“We had wanted to do some of the St James Way walk around or near San Sebastin as our time in northern Spain was limited. I found Urban Adventures on TripAdvisor and spotted the tour 'Hiking the St James Way'. This sounded perfect, setting out from San Sebastin up and over the Ulia Mountain finishing in the beautiful seaside village of Pasaia. Tomasz was our guide for this hike and for us, he was an inspiration. Coupled with that, Tomasz's sense of humour, his local knowledge both historical and current enabled us to gain an understanding of the Basque culture and the importance of it to the people. The hike was relaxing with a number of short stops to look at the incredible views of the ocean or to gather more information. The walk culminated in Pasaia with a short boat trip to Pasaia San Juan; a walk through a narrow medieval type street with a coffee and tortilla potato in the piazza. Afterwards, we caught a bus back to San Sebastin when there was enough time to explore some of his recommended plans. Thank you Tomasz for an unforgettable experience!”

“We had a great time with Rob during our Philly History Tour. He pointed out so many interesting things and was patient with us when we were a few minutes getting there (oops!). It was so awesome to wrap up the tour at the brewery and talking with Rob more. We'd recommend it to anyone! Had a blast!”
ITINERARY

Your Nairobi tour will whisk you away from your hotel (in air conditioned comfort) to the rural township of Ngong Hills, where we’ll visit with a local community of women who are on a vocational and lifestyle retraining program. These women were once on the streets with their families, but are now participating an 18-month program to give them the skills they need to build better lives. 

Over a cup of tea or coffee you’ll hear their inspiring stories. The women use storytelling as a way to leave the past behind and look forward to the future, and you’ll be left in awe. You’ll also get to tour the centre where the women are learning how to empower their lives and start their own businesses. 

After a light lunch with the women, we’ll take a short trip to the countryside, to an area known as Kiserian, the traditional homeland of the Maasai. Here you’ll meet one of the graduates from the program who now owns her own home and runs a small business. 

In the shade of an Acacia tree, your host Peri will give insight into what being a Maasai women means, with all its rituals and obligations. You’ll become immersed in the culture of the Maasai as Peri tells her story, partly through traditional verse and song. She will recount her journey from living in open fields with her children, to now being fully self-sufficient. While you’re here, you might also catch a glimpse of herds of cows and goats being moved by the Maasai tribesmen. 

Before you leave, you’ll get to participate in making a traditional Maasai wristband to take home with you as a memory of your day. 

By the end of the day you’ll have visited two local communities most travellers never get to see. Not only that, but you’ll also get to connect with locals, hear their stories, see how they live, and gain a greater understanding of the strength of the Kenyan people.
