Flawless
5/5

I cannot recommend Tekko Tours enough. We had an incredible two week trip all booked through Carol at Tekko and everything went off without a hitch! We hiked Kilimanjaro, went to Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti, Masai Mara, Lake Nukuru, and Ol Pejeta Conservancy and had amazing guides throughout- Wines (Kilimanjaro), Medy (Tanzania Safari), and William (Kenya Safari). Even in the times of COVID, we didn't have to think of anything while on our trip - we were simply able to enjoy and the Tekko team took care of everything. Highly recommend!

Excellent!
5/5

I cannot say enough good things about Tekko Tours! From beginning to end, the planning and the trip itself were fantastic! The staff is professional, knowledgeable, very responsive and warm. Our trip was cancelled and re-routed two times due to COVID-19 and Risper at Tekko Tours did an amazing job at finding solutions quickly. She has been extremely patient and efficient.
Our guide William who accompanied us for 5 days was remarkable. He was extremely pleasant, resourceful, professional and knowledgeable. He was kind, conscientious and we loved being with him!
I absolutely recommend Tekko Tours!

Very reliable operator with great customer service
5/5

Did an excellent 5 day/4 night safari with Tekko Tours to Ol Pejeta, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mari in July 2021. Carol in the office was very responsive and professional in customising the trip and dealing with my many amendments and questions. The price quoted was very competitive and we found the safari good value.

The driver-guide Jackson was friendly and professional, drove very carefully and kept the vehicle clean and tidy. He was reliable, punctual and had good wildlife knowledge. Would use Tekko Tours again without hesitation, highly recommended.

Tekko Tours amazing support before, during and after the trip.
5/5

I travelled with my wife to Kenya for a 14-day safari + beach journey. One of the things I would like to highlight is the communication I had with Carol from Tekko tours. I was skeptical mainly because the pandemic we are facing and some restrictions to travel. Tekko tours was very supportive to prepare this trip, everything was planned, and we had a unique experience.
I also would like to highlight our tour guide, Jackson, who was taking care of every detail while we were on the safari, creating a nice and tailored experience.
I recommend Tekko Tours for this kind of unique experience.

Horrible experience with the guide Stephen !!!
1/5

On the day of our arrival in Nairobi, the guide was over 1.5 hours late at the airport. Then we had to walk and wait another time 20 minutes because he had parked his car outside the airport parking lot.
Barely on the road leaving for our safari he stopped to fill up with gasoline (couldn't he do it before picking us up when we had 12 hours of theft in our legs?).

On the way he said to us "why are you coming when it is raining?" January is not a good time to come (contrary to what we can read on the net).
Are we responsible for the weather? He replied that we had to call before coming! How then to organize a 15-day trip with hotels planes...


Finally at the arrival of the 1st park (Tsavo) before doing our 1st game drive, he asks us if we can take 4 people (Poles I believe) with us because they have a problem with their Jeep. To that we answer no because a little tired of his attitude and not to mention that we had arranged a private safari just for the 2 of us. Suddenly he does not like much and it was the climbing ...

He didn't like to repeat himself (we are not specialists in the animal world and even less English speakers) and allowed himself to think about us or downright hikes of your "I already told you!" Style. or "Close the open roof now and don't discuss!"

I forgot ... We had a problem with the police because he had not updated his car insurance (3 hours to wait at the police station)
His Jeep did not have the 4 * 4 system either (supposedly broken on the way) and he had lent his tools (shovel and bars) which would have helped us to get out of a stuck in the mud instead. we had to clear it by hand. After getting dirty, no thank you from him ... In short, a horrible experience with this guide probably close to retirement age and who did not want to take this tour but are we responsible for it?

No compensation or commercial gesture on the part of Tekko tour despite the kindness of Carole with whom I was in contact for the organization.

Finally one thing shocked me: the guide lied about the number of game-drives made by his replacement (a freelance massai) who was not paid as he should. I learned about it a few months later and I made a complaint by mail and the problem was resolved without Tekko Tour ever acknowledging their fault.
Lamentable...
