Great day out of Dar
Jan 2020
It was a great tour, so informative and even a bit off the beaten track. As we learned from our guide, though overshadowed by Stonetown in Zanzibar, Bagamoyo every bit as integral to the history of the country from 12th century to slave trade to colonialism - even the first world war -- and of course decolonisation. Bagamoyo has all the features found in Zanzibar except the tourists so if you want to see a relatively untrammeled but tourist friendly site, this is the one. Plus on the way you will enjoy local food, insights into cultural and hospitality courtesy of an excellent and personable guide.I highly recommend this tour!

The Touching History of Bagamoyo Town
Oct 2019
The history of Bagamoyo is very educative and heart touching, it was after our meeting that we had a day to visit this somehow forgotten historical town in Tanzania, I say forgotten because our guide Sadick said it was the first harbor to be built and then late shifted to Dar es Salaam which has prosper economically leaving Bagamoyo in almost the same old infrastructure style. Dove Adventure was recommended from the hotel we stayed, Holiday inn Hotel and appeared to be very honest, reliable, very good air conditioned cars for tours, fast responding with very knowledgeable guides both for Bagamoyo and Dar es Salaam City, best price and I recommend it to other travellers.

Great tour for a last minute traveller
Sep 2019
The tour company very kindly accommodated me for a tour of Bagamoyo on very short notice. Godfrey used the drive from Dar to share with me some of the background not only of Bagamoyo but the history of Tanzania as a whole. The guide who joined us once we arrived was clearly very knowledgable about the area and patiently answered what questions I had - although he gave such thorough explanations I rarely had any! It was a great way to end my trip to Tanzania.
