The tour was well-paced, very interesting and enjoyable. Great guide!
Haji was a great guide. Communicated with us prior to the tour, and helped structure the tour based on the portions that interested us the most. Prison island is definitely worth a visit to hear the history of the island and structures, and the turtle sanctuary is enjoyable as well. But the Stone Town walking tour was the highlight. Seeing the local markets and hearing a history of the spices, visiting the slavery museum and quarters; and countless other tidbits of info about the town provided a fantastic overview of the town. Our guide, Haji, was well informed on any questions we asked, and was always keeping an eye out on the small group to make sure everyone was okay. His knowledge of what we saw made the tour a 5-star experience. I highly recommend this excursion.
We started the day with the spice farm tour. Our guide through farm was great. Not only was he very knowledgeable about spices on the property, he also spoke of their medicinal purposes and how to use the spices in cooking etc. From there we went back to Stonetown for the walking tour. The tour took in the main sights and attractions. Our guide Juma was great. Relaxed, informative and engaging.
The tour was great! Communication about the meet-up could be improved (I just had a random person come to me and hand me the phone to talk to the people who’d booked the trip in Dar); but overall I enjoyed the prison island and stone town tours. There are two separate guides, both very kind and friendly!
