After some time it appears that David has decided to make things right. It is very honorable. He has sent me 150$. I will keep you posted on his progress. It is good to see the company beginning to make things right. Thank you David

I booked with David in 2012 paid in full for a car hire in Arusha. He did not provide the car and continued to lie and promise the car was on the way. We later discovered by his own admission that times were hard and he had mis spent our money. After a year of emails and promises I have... More

Forget the beach, one of the best things to do while on Zanzibar is get lost wandering around the old quarter of the Stonetown. There are some hidden gems in there and the people are very helpful should you need directions to find your way out. Also don't to forget to have coffee with the locals.

The whole all scented with spices. The... More
