We were in Zanzibar for 4 days and used Colors of Zanzibar for all of our tour needs while there, in addition to airport shuttle service and transportation to the Covid testing site. We were extremely pleased with everything! They were puncutal, knowledgable, and fun. Our first excursion was to Chumbe Island, in which CoZ took us to the rendezvous point. The Chumbe Island staff took over from there, but CoZ was there on time to pick us up at the end of the day. Our second day we took a tour of Jozani Forest. Amigo was our guide and we really enjoyed him! He was very fun and knowledgeable. We had reservations for The Rock that afternoon, so they took us there and waited until our dinner was over to return us back to Stonetown. On our third day, Amigo took us to a spice farm where we had a very enjoyable morning! You can't go to Zanzibar without experiencing their amazing spices! That afternoon he took us on a walking tour of Stonetown and taught us the incredible history. I would highly recommend Colors of Zanzibar!

We had a great time on a tour to Prison Island. I booked the tour online for a family of four and received a confirmation shortly. Our guide picked us up from the hotel right on time and took us on a very pleasant boat trip to Prison Island, and afterwards for snorkeling on a nearby reef. Our tour started at 9am and it quicklu turned out an early start was a great idea as we were literally the first tourists both on the island and the reef and we had it all to ourselves before many more boats arrived with other people. Everything was exactly as described and as expected. Our guide was very nice, answered all our questions, jumped into the water to swim with us and even bought some local sweets to show us how baobab candy tastes. Special congratulations to trainee tour guide Aziza who will one day become Zanzibar's best female tour guide!

We had a wonderful time beach hopping. The company was very accommodating. The best part was our driver/guide Fahad: he was punctual, professional, with a wonderful positive attitude. I wish there were more people like Fahad in this world! Thank you Colors of Zanzibar and thank you Fahad for making our day unforgettable.

We booked couple of tours via this company. Fahad , our driver was amazing. He showed us the entire island from the perspective of a local. We saw many points of interest and were in awe. It was no stress, no issues and no time constraints. Prison Island was also part of our package. They customize trips to your liking. Fahad was amazing and we will come back.

I was impressed that the company was able to scramble and hunt down a guide with less than the two hour notice I provided them. Fatma was assigned as my guide for a Stone Town Your. Apparently, in the last few years, female guides have broken the gender barrier. Her gender aside, Fatma proved to be a smart, savvy and energetic guide. I kept her busy with a lot of questions that she thoughtfully answered. We covered a lot of ground both walking and talking, and I appreciated Fatna's dedication and enthusiasm. I wish I had more time with her to squeeze in a Spice Tour, maybe next time. Overall, I wa thrilled with my experience.
