      Bar-hopping in Zanzibar!
      Our group of 8 had the most amazing time with Yuma for the pub crawl. We got to experience Zanzibar night life first hand with an experienced and knowledgeable guide. We tried the different local beers and got to walk through the town center. Our favorite pub was the last one we visited…the CCM Bar. This was an outdoor bar that was filled with almost all locals and had live entertainment. We had so much fun here we didn’t want to leave. Highly recommend this tour! It was a fantastic night!

      Enjoyable evening experiencing great food
      Started with a visit to a rooftop bar overlooking the city. Went to the Market and experienced the food and culture of the area. Our guide was great and answered all our questions regarding the market and food. Highly recommend it.

      Really disappointing
      Really disappointing tour. The guide was 20 mins late. The first stop is a bar for a drink, but there was no reservation for the group so 11 of us encroached on a small group that were already sat there. Drinks were average and just served with standard nuts, nothing particularly interesting or local from Zanzibar. The market was bustling but we were sat behind the shawarma stores in a dark area backing onto the water. We couldn't see any stalls at work not any other customers passing through. The guide disappeared to get the food and bring it back to us, meaning we got no explanation of what we were eating (in the dark) and no chance to see it prepared. As we left we saw a tabled seating area that was well lit and in the middle of th market which would have been far better. This tour was a real let down, no walking, no interaction with those making the food and the guide was no more than a waiter. Waste of money and time!

      Fun night out
      A really fun night out! Our guide met us at the Old Fort - and we set off on our tour. We visited Mercury Bar on the water, a gorgeous rooftop bar and then a party bar overlooking the water. Our guide made sure we all had our yummy drinks, and ensured we all got home safe and sound! We danced the night away!

      Fun and Educational
      My friends and I really enjoyed this tour. The guides gave in depth information about all of the plants and we learned so many interesting things. It was a combination of walking trails and looking at plants and sitting and listening to information and watching the process of cooking with the plants and spices. They made it fun and entertaining. If you are interested in plants and spices, I highly recommend this tour.

      Food tour of Zanzibar
      Fantastic evening food tour with a wonderful kind guide! We walked around Stonetown and learned about the different doors and its history. Walked through the large food market like vegetables and seafood and meat. Learned about the different local spices. Tried some delicious Zanzibar food like orojo (hot and sour soup), Zanzibar Pizza, chicken shawarma, and topped off with ginger sugarcane juice at Fordhoni Gardens. SO many cats in Stonetown and so friendly. Everyone was very welcoming, I would highly recommend this tour! Approximate time: 2h45mins.

      Zanzibar (Stonetown) food market tour experince
      We were meet on time at our hotel by the guide Juma (we think this is the correct spelling) and guided through the streets to enjoy our drink over looking the city from the roof top of a local hotel. We then proceeded to the food market where his knowledge and advise on what to eat or dont eat was fantastic whilst provising a history lesson. He made us feel confortable and safe during the vist and the food provided was fantastic and he introduced us to several vendors. We highly recommend this tour and our guide.

      Strongly recommended
      I love this tour and i would recommend it to everyone. As a solo female traveler my guide Ahmed makes me feel safe. And he is very informative. the compelling story he tells about the abortion of slave trade makes me feel so moved. It is worths it This is my second time joining zanzibar local experience. Both are very great and both guides make me feel safe as a solo female traveler.

      Nice trip
      nice trip, it is a lot better than the tour provided by the hotel. I am glad that I joined this to stonetown the second time after the trip provided by hoteL. Because of the cats at night market though, they are not as friendly as they look when they are interested in your food.

      A must stop for foodies
      I took this evening tour after taking a foodie tour during the day. I was worried that this might just be more of the same, but it was not. The tour started out with a beer at a rooftop bar (I tried Kilamanjaro, not a bad lager) followed by a stroll down to all food booths at Fordhani Gardens. There we had Zanzibar mix, which had already had once that day. However, this rich broth dish with some street food "thrown in" was different in both locations, with the broth being the star. We also had Zanzibar pizza which I had been looking forward to trying, and found yummy, and Shawarma. To finish we had fresh sugar cane juice with lime. My only complaint about this tour was that I was too full to try any of the other yummy dishes I was smelling. Excellent evening with good food and good people watching.

      Must do tour in Zanzibar.
      The whole tour was excellent. I met a couple of other tourists for this tour. We walked through many streets of Zanzibar, and he gave me many insights about the places we were passing by. Also, it was my first day watching the sunset from the rooftop, and it was terrific. He was fun and well-experienced as a tour guide. One of the best parts of the tour was when we went to a night market at Forodhani Park and had all sorts of food. I highly recommend this tour to other tourists who want to experience the nightlife in Zanzibar.

      Skip, just go to Jozani
      This was nothing to write home about to me. Unless you're going to swim in the fresh water cave or with others - I wasn't too impressed. Tour guide was very meh - just walked and explained a bit about the cave. The Rock Restaurant is a tourist trap - not a fan just something cool to look at. I did the Jozani add on and that was pretty decent.

      Breath takingly good. Full of history along with sadness
      Had an amazing experience which was set by my host who was extremely knowledgeable, sincere and warm. Wanted me to feel the experience and the history of the slave trade out of east Africa.

      Best evening
      My tour made for a wonderful and lovely evening. I enjoyed every moment about it. The Swahili House and the nighttime market were great. My guide was also wonderful.

      Excellent and delicious evening
      We had an enjoyable and delicious evening. Our guide picked us up, on time, at our hotel. We strolled through the streets and local markets of Stone Town with excellent explanations of the history, sites and local culture. We enjoyed a lovely sunset drink at the Swahili House. When we arrived at the Forodhani Night Food market our guide was able to explain the different street food options and what was safe to eat. We had fun, insightful conversations with the various vendors. The food was excellent. Highly recommend this tour.
