The trip was really educating and fun. I being a local here in mombasa thought it was a really amazing experience. You really get to see the culture and beauty of mombasa rather than just the hotels and loud crazy matatus.

Seeing the creek and the mangroves surrounding it was a breathtaking view.

You got to go to hard to reach places around villages. Best part was you could go on your own pace, so you never really got extremely exhausted, like i thought we would.

The tour guides were friendly and they were also really informative, even if you didn't ask questions.

It was an unforgettable experience. On the bike you have a chance to come close to the local population as you never could in an safari bus. What was meant to be a fitness tour ended up being an adventurous trip trough the local villages. Cool. I can recommend this to anybody. No better way to get a taste of Africa. Very friendly tour guides as well.

Hands down the best thing we did! Not exactly biking the coast, but better... biking through villages and part of the forest. We stopped to talk with the locals and some of the children ran next the bikes. It was very hot and humid so I recommend leaving as early as possible. The only thing we found difficult was biking through the sand with a worn bike. The bikes were all in OK shape but definitely showed their wear and tear from the conditions. Changing gears was difficult... but it's Africa, what else could you expect. The guides and owner were all fantastic. You even get some pictures emailed to you from your departure! Definitely a must do in Mombasa, but would recommend staying in south Mombasa for the beaches.

I could not believe that such a tour exists in Mombasa, Kenya. Been brought up and living in Mombasa for the last 25 years I saw parts of the coast I had never seen before and it was totally worth it!! I had taken the three coasts tour and really enjoyed it!!

The tour guide Benson was extremely friendly and patient.

I definitely would recommend 'Bike the coast' for anyone visiting Mombasa on holiday and are looking for a fun day out full of adventure and exploration!!

Rolf and Benson provide a warm welcome and a choice of routes. I really wanted to go bike riding in Mombasa but found navigating busy streets made it almost impossible. They take you to scenic, safe routes at whichever pace suits you.
