This tour with Ally is so exciting. He explained the culture and history of Stone Town. You can actually feel the culture as walking during this tour. I also did a food Tour and it was exciting going to the evening market. It’s a experience I would never forget. Latrice Davis (Tracy)

It was a great tour. Aly was very knowledgeable, had perfect English and an overall nice person. He first met us with the typical Zanzibary smile. We went to the old fort, we saw the beautiful zanzibar doors and knew their interesting stories, the small alleys of stone town, the slave market and the church. We felt as if we were in Stone town for long. I highly recommend him if you want the perfect tour in stone town.

A wonderful start to my visit. Alley was amazing, he had incredible knowledge of the town and island, giving historical background to the buildings, and culture of Stonetown that would not be apparent just walking around on your own. He was very animated and detailed, it was a very enjoyable and enlightening tour indeed!

Can't recommend Ally enough! He was so friendly and knowledgeable. He had the answer to every question, told us so much interesting history we didn't know, and is a genuinely fun guy to go for a walk with.
