If I could describe the tour with Iddi in one word, fantastic! What a professional tour guide. He has not only has a lot of knowledge about the history of Zanzibar. but he teaches you a lot of general knowledge related to Africa. A very nice man who made me feel safe and trusted. He carried my bags and took many instagram worthy pictures of me. As a solo female traveler I found this very helpful. See you another time Iddi, asanté.

From the get go, I knew Iddi would be a great guide. Not only did he confirm my booking within a few hours, but he also messaged me a day before and a few hours to the walking tour to confirm about our agreed time and my participation in the tour. During the tour, Iddi expressed great enthusiasm and mastery of Zanzibar/Stone Town's history. As one who's grown up in Zanzibar, he is very well suited to offer this walking tour. As a solo traveler, I really appreciated that he gladly offered to take beautiful photos of me as we went along. This handy skill ensured that I have great photos and memories to remind me of this amazing walking tour of Stone Town. The route selected was exemplary and was truly a walk back in time. He's also a great plug for other excursions you may have in mind. Thanks again Iddi!
