“My husband's 20-someting-yr-old cousins were in town and we had a BLAST on this Urban Adventure. Much more than "just Friday Night Lucha Libre" the evening was a bit on the debaucherous side (in a good way)! First of all... LUIS is AWESOME. As soon as we met him I knew we were in good hands. We wandered down the crowded street from the Zocalo until Luis whisked us up to the top of Torre LatinoAmerica where we enjoyed killer views of Mexico City while sipping on cocktails. Then we settled the belly with a quick stop for an authentic torta (yummy pork sandwich) before continuing our stroll to the famous El Tenampa cantina in Plaza Garibaldi for tequila and mariachis. You'll read about how shady Plaza Garibaldi can be... but you're with LUIS! And Luis knows everyone and totally takes care of you!!! I'm telling you....This guy is a magician! We were totally charmed. And on to the main event via quick metro-ride! Once again Luis knows everyone along the way from peanut-vendors to the artist of hand-painted caps to the ushers who take you to your seat. You can read all about Lucha Libre so I wont go there - but I will tell you, if you want to be seated next to the guy that is screaming the most colorful and unique language in The Arena -- you want to be next to Luis! #localsknow Don't go any other way -- Go in style with Luis!”

“Our Istanbul guide (can't remember her name) was extremely knowledgeable and efficient. Each stop in the itinerary was high quality and I'd otherwise not have known.”

Escape Nairobi’s bustling city centre and head towards the leafy suburb of Karen. Nairobi has become famous for its traffic – but you’ll get to sit back and take in the interesting sites of local life on our journey through  East Africa’s largest city. Your driver and guide will be tell you about Nairobi’s history and modern life as you travel. 

Our first stop will be the Africa Fund for Endangered Wildlife’s famous Giraffe Centre. The centre has pioneered an innovative breeding programme that’s helping to grow the population of the endangered Rothschild giraffe in the wild. You’ll learn more about this fascinating animal and the breeding project as you get up close and personal with the giraffes from the centre’s raised walkway. 

Afterwards, we’ll head the short distance to David Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage, located on the edge of Nairobi National Park. Since its inception, the project has hand-reared more than 150 baby elephants that have been orphaned in the wild, often due to poaching. The orphanage helps to reintegrate these gorgeous creatures into the wilds of Tsavo National Park in the east of the country. You’ll learn more about this fascinating venture and see the baby elephants being fed by their keepers. 

We’ll then head back to central Nairobi, where our tour will end around lunchtime, leaving you free for the rest of the afternoon to explore downtown Nairobi on your own.
