          Bonjour Peut-on acheter le visa d'entrée à Zanzibar lors de l'arrivée à l'aéroport ? Peut-on le régler par carte bancaire ou faut-il le régler en espèces ? Peut-on le régler en euros ? Peut-on changer de l'argent à l'hotel ou est-il préférable de le faire à l'aéroport lors de notre arrivée ? Peut-on réserver des visites ou ballades depuis la réception de l'hotel ? Y-a-t-il un service local de bus pas trop loin de l'hotel que l'on pourrait utiliser pour aller se balader dans la capitale ? (marcher ne nous fait pas peur bien au contraire) Sinon pouvons nous réserver un taxi ? Quel en est le cout moyen pour un aller-retour à Stone Twon ? Pouvez-vous nous conseiller quelqu'un (un beach-boys) de sérieux ? Y-a-t-il un service de prêt de serviette de plage à l'hotel ? Peut-on se balader aux alentours de l'hotel ? (la nature et/ou la vie locale fait partie de ce que nous apprécions) Merci pour toutes vos réponses Hello Can I buy the entry visa in Zanzibar upon arrival at the airport? Can I pay it by credit card or do I have to pay it in cash? Can it be paid in euros? Can we change money at the hotel or is it better to do it at the airport upon arrival? Can we book tours or walks from the reception of the hotel? Is there a local bus service not too far from the hotel that you could use to walk around the capital? (Walking does not scare us quite the opposite) Can we book a taxi? What is the average cost for a round trip to Stone Twon? Can you advise someone (a beach-boys) seriously? Is there a beach towel service at the hotel? Can we walk around the hotel? (Nature and / or local life is part of what we value) Thank you for all your answers
