Precise, no-fuzz, comfortable car service you can book online that will take you where you need to go.

For some reason they charge in Euros, so it is not as cheap as you might first expect (if you assume that the price is in dollars - like everything else on the Island). Still an Ok price though, all things considered.

Most chauffeurs were friendly and good drivers. However, a company like this (if they want to put safety first), should not allow their cars to have those stereosystems with LCD screens in the centre console. Driving and watching music videos does not mix well

The taxi arrived on time and the car was comfortable and had air conditioning which was good for a long journey. The booking process was really easy using the online service. It was the cheapest taxi I found going from Stone Town to Kendwa, I will be using them for the rest of my stay in Zanzibar, I would highly recommend them to anyone.

In a group of 8, we travelled to Zanzibar over Dec '21-Jan '22. Zanzibus offered us a 12-seater bus to use so that our whole group + luggage could travel together between locations on the island.
The driver Simai was friendly and helpful. He assisted when we needed to go to a bureau de change and the covid testing centre, despite it being off the routes we had initially booked for (though we definitely compensated for the additional driving). Zanzibus also picked us up from different hotels in the same area, at no extra cost.
I would highly recommend their services. They are polite and efficient!

I would just suggest that one asks for their WhatsApp contact info, as I found it much easier to communicate with them there than via email or the Facebook Messenger.

I used Zanzibus for a series of trips betwen Stone Town and the northern town of Nungwi. Their service was stellar, and after a bit of confusion with one particular trip, the manager was immediately apologetic and took my fare down. I was impressed by the quick and sincere response. I think that's what I like about Zanzibus' service. It's truly friendly and humane, and the quality is great. Special shoutout to my two-time driver Suleiman who even checked that I got back safely to my home country. :-)

We booked several trips with their taxis. They offer nice cars, with air con. Be sure to receive email notification about your secured booking, or else contact them - they respond pretty fast to massages.

First, taxi was late for 10 minutes, then we contacted Zanzibus via Messanger and told us there was a mix up and that they will send another driver. So 30 minutes later than scheduled our taxi arrived. Lucikly, we still had time to catch our flight. But the upside is they were responding fast.

I booked the Zanzibus online before arriving to Zanzibar and I am thrilled with the experience. The driver got there in time, the car was very clean, spacious, with AC, and the trip itself was excellent. The driver was very friendly and professional. I recommend the service and the price is fair. They do not currently do the Shared Bus, but the standard is fair also. Enjoy your trip!

I was worried with the lack of reviews online, but I can say now that the service is perfect and you can trust in this company. We took a transfer from Airport to Paje and the from Paje to the Airport. The driver was waiting for us at the Airport with our names and in the return transfer arrived right on time. The van is modern and very confartable. They are flexible in the payment and accept Shilling, Dolar or Euro.

We booked Zanzibus at home, before we traveled. Driver was on time and found us immediately in the airport. Good english, drove carefully, was very friendly and explained everything about the Island. Recommend the service 100%.

We booked a taxi with The Zanzibus to take us from the airport to Nungwi. Everything went great, the driver met us in the arrivals hall with a sign (as we had arranged) and about 75 mins later were checking in to our hotel! We were quoted $70 for this journey by our hotel, but this company were only charging $40 this seems to a good deal!
