Unique expirience...we met normal people ...went to their houses and went on a local market. Visiting Kenya without this would be just visiting hotel. People in the town are very friendly and kind. It is save to go there with local.

Jocy us a charming young lady with good communication skills. She is very reassuring and friendly. She communicates good upfront and waited for us right on time. We did not do the tour she proposed in the add, we improvised a bit in and around Mombasa. She is very honest and kind. I would recommend her. @jocy: stay in touch 😁

Cette expérience est unique, car j'ai pu me retrouver au cœur d'une ville africaine et découvrir tout un univers, un mode de vie. J'ai rencontré des personnes à la fois proches de nous et très différentes dans leur façon de vivre dans un lieu urbain aux antipodes du notre. Si vous aimez découvrir le monde en général et l'Afrique en particulier , je vous conseille de rencontrer Jessie.

Jacy made me discover what I did not expect: behind the scenes After hanging out on the beach for a while I wondered what I could do. This very short getaway was quite fascinating and exciting. Never would have had the idea to go visit this district, because nothing is done to reassure the tourist. Very quickly the smile of people and the interest of children for our presence shattered all my prejudices. People's lives and their conditions, their dreams and their passions ... and in addition we can take advantage of it to make purchases that are (too) bad. Thanks Jacy! m'a fait découvrir ce a quoi je ne m'attendais pas: l'envers du décor Après avoir traîné sur la plage quelques temps je me suis demandé ce que je pourrais faire. Cette escapade très courte était tout à fait fascinante et passionnante. Jamais n'aurais eu l'idée d'aller visiter ce quartier, car rien n'y est fait pour rassurer le touriste.Très vite le sourire des gens et l'intérêt des enfants pour notre présence a balancé tous mes préjugés. La vie des gens et leurs conditions , leurs rêves et les leurs passions ...et de surcroît on peut en profiter pour faire des achats sant (trop) se faire avoir. Merci Jacy!

Jocinter met us at our hotel and took us through the part of Ukunda you wouldn’t see on your own. We really saw the way people live, work and have a community in this village with no running water or electricity. I would not have known how to visit this place without a guide. We enjoyed it very much.
