    Visite de la plantation d'épices en tous genres vraiment sympa. et instructif. En revanche, attention lors de vos achats, certains produits sont importés de chine. La Visite de la ville était intéressante, prendre un guide permet d'apprendre et voir des choses que l'on ne verraient pas forcément

    Sansibar hat neben Strand nicht so viel zu bieten, aber die Gewürz-Tour sollte man nicht verpassen. Ich würde immer alles privat Buchen, hier waren wir sehr zufrieden. +255 716 901 035.

    Bien: Increíble experiencia en la clase de cocina Swahili, muy recomendable la vista a la plantación de especias (Jambo Farm), gente auténtica y muy amable. Mal: Transporte deficitario (el conductor no sabía inglés ni español, mala limpieza), el guía de StoneTown no sabía mucho español y no explicó gran cosa, dimos una vuelta por la ciudad. Conclusión: Experiencia muy recomendable en la granja de especias/cocina Swahili, mala relación calidad/precio por el resto.

    Great trip half the price of the same in hotel.watch out everyone wants a tip, slave entry not included in price. Beware spice guide requesting entry again. Otherwise recommend this .

    The guide Ismail was very informative and the knowledge he had was first class. I managed to get my Partner and I into Freddie Mercury's house where he lived when he was young. The Spice farm was exceptional especially Mr Coffee he made it for us. Also there were only us two on the tour so it was like a private tour. Thank you for the experience....

    Full day tour at spice farm and guided tour in Stone Town in Zanzibar. The driver came to our hotel at 08.00 sharp to pick us up for this tour. Overall when we had hotel pick-up and drop off included in our tours it worked very well. The guide at the spice farm was very good and knew all the spices also in Swedish! We got a new guide for Stone Town and he was also very good and nice to walk around with. I recommend this tour

    we had a guide to take us through a spice farm and the stone town tour in Zanzibar. it was absolutely amazing and in a way very sad to see the slave market and find out about it's history. it was very enlightening to learn about the slave trade in Zanzibar in the years gone by. This is where the Obamas had been to and seeing the actual prison and living quarters makes one realize the desperation that the slaves felt just to survive. there is a beautiful Anglican Church that is worth visiting and finding out about the Scottish physician David Livingstone and how he was a hero to the African people also for those of us who love music, we also visited the house of the famous Freddie Mercury. i was surprised to find out that this musician was born in Zanzibar the spice farm was very interesting to someone who loves spices. we learned about the origin of many of the spices in out kitchen cabinets and how they are grown. there is a great small market where one can buy gift packs as well please learn to bargain there

    If you have a day even half day free in Zanzibar, I would recommend this tour. My guide Duller was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history of Stone Town as we completed the first segment of the tour walking through busy yet small streets which revealed such rich history of the region. From the artistic designs of spices and chains etc. which displayed in the sturdy doors of the businesses in Stone Town, serving also as advertisements for the businesses conducting behind those doors, to the existing and historical markets (fish market, Slave market etc.). Then experiencing the spice plantation tour was very informative and entertaining as I was able to interact with a wide array of spices, see the “butterfly man” climb the coconut tree, and even taste a large variety of fruits from the region. A wonderful experience.
