A fun morning out with Khamis (Thursday) and Juma (Friday) it was fun knowing that. Highly recommended outing... But not with just any old guide. These guys are hilarious and Khamis knows all his fruits in Afrikaans! He even knows what "fokken duur" means (you're welcome for the free information my friend ). You'll also notice that I'm in most of the pictures because Juma is a great photographer. Handed him my phone and had the opportunity to really enjoy myself instead of taking pictures! I had a 4year old randomly latch on to me... Just confirmation that I am in the right line of work!! I was allowed to participate and try out whatever I wanted... Also didn't follow instructions and cut myself on the coconut cutter. Pavarotti Batman grabbed us some coconut from a tree top while performing (wow, the voice ) All I can say is, fresh is better. Literally every smell and flavour I experienced was ou
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 day tour is highly recommended for those who want to know more about the history and culture of Zanzibar. Both the Spice Plantation and the Stone Town guide are really experienced and knowledgeable. Our chauffeur, who took us from the hotel to the first part and then to the second part, was very punctual and drove us around safely.
The organization was great, both our driver and guide are very friendly. We had a great experience with the local farmer and get insights to the local kitchen as well as the agricultural environments. Recommend!
Again an awesome trip. The cooking class was very good and the lunch afterwards was great. The guide was very well educated and gave as great info and explanations.
