Eco & Culture Tours and guide Mussa Shaaban made my short visit to Stone Town Zanzibar a memorable experience. Mussa not only showed me the "must see sights" - House of Wonders, Sultans Palace, but also the local fish and meat market. His knowledge and explanation of Zanzibar's past, present and future helped me better understand this island's unique culture... More

WOW!!! The best experience, and an absolute must when coming to Zanzibar. With Eco and Culture tours we were taken to a beautiful eco friendly, deserted island where we spent the day swimming and snorkelling while a lunch was prepared for us. Snacks were cut up fruit and coconut strips. We went cave exploring and our knowledgeable guide and all... More

We loved the experience we had with Eco&Culture Tours Zanzibar, and we definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in a truly paradise escape that feels a bit more authentic and real than the big luxury resorts or other organized trips. We decided to do the very special day boat trip in Unguja Ukuu village, far off the tourists tracks;... More

We did two tours with this company over a weekend in Zanzibar. Both tours were great. First we did the combination of the Spice Tour and City Tour. Our guide Mussa was great and very accommodating, as well as knowledgeable. We had an issue with our hotel room, while we were out having lunch at the Spice Tour and had... More

I originally booked this tour while still in Canada, it was intended to be a half day tour, however, while on a cruise ship we met another couple who wanted to join us, Robert at Eco & Culture tours accommodated us and dropped the price from $30 to $20 USD per person. We were met at the port gates at... More

We booked all our transfers and tours through Robert at Eco& Culture Tours. We went on three tours - Stone Town, Prison Island and Jozani Forest and were well pleased with the service we had on these and our transfers. All our guides and drivers were excellent, especially Musa and Alli. Musa was exceptionally knowledgeable and we learned a lot... More

Imagine topping your Zanzibar holiday with a safari before heading home from Dar. Light aircraft offer to fly you directly from Znz to airstrips in the game parks, and further to Dar (or the other way around) . But not with your heavy dive bag, as the small Cessnas operated by Coastal air limit your luggage to 15 kg. No... More

My husband and I were staying at one of the resorts on the East Coast in Dec 2014, and decided to venture into Stone Town for a half day. We booked Eco & Culture Tours, hoping it would be an informative tour, and a unique way of learning more about the history and culture of Zanzibar. What a disappointment! We... More

We booked a spice farm tour at Eco & Culture Tours and it was above expectation! It was a private tour with guide Musa. He really knew everything about the trees, fruits and spices, and as we knew nothing we felt quite stupid but learned a lot.. ;) After the tour we had lunch at a local home in a... More
