“Visiting stone town”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

It is a nice to visit there..but if you know well he hitory you can walk around, but the mall roads ar quite fuzy. If yo hire guide, negotiate with the travel gency and ont hire the on street it can be trickie. They will try to charge 90usd/ person, but negotiate it as much as you can.. Everything an if they dont do looking another..they really dont have notion of money value and they oveprice everything..

“Dream Cruise in Zanzibar”
Reviewed November 5, 2008

Following a great Safari in Serengeti in Tanzania. We took a flight from Tanzania to Zanzibar for our beach resort holiday. While we were staying at the Fairmont hotel in Zanzibar my wife and I went to Stone Town for the sunrise yacht excursion with Aquasun Sail. The tour starts at 7.00am, which we didn't mind because we like to start the day early. The reception was great, they'd put out a red carpet right on the beach in front of theTembo House Hotel. The Crew were waiting for us with the dingy. We had a fast ride out to the catamaran, and as soon as we stepped onboard we were welcomed by the Chef with hot drinks. They had a very good safety announcement, then we had breakfast. It was delicious, freshly prepared pancakes, jam, fruits and mints. The sea looked like a calm lake, they said it is like that every morning there. After hoisting the sails - off we went! There was wonderful ambient music played in the background. We lay on the deck matresses and simply relaxed all the way to the Fundu sandbank. When we got there - it was dream like- we realised we'd found the most magical spot in Zanzibar. Perfect soft white sand and no footprints in view. We had a lot of fun running around putting prints everywhere. We were the only people there. It was perfectly private. The snorkelling just off the beach was great, and very easy to access. There were rainbow colored fish, and beautiful coral heads everywhere. After a fantastic relaxing time there we rode back onboard where we were welcomed to cold drinks. Then we sailed back to Stone Town and enjoyed more relaxing music while we lay on the day beds. There were picturesque views of the city waterfront as we arrived. We got there at about 11.00am It was the ideal start to the day. The yacht was stylish, very comfortable and clean. Having showers, toilets, changing rooms and running water was a real plus. The food was fresh and tasty, the Crew were very friendly knowlegable, and discrete. The cruise was All Inclusive and the price was cheap considering the excellent service we got. We went on to do a City Tour. Stone Town was a bit of a maze so I'm glad we were relaxed from the Cruise. Apparently they also do an afternoon cruise and a champagne sunset cruise. If you go to Zanzibar Stone Town this is definatley worthwhile. Our safari in Tanzania and our holiday in Zanzibar was the best we've ever had.
