Great Company - ask for Saida as your guide

We booked on to the stone town tour & coupled it with the culinary experience as we are both big foodies and we’re keen to experience typical Zanzibar dishes. In the end we enquired via WhatsApp 08:45 and was booked on 09:30 for pickup 11:00 so this was great for us.

Our transfer was $80 return from Nungwi to Stone Town and arrived a little later than 11:00 but we didn’t mind - the driver was very quiet and did not speak to us at all. On arrival to Stone Town, Saida met us and we began the tour. Everything was included to the price and she blended very well the two tours meaning our experience was very natural as we went from historical site to small vendor shop to experience some local foods. The tour lasted around 6 hours and in that time we visited all major sites in central stone town - our highlight however was coffee at Jaw’s Corner with all the locals.

Saida is very knowledgable and keen to interact with her clients - prompting questions and making sure our experience met our expectations. Great Job Saida!

Authentic Experience

Mohammad was our guide and did an excellent job of explaining the history of Stone Town along with introducing us to new local foods. It is a great way to see Stone Town and try local food and stop at spots we never would have. I would recommend coming hungry because you will get more than enough food!
