We went to Zanzibar for our honeymoon trip while combining it with New Year's Eve 2019. We arrived there on December 27, 2018. Unfortunately our hotel Neptune Pwani Beach Resort and Spa was not what we expected and in general our accommodation experience was one of the worst we ever had mostly due to the poor room amenities and set up and the unprofessional service of the personnel. We had booked the accommodation with another safari tour operator from Tanzania. The reason we are referring to that is to make even stronger the point that although we were not happy with our hotel and we could not sleep well, we overall had an amazing experience in Zanzibar. We owe this to Zanziplanet Tours and to Mussa Hassan personally. Mussa Hassan is THE man in Zanzibar. He is extremely professional, with great manners, very helpful, discreet, very friendly and very well connected to all Zanzibar hotels and resorts managers, restaurants managers, local store owners etc. We felt that he is very well respected to the local tourist community. As soon as we arrived to Zanzibar airport after a long stop-over flight from Greece, Mussa welcomed us very warmly. This is exactly what we needed at that time. He dropped us at our hotel and the day after our adventure with him began. He and a young professional driver were picking us up everyday at the time we wanted and they showed us all the main sight-seeing locations of Zanzibar but from a local perspective. We don't like touristic attractions that much and Mussa got it from the beginning. The interesting thing is that from the first day, we didn't feel that we were accompanied by a tourist guide/butler but we are on vacation with a friend of ours. And that's merely the result of Mussa's personality. We kept discussing with him about local trends, Zanzibar history, social, economic and political situation of the island and of Tanzania in total. He was very well informed about everything while he was an excellent listener as well. Equally important, he was extremely adaptable to any last minute changes we requested like change plans for NYE dinner. As we didn't like at all the resort we were staying at, we decided to spend our NYE to Park Hyatt Zanzibar in Stone Town. We had to make a reservation on a really busy day. We went there and he arranged everything for us. He drove us to amazing beach locations like Nungwi, great resorts for dinner like Zalu, to Stone Town and street markets to experience the local lifestyle. He was responsible for all our restaurant reservations and trasports back and forth. He took care of any wish and need that we were coming up with daily. We are deeply grateful for meeting Mussa in Zanzibar. He literally made our day! We would recommend him anytime and we are happy to provide any additional information if needed. Great professionals should be rewarded for their excellency. Maria - Apostolos Greece

We are an older couple with a teenage daughter that has traveled all over the world. We stayed at the Airport Planet Lodge, Kilimanjaro, and booked the Ultimate Safari 04 in 01 Tour around Mt. Kilimanjaro via helicopter. It was a 1 hr drive from the Hotel to the Kilimanjaro Golf Estate where the tour leaves from. It was an expensive tour and a bit risky for August because of any clouds around the mountain. However after a cloudy sunrise, we were lucky and had close-up beautiful views of the mountain and surrounding countryside. (We took the morning flight recommended to avoid cloud cover) Saw giraffes, buffalo and zebras from the air and in the van on the way back to the hotel more zebras. Note the Helicopter fits only 4 people including the pilot. The ride was extremely smooth and felt like we were gliding on air. Take along some warm clothes; it gets a bit cool during the flight. Overall the experience is well worth the expense, especially if you are on a tight timeline.
