Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you are looking for a professional tour guide or airport/hotel transfers in Zanzibar then Khalifa is the ideal! He is reliable, always on time and will make sure your journey is safe and comfortable. I visited Zanzibar in 2018 and now again, and Khalifa made both my trips memorable. This time around we did a Stone Town tour, Mpemba Island snorkeling and airport/hotel transfers with Khalifa. Excellent - you won't be disappointed!

We visited Zanzibar for the trip of a lifetime so it was a must that everything be perfect! I found Khalifa on Facebook and reached out about a month before the trip! I had already knew what I wanted to do and Khalifa accommodated. What I didn’t expect was the level of service and care Khalifa and his team provided! It was top notch all the way from the minute he picked me up at the ferry I knew we were in good hands! Khalifa was extremely knowledgeable, funny, welcoming and overall just fun to be around! He took care of us like we were royalty! He totally delivered and exceeded all expectations. The highlight of our trip was khalifa opening up his home to us and we experienced a cooking class with his family and had the most delicious meal. I can taste it as I type. Khalifa made our trip seamless, he was always prompt and did everything he said he would do and his price was fair! I will be utilizing his services upon my return. Do not hesitate to book with him, you will not regret!

Khalifa and his team showed us an amazing time during our visit to Zanzibar. The accomadations, food and tours were the perfect wind down to our magical East African experience. The entire trip was engaging especially for our two small boys 5 yo and 2 yo whose highlight was swimming with the turtles and dolphins. If you want to learn and see the best of Zanzibar Khalifa Zanzibar is the way to do it.

Khalifa is the best in the Zanzibar period! From the moment I arrived he made me feel safe and cared for which is extremely important as a solo female traveler.

Khalifa took care of literally everything I needed and more. He was able to anticipate my needs before I could and helped me arrange everything I wanted to do while in the island and even recommended a guide for my visit Dar es Salaam.

In my 3 week visit Khalifa arranged wonderful tours including a spice tour, safari blue, an incredible cooking class with his wife, prison island tour, visit to a local school to donate supplies, took me shopping and all transportation between stone town and Nungwi. He’s extremely punctual and is always where he says he will be when he says he will be.

I also LOVED the fact that Khalifa prioritizes supporting local vendors in his community and is even training new graduates on the tourism business. Khalifa has an extremely kind and giving heart and I am so grateful I choose him to guide me in this unforgettable trip. Thank you for everything Khalifa! Sending blessing to you always ✨

Wow, what an experience! First, big thanks to Khalifa and team for the great time spent over the four days in Zanzibar. My group used the services of Cool of Africa from airport pickup to drop-off, from organized tours to group transport to our requested destination. We were made comfortable and received a great experience.

We found them very affordable as they catered to our specific needs. Learned a lot about the country, island, people and culture and gained an appreciation for local curated experiences!

As professional as the team was - it still felt like visiting family! Thanks for the laughs and comradery! You all are just amazing!

I highly recommend Cool of Africa Tours. Visiting Tanzania was an amazing experience. Cool of Africa Tours has professional, friendly, and knowledgeable tour guides and personal drivers. We booked a walking tour in Stone Town Zanzibar including the slave market. The service was exceptional. Our tour guide Khalifah did a get job of making us feel comfortable while still remaining professional. The tour was fun as well as informative. Based off of our interaction during the Stone Town walking tour, we decided to utilize Cool of Africa Tours for the duration of our time in Zanzibar.

My friend and I visited Zanzibar recently, for my birthday. Khalifa was referred to us by another tour guide, and he was just nothing short of amazing! He is very knowledgeable about his country, personable, and fun. We had the best time with him on the Stone Town tour. He was also able to set us up with very trustworthy individuals in Nungwi Beach area and in Kilimanjaro. He made our visit very memorable, and It would be my pleasure to recommend him to anyone who plans to visit Tanzania.

My family had a wonderful time with Khalifa from airport pick up, to Stonetown tour, to hotel drop off and back to airport drop off, he ensured we got where we wanted to go. He arranged tours and quickly responded to requests. He is passionate about his country, his family, and his business.
