    We have spent just a few hours there, it is clearly enough. Strange place, quite a nice experience. It is difficult to swim by the beach, as there are a lot of "dhow" gathered around this small place. But we compensate with a snorkeling session just hudreds of meters away, at large.

    A short trip to the turtles without booking a whole island tour: I managed to negotiate a return boat trip for 20.000 tsh. On the island you will pay entrance fee and some taxes which all costs 16.000 tsh. Then a guide will walk you to the entrance to turtles and you can spend about 1 h with them, you can feed them, pet them and get a lot of interesting information about them. It’s a very cool feeling walking between those giant turtles, the oldest one may be 150 years older than you 😉. The boat driver waited for us at the exit and took us back to Stone Town.

    Stopped by the Anglican Church which also served as a slave market. Emotional, worth the price. Ask for a guide as this helps understand some of the history

    A small oasis of tranquility and shade that is worth visiting after visiting the Old Fort.

    Small park located between the fort and the sea, which has a small kiosk.

    It is part of the Old Town promenade, where there are rows of old cannons and from where you can have good views of some coastal islands.

    Recommended.

    Just great to wander through the old town, down narrow cobbled streets then onto the harbour and just watch the various boats from little to large coming and going.

    Not exactly a shopping place for most tourists and yet a place to visit. A market of vegetables and other needs basically for the local inhabitants. An odd souvenir pickup of local handicraft. Backpackers dot it the most.

    I was here on Easter Sunday and it was great that there was an English language Holy Communion in the side chapel. The Swahili language service was taking place in the main part of the cathedral and was well attended.
    It was so sad to see the memorial to the slave trade just next door and to know what terrible suffering took place there.

    We organized four trips with Mr Othman and it worked out fantastically. Our driver was waiting for us at the airport with a sign and since we wanted to pay by card instead of cash, we drove to Mr Othman, right next to the airport.
    Twice we had to postpone the pick-up time at the hotel and both times everything worked out wonderfully, even the pick-up at 2:00 a.m. the next day which we arranged the evening before.
    All in all great service. The drivers were always on time when picking up. The cars were always air-conditioned.

    We rented a car with driver with this company for our 10day family holiday. The service has been amazing, the car was very good, no hidden charges or unexpected issues. But above all, our driver Rashid made the biggest difference, he made our holiday so special. What an amazing person and part of your team! We have learned so much from his stories while driving us around. He is a safe driver, always ontime, happy and always smiling! Thank you Rashid for making our holidays unforgettable!

    We had a very greate experience at Aromas. We found a pretty fabric on the day we were going home, and he made us 20 napkins from the fabric in just 2,5 hours.
    Fair price.
    It was lovely to visit the store, as they were not pushy but respectful.

    I used Tibu for all my trips to get around Zanzibar. Tibu and all his drivers were very polite and extremely punctual. As a solo traveler I always felt extremely safe. When driving to a different part of the island the drivers would explain where we were and provide a local background. He was also the most reasonably priced which I appreciated as most other transport companies I came across were trying to take advantage of me and charge higher prices. I would definitely recommend Tibu Tours for all your needs

    Lutfia was the best host full of energy and laughter! The tour starts with a trip to the local market, followed by a tour of a spice farm, and then a cooking lesson. The day was fantastic.
