* A traveler said: "Khamis was excellent! He was very knowledgeable and super friendly. My son got boat sick and stayed in the car with the driver for 2 hours while we're in Stone Town. He was supposed to bring us to all the shops. I told him I didn't want to stop in shops because I didn't want my son to wait that long. He told them not to bother us. We're very happy with the tour."

* A traveler said: "Great snorkeling tour. We were picked up at our hotel on time and our guide Mohamed told us all about Zanzibar as we made our way through the small villages in-route to the location of the boat. The van driver was professional and friendly unfortunately I have forgotten his name and had some excellent recorded music playing. The boat was nice and well kept and the captain took really good care of us and pointed out many interesting things underwater. He also cut up and provided us with fresh fruit in-between snorkeling locations. All 3 of the guys were great. When you book request Mohamed and get his crew. You won't be disappointed!!"

* A traveler said: "I really recommend this full day trip out on the sea! We had a great guide called Juma and he was really very serviceminded, attentive and nice. First we went on a boattrip to Prison Island and we saw the great turtles and Juma guided us around the island. We then continued to Nakupenda Beach and snorkled there for a couple of hours. Juma and other guides prepared fresh fruits, water and seafood lunch for us with grilled shrimps, squid, octopus, lobster and langoustine together with french fries. It started to rain hard when we were about to have lunch and Juma and all the guides tried their hardest to make it comfortable for us even though it rained. We ended up having lunch in the boat with cover so we enjoyed the lunch very much. Soon, the rain ended and we could enjoy one more snorkling in the beautiful sea before we went back to Zanzibar Island. A great tour that includes everything!"
