Half Day Mombasa City Tour

Half Day Mombasa City Tour

The tour presents some of the best highlights of this colorful old city. You tour will visit the bustling fruit and vegetable market, which has been in operation since colonial days. As you wonder the streets of The Old Arab town, you will see the intricate hand carved doors, and balconies hanging over the narrow streets, unchanged for hundreds of years.

Protecting the harbor stands Fort Jesus which was built by the Portuguese 400 years ago, to protect their interest in east Africa. See how it went from Fort to prison to tourist attraction. Walk under the famous elephant tusks on Moi Ave, which you probably have seen in those old African adventure movies. Finally we visit the Akamba wood carvers center. Here you can purchase a fine hand carved African memento, that you would have to pay so dearly for back home. A short excursion full of culture, history and not to be missed. For the photographer, sights and opportunities for great photos abound.
