Zanzibar: Stone Town 3-Hour Walking Tour
- Transportation included
- Duration: 3 hours
- Private group
OUR GUIDE SAVED US FROM OUR WORST NIGHTMARE!! Because we traveled during the epidemic, we had a miscommunication with our resort and we found out that the resort was actually closed when we were nearly arriving there. Imagine our panic... being foreigners we didn't know anybody who could help us, plus 90% of the resort's were still closed at that time. Our driver/guide was tirelessly calling to everyone in order to find us accommodation, he even managed to find the contact of the resort manager and he didn't leave us until make sure that we were comfortably installed. Thanks to him and his effort we were finally able to start a nice and pleasant trip after a stressful begging. Also, he is extremely intelligent and funny. During our ride he kept passing is knowledges about the Tanzanian history which I really appreciate! I recommend 200%!
It's nice to see and feed the turtles (we also caught a couple getting it on which was amusing) and the guide gives you a nice tour of the island and it's history. Doesn't really need 3 hours though unless you want to spend time at the restaurant or swim on the island's beach (we had already eaten and spent the morning at the beach so ended up spending about 45 minutes which was enough).
We really enjoyed our trip with ... He was really nice, open and informative. Shared much info about the history and the traditions in Zanzibar. Was quite flexible regarding the schedule. We had a lunch in a local authentic restaurant suggested by the guide.
Good guide, seems that everyone in Stone City knows him. We wandered through the narrow streets, visited most landmarks and were told about local architecture traditions. Afterwards we had a lunch in an Indian-cuisine restaurant. It was good.
Great guide and great rude on quads into Unguja Island inner villages. Great experience to have and to see. We also had stop at spices farm and saw many things that we use for cooking but never seen how they grow. Fantastic stuff.
