        Unforgettable excursions
        Me and my friend made two excursions with Abdi and Splash Tours- the first one was visiting Prison Island and Nakupenda. Even though the short notice from our side the tour was very well organized and we did not have to worry about a thing! Learning more about Prison island and seeing the turtles was great but the true highlight was the visit to the beautiful sandbank and the picnic/barbecue on the beach! The sunset we got to see from the sandbank was truly amazing! The second trip organized was a one day safari trip to Nyerere national park/Celous. We got picked up early in the morning to take a short flight directly to the park. We had great tour guide and this was also an experience to remember! I can only give my very best recommendations to this company- friendly, knowledgeable and service oriented with a very personal touch!

        10/10
        We did the nakupenda sandbank and prison island trip. It was PERFECT. No complaints. Everyone was so welcoming and kind. Abdi was great and helped us with everything we need- very trustworthy. The food on the tour was great and the guides were friendly and great too. 10/10. If you are debating- don’t debate and book this trip!

        A Fantastic Cruise
        I do like the experience from this cruise and would like to thank the guide Abdi. He went to my hotel to take me to the boat. The boat is nicely beautiful. I can stay inside or outside or even on the top to have a wider view. The crew took me and other travelers to see Stone Town on the sea while we enjoyed the snacks and drinks prepared by Abdi. On the way back, we saw the sunset in the boat. It was an impressive view and a memorable experience!

        Amazing experience!
        I went on many tours with Abdi. He’s a friendly and very knowledgable guide. My experience in Zanzibar was very memorable thanks to the great team they have. They were very accommodating and adapted the experience to my needs and preferences. I was a solo traveller and it definitely wouldn’t have been the same experience without Abdi as a tour guide. I learned so much with him in terms of history, language and culture, which definitely enriched the experience. After a few days, I felt like Zanzibar was my second home. I recommend booking a tour with Abdi to anyone who wishes to visit the beautiful island and learn about its many aspects.

        Zanzibar Prison Island Tour and Nakupenda Sandbank Trip
        We had a great private tour led by Hassan. He talked us through the history of Prison Island and the team set up a great spot for our lunch on the sandbank island. The food they made for us was delicious and it was an unmissable travel experience. Hassan and the boat guys were super friendly and Abdi was really helpful and easy to deal with. The price was also great. I would definitely recommend if you are visiting Zanzibar. The views on this tour are sensational and the tortoise experiences is absolutely amazing!

        Highly recommend!
        We had come to stone town with the idea of just wandering around ourselves but Abdi was so chilled in his approach to us that we said we’d give it a go. No regrets! He was so knowledgeable and relaxed. He even took us to a lovely bar to wait out the rain (bonus points!). Highly recommend!

        Amazing day
        2 friends and me got a boat all to ourselves and spent the day on Prison and Nakupenda island. They had water and fruits and even prepared amazing seafood for us right on Nakupenda island. We loved it, had time to swim and chill and Hassan and Abdi took great care of us. Price was also great for everything!!! Would 100% recommend.

        Spice Tour
        We did the spice tour. It was very interesting to see what grows here and get some information. The guides spoke english and we got some fruits to taste.

        Very competitive price, excellent set up
        Me and my daughter organised a two hour trip with Splash Tours in October. Due to the whole Covid pantomime, tourist numbers are way down and Splash Tours actually ran this trip for just the two of us which was fantastic. Our guide Abdi was great and spoke really good English so we were able to get a good tour and have all our questions answered. Their prices were also very competitive and I have no hesitation in encouraging everybody o book this tour and try and reward Tanzania and it's people for keeping open when the rest of the world is hiding away. Thank you Abdi, thank you Splash Tours and thank you Tanzania.

        Don't lost your time
        You wont see this island. On arriving you will be informed that it is private. Only 1 hour snorkeling near it and thats all! The lunch was very bad...

        Lukman was amazing!
        This trip was one of the highlights of our stay in Zanzibar, we were only 2, booking last minute the night before and Lukman sorted it out for a fair price. He was also our guide which was amazing, explained much more than I expected, he really made it personal. He even helped us with buying fruit and spices on the market. You can find his small office on a street next to Antonio Garden Hotel. I'm running a similar business and I have to tell you, you did amazing job! All best and Asante Sana!

        Helped make our limited time in Zanzibar great
        My wife and I visited Zanzibar after our safari but had been in touch with Lukman ahead of time. One day we visited Mnemba Atoll and went snorkeling for the first time. We had a great time! On our second day, we did the spice tour, cooking class (our highlight which I highly recommend), and the Stonetown walking tour. Lukman and team were responsive and catered to our needs, especially in arranging travel from One part of the island to another. Definitely recommend considering any Zanzibar tours with Splash.

      This was really a great experience. We booked the tour the evening before, and the communication via whatsapp was smooth and we immediately found Abdi at the agreed meeting point. The tour guide himself (Massoud) was also great. He was knowledgable and an original local from stonetown. He took us to all the important sights and also explained the historical context, very nice!
      Over all this was great value for the price, and a generally interesting tour.

      For starters, I just happened to walk past Splash tours office as it was just near my hotel and I thought I’d take a quick look. What impressed me the most, was Abdi wasn’t trying to do a big sales push like everyone else in stone town. He was down to earth, honest and didn’t put pressure on me to book with him. Later that day I booked a stone town walking tour and Abdi was exceptionally knowledgeable, thoughtful, easy going and was happy to answer all of my questions that weren’t even related to to the tour. After the tour, I booked and paid for the prison island tour to do the next day but fell sick and Splash tours were happy to move me to the next day. I was then still unwell to go the next day so they offered me a refund which I declined but asked if instead Abdi can walk with me and carry my bags to the ferry terminal and help bypass all the pushy porters which he generously accepted. Even after walking me to terminal, he offered to refund my money but no way was I taking it, Abdi was worth every cent.

      If I wasn’t unwell, I would have used splash tours for even more activities but even so, Abdi was fantastic and it was great to know I had someone who would be honest and assist me with anything I required in stone town especially when unwell. Thanks Abdi :)

      Met Lukhman by chance while walking through stone town on my first day there. I’m glad I did because he was very welcoming, charming and very informative on his excursion to Prison Island and the rest of Stone Town. He was also very instrumental in organising high quality transport to other areas of the island with a good trustworthy driver. There are many tour operators in Stone Town but I felt to go with Lukhman due to his friendly attitude and his story about building a business with his brother. Lukhman is very entrepreneurial with lots of tenacity and his business deserves to be the best tour operator on the island. He and his company are very trustworthy and would only recommend the best for any tourists on the island.
