“We had an amazing time on our Amsterdam Food by Foot tour - we got to try some of the most amazing local food (hello those french fries in a cone!), and our guide was a local who was super knowledgeable about Amsterdam's history. The highlight was a boat ride on the canals - would definitely go back & tour again.”

“We had two days (one weekend) to explore Mexico City. After scouring the web for tours we landed on the Urban Adventures Beyond Mexico City: Hidden Teotihuacan & Family Dinner. We were looking specifically for an intimate small group tour and this sounded like a good fit. There were 8 people total in our group - 2 Brazilians, 2 Australians, 3 Californians and the tour guide from Mexico City. We met our guide, Caesar, around 12pm on a Sunday in the city center and strolled through town to public transportation. This part was easy and painless. Caesar carried the bus and metro tickets, all we had to do was hop on! He made sure to connect with each person on the bus journey and shared more information about the area. Once we arrived in Teotihuancan, we explored the underground temples and climbed the pyramids. There's also a Teotihuacan museum that you can explore. Caesar has a passion for ancient history and is extremely knowledgeable about the pyramids. We then walked to the charming town of San Francisco, at the base of the archeological site, where we met local families. It was so special to sit in a family's backyard, drink tequila and agave liquor from their own agave plants, and learn more about the history of the land. The family dinner was delicious - best meal we had all weekend (and that's saying a lot considering how delicious the food is in Mexico City) ! We would highly recommend an Urban Adventure tour and will look out for the company in other cities we visit.”

“Elizabetta was an outstanding guide. She was able to accommodate a range of people from a variety of backgrounds and of varying age. She was also able to inform us about Venetian culture, even some of the local and current families who make their living in Venice. At the end of the tour we had had the most fulfilling of times. In fact I don't think the short time we spent with Elizabetta and the group will be topped, and we still have 15 weeks of our round the world trip left!”
ITINERARY

Nothing defines the Maasai so perfectly as the intricate and ornate jewellery that symbolises their cultural heritage. This full-day Nairboi tour is held in the Masai homelands around Ngong Hills, and captures the spirit and essence of Masai life.

This Nairobi tour is run in partnership with One Horizon Africa, a non-profit organisation dedicated to alleviating poverty in Kenya and South Africa that holds no religious or political affiliations. Tours are managed by a dedicated Kenyan staffing team who all have a background in travel and tourism, and have joined the team because of their commitment to helping their fellow citizens.

Your Nairobi tour will be led by two Maasai tribeswomen and sisters who learned the skills of Maasai jewellery-making from their grandmother. Sitting under cool acacia trees in the stunning countryside, you will make your own Masai wristband under their guidance, using the colour codes observed by the Masai. Best of all, you’ll get to keep your handmade jewellery as your own memento of the day.

If you like, you can also take part in traditional Maasai singing and dancing, which will be experienced as part of your day.

This In Focus experience offers a total cultural immersion that will leave you with memories for a lifetime!

All net proceeds of this tour will go to One Horizon Africa.
