Meet your host, Philomena

Host on Airbnb since 2019
  • Identity verified
I am the owner and manager of Get2explore. I have lived in Mombasa for as long as I can remember and have been involved in hotel tourism industry for more than 5 years. As a public relations and entertainer who couldn't find time to cook my meals, I sifted out some of the best locations for street food, treats and drinks in the city to grab on the go and learn a thing or more about the island.
When travelling have always been passionate about seeing a country or city through the eyes of the local people rather than simply being a number in a large tour group. Therefore have created a number of tours that do just that, offer tourists from both in land and abroad an opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture of Mombasa through food, drinks, dance, history and the people.

Where you'll be

We will meet up at the Uhuru gardens (the park next to the elephant tasks monument) where will walk or take a tuktuk ride to visit a local coffee maker who's been serving Swahili coffee for years. Will then visit the old Town and mama ngina for local and Swahili food and treats. Will then go to the souvenirs and Heena places in the city. We will do all the above and many more as we also learn about the history of the city and the people.
