* A traveler said: "From the moment I was picked up from the airport, I was treated with the utmost hospitality and kindness. After allowing me to drop off my luggage at my hotel, Sendekwa went above and beyond, even taking me to AND helping me set up an appointment and Mrembo Spa, and then showing me to an ATM. My driver Suleyman, was probably one of my favorite parts of Zanzibar. Super sweet, always punctual, respectful, and communicative, I am honestly so glad it was him that helped me get around Zanzibar for the entirety of my stay. He went out of his way for me too many times to detail. The car was always clean and smelled like lemongrass that is native on the archipelago. I would highly, highly recommend this company to anyone visiting Zanzibar."

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!"

* A traveler said: "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!"
