Masoud is a competent guide. We spent around 2hours around Stone Town and he gave us a good amount of information. We just wished he had given more tips about what to do in town and where to eat.

Masoud is great. Very knowledgeable and authentic perception on many aspects of Zanzibar and Stone Towns history. Plus some popular culture too. Not to mention good impartial assessment of shopping for a variety of needs and price points. Strongly recommend.
