What people are saying about Zanzibar City
Haji was a great guide. Communicated with us prior to the tour, and helped structure the tour based on the portions that interested us the most. Prison island is definitely worth a visit to hear the history of the island and structures, and the turtle sanctuary is enjoyable as well. But the Stone Town walking tour was the highlight. Seeing the local markets and hearing a history of the spices, visiting the slavery museum and quarters; and countless other tidbits of info about the town provided a fantastic overview of the town. Our guide, Haji, was well informed on any questions we asked, and was always keeping an eye out on the small group to make sure everyone was okay. His knowledge of what we saw made the tour a 5-star experience. I highly recommend this excursion.
The timing was Not good. We booked the Tour from 4:00pm and we have to phone all over to get somebody to pick is up and all of them sayed, the tour always Starts at 4:30pm. I think, somebody forgot, that we are living in Stone Town Park Hyatt and not in the Beach Hotels, where you drive 30 min. To the dhow. The Captain and his assistant were very good, the guide aswell, but the quality of the boat was rather poor.
We found our guide to be very knowledgeable, friendly and his English was of a high standard.
