We had a busy program with Masoud: first day in Zanzibar to Freddie Mercury Museum and Prison Island. Then we flew to the mainland for a wonderful two-day safari, accompanied by an experienced & friendly guide. We saw many animals. The last day in Zanzibar we had an amazing dolphin safari on the ocean. All was well arranged, all pick-ups were in time and the prices were very reasonable. Thank you Masoud, we recommend your company strongly to others!!

I did the StoneTown walking tour in March 2022, in the afternoon before heading for the airport that evening, I could leave my luggage with the driver while the guide completed the walking tour. I booked it on WhatsApp which was quick and easy. I was picked up on time from the hotel which was in the Southeast coast of the Island over an hour away from Stonetown. The driver was very nice and friendly, and the guide for the walking tour was also very nice, friendly and very informative and passionate about sharing the history of Zanzibar and Stonetown. I really enjoyed the tour. Thank you, Loretta

We booked return airport pick upl via Zanzibar Airport Travel, which was fulfilled by Babu Tours.
Arrival went fairly smoothly, met at airport with man holding name, transport was ok.
Departure pickup was a different story though, the van that arrived was in very poor condition - the exhaust was held on with Bungee rope and made a terrible noise - it fell off after each bump in the road, also the air conditioning blew only hot air - the driver arrived dripping in sweat and one of the passenger seats rocked backwards and forwards on movement. We did not get out of the hotel grounds before deciding we did not feel safe - even the airport staff said that they did not believe the van would make the 50km to the airport. The driver did not want to turn around and we had to get out of the van to force him not to proceed.
Babu Tours did offer to provide a replacement, saying that it had already been sent and would be 30 mins, then 10 mins. Given that the final road to the hotel from the main road took 20 mins, both time frames were unlikely and I felt that the replacement would be no better (the van had Babu Tours logo on side).
We ended up getting the hotel transport to take us at added cost as we had a plane to catch.
Emails to Zanzibar Airport Transfer asking for the $45 for return leg have not been answered. Babu Tours at least did respond, saying this was their first complaint and that they would improve the service - but no refund.
They were cheap - but the reason for this is that they use vehicles of a poor standard.

Do not book nothing from this company!!!
We booked Safari Blue, after pick up at 8 a.m. from the hotel we were waiting almost 2 hours in the port before we could enter the boat, after the trip The Owner wanted extra 30 USD becouse in his opinion my 11 years old Child is older. Avoid this company!!!

Extremely flexible, arranged 3 tours for us with very short notice - each time.

All the guides and taxi drivers were polite, friendly and punctual.

My highest recommendations.

These guys are super incredible. They handled all of our tours in Zanzibar. Masood answers every question patiently. Their drivers are on time or early. The lunch buffets are on point. In particular, we really liked Salum/Badja, who was our driver for two days. Very trustworthy business.

I came to Zanzibar and was recommended to use this company for taxi purposes. From the first taxi trip I could tell that this was a professional company with amazing prices. I then requested them for touristic purposes and they did not disappointment at all. Very professional, very timely and again the prices are 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽 anything to do in Zanzibar at reasonable prices I would highly recommend this company. Masoud has been nothing but responsive and helpful. Definitely using this company every time and recommending to whomever comes to Zanzibar. I come from Dubai and so I consider this company to be of the highest standards here! Thank you
