I liked it very much. Many thanks to the organizers for picking me up from the hotel. An interesting adventure - moving on a local ferry to another part of the city. There we visited the fish market with local flair, the churches, which were especially decorated for Christmas, even got to the Christmas service. I was impressed by the museum and, of course, the ethnic village with a performance in which I myself had a chance to participate. Communication with the guide and his story was a special pleasure and left a wonderful impression of this day spent in Dar es Salaam.

Booked at the last minute during my 7 days in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Glad I selected Dove Adventure Tanzania for the City Tour. I truly had a great experience. The tour consisted of me and the guide, Mr. Lasway. Mr. Lasway was knowledgeable about the history of the areas visited, and made the experience to the Village Museum memorable and exciting. Throughout the tour he was very courteous and insightful. If I ever come back to Tanzania, I’d book again with Dove Adventure Tanzania!

Amazing day around the city. The guide and driver are very nice and helpful. At my request, they brought me to the exchange office, I also really wanted to find a magnet with Dar es Salam, they were very kind and brought me to the shops where I could find it. At the end of the day, I still managed to find it, because such a magnet is very rare. Driven by air-conditioned car, cold drinks and snacks included. Useful information during the excursion. They picked me up at my hotel, although the collection points were indicated when booking, and she was not included in that zone. Visited the National Museum and the Village Museum. If you have any travel preferences, they will meet you halfway. Thank you very much, you are very cute!
