I am not one who usually writes reviews but the day I spent with Joe deserves to be written about!

First of all, yes the tours were really informative and fun (I did the Harare and village tour), but most importantly meeting with Joe felt like discovering a long-lost brother. We exchanged and discussed a lot about Zimbabwe and where I come from, spoke about culture differences, societal issues, friends, family, and so much more!

It truly felt like I knew him for a long time, and this really created the best experience I could have ever asked for.

Among other things, I got to take great pictures all along the city without feeling insecure for my huge pro-grade camera, ask as many questions as came to my mind about the local culture, climb onto a local municipal bus with super loud afrobeats (because I felt like it!), trade with a merchant on the road, take tons of pictures of locals asking for their picture to be taken, climb into a fun taxi in which I felt totally safe, wander around the most wonderful village with the sweetest people, meet with Joe’s mother who cooked the best meal in 5 seconds and who made me feel like I belonged there and like I was her own daughter, climb on top of a mountain to discover an old tribe settlement with an incredible view, walk alongside gospel churches singing and creating a peaceful/lively/spiritual atmosphere, get back to see Joe’s mum and share the most intimate family moment…

I will never forget them and how this day turned out. Life-changing is just too small of a word to describe what I felt and what I lived. I did not just meet new friends but I feel to honoured and privileged to say that I made myself a new family in Zim! I’ll never thank them enough for their hospitality, for all the discussions, and all the laughter! I wish them the very very very best and hope to be able to come back soon to see them again!!

Just go, you will not regret it!

I contacted Adventure Horizons for a walking tour and ended up booking in different tours around the Harare area, and even further north into Domboshawa and Tengenenge!

In the process I got to meet Joe, Sibo and June, who were all deeply hospitable. I have to say that having them as guides was a major highlight of my trip.

I would recommend them to anybody looking for an authentic experience :)

Joe was a fantastic walking guide. Very friendly and passionate he offered us a complete tour of Harare’s center. He provided us with his knowledge and insight of the social and historical context and showed us some of the unsuspected gems of the city.
We highly recommend the Free tour!!

I contacted Sibs for the Free walk tour and the village visit as well.
Since I had a short time there, she customized it for me, so I could have the whole experience according to the time I had available.
She showed me the city, including some hidden gems, taught me how to eat and even some words in their language.
The next day, we went to a village a drive away from town. There I was enchanted by the history, the people we met along the way, including her cousin, a young man very kind, intelligent, and excellent photographer.
Sibs is young, but with so much Life experience, knowledge, and shine energy, I feel like she was a long-time friend.
Her excellent driving skills, the rugged roads in the village, and the desire to explore made these two days very special for me.
I feel like I Would not Have these Life experiences if It Weren't for Sibo.
I recommend it; next time I'm there, I will try some of the other tours.

Had a very interesting tour of the city with Lynett. It was just the two of us so I could ask any questions and Lynett had very interesting answers and views on the city. You'll learn a lot about culture, history, organization of the city and it's a must if you want to know more about the country and the city of Harare. It's a very good way to discover the city.
I had a great time with her, she's very friendly and took me to food market to discover specialties !

My guides were Joe and Sib, excellent guides and friendly people. Both gave us a lot of information of every building, street, garden, and market of the city. The tour was very personalized and the length of it depended on if we wanted to see something else, or buy some stuff in the markets.
No way I could known by myself walking alone in the city all the things I´ve learned from them. Totally reccomended!

My husband and I really enjoyed the walking tour. Lynette was professional and friendly. Her tour was well organized and she shared with us the country’s history, current events, and social issues. We went on 3 different tours while in Zimbabwe and Lynette was the best guide out of all of them. The tour was a great introduction to the country. We definitely recommend this tour!

It was amazing trip, super colorful and much more interesting and fun that i expected.

I made a custom tour for 3 days, and i enjoyed to explore culture in Zimbabwe! I would especially recommend township areas like Mbare, since its the most real part of Zimbabwe.

Lynette is a wonderful guide. I am a Zimbabwean raised in Harare and the tour felt like a treasure hunt. Discovering things about the city that I didn't know about was thrilling. Lynette makes the tour special, she is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this to Zimbabweans and visitors.
