The Nairobi 24-hour tour is the bespoke city tour you need to experience this year
Turnup.Travel’s Nairobi 24 – hour tour is back and it’s an experience you should at least try once. If you’re looking for a tour experience that doesn’t take you out of the city and ends in a day, this is your chance. The tour is set for September 7th.
What is the Nairobi 24-hour tour?
Every year, Turnup.Travel brings together Kenya’s top content creators, journalists, artists, travellers and expat communities living in Nairobi to collaborate in an effort to showcase the lesser-known, softer side (if you will) and usually overlooked facets of the city during the full-day experience. This year, the tour is dubbed “New Perspectives” and will showcase the best aspects of modern Africa. The 2019 24-hour tour will be the 5th of its kind but if you’re curious about the 4th and 3rd, you can read all about them here.
Nairobi has a population of over 4 million, with a diverse populace and cosmopolitan vibe that shines through its art, food, entertainment, architecture, culture and through the values of the communities who call this ‘green city under the sun’ home.
Why you should consider signing up
The tour presents an opportunity both personally and collectively to co-create and connect people across the board by casting a spotlight on the heart, spirit and soul of the city using the backdrop of its diversity, beauty and flavours. In short, the tour will prove to you why Nairobi is a cultural melting pot with shared history and aspirations and worth exploring.
