Great tour with an excellent guide, Salum. The visit is very interesting; Salum took us to all the key places in Zanzibar and was very available and very clear and interesting in his comments. He has a very good knowledge of the history of his city and his country. We warmly recommend this visit and this guide, Salum, who is also very friendly and smiling.

Notre guide était très bien. Malheureusement certaines des activités mentionnés dans le descriptif n'ont pas eu lieu. Cela n'était pas de la faute du guide. C'est juste que certains bâtiments sont actuellement en cours de rénovation.
