Thoroughly enjoyed this biking spice tour through the historic Stone Town. It was beautiful and our guides were super knowledgeable, warm, and friendly. The biking kind of kicked our butts, so be prepared for a scenic, but challenging route. Bless up 🙌🏾

Happy to hear you love our guides as much as we do! They have taken about 500 people around Zanzibar so they know how to share their island and secrets.
