    Fun night out
    A really fun night out! Our guide met us at the Old Fort - and we set off on our tour. We visited Mercury Bar on the water, a gorgeous rooftop bar and then a party bar overlooking the water. Our guide made sure we all had our yummy drinks, and ensured we all got home safe and sound! We danced the night away!

    Fun and Educational
    My friends and I really enjoyed this tour. The guides gave in depth information about all of the plants and we learned so many interesting things. It was a combination of walking trails and looking at plants and sitting and listening to information and watching the process of cooking with the plants and spices. They made it fun and entertaining. If you are interested in plants and spices, I highly recommend this tour.

    I love this tour and i would recommend it to everyone. As a solo female traveler my guide Ahmed makes me feel safe. And he is very informative. the compelling story he tells about the abortion of slave trade makes me feel so moved. It is worths it This is my second time joining zanzibar local experience. Both are very great and both guides make me feel safe as a solo female traveler.

    Skip, just go to Jozani
    This was nothing to write home about to me. Unless you're going to swim in the fresh water cave or with others - I wasn't too impressed. Tour guide was very meh - just walked and explained a bit about the cave. The Rock Restaurant is a tourist trap - not a fan just something cool to look at. I did the Jozani add on and that was pretty decent.

    Breath takingly good. Full of history along with sadness
    Had an amazing experience which was set by my host who was extremely knowledgeable, sincere and warm. Wanted me to feel the experience and the history of the slave trade out of east Africa.

    Horrible
    Absolutely horrible! I felt so bad for the dolphins. They were chased by 11 boats everyone they came to the surface all the boats went full speed to that spot and surrounded them, the driver all shouted „jump, jump, now, now“. Once in the water, the dolphins were long gone, clearly did not want any contact. That was repeated a few times and then we went to a snorkeling spot for 10 minutes with almost nothing to see and the equipment was partly broke. The dolphins were chased by boats all the morning. Please don’t book that tour if you like animals!

    Poorly executed
    This can be done so much better! The boats are not easy to get in or out of the water from. They are all the same. We were out at the break of dawn, first boat out from the beach. The night had been windy, and the swell was really big. It felt unsafe going out, but it quieted down quickly. After a while of driving around we saw dolphins, but they were nowhere to be seen as we got in the water. This happened a few times, but eventually we found a pack with seven dolphins who where really curious and stayed with us for several minutes. What an experience! They swam around, over and under us, as we where snorkeling and duck diving down. Several boats came, and eventually it started feeling like a bit of a circus, so we went back to shore. I have read several negative reviews on how the boats are chasing the dolphins, not leaving them alone. I see the point in these reviews, though personally I felt like the dolphins chose to stay with us. We were in the water several times, and most times the dolphins where gone before we got in. This one time, they seemed playful and curious at us, and when they were done, they disappeared. For me, it was a wonderful experience from a boat not suited for the purpose.

    Great experience but I had ethical concerns
    Really nice to see these huge, old tortoises, who seem to have lots of space and to be fed well. They really did seem to seek out the affections of tourists and as far as I saw everyone was respectful. Really cool experience. However, please note that the young tortoises are kept in a small cage until they are old enough to be let out with the bigger ones. I was told this was for their own safety. There was NOT enough space in this cage. Dozens and dozens of small tortoises were crammed in together, stepping over and on top of each other. I think you should consider whether you want to support that before you go - I’m not sure I should have done.

    Super organised and friendly company
    We used Zanzibar Local Experiences for all our transfers around the island and they were super organised, very responsive and friendly. We took 4 or 5 taxis in total and every single the taxi arrived early or bang on time - I'd be lucky to get that kind of service in London! The cars were very comfortable and all the drivers were extremely nice and we loved getting to know each of them! Great company and highly recommend.

    Fantastic experience
    Perhaps the best experience on our entire trip. Amazingly beautiful and educational. Our driver Juma was super sweet and very punctual. Our guide Alhamisi was amazing and knew how to make it all exciting. Very in depth knowledge of most plants, and even know what to call it in many different languages.

    Can't recommend given my experience
    My first guide, Ahmad, who took me on a food tour was very lovely and professional. However, my Stone Town Tour was miserable as my guide for that day was kept flirting with me, touching me, and made inappropriate comments. As a solo female traveler, I was uncomfortable beyond words. I ending up faking being tired with the goal of expediting the tour. I give thanks that the company gave me a favorable response after I reported my experience but I'm still ruminating on it all despite it being three weeks since returning home. This review is more for that guide rather than the company as a whole.

    Dolphin lovers will HATE the way they're treated
    The way the boats chase and surround the dolphins is just horrific. Then, allowing people to just launch themselves ontop of them - what are they even thinking?! What a terrible experience.

Our guide timed our experience just right for us to see a sunset from the rooftop as we sipped fresh juice. Then we headed into the streets to see the local markets. We were able to ask lots of questions about the local life and the different produce we saw along the way. When we got to the street food, our guide was able to tell us what is safe to eat, and explained to us what was in the different options. The food was absolutely delicious, and my friend and I were both stuffed after all the food that was included in this tour. And the best part is that you get a private guide.

I went this evening with Ahmad for the Stone Town Walk Tour, and it was definitely a memorable and scenic culinary experience. Ahmad is so friendly, easy going, and personable; I felt so comfortable and educated every step of the way. Learning about a region through its food gives great perspective, and when this is combined with information on the history and culture of Stone Town, you are left with a solid and grounded framework for this culturally diverse area. I really appreciate Ahmad’s approach to the tour, which is insightful and yet not rushed, leaving time for me to stop, reflect and enjoy the scenery and moment as well on my own, or to talk with him about rich cultural details that leave a mark of the soul of this place on anyone who experiences it. Highly recommend. Thanks Ahmad!

We had an enjoyable and delicious evening. Our guide picked us up, on time, at our hotel. We strolled through the streets and local markets of Stone Town with excellent explanations of the history, sites and local culture. We enjoyed a lovely sunset drink at the Swahili House. When we arrived at the Forodhani Night Food market our guide was able to explain the different street food options and what was safe to eat. We had fun, insightful conversations with the various vendors. The food was excellent. Highly recommend this tour.

I took this evening tour after taking a foodie tour during the day. I was worried that this might just be more of the same, but it was not. The tour started out with a beer at a rooftop bar (I tried Kilamanjaro, not a bad lager) followed by a stroll down to all food booths at Fordhani Gardens. There we had Zanzibar mix, which had already had once that day. However, this rich broth dish with some street food "thrown in" was different in both locations, with the broth being the star. We also had Zanzibar pizza which I had been looking forward to trying, and found yummy, and Shawarma. To finish we had fresh sugar cane juice with lime. My only complaint about this tour was that I was too full to try any of the other yummy dishes I was smelling. Excellent evening with good food and good people watching.

Fantastic evening food tour with a wonderful kind guide! We walked around Stonetown and learned about the different doors and its history. Walked through the large food market like vegetables and seafood and meat. Learned about the different local spices. Tried some delicious Zanzibar food like orojo (hot and sour soup), Zanzibar Pizza, chicken shawarma, and topped off with ginger sugarcane juice at Fordhoni Gardens. SO many cats in Stonetown and so friendly. Everyone was very welcoming, I would highly recommend this tour! Approximate time: 2h45mins.

nice trip, it is a lot better than the tour provided by the hotel. I am glad that I joined this to stonetown the second time after the trip provided by hoteL.

Because of the cats at night market though, they are not as friendly as they look when they are interested in your food.

My tour made for a wonderful and lovely evening. I enjoyed every moment about it. The Swahili House and the nighttime market were great. My guide was also wonderful.
