    Full-day adventure of hitting Zanzibar’s most iconic parts!! As first timers in Zanzibar, this tour was a great way to learn about the history and culture as well as see some of the island’s most unique areas. We got to see the spice farm, of course, but also walked through the markets of Stone Town, stopped for coffee/drinks at a beautiful rooftop bar, and even took in some of the sights and sounds of the night market to watch the sunset. This was in addition to the obvious tour activities. Ismail was very knowledgeable and accommodating, and our driver, Asad, was great too. Ismail took the time to inform us of everything we wanted to know, answered all the questions we had, and was open to catering the tour to our interests/needs, as well. Also, they are very responsive. We stayed in Paje and needed transportation to Stone Town. They responded to inquiries quickly and were very easy to work with on logistics. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Zanzibar!

    We had a great experience – Our guide picked us up from our stonewall hotel so no hanging around trying to find the guide on the sea front

    He was very informative, about the history of the island and the tortoises
    A previous review was complaining about the plastic and rubbish on the island but we did not see any

    After the tortoises we finish with a snorkel on the reef before heading back
    Would highly recommend, put it this way we came back to the hotel and booked the same firm to go on a spice tour the next day

    We had a wonderful full-day trip to the area around Mnemba Island to snorkel. We arrived at Nungwi Inn a bit late and Said was very helpful even though our transfer vehicle took us to the wrong destination. Said guided the driver and was very supportive. We were provided with all necessary equipment, even first-time snorkelers were given an opportunity to try. Captain and boat Assistant were very nice and showed us the best spots. We got videos of the corals through one of the boat assistants! As an amateur swimmer I felt pretty safe, they provided me with a life jacket and they kept an eye on me :) We are really happy with the experience and it was very memorable

    The tour took so much time . It was a bad management of time and completely unnecessary !
    I would advise people to NOT take this tour .

    First , when we got the island we were given several times for like . First 11:30 , 12:00 , 12:30 . The food didn’t come until 1:30 . Many of guest weee exhausted waiting for food . The food was sitting until everything was cooked . The food was disgusting and COLD .

    I was so disappointed in the service , the laced attitude , and to have everyone waiting just get to cold food was a disaster !

    We booked with Mango Tours twice and they were exceptional both times. They were on time to our hotel pick-ups, the day was so well organised (we were not waiting around for anything) and we were able to spend as long as we wanted at each stop. We were not rushed and nothing was too big of an ask. We felt safe and very well looked after.
    The itinerary was brilliant, we saw everything we wanted and more!
    Thank you Abbas and Rose for being so knowledgeable and patient!
    We would definitely recommend!

Overall it was a great experience that I 100% recommended.

    I booked a tour with Zan Archipelago but then got very sick the morning of and could not go. The people at Zan were very understanding and accommodating and were able to refund part of my money. Excellent customer service.

    We paid £112.84 in total for this trip for 2. Then had to pay 11,500 TSH per person to get into the slave exhibition. Which wasn’t worth the money as just placards on a wall, all information readily available on the internet. Feel this exhibition should be included in the price already paid.

    Our guide Yakoub was knowledgeable. And the boat driver friendly.

    The driver picked us up on time, but played loud music going and coming back from stone town, I had to ask him to turn the music down. On the way back we saw red Columbus monkeys on the trees. I asked the driver to stop so we could take a photo, but as I got my camera ready he drove off stating tomorrow he would bring us to the forest- something which we had previously conversed we would of liked to see but made no plans with this company or the driver.

    The tortoise are lovely, but on leaving the locals on the island ask for money to support the turtles….when we have paid already to see them in the first instance.

    Stone town was steeped in history. But on entering the Portuguese fort, again- locals asking for money to support their fort. In stone town along the promenade we were followed, every time Yakoub stopped to speak to us so too did the men around. Found this a little unsettling.

    We had a wonderful evening. Ahmad picked up on time at designated meeting point. We walk thru stone town and market with an explanation of what we were seeing. We passed through walkways and alleys used by locals we would never have otherwise seen. Afterwards we had a drink at the top of Swahili House. Took lots of photos and saw the sunset. Then walked through Stone Town to the Night Food Market at Forodhani gardens and sampled some really good food, finishing with a local coffee.

    Beautiful day, nakupenda island . Love island and believe me it is. The best time to visit this love paradise is in the morning before the high tides covers it up during the afternoon hours. We were lucky to make it there on time and spend the whole morning. Snorkeling . We also had lunch, we were served a variety of delicious sea food. One of my favorites was pweza. Recommended
