obvious but not to us!)

Cultural, Relevant, Impactful Experiences Sham of Travel4Purpose is thee absolute best. From the first contact up to the day we landed in Nairobi, she makes sure everything is organized well, so that we could enjoy each day to the fullest. And when she wasn’t available, she had someone there checking on us. From our drivers, to the tours, to the experiences even help with lodging everything was amazing. We wanted this trip to be a cultural, fun learning experience and we got that plus more with help from Sham. We just had to show up and all the rest was taken care of. Can’t wait to do it all again!

Interesting Mombasa City and Food Tour We requested a private city tour of Mombasa combined with the food tour. Travel4Purpose were very quick with the inquiry and were very flexible with arranging the pickup and return to our hotel. So if you don't see exactly what you want on their website, don't be afraid to reach out and inquire about the changes. We were picked up from our hotel in a car and then had an enjoyable day exploring the old town of Mombasa in a tuk-tuk, visiting the markets and some shops. We especially enjoyed visiting Imani Collective, where local women make different items (soft toys, bags, home accessories, etc.). You can be very specific with the places you want to visit and they are happy to accommodate your requests. We also enjoyed different snacks and drinks bought from the local vendors. At the end of the day we were returned back to our hotel in a car. Do take some cash with you if you want to buy something and also for tips to the local guides.

Great day organised by Travel4Purpose Sham of Travel4Purpose is the best. From the first contact upto the day after she makes sure everything is organised well, so that we could enjoy the day to the fullest. We started with a Nature Walk with the Giraffes. It was hot, but very impressive. Not only giraffes, but there were also other animals. To have a break before our next activity, we took lunch at Yuls. A very enjoyable place and good food. Then we went ahead for the Dhow tour. It was a great way to end the day: seeing the sunset from the boat and sipping coconot water from a coconut. We had a great time. The driver, the guide at Nguuni Sanctuary and the 3 sailmen were incredibly friendly. Thank you for a wonderful day.

We went on the boat trip with T4P, it was the most relaxing journey! The crew went above and beyond, even climbing the mast to the get the best group selfie! We also did a bracelet workshop with such lovely men by the Fort Jesus, they shared their stories and skills with us, we will be forever grateful for the insight they gave us on Mombasa! Thank you Sham and everyone!

I loved my experience on the street food tour! Qamili quickly became a friend, we explored areas of Mombasa I haven’t been to, and enjoyed some delicious street eat. Sham & Qamili communicated well and everything was smooth pre and post tour. I highly recommend it 🩵
