We were picked up at our...

We were picked up at our hotel at 8h. 20 minutes later the van stopped. The driver told us to wait, and after 10 minutes another van came and we had to change the vehicles. The new van went in the opposite direction, back to our hotel. They stopped at one point and waited. Mike, our guide, told us that he had to collect money from another partner. But after waiting 5 minutes the van moved again. The partner had already left with other customers, so we did the trip in the opposite direction for nothing. After that we went to another hotel to pick up another couple, when we had been told that we were alone. By this time, the clock was showing 9.15h, therefore, more than one hour lost, travelling trough zanzibar with no direction. But every time we asked tbe guide, Mike, told us that we were going to be happy. We stayed in nakupenda for a long time. No snorkel equipment was provided. The food lasted too much, we had to eat quickly because the island was disappearing because of the high tidy!! Other companies were already packing to go when we started to eat. Moreover, food was cold... We arrived to prison island and the organisation was a completely disaster. You have ten minutes to visit the tortoises! You have 5 minutes to visit the prison! In the meanwhile, the guide was seating watching something in his phone. As he did not came with us, the people of the group scattered trough the island and when we had to leave, he had to go to search for the people missing, so we waited like 20 minutes, 20 minutes less to visit stone town, as the guide said... If in prison island he explained nothing, in stone town he explained less. We saw, literally: the fortress, one roof top view in a hotel and the facade of freddy mercury's house. Of course in every place we had 5 minutes to make photos and no historical explanation was provided. The phone and resting on a chair were more important for mike. He tried to do one thing pretty well: sell us a trip to a species farm. Although we did not accepted, he insisted and insisted... For that purpose he works very hard... We had to hire another tour for today to visit stone town as it deserves... To sum up, i will not recommend this tour, i will not recommend your agency, and, above all, I woul not recommend Mike 😠

Description is very inaccurate & overpriced. Would not recommend booking! We normally don’t post negative reviews, but I’m hoping this will help guide someone like me that relied on reviews to help aide in finding the right tour in Zanzibar. We booked a different 6 hour tour for half the price and it was longer than this tour. We were trying to find something that encompassed Prison Island & snorkeling. When we were picked up at our hotel at 9am (not the 7:30am the description says) we walked to the meet up point. We were given no instructions, just told to sit on a bench. We waited for over an hour before we left! We maybe got in the water for 30 minutes total to snorkel, when this tour makes it seem like that is a priority. The description says approx 10 hours. Not even close. Our tour was 5 hours and then an hour of waiting around for it to even start. We were picked up at 9:00am, not 7:30am like in the description, and didn’t get on the boat until 10am and still waited. We chose a tour that was an all day thing and paid for that difference, but certainly didn’t receive it. Might as well have saved the money and done a half day tour. Not even sure what the 3-in-1 means considering this tour only has 2 stops - Prison Island & Vanishing Island, so even the name is misleading. Once we got to Prison Island, we were told we had 20 minutes with the tortoises and then 10 minutes seeing the Prison portion of the island. There was minimal history given at the island and whatever was explained was rushed through so the guide could go back to sitting on his phone and then proceeded to ask us where the rest of our group was, which were not with our party. Then we got to Vanishing Island, which is gorgeous and I highly recommend, we were told 10 minutes until food. We waited around for 1.5 hours for food. We brought our own snorkel gear, which is lucky considering they did not provide snorkeling equipment or instructions like in the description. We would have gone in the water and snorkeled while waiting for our food, but kept getting lied to that we only had 10 minutes until food, which would turn into 30 minutes until we got the run around that it was 10 more minutes. Again, the guy only sat on his phone and paid no mind to how the guests were doing. The expression here is “slowly, slowly” and we do not mind, but the inconsideration of peoples times is unacceptable considering it was VERY clear we were there to snorkel and we kept getting told food was almost ready. The food was really good and caught fresh! There was water provided, but absolutely no white wine listed in description. Adding to the disorganization, they emailed us after the tour about a pickup location for a tour that already happened.

Amazing Day In Zanzibar

Professional and wonderful day with Abraham our guide. He went above and beyond to make sure he explained everything and made the stops that I requested along the way. I would use this company again in the near future. JUst a few things need to be worked on. Tip: make sure your guides follow whats supposed to be included in itinerary, we didnt get wine or zani sandwich, this was listed to be included. Seafood didnt taste fresh. Other than that guide and driver did a excellent job. Thanks

I had an awesome time. The guide picked me up at the exact time he said he would. after the short wait for the group to gather we left for the islands. Both islands were amazing and the guides made sure we had everything we needed and that we were enjoying out trip. Even fed the giants tortoises. The lunch and fruits were absolutely superb and so tasty. The trip around Stone Town was wonderful too. My guide knew a lot of history and facts so I left with a lot more knowledge that what I came with

C'était très beau ! Je vous recommande d'y aller le matin pour avoir plus de temps sur nakupenda car elle se fait recouvrir par la mer après, malheureusement je n'ai que des vidéos mais c'est a couper le souffle seul bémol est que le taxi avait 1h de retard

Tout d’abord nous avons attendu 1h devant l’hôtel car nous avons eu deux guides qui nous attendaient et qui n’arrivaient pas à joindre l’agence. Ensuite nous avons appris que l’île vanishing n’existait pas et donc nous n’avons pas eu « la détente sur la magnifique plage et profitez des eaux claires ». De plus concernant la snorkeling + la plonge en apnée.. pas d’accompagnement du guide, matériel plus qu’usagées (pas de visibilité dans l’eau) et la plongée en apnée non existante. Pour le repas, nous avons du changer de restaurant alors que nous étions installés en terrasse car apparemment trop cher… Nous n’avons pas eu comme prévu de homard ni de vin blanc (trop cher). Pour « zanzi club sandwich » nous n’en avons pas vu la couleur. Nous sommes très déçu de cette activité. Cordialement.
