About
Zanzibar is also called the “Spice Island”, besides the beautiful beaches and parks, it offers a unique tour of various types of aromatic spices, also known as “The Spice Tour”. Even though these Zanzibar spices like Cloves, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Cardamon are commonly used and we all know their taste, hardly anyone would be able to identify them in wild nature. This tour is a unique highlight and absolute must if you want to learn more about the origin of the spices and the traditional food of Zanzibar.

My wife and I visited Zanzibar after our safari but had been in touch with Lukman ahead of time. One day we visited Mnemba Atoll and went snorkeling for the first time. We had a great time! On our second day, we did the spice tour, cooking class (our highlight which I highly recommend), and the Stonetown walking tour. Lukman and team were responsive and catered to our needs, especially in arranging travel from One part of the island to another. Definitely recommend considering any Zanzibar tours with Splash.

We had a good day out with Lukman. They picked us up from our hotel at Pongwe on the other side of the island for minimal extra cost. The spice tour was great, really interesting to see and smell all the spice plants. The cooking class food was delicious, it took place very authentically outside under a canopy, and we made the food sitting on a large floor matt. However there were long periods where we were sitting around waiting for the food to cook, and the local guide and chef (not Lukman) did not really offer much information or chat to us during these times. Not like other cooking classes we have been to. However then Lukman took us on a free mini tour of Stonetown (which we had not arranged for) before he drove us back to Pongwe. Overall a good day out but the cooking class bit could be improved.

We did 3 tours with Splash Tours which was totally unplanned. We just happened to walk past their office which was close to our hotel in Stone Town. We did the spice tour with a cooking class, tour of stone town & prison island. Our guide Hasan took us on the spice tour with cooking class & a tour of stone town. He was very friendly, helpful and informative. The cooking class was loads of fun and the food made was delicious. The prison island tour with Lukmaan was great and seeing the giant tortoises was amazing. The snorkeling around prison island was also great fun. Overall wonderful experience with lovely people. I would highly recommend them to anyone traveling to Zanzibar
