I contacted Dove Adventure with very short notice on the day that I had a 10 hour layover in Dar es Salaam and my original city tour operator cancelled the morning of. They were extremely accommodating and were able to set me up on a city tour that same day. I was transiting from Zanzibar back home and had a 10 hour layover in Dar that I wanted to take advantage of and explore the city. They picked me up in an air conditioned van from the airport, and took me around the city to explore until it was time for my flight home. They greeted me with water and a soda and a great list of things to do to take in the local culture in what little time I had. We went to the fish market as well as the national and village museums and then to a local market and dinner. Anna was great and knowledgeable, and made sure that I was always having a good time and answered any questions I had. Very professional, I highly recommend!

The tour was good. Booking with Annie was the best thing. She addressed all my queries promptly. She even gave assistance to repack and re-weigh my luggage as I had to adjust it to fly in the domestic airlines. Even after the trip, she even enquired about my Kilimanjaro trip which shows the caring attitude to their customers.

My guide was Godfrey and he shared his knowledge of Tanzanian History and culture with me. That was good. Though I had limited time, I got to know an idea about the city.

Since there was limited time, I could have spent less time for lunch - as there was a lot of waiting period. May be , this was something the guide could have suggested.

This is a great tour especially for first time visitors to Dar es Salaam. Our guide Godfrey and the driver Harun were knowledgeable about the city's history, very friendly and even gave us some good recommendations for the rest of our stay. Would recommend.

A must for first time visitors. My tour guide Godfrey was awesome as he was passionate sharing the history of many historical landmarks throughout the city. My personal favorites were the museums, the Slipway Shopping Center, and the plethora of knowledge shared by Godfrey.

Shurkuru, and Annastancia went above and beyond to make my excursion pleasant and fulfilling. They were well informed, and educated on Tanzanian's history... They spoke to vendors on my behalf when necessary, and attempted to teach me Swahili. I took up more of their time than was alloted, and they were so graceful as to not complain...I will recommend them to all my friends in the USA. Thank you both.

I have used Dove Adventure twice since moving to Tanzania - once for a very interesting and well run Dar es Salaam city tour (July 2020), as well as for a 1 week safari with one of their partner companies (November 2020).

The service has been excellent and I can highly recommend them for many travel needs within Tanzania!

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!
