We flew from Zanzibar to Arusha with Coastal aviation (very good) and our safari guide Ibrahim was waiting for us. We went to Lake Manyara on the first day and... More

We were very happy with service provided on tailored tours. Very professional and reliable service from the office and the tour guide. The tour guide was speaking very good English and he was able to share a lot of information about day to day life on the island. On the top of that he graduated in history hence was very... More

My family and I booked 'local fishing' and wasted like 200 USD. It was supposed to be on dhow, but the boat ended up being a regular boat that takes people to prison island and back with Jambo written on the roof, or something like that. The 'local fishing equipment' consisted of a few tied together hand-lines and one borrowed... More

Overall we were pleased with the service provided by Eco & Culture Tours. They were really responsive when we needed it and helpful in planning our excursions.The only reason I marked them down a bit was because of our experience with the cultural tour of Stone Town during the first part of our trip. The guide we had, while informative,... More

We booked the Safari Blue trip via this tour operator. The pick up from the hotel was done by Ali, who took great care of us until the boat left. He apologized for his English which is indeed very good- so he explained a lot on the way and during our waiting time. We were fortunate that we were only... More

Back in Zanzibar this November, I decided to give them another chance and qrote an e-mail. Within 10 minutes I received a detailed response (from Rashid) and any questions I had were swiftly and...

We did the trip to Prison Island near Zanzibar and were really disappointed. For the two of us they charged $70. David picked us up at the hostel. He is a nice guy with sufficient English skills. On the dhow ride to the island he told us a bit about the island's history, but we learned nothing that we hadn't... More

We booked four tours with Eco and Culture in advance, namely: Sunset Dhow Cruise, Prison Island, Stonetown Tour and the Spice Farm Tour. Amhed was our tour guide for all these tours, he was extremely knowledgeable on every tour, prompt, and went out of his way to make sure we saw and did everything we wanted to do. He even... More
