What people are saying about Arusha (Region)

My girlfriend and I did a private tour. Both the guide and the driver were very friendly, responded to individual requests in the best possible way and were very punctual when we picked them up at the hotel. The guide had a lot of interesting facts about the Arusha National Park in stock. We felt very comfortable and would book the day trip again.
