    Ally planned out entire trip at a very reasonable price; hotel, tours and transfers. Everything was perfect, Would definately recommend him. We enjoyed our stay there because we did not have to worry about transport to get around Zanzibar, all that was included in the package.

    Visiting Zanzibar was one of the places on my bucket list but because the stay was so short, I wanted an awesome tour guide so that I could squeeze in as much as possible in 3 days. Yussuf did not disappoint! Yussuf arranged for an early morning pickup at the airport. He was very patient while we checked into the hotel. Since the room wasn’t available yet, we started the Stone Town walking tour straight away. Yussuf was very knowledgeable, thorough, professional, and spoke very good English. We were undecided about what we wanted to do on the second day but Yussuf was very flexible and arranged a trip to Prison Island and Nakupenda Sand Bank on very short notice. On the third day we wanted a free day to shop for souvenirs and go to a late lunch at The Rock restaurant. I mentioned our plans to Yussuf and he volunteered to make arrangements for our transportation to and from the restaurant. He sent photos of the car that would be picking us up and the driver’s name. Ramadan, the driver, was also very knowledgeable, pointing out interesting things along the way. Yussuf checked in with us to make sure all was going well. To top it off, not only did he arrange for transport back to the airport the next morning, but came with the driver to ensure all went well. I can’t recommend Yussuf enough. You will not be disappointed. It’s great that Zanzibar Freelance Tour Guide has more info on his web site to help with your planning.

    We just returned from an amazing safari trip with Sima Safari. Alon Hovav helped in organzing our trip and everything went by smoothly. We started in Zanzibar and with the help of Hadas arranged some day tours around the island. Moving on to Tanzania we had the time of our life during our 4 day safari trip with our guide Emanuel. Emanuel is extremely knowledgable, taught us about the history, geography, culture, fauna and flora of Tanzania. Emanuel is kind, sensitive and took care of all our needs throughout the trip. He was able to spot all the different animals and helped turn our vacation to one we will never forget. Thank you so much. We highly recommed Sima Safari for a perfect vacation in Tanzania.

    Mikumi was a lovely place to visit and I had a great time seeing all the animals. The only problem was the long drive to get there,6 hours driving , everything went as planned.
