I visited Zanzibar for work in late August 2014, but booked a few extra days as annual leave so that I would also get a chance to explore the island while I was there. As I had very little time, I booked my tours in advance to ensure that I would get to see everything that I wanted to. As... More

We booked a spice farm tour and a trip to the Jozani forest through Eco & Culture tours during our trip to Zanzibar. The spice tour was excellent and our guide was supremely knowledgeable. A driver picked us up from our hotel (even though we were on the far east side of the island) and drove us to the farm.... More

So a friend and I booked a trip with Eco and Cultural Tours. A Safari Trip then ending in Zanzibar for relaxing beach time. We just gave them the dates of when we were available and what we wanted to do and Eco and Cultural Tours organized everything. It was amazing! The safari portion was unreal! We spent 6 days... More

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
