Good overview with a welcoming tour guide ! I had the pleasure to join 3 hours walking tour with Derek in Dar es Salaam City. He presented the major sights with many background explanations. I was very satisfied as these were more than just sights. All my questions besides have been cleared and he helped me also with some travel issues. All in all a sound package to be recommended 1

Derek was friendly and we visited the fish market, the oldest building and the botanical garden. Unfortunately we had to ask most questions to get interesting information, he should know and tell much more about history and life in the city from himself to keep the tour exciting. Also the purpose of such a tour is not to bring us several times to people who try to sell things to us, which happened twice and we felt uncomfortable. Better to explain beforehand what is coming and which cost will be there so that the guests can decide if they want to do this or not. Communication with Derek was good amd he can surely improve his tour. Thanks.

I would like to write a great review, however we were too busy travelling to get to Dar Es Salaam, and did not see Dereks emails, and apparently he needed us to confirm. As we didn’t confirm, he didn’t turn up to take us on our tour. We waited 30 mins, and he didn’t show. Apparently we were punished for the people who don’t show up. Shame would have liked to see his city.
