This company was brilliant tailoring our trips to our needs and want we wanted to do. We did a two day spice tour traditional Swahili lunch in a... More

Through them we met Kassim, our guide to the turtle island. It was a pleasure to meet him, a very experienced guide and a local of the area. If you go to Jambiani try... More

They arranged our entire week on the island. Took care of hotels, transportation, tours we wanted. Excellent service from the very beginning of the planning to the end of our trip. I was nervous sending payments from Canada in advance but shouldn't have been. Had a small issue with one of the hotels not providing all the meals and they... More

We did tours with our guide, Musa, all over Zanzibar. Musa was a very good guide. He was friendly, accommodating and informative. He was always on time, and I highly recommend him. Our e-mails were responded to very quickly and tours were tailored to our needs - we would definitely use Eco & Culture Tours again.

We booked the Stonetown tour on the last day of our fabulous time in Zanzibar with EcoCulture Tours and we did all the arrangements by email. On the day the driver was there on time in a clean air conditioned bus and took us to meet with our guide at the market in Stone Town. The guide was knowledgeable, entertaining,... More

We booked a spice tour, combined with a half day city tour. We loved the trip. The spice tour was not only informative and also very entertaining. Walking through the plantations we learned a lot about the various spices. We tasted delicious fruits and had a wonderful lunch with a local family. The city tour took us to the most... More

We have been on 3 trips with EcoTours. The driver was always super punctual, driving very carefully. The trips were very well organized - everything was on time with no delays. The guide and the driver were very polite and had a lot of knowledge to share! They also helped us on markets, shops and showed many additional interesting things!
