We used this company for a return airport transfer to Jambiani Beach. When we arrived the driver was waiting for us at the airport with a name board and calling out our surname.

A cheaper alternative to the airport transfer service offered by our hotel. The experience getting picked up from the airport was great so we also booked a trip with them to/from Stone Town. We toured the town ourselves, but used their services for getting there and back. All of our rides were comfortable and on time and it was quick... More

This group has a lot of room for improvement. We booked two tours (The Dolphin Tour at Kizimkazi and the Spice Farm Tour). The first was a disaster while the second was very enjoyable for me and that enjoyment had nothing to do with Babu Tours but the very informed Spice Farm Tour guide Mwali (I believe that is how...

We decided to count on his services as well for a day tour of :Spice Farm visit, Stone Town Tour and Trip to Prison Island. Drivers and guides were... More

We were in Zanzibar for one day as part of a cruise itinerary with Silversea. Because the cruise tours seemed outrageous expensive (x4 for our family), I took to the Internet to find a local tour operator who could give us a good tour of Stone Town and also transfer us to and from The Rock (approximately one hour from...

I emailed a few travel agents that I found online before heading to Zanzibar, Masoud was the most responsive and reasonably priced and I managed to book transfers and tours. His guides and drivers were reliable, on time and trustworthy and we ended up using them for 3 of the 5 days that we were there.

Thank Saada A
