Discovering Zanzibar
Sep 2021 • Solo
It was an existing scarring cause was my first time to experience the boat trip while it was absolutely "hakuna matata" my guide was Mady very knowledgeable fun tourguide I indeed appreciate. I got a greater chance feeding Giant tortoises at prison Island then heeding to Nakupenda sandbank what a beautiful spot with clear water I loved the fresh seafood and tropical fruits.
It's surely recommended.

Epic beaches views
Mar 2020 • Solo
Ahmed guided me on a epic afternoon to Prison Island where I got to pet and feed the turtles. He then guided me through the rest of the island where the prisoners were to be held, hence the name Prison Island, but it actually never ended up holding any prisoners. The highlight of the tour was Nakupenda Beach. The views from the sandbank were something out of a fairytale. Ahmed also seems to have an eye for photography as he was able take some excellent photographs for me at Prison Island and on the beach. This tour is definitely one of the best tours I embarked on at Zanzibar and would recommend it to anyone travel here, you’ll enjoy your time with a laid back, down to earth guide like Ahmed.

Glad We Did It But Not Spectacular
It was ok. The guides are nice, it's interesting to see the spices and plants fresh. Lunch is not luxury but fine.
