Many thanks for your review, and sorry to hear about your inconvenience. Please note we are only service providers for tickets and transfers so that the guest could avoid the hassle as much as possible of buying ticket and getting to the terminal but we wish we could control the local crowd who use this train for daily commute between the cities.

BAD SGR express train ticketing
Feb 2020
When I arrived at the train station I could not get my ticket. The ticketing agent needed a local Nairobi phone number. The ticket voucher that I got from the ticketing company did not have a local phone number so I was not able to get my ticket. I ended up buying a second ticket. If you are thinking for buying your ticket this way make sure you contact the tour company and ask for the phone number they gave SGR or they will not issue you a ticket. The ticket voucher is not your boarding ticket and can only be obtained at the train station.

I paid months in advance. No ticket upon arrival at ticket booth and email that claimed ticket was enclosed.

I am surprised they are still peddling this service. Although I paid for the Nairobi to Mombasa ticket months in advance I found at the ticket office that the ticket had not been purchased by this provider although on the day of travel an email from them purported to enclose a ticket. The download I opened announced that it was not a ticket. The train was full and a security person had to help me get a flight to Mombasa.
Viator promptly refunded my money and promised to give me the difference in expenses to get to Mombasa but failed to timely compensate me despite countless emails from me during the ensuing month during my journey to 9 locations where my now tightened budget deprived me of some experiences. They finally compensated me after I returned but not when I needed it most.
I had looked forward to the train trip and the possibility of seeing animals as the train traversed game parks. That looked for adventure was robbed from me by these people.

We pre booked the train journey from Nairobi to Mombasa, which cost 50% more by booking via trip advisors agent. The agent cancelled the trip 3 days before our journey was due to take place, leaving us with little option to find alternative arrangements due to Christmas break and availability of alternative means of transport due to the busy Christmas period and services already booked.

The train journey Itself was not cancelled, the operator did not book the tickets in time so cancelled our trip. We’re very unsatisfied, with the service offered. After hours of research we managed to find a flight to
Mombasa - which cost an additional £95 per person - flight cost more £120 each compared to the original train journey cost of £25 if we actually booked direct once we arrived in Kenya.

Do not book this journey via trip advisors agent. Instead, take the risk of booking the train journey direct in
Kenya (which you can only do 7 dats in advance)

Terrible service, especially once you booked the train journey the agent stated the tickets were non refundable.

Modern transfer
Oct 2019 • Family
We used the SGR train from Nairobi to Mombasa, and back again 2 weeks later. 10 of us travelling together, and it was seamless. Lots of security checks, but to be expected. Ticket booking could only be done via local mobile phone payment system, which seemed ridiculous. Stations were modern and clean., as was the train. Forget the food on board, just carry your own. All in all a good experience.
