Quite disappointed with our three days in Stone Town- we did the Unguja Ukuu, Stone Town City and Prison Island tours. We had the same guide (Moussa) provided by Eco & Culture Tours. His knowledge was acceptable but not outstanding for the city tour but for the other two, really didn't provide any useful information- basically he was there as... More

Its just maybe not what I expected but wasn't no good and probably worth the $15's. You just walk around a display farm and see different spices growing. The guide is text book knowledgable but you don't here much about the spices themselves just the plants. They make you brackets, glasses, ties and necklaces out of banana leaves (I think... More

My family of three (including a young daughter) booked Eco & Culture Tours for four different tours during our recent week in Zanzibar, and were very disappointed. I wish we had picked a better company. We did the spice tour, Jozani forrest tour, the dhow sunset tour, and the the walking tour of Stonetown. We were assigned David as a... More

My husband and me wanted to surprise my parents with a special trip during their vacation in Zanzibar. We had never been in Zanzibar and found Eco Culture Tours online. Especially the great reviews convinced us to inquire about their help with surprising two people who had no idea they would go on a trip during their stay there. The... More

My 4 friends and I just got back from Zanzibar and our 2 full days of wonderful tours with Eco & Culture Tours. With only 2 days in Zanzibar they helped us put together tours to include everything we wanted to cover in our limited time there. They were organized, on time, and knowledgable. Our great guide Musa, was informative,... More

We took a 4days safari to visit Serengeti, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater. We had a great time, with a very reliable company. Communication with Robert was always easy and effective. He arranged everything for us. If this is your first time to Tanzania and Zanzibar, this is the agency you want to find to get the best service for... More

Robert was very accommodating when I requested a day trip which should include a visit to Jozani Forest, a spice tour, a tour of Stone town and a drink at 6 Degrees South in Stone Town. Our guide David was excellent company and managed to answer every question we had during our seven hour day trip. We included a visit... More

We are a couple who came to Zanzibar, wishing to have a great vacation. Eco & Culture tours helped us with that. Amongst the tours we had chosen from this Company was a trip to a sandbank. On this tour, we had some special requests, that they did everything to fulfill. They were always on time, and took good care... More

Especially considering the overall service quality in Tanzania, this company has the best class service. Do not hesitate to contact with them. It could be a bit expensive but worth to use.

I would recommend Eco & Culture Tours 100%, we did the Jambiani Village Tour and it was the most rewarding tour we took during our stay in Sansibar. You get the chance to get in touch with the people living in Jambiani; first we visited the kindergarden that was only built with money from Eco & Culture Tours - an... More
