From Stone Town: Private Tour to Prison Island
- Pickup available
- Duration: 3 hours
Haji was a great guide. Communicated with us prior to the tour, and helped structure the tour based on the portions that interested us the most. Prison island is definitely worth a visit to hear the history of the island and structures, and the turtle sanctuary is enjoyable as well. But the Stone Town walking tour was the highlight. Seeing the local markets and hearing a history of the spices, visiting the slavery museum and quarters; and countless other tidbits of info about the town provided a fantastic overview of the town. Our guide, Haji, was well informed on any questions we asked, and was always keeping an eye out on the small group to make sure everyone was okay. His knowledge of what we saw made the tour a 5-star experience. I highly recommend this excursion.
It's nice to see and feed the turtles (we also caught a couple getting it on which was amusing) and the guide gives you a nice tour of the island and it's history. Doesn't really need 3 hours though unless you want to spend time at the restaurant or swim on the island's beach (we had already eaten and spent the morning at the beach so ended up spending about 45 minutes which was enough).
We really enjoyed our trip with ... He was really nice, open and informative. Shared much info about the history and the traditions in Zanzibar. Was quite flexible regarding the schedule. We had a lunch in a local authentic restaurant suggested by the guide.
Great experiencie. Great kidness. very fexible on time and leen to help taking a lot of pictures. Very nice food in the amazing sand bank. Guide sprint some extra time to show souvenir shops back in the town after the trip.
This tour was amazing!! Wish all the tour guides was like Haji. He really got a passion for tourism and his History knowledge will blow your mind. Learn so much about Zanzibar! Thank you for this awesome experience.
