We took the Jambiani tour with our teenage kids and very much enjoyed ourselves. The knowledgeable Mustapha with his joyful nature took more than good care of us showing us around Jambiani village on our bicycles. Lunch at the Okala restaurant was a real treat. Probably the best food we have had in Zanzibar so far. The coconut Octopus was outstanding. All in all a memorable tour. Highly recommended.

Overall pleased with our experience. I thought the spice tour would be overrated but it was actually really nice. We god a private tour for just us and could try lots of fruits and spices, got answers to all our questions, and the lunch provided was delicious. Dala dala ride to the farm was interesting and biking through stone town and the forest was a nice experience. However it could have been a bit better organised. Our tour guide was late, then we had to wait for him to run some errands, collect the bikes, exchange some money and we didnt actually leave until 10AM. We waited half an hour for the dala dala, it didnt arrive so we biked to another bus stop and waited for another one. I understand this part cannot be planned as there is no timetable, but it felt like a bit of a waste of time, and we only arrived to the farm 11.30. I did not get a proper mountain bike, but a small ladies city bike with basket, it was okay but not optimal for biking in the forest and on bumpy roads with stones everywhere. A bit pricey and despite the waiting times and suboptimal bike, the overall experience was nice so I would still recommend it.

Thanks Sofia for your positive feedback about the tour and that the Spice Tour was above your expectation. Zanzibar is a lot about taking it easy and wait- they have another time flow here. As with the dala dala- they come when they come :) Still this is a very good way to get a true experience of Zanzibar and to avoid the hectic traffic around city center.

We booked the 7-days tour on short notice and everything was perfectly organized. We really enjoyed the tour especially the divided programm between biking and other actions like dhowtrip, crossings by boat, dinner in stonetown and the spice farm.

We had a great bike tour around Zanzibar. Everything was very well organized and our guide Suleiman was very talkative and knew a lot about everything. He navigated us safely around Zanzibar in the at times chaotic traffic. We highly recommend biking around Zanzibar with Bike Zanzibar. It is a perfect way to see this wonderful island and meeting the people. We felt at all times safe and the people are very nice.

Thank you for sharing your experience! So happy you enjoyed being with Suleiman. Both him and our other guides love to share the real Zanzibar- the food, fruit and culture and take you to places most people will not see.

Bike Zanzibar was a freeing and immersive experience. I was able to explore every corner of Stone Town and its farms. It's also a great workout - 20km of hot sun and locals calling out "jambo" excitedly. And that's only one way. It was also my first experience riding the dala dala, in which you can witness the ways locals help each other out. During the actual spice tour, I learned all about the spices I've used my whole life but never knew how/where it came from. Then I see the same spices/food in my delicious lunch. I would say this was the best tour I've tried in Stone Town and would highly recommend for those who want to see more in one day and who are not afraid to be super sweaty at the end of it. My advice: bring a big jug of water.

Happy to read you had a great day with us Sally! The dala dala we take to get out of the busy traffic but is is also a true authentic experience. And indeed it is interesting to see all spices in their natural environment. I did not know that cardamom grows on the ground for instance.
