"Great tour! You see a lot for one day, a perfect overview of Zanzibar. Akmed was friendly and engaging, and also knew a lot about the area and the history and culture. The tour of Stone Town and all of its nooks and crannies was perfect also. I enjoy history and read a lot about it and the guide was knowledgeable, friendly and able to answer most of my questions. Often you will find with city tours that the guide has memorized a script and sometimes is passing incorrect information. This was an exceptional tour both for the islands we visited and the tour of the city. Akmed went out of his way to make sure the trip was enjoyable. Thanks guys!"..."

Big Game/ Deep sea and Reef fishing in Zanzibar
"My guide was fantastic and the guys on the boat were great. For that I am giving the 5 stars. Here are the problems. 1. The boat you see in most of the pictures, the nice large motorboat, is not the boat you will have. The boat I had was a small local fishing boat which goes out into the ocean on some fairly large waves and basically makes circles for about 4-5 hours. Catching a fish is possible but from talking to other people, often you don't, so it can amount to circling for hours on the open sea in a small boat. 2. You can get a fishing tour in your hotel for about $120-$140, about a third of what I paid for my tour. Had I been on a larger modern motorboat, that price would have been fair. For a small local fishing boat, not so much. My advice, ask the tour service what kind of boat you will be on and how the fishing has been on the last few trips they have taken, how many fish were caught. Fishing is very seasonal everywhere. And check for other options if you are going to be going out in a small local boat, you can probably find a better deal."..."
