Our very friendly guide, Zaida, walked us around the area where spices and fruit are grown. The lunch was very tasty and all in all the tour was a fun and interesting activity.

Colors of Zanzibar was most flexible in arranging the whole of harbour pick-up, Stone town tour, spice farm visit, and finally drop-off to a Nungwi hotel, for a reasonable cost. Saida was an excellent guide: knowing, relaxed, humorous, flexible, open.
