What people are saying about Mama Ngina Waterfront

The guide took a lot of time and showed me a lot. However, I always had to pay for the Tuk Tuk rides. Also, at times I felt like he was dragging me from one market to the next. However, you probably wouldn't experience this as a "normal" tourist. I felt safe throughout and he took great care of me.

Really Nice, we have a lot of fun all together around Mombasa! I suggest it to everybody! The guide was really kind and available all the time

Very great tour, professional guide who told us a lot about Mombasa. The hot spots we visited were also very interesting.
