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

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.

On my 2nd visit to Zanzibar I had heard that visiting The Jozani forest was a must do. I contacted Exo & Culture tours who was indeed responsive, which inspired confidence. However, the date of the tour, apart form the driver being on time, it was a real disappointment. I was only picked up at 10am, the drive took one... More

I felt veryy sorry for the people living there because life is difficult. To see what they are using for publick transport. But this is really something you must see, does not help me telling you. The people are very thankfull and honest and it is save to walk the streets in a group.
