  • This tour was amazing!

  • The good: Door to door transfer service which was punctual and courteous. Business class ferry tickets handed to you which saves you a lot of hassle, a car and driver with you wherever you go in Zanzibar, the turtle sanctuary is amazing and frankly worth the whole trip

    The not so great: I wasn't very interested in the spice plantation tour and that took too long. However, that was in the tour so couldn't skip it. I wish when i was in stone town i could have at least seen the old fort but I wasn't accommodated.

    In the end - this tour is exactly as advertised - no time or room for extras. If the options and price work for you, then you'll like it.
