I came to Zanzibar and was recommended to use this company for taxi purposes. From the first taxi trip I could tell that this was a professional company with amazing prices. I then requested them for touristic purposes and they did not disappointment at all. Very professional, very timely and again the prices are 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽 anything to do in Zanzibar at reasonable prices I would highly recommend this company. Masoud has been nothing but responsive and helpful. Definitely using this company every time and recommending to whomever comes to Zanzibar. I come from Dubai and so I consider this company to be of the highest standards here! Thank you

We had a busy program with Masoud: first day in Zanzibar to Freddie Mercury Museum and Prison Island. Then we flew to the mainland for a wonderful two-day safari, accompanied by an experienced & friendly guide. We saw many animals. The last day in Zanzibar we had an amazing dolphin safari on the ocean. All was well arranged, all pick-ups were in time and the prices were very reasonable. Thank you Masoud, we recommend your company strongly to others!!

We used Babu tours for a ride from the airport to our resort, a tour of Stome Town, and a day trip to Nungwe Beach, and a very early morning ride back to the airport. The drivers were always punctual, reliable, friendly, helpful, and informative. The prices were very reasonable. Not only would I highly recommend them, but they are the ONLY transfer/taxi/tour service I will use when I visit Zanzibar!

Babu Tours & Safaris run by Massoud was the easiest online & personal service I’ve used in a long time! Two ladies traveling alone with utmost peace of mind using this company thanks to their professionalism, quick turnaround and friendly service. Our driver was awesome and the vehicle was safe & well maintained. Collection at our resort was punctual and anything we required including a quick trip to an ATM was met with a “no problem” attitude all the time. Give these guys the support they deserve 👌🏻

Masoud was the manager. I was in touch with him a week before the travel, and he patiently answered all my queries about the trip and guided us well. They worked out a brilliant package customized specially for us... to see the places we wanted to visit with a dedicated driver to take us everywhere. The driver Salum was a fun and chirpy fella. He played wonderful songs enroute while driving and kept us entertained throughout. He really took care of us as we were two girls traveling alone and we didn't have to worry about anything. Everything was perfect and professionally managed. And Masoud was constantly in touch with us via WhatsApp and calls during our trip. I highly recommended their services and be assured you will not be disappointed. Thank you Masoud and Salum for a wonderful trip to Zanzibar. We are taking back amazing memories.

I used Babu Tours & Safaris for a day trip to Jozani Forest and a round trip from the airport to Stone Town. The drivers, especially mine to and from the airport, as well as the guides were second to none. They all arrived on time and were extremely helpful and gracious. Upon exiting the customs area, the driver had my name on a piece of paper waiting. The whole process could not have been easier and I made it to my hotel without any issues fairly quickly, which is nice after a long flight.

I had a fantastic experience with Babu Tours in Zanzibar. Mr. Masoud, the manager, provided professional and reliable service throughout my stay. From airport transfers to taxis and tours, everything was organized seamlessly. The drivers were punctual, the tours were informative, and Mr. Masoud ensured that all my needs were met. I highly recommend Babu Tours for a hassle-free and enjoyable experience in Zanzibar.

I did the StoneTown walking tour in March 2022, in the afternoon before heading for the airport that evening, I could leave my luggage with the driver while the guide completed the walking tour. I booked it on WhatsApp which was quick and easy. I was picked up on time from the hotel which was in the Southeast coast of the Island over an hour away from Stonetown. The driver was very nice and friendly, and the guide for the walking tour was also very nice, friendly and very informative and passionate about sharing the history of Zanzibar and Stonetown. I really enjoyed the tour. Thank you, Loretta

Babu tours made booking a safari super easy and Masoud was very professional and answered all of my questions quickly! We got a very fair price and we were able to stay at two nice lodges while on our safari. We were super impressed that we did not have to worry about a thing while we were in their care. We were so happy with the company and the experience!

We did the Mnemba Atoll Tour with Babu Tours and had a perfect day. We even saw dolphins and could swim with them.We had a delicious lunch at the boat, which was grilled fresh fish with rice and vegetables. The driver and the captain and "crew" were all very nice. Afterwards we saw the sunset at the beach which was very beautiful. We can recommend this to everyone.
„Salum“ is the best driver and we were constantly laughing on the way back :)
