After a very delayed start due to tour guide not turning up, and having had to contact happy tours by phone to arrange a meeting place, we were told we would be going to Prison Island first. We were walked to a beach about 10-15mins away. the tour guide left us, and we were put on boat with a very smiley boat owner who did not speak any English. A very choppy but enjoyable 30mins ride out to prison island. The boat owner followed us around and tried to show us parts of the island. On return we were met by our original guide who did a
short walking tour of Stone Town. Not a very professional company, but this is Zanzibar!

Somewhat disappointing, with being a waking tour through the old part Stone Town the guide was not well versed in
guiding, speaking vispering voice we had to asked to repeat, not over all well informed, however it was interesting to see
the old heritage of the Town. The trip by dhow boat to prison island and see the Giant Land Turtles was great fun,
walking between them and feeding them quite an experience.

We had the most wonderful time on this tour. Our guide Riz'one was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job of our walking tour of Stone Town. He explained all the sights and had a really amazing grasp of the history of the area.We toured the memorial to the slave market and it was powerful! The ride out to Prison Island was spectacular and the tortoise sanctuary was a treat.
Highly recommend this tour!
