Santa, the tour guide, was great. He was willing to wait a few extra hours for me to hike extra routes people don’t normally go for. He was very knowledgeable as well and told me a lot about Kenyan culture and Nairobi as we drove to Mt Lonognot. When I had to move the pickup

This is quite an expensive trip, and when we booked, it clearly said that there would be a photo-up at Great rift valley, a guided tour up and around Mt.Longonot, and a trip to Lake Naivasha with a boat ride. We were Looking forward to everything and everything started smoothly.

Hello Normadi Thank you very much for this feedback . We are very happy you enjoyed the tour and that Albert was a great driver . The issue about overpricing is not what it seemed ,we have been taking visitors to the Longonot for a very long time ,The price is very moderate considering the services we offer ,the distance is also very far and we pay for entrance fee .The only thing that is part of the tour and is not paid for is the boat ride which is 20$ ,The driver Albert went a head and even lent the cash to you so that you would not miss it ,one of our staff members even called to explain more .We are very sorry if this inconvenienced you ,we will go ahead and change the program on the web. We do really hope you will visit us once again and we will gladly conduct the tour for you . Once again accept our apologies for these misunderstanding
