    Still looks beautiful from outside, and clearly well-maintained. I enjoyed the display banners timeline since it was built. I was surprised that it was voted by a few media as one of the top train stations globally!

    Walked out with a few items - difficult to resist the colourful items made and sold by locals there. They are great influencers. I have been to markets in many countries (including Asia) and the prices are not cheap here. Have to negotiate which is accepted.

    The exhibits were interesting but some rooms or walkways were not accessible due to maintenance needing to be done. We found the outdoor dinosaurs fun and some of the indoor exhibits very interesting though. Worth the visit, just wish it was in better shape.

    Went to spend some time in quiet early on Saturday but seems that an event was happening so I only stayed for ten minutes. The interior is very unique but I couldn't find the Tabernacle, if it was what I think it was it didn't have the red candles so I couldn't identify it.

    It was interesting to see the old cannons and walk around inside but it would have been better if there were a guided tour on giving some more facts and history. The exhibits inside were also good.

    Went in for a relaxing stroll. Extremely clean, peaceful, and only a few locals (seems like great place to escape the office), and safe.

    The Museum of the Railroads of Mozambique is a treasure of colonial architecture that is well preserved, clean, and interesting. There are antique train engines on view and the building itself. It is a must see on any visit to Maputo.

    Really well-maintained, still as white as if it was painted this month. Went inside for a peep, but not as impressive inside as from outside.

    Drive through the roundabout and you can't miss it. Area was quite (for a city roundabout) and very clean. Right next to Cathedral

    Start your bargain with a tenth or third of the price and work your way up to a compromise. For example, the T-shirts started at MZN 8000 but whittled it down to 4K. They also use the line that you take pity by paying the exorbitant price. Not for the soft-hearted/gullible tourist or else get ripped off.

    There are a few interesting explanations but most of what you see are hundreds of different stones. I would only recommend this museum, if you are interested in stones ( I am not) or have nothing else to do.

    This tour was great. We were visiting by cruise ship, so only had the set day and time. It was a Saturday, so I reached out and they accommodated our group! The guide Hendy is so knowledgeable, we learned so much. Highly recommend this tour when in Maputo.

    Having never been to Mozambique, I sought the advice of a reliable South African tour operator that I know very well. They referred me to Mabeco tours and quickly I was in contact with Simao Langa. I sent my requirements to him and he arranged everything in Mozambique for us from A-Z. He had someone meet us on arrival in the airport and guide us through the complexities of Mozambique's bureaucratic immigration procedures and Simao himself was waiting outside to greet us. He arranged our transfers, our hotel, a tour of Maputo itself, and a great full day outing to Eswatini. The arrangements made by Simao and his personal attention to our visit made all the difference for us and made our experience in Mozambique wonderful. I highly recommend Mabeco and Simao and will be happy to return to Mozambique!

    We recently took a Maputo Top 10 tour and highly recommend it. Booking was very easy through Whatsapp and Daniel was very responsive. We had to postpone our tour as our son was sick and Daniel was very understanding. Milton was a great tour guide. We enjoyed hearing more about the history of the country and of the city, learning about the different architectural styles and influences, and seeing the major sites. Milton patiently answered all of our questions and provided such interesting insights into current events, politics, and the economy. If you only have a day or two in Maputo, this is a must do. Even if you have lived here for years, it is worth experiencing. There is no way you can get the same experience simply by reading through a guidebook.
