Hello Dear, We are a couple staying three nights at Baraza Resort in Zanzibar and have one day free. As we are unlikely to return to Tanzania in next few years hence tempted to visit Dar Es SAlem. We are fine to take an early morning flight from Zanzibar to Dar Es Salm and take late evening flight back to Zanzibar on 20th July 2017. We are going to Masai Mara for 3 nights hence not interested in wildlife but wish to do a private city tour of Dar Es Salem with private guide airport to airport. Kindly suggest if t is feasible and advise detailed ity. Thanks.
