Mike Smit, South Africa  February 2018 “What an absolutely wonderful trip you organised for us! The accommodation was such a treat and each place was another surprise. Suleiman was a real gem. He was a mine of information and a wonderful adviser to those shopping en route for bargains. The food was a wonderful treat! The snorkeling was also a delight even for those who are not strong swimmers and the warm water is wonderful. The bikes were quite adequate as there was no real off road to speak of and not too many hills. Getting lost in Stone Town was great fun and walking around, even at night, is just so safe”.
