A Recent Review of this guide

My family loves Said! He arranged a wonderful tour of Dar Es Salaam at the last minute. Toured the wonderful fish market and the fascinating Kariakoo market. Helped with shopping, bargaining, and sampling things we would have passed up. He surprised us with a drive to the zoo outside of town through colorful neighborhoods. Although not on most lists it was the days highlight. Saw and fed elands, ostrich, baby monkeys, baboons, and oryx. Lions, leopards and hyena only 2 meters away. Fantastic experience!
