Benitto organised a full day tour to prison island, nakupenda sandbank for swimming and seafood BBQ and a short tour of stone town. He basically gets a bunch of people together to make your day unforgettable. Everything was organised via WhatsApp and he gave us good prices for a full day trip. We met in stone town and headed to prison island. Here we had a guide that taught us the history of the island and then we fed the huge tortoises. We then went to nakupenda which was my fave part. The water is so clear and it's amazing to swim and relax whislt the cook prefers the food. The sea food BBQ tasted amazing, we had lobster, prawns, tuna, octopus and chips as well as some fruits. Once we were done eating we went back to stone town. Here we had another guide taking us around. I would recommend him to other people travelling together the area and I know he does tours of other places as well, just ask him for what you want. Also he takes great pictures of you and your group and sends them to you at the end. Take advantage of this!

We visited Zanzibar in December 2019/2020 (my second time and this is the second time I made use of Benitto’s services.

The service is exceptional!
There is no language barrier when arranging trips or transport. Drivers are trustworthy and on time and you always get to your destination without a hassle.

Benitto is well connected and extremely familiar with all the day trips and activities in Zanzibar - and he will tell you all about the things there is to do. They always make sure that you get the best and that you get served the best food on the trips which offers food or fruits!

We requested the same driver for all our transport and day trips - His name is Abdul, and I can highly recommend him, so pleasant and very helpful, with everything!

If you really want peace of mind, no stress and a relaxing time (like Hakuna Matata) then make use of Zanzibar Destinations (you can also follow them on Instagram).

Lastly - I was stressed about our return time, being so early, Abdul was early and we arrived early at the airport! Such peace of mind.

Benitto, thank you once again for everything! Next time, I will definitely use you again.

Benitto and his team made our trip so much more successful and enjoyable! Prior to arriving to Zanzibar, I was able to organize our trip activities with Benitto on WhatsApp. His prices were affordable and communication was prompt and clear. Among the things Benitto offered, the first thing we booked was a 2 day Safari to Selous Game Reserve. We were marveled on the entire tour. From the animals we saw, to the tea and lunch breaks we had in between. The African Camp where we stayed had a true authentic feel, was clean, and welcoming and the tour guides were truly the best. The overall Safari trip was amazing. Benitto also organized swimming with Turtles and a day trip to Nungwi Beach! This experience was like none other! During all of our excursions, his team of drivers were on time from pickup to drops off, they assisted us in anything we needed. They were kind and just the right amount of engaged. They added tidbits of Zanzibar history as they took us around. Overall, we highly recommend using Benitto and his team while in Zanzibar. Communication was clear, prices were fair and his team took good care of us making our experience in Zanzibar that much better. We were well taken care of!

From the second we landed Benny had us sorted. He made us feel safe and secure. We planned activities daily with Benny. We had so much fun, everyone who worked with Benny was so friendly we had fun every time we organised something. Making us laugh, playing music, dancing and singing the local songs.
10/10 would recommend and if I ever visit again I’ll be in contact with Benny for sure! He was on time and the prices for tours are very reasonable for a whole day trip! Really satisfied with everything he did for us!!

We were a few couples that visited Zanzibar on December/January. Beforehand, I did a lot of research about what to do, how and where. Benitto (owner) gave me suggestions and when it came down to it, organized everything flawlessly. My husband and I spent the first 3 days on the island without luggage, and with the language barrier it was quite difficult to communicate with the airport officials in Dar es Salaam. Abdul (one of Bennito’s drivers) gave me his phone, translated and helped me get our luggage back. Michael and the Captain took us out on a tour of some island and did a wonderful bbq on the beach at our last stop. His service is impeccable and reliable and I highly recommend Benitto’s services when visiting Tanzania. I can’t overstate enough the friendliness and helpfulness of this team.

Thank you Bennito!

The best tour guide on the island... very well organised and always on time ,choosing him was very easy to sort out all our excursions.

Benito is such a nice guy and he would do everything to make you happy and satisfies your requests, very easy to talk to him on what’s up or instagram page.
We done all our excursions with him plus the airport transfers ( the van driver is very polite and friendly).
Please don’t hesitate to contact Benito if you’re in Zanzibar:)

Benitto is the man for the job when visiting Zanzibar. He organized absolutely everything and was fair on pricing. He is a very knowledgeable, funny and great guy. From transfers between hotels, airport and tours everything was organized. All we had to do was show up! He is so accommodating! We loved everything about our visit to Zanzibar - the tours, the experience and the people. We came as a couple but knew other friends who we wanted to join up with for tours. He organized this so well and made sure all our needs / wants were catered for. He kept in regular contact and was such a friendly and welcoming face to greet us on arrival to the island. I 100% would recommend him and his tour company to anyone thinking of visiting Zanzibar.

Jambo!!
Zanzibar destination was great I highly recommend this guys for your transfers/tours needs while visiting Zanzibar. We stayed in 6 different hotels and they helped us with transfer in between hotels plus we did a couple of tours like Mnemba Island and my favorite nakupenda island and prison island. While at prison island you will be able to see lots of giant turtles one that is 196 years old but if you like the ocean then nakupenda island is an amazing spot to visit, crystal clear water plus they will make you lunch right in the spot. I mean shrimps, lobsters, calamari, fish, etc. amazing ! Benito thank again brother we appreciated all the help with everything. We will def be coming back and using your services.

We spent 1 week in Zanzibar and each day we used Benitto for a different excursion. Every excursion was top quality and the drivers and tour guides the same really helpful and nice people! The prices where great as well as the hotel prices for same excursions was a lot more money. Would definitely use again next time in Zanzibar!
