What people are saying about Zanzibar Archipelago

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!

It was an absolute hit. We had the trip on the second day of our arrival. Our guide took us to the original, non-touristy part and told us a lot about politics, culture, handcraft and life in Zanzibar. It was very exciting. He also showed us the easiest way to get back from the village to the Hotel Sandies and that it is more likely to do shopping where women sell because they use the income for the children. All in all a really recommendable excursion. The sunset trip is also uuuuu absolutely recommended! There is a bongo team on board, which creates a good atmosphere and the ship is unique! I don't want to reveal too much here, take part!

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!

Highly recommended experience! Our driver Ahmad was very kind to us and had an excellent deal with us
