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.

    Picked up on time and went straight to spice tour and see different spices, our guide was very knowledgeable and kind which made us comfortable with the trip.

    After spice tour we went to stone town and walked around the old town it was also amazing further more we tested Swahili food ( lunch ) with our fastest guide who helped us to have nice table coz the place is well packed. After lunch we went to prison island by water taxi and got time to see giant tortoise as well

    Overall, I highly recommend this trip to everyone and I can't thank enough our guide Abu for making this trip nice. Asante Sana

    We were met promptly at the meet up spot. Provided history and details along the tour. We chose a private tour as we prefer to tour without a large group. Our guide was aware of the affect of the heat and humidity. He chose shady spots to explain details on route. Stopped part way for a water break if we needed. He also provided a toilet stop along the way. The tour included our entrance to the slave market museum. We were able to tour at our pace. We were returned to our meet up place. We chose to tour the Freddie Mercury museum on our own after the tour. Tour was just shy of 2 hours. We feel the tour was good value. Guide was knowledgeable. Thank you for a great introduction to Stone Town and some history.

    Thanks to Ali we discovered the beauty and secrets of the spice Farm. It was so interesting to see all the diversity of the spices in their natural form that we use on the kitchen
    Ali is so good, patient and kind. He takes his time to explain and share his knowledge
    I recommend him at 1000% !

    Godfrey and J were friendly and full of interesting information. I had a great 2 days with them and got to see lots of animals. The drive up to the Safari was very cultural but was also quite long for me but its a good way to see more of Tanzania 🇹🇿

    I had an absolutely amazing experience with Captain Barnaby Tours! My trip included visits to Nakupenda and Prison Island, and it couldn't have been better. The guides and driver were exceptional - knowledgeable, friendly, and reliable. The customer support provided was top-notch, ensuring a seamless and worry-free adventure. Safety was a priority throughout the journey. I can't recommend Captain Barnaby Tours enough for an unforgettable 5-star experience!

    My boyfriend and I spent 5 days in Zanzibar and loved it. We went on two days of tours with Zan Archpelago Tours. We booked the first one through TripAdvisor and our guide was Ishmael. He was fantastic - super knowledgeable, personable and fun. We booked the second tour with this operator via WhatsApp because we couldn’t find an existing itinerary that covered everything we wanted, so this tour operator prepared an itinerary based on our specific preferences. Ishmael was so great that we requested him again for our second day. All the activities were so well organized and a lot of fun. Highly recommend Zan Archpelago and specifically Ishmael.

    We had a great experience with Alfa. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Zanzibar and stone town. He communicates well and is very accommodating. Stone town is like a big maze and having a guide is so much better to efficiently learning about it. Highly recommend!

    The walking tour with Hassan was one of the main highlights of our stay in Zanzibar. He is an experienced guide and a nice, intelligente person who told us interesting stories about history and architecture of this amazing city.

    Trip was good and you could see many locations in 1 trip. Maybe if you would prefer to do some more swimming at beaches you should choose some other trip with more time at the islands. Due to weather we ended up rescheduling the trip with Zansibar Crystal Tours & Safaris to another day on our vacation. That also went smoothly.

    Lodi was an amazing guide, knows everybody around the parts of stone town he’ll take you. Sort of the unofficial mayor ;)

    We did the breakfast tour in the blistering heat but the good food and company made it worth while.
