    Managers of the Colors of Zanzibar were kind and understanding and they really helped us to get best out of our holiday on the island. They took us to remote beaches, swimming with the dolphins and even to see Stone Town at the evening time. This kind of assistance made it certainly easier to adjust to the culture on the island. I feel we got really induvidual service and it was great to notice that their price range were really aprropriate. Normally we try to stay away from tailored services because of the usual high fares. I recommend this small company warmly!

    We had an amazing time in january on the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba. Went to swim with the dolphins, saw the wonderful tortoises and sailed in the blue ocean. Our hosts from Colors of Zanzibar were most kind and helpful with EVERYTHING. And their office in the old town is mind blowing! If I have to find something negative, some of the tour guides were not the top notch (a private sailing trip ended up in transporting some local people and some tourist from island to island), so make sure you know what you should get. But I’m sure they are not using the not-so-professional guides anymore, after stating that out. Anyway, I recommend this agency from the bottom of my heart. Actually it’s much more than just an agency, I bet you will have two wonderful friends after arranging your trip with Khamis and Aino!

    Colors of Zanzibar arranged the probobly best holiday i have had so far. They really took the time to plan our trips and hotels/b&b:s so that the our holiday would be exactly what we asked for, and even better. As Khamis is a local he made it possible for us to also see the real Zanzibar and not only the tourist attractions. I strongly recommend Colors of Zanzibar. If you are planing of going to Zanzibar, they will give you the holiday you want.

    We rented a room in a beautiful house in the heart of Stone Town through Colors of Zanzibar in November 2015 and were very pleased with our stay. Our room had air-conditioning, which is essential in the Stone Town heat and enabled us to sleep like babies. We were able to cook and eat in the house, either in the kitchen or up on the cozy roof deck with a nice view across the rooftops of the area. The location was ideal with several shops and restaurants at a walking distance as well as the local market place hosting a nightly market with lots of different kinds of food and drink to try out, and even live music on a few nights of the week.

    The Colors of Zanzibar personnel were extremely helpful in planning our Zanzibar stay. They were able to answer all our queries in a more than satisfactory manner and organised enjoyable tours of Stone Town, local spice farms, and Prison Island for us. We especially liked their spice tour.

    We feel like, due to the friendly locals we were introduced at and through Colors of Zanzibar, we got to experience real Zanzibar culture, not just a touristy front, which is invaluable for anyone travelling the world. That being said, the price was right, too, and very much in line with the quality of service. We would most definitely recommend Colors of Zanzibar for anyone interested in exploring Tanzania!

    Extremely professional and timely service provided. Most impressed with Mr Khamis for his quick email response and clear tour description.

    Will definitely use them again.
    Many thanks to all, CHEERS.
