We were seven of us visited Zanzibar recently, we met Lee on Instagram and linked up. He's an amazing guide, quite knowledgeable and pretty friendly. The first experience was visiting stone town where I fell in love with the city and how friendly people are. The city is pretty clean with lots of souvenir shops as well as wondering architectures designed buildings in stone town. I love cats, In stone town was the place I enjoyed feeding the cats some of them seemed to be sick tho. Lee answered all of our questions we ased, and he was fairly interested in responding to us joyfully.

We also got chances to be visiting prison island, Nakupenda sandbank, Mnemba island, safari blue, Jozani forest, spice farm. Aslo we did quad bike riding, sunset cruise in Nungwi with him. Lee is very reliable and was always on time with his driver to hit the road with us during the tour. He's prices are negotiable and affordable as well. He absolutely made our holiday so special, we utterly had an unforgettable experience exploring Zanzibar with him..

We recommend him to everyone who will visit Zanzibar, you won't regret it.

Thank you Lee for taking us around, you're an amazing. We're looking forward to visiting Pemba Island with you next time.

This our first trip to Zanzibar Tanzania. My experience was above and beyond my expectations. What an amazing Island and amazing people. My wife and I captured up Hafidh, but people call him Lee through his Instagram page and booked him for a walking stone town tour, which then followed up with other tours to the prison with Nakupenda sandbank, Jozani forest and blue safari. Hafidh made us feel home. He was always punctual, made the trips comfortably by booking air condition cars and good boats. His prices are reasonable and most importantly he is very trust worthy.

I highly recommend Hafidh as a tour guide when going to be exploring Zanzibar Island.

Thanks a lot Lee for an unbelievable experience you shared with us. We will definitely come back to Zanzibar and do activities with you.

We were 6 of us, my parents and I started communicating with Lee on Instagram for a while. We didn't believe that we could meet him and do tours with. Picked us at the airport upon arrival and escorted us with his friendly driver to Bwejuu where our accommodations was we did tons of activities with him, went swimming with dolphins at mnemba Island, prison Island, spice tour, jozani forest, the rock restaurant, safari blue, nakupenda beach, swimming with turtles at baraka aquarium and Stone town tour. The tours started almost immediately during the transport since he provided fascinating facts about the general history of Zanzibar. Lee is quite charismatic individual with wealth knowledge about the history of Zanzibar and great experience with what he does. He has really passion for what he does and it makes him an excellent tour guide. Won't be disappointed if you hire Lee for for doing activities with him. The tours were absolutely fantastic.

Thank you Lee for pretty memorable and unforgettable experience.

My family and I would absolutely recommend this tour.

Excellent tour around stone town, more than 20 points, visited where history , significance of location was explained thoroughly.

Our guide Iddi was a highly competent professional with a deep knowledge of the history of the place. This made the tour highly interesting.

In addition the tour guide Iddi, was flexible to cater and address specific demands, (example visit local market), due to his deep knowledge of the city.

Last minute arrangements and requirements from our side, of pick up and drop off where also met with success.

In short id highly recommended this company and i would gladly employ them again.

I would also look specifically for Iddi, as was very satisfied from his professionalism and customer centricity.

Hafidh - Nickname Lee, we met him on Instagram. Honestly speaking he's doing very great jobs on IG about promoting his beautiful island to the world by sharing amazing pictures and videos that he does tours with his clients. He is absolutely the best. My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience with him, doing stone town tour with him was such a delight, Lee is very friendly and in very knowledgeable about the history of Zanzibar, so charming and curious. Lee is very open, as he shared with us his tourism journey on how he got started working as a certified local tour guide. Going to different five tour companies asking for a job employment, but got rejected for five times was something that made him find alternative way to reach his goals which is Instagram page. Today he works for himself as an official freelance tour guide, ( Licensed guide ) spending eight months studying tourism studies and tour guide course and being sent to several different placements for the training course.

Thanks a lot Lee for taking us around and sharing amazing and unforgettable experience with us. Keep shining, keep showing the world what your beautiful island has to offer.

We would absolutely recommend this tour.

A lot of tourguides on the street offered their service, but nobody knows how serious and competent they are. Finally we asked at our lodge for a guide and they organized very spontaneous the tour with the wonderful guide. Unfortunately we forgot his name, but we think it has been Hafidh.
We had an excellent tour through stone town and visited a lot of places.
Our guide was highly competent with a deep knowledge of the history of the places. This made the tour very interesting. All our questions were answered competently.
We also visited places that gave an insight into everyday life and got a lot of informations about that.
The tour lasted almost three hours.

We can definitely recommend him.

We met Lee on Instagram and set up all excursions with him, he was not available the day we did the excursions tho, but one of his team guides "named Fahmi" did all the excursions with us. The first place we visited was stone town, Fahmi is pretty knowledgeable and friendly as well as pointing out various things and places of interest down alley ways and around corners that we would never have visited or known about on our own.

Fahmi is very reliable and flexible, his performance was absolutely informative. He answered all questions we asked him eagerly about stone town. We also did Nakupenda sandbank, Prison island, Safari blue, Dolphin tour on Mnemba island, baraka aquarium, jozani forest and spice tour with him, we'd an Unforgettable experience with him.

Thank you very much Fahmi and Lee for making our holiday super special, we're looking forward to visiting Zanzibar again and we will definitely join you.

High recommend to both of them, you won't regret it.

We thorougly recommend you take a tour with Lee to become familiar with Stonetown and its amazing, rich detailed history. He's pretty knowledgeable and passionate about the city and it reflects in his delivery. A kind and clever young man who you will feel comfortable and at ease with as you traspe through a winding maze of streets and markets taking note of small details of architecture that one normally wouldn't notice. Please try and book this tour, Totally recommend..!

Thank you Lee for sharing an unbelievable and unforgettable experience with us - You are an amazing .

I recently had the chance to enjoy an incredible tour of Stone Town where we visited the historical sites over a 2-hour trip. The historical tour is one of the best ways in understanding the culture and history of Zanzibar because of the very knowledgeable tour guide, Fahmi. Fahmi is an incredibly enthusiastic guide full of facts and information as well as many nuances of the ins and outs of Stone Town. I couldn't recommend this tour with Fahmi enough. It is incredible value.

Lee was our professional guide during our holiday on Zanzibar. We did all of the excursions with him (and driver Shehe) and had an exceptional time. He knows everything about the island, we could ask him everything, he was very punctual, always laughing. Always open for all personal wishes. From being our guide, he ended up as a friend. If you are looking for an honest reliable guide ....defenitely book Lee!!
