We just came back from our trip to Zanzibar. We took a tour with Yussuf after reviewing him on TripAdvisor. He exceeded all our expectations. We spent 2 days with him in Stone town. He is very knowledgeable and he brought us years back throughout the Stone Town history. We enjoyed every min with him. He took us everywhere we asked him, exchange office, other places to refresh... But beside everything, he quided us throughout PSR tasting. He found out the place in Stone Town the test is performed. He went with us and spent all his day until we got testing done, on heat in crowded lab, pushing for us inquiring and giving his best to make everything easier for us. We didn't expect this and we are so grateful to Yussuf and his hospitality when we needed it the most. And the story is not ending there. After we got tested we left to Nungwi. Our test was supposed to be done is 2 3 days. The same day of our flight when we were going to puck up the test, somebody hit our car in Nungwi and we couldn't be on time to pick up our results. Immediately i phoned to Yussuf and he told us not to worry he will go there to get it. And he did. He went he waited in queue 1h, he made it happened although he didnt have physical receipts. By the time we came from Nungwi which took another 1h, he had our results and we quickly picked it up and we were on time for our flight. Nothing would happened had not been him. YUSSUF, THANK YOU FOR BEING SUCH AN AMAZING PERSON AND HOST. We give all the best recommendations to your services that are beyond all limits. Hope to see you again. Asante Yussuf.

We were on a cruise ship and decided to use Yussef based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. He is very knowledgeable, very organized and efficient. We really enjoyed our tour of Stone Town and also boojed the Spice Garden tour the folliwing day. We can highly recommend him as a tour guide and he is easily contactable on whatsapp and email.

We did the snorkeling and prison island trip. Yussuf was very knowledgeable with the area, history and politics with Tanzania. He did a great job as a tour guide and took lots of pictures of us. He is well connected with the area and can help with shuttles and other services as well. One comment he did make is to be careful eating at the night markets, as the fish may not always be fresh (Some of our hotel neighbours were sick after indulging in the seafood at the night markets)

My boyfriend arranged the Prison Island and Stone Town tour with Yussuf, unfortunately, I was unwell the night before we were due to go on the tour. Yussuf was highly understanding and we rearranged the tour for a few days later. We were picked up by Popo, who was a friendly and safe driver. We were dropped off in Stone Town where we met Yussuf and went over to Prison Island, were given the history and saw the giant tortoises! They are incredible! We then went back to Stone Town and commenced the walking tour. Yussuf is so knowledgeable, will answer any questions you have and spends the time to make sure you understand the history. We chose a spot for lunch and Yussuf left us to have lunch and met us an hour later. Overall, I would highly recommend Yussuf based on his communication, knowledge and organisation. So glad we booked with Yussuf. I would definitely recommend!

We contacted Yussuf for a tour of Stone Town. He responded quickly to our inquiry and to further questions we had. We wanted to have dinner in Stone Town so requested that Yussuf drop us off at our hotel after the dinner. All agreed with no additional cost. Very courteous and honorable. Yussuf picked us up promptly from our hotel and gave us some history on the drive to Stone Town. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Zanzibar and Stone Town and was quick to answer any questions we had. We toured the waterfront, the markets, the shopping alleys, and had plenty of time at the Slave Chambers and museum. Appreciated Yussuf giving us the time to take in that exhibit at our own pace. It was a very thorough tour and we would be pleased to recommend Yussuf. Why not 5 stars? 1. Yussuf asked for his payment mid tour. Fortunately we had read about this on reviews before so were prepared, but it didn't seem too professional. I'd suggest Yussuf tell clients when they confirm that he would need payment immediately on pick up. It felt uncomfortable to be asked to step into a small shop and hand over money. We'd have preferred to do that in the car. 2. Our tour ended more than an hour before our dinner reservation which we'd confirmed with Yussuf. We wish we'd known how long to expect the tour to last as we could have spent that time relaxing at our hotel rather than rushing to begin our tour.
