a great tour with a local lunch. Because of our walking limitations the tour was rather abbreviated. Not the guide's fault at all.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for taking your time to review your experience with others, it was our pleasure to have you as our valued Guests. On behalf of myself and tours by locals team, thanks a lot. Best Regards, Your faithfully Guide. Said M..

Date: Jan 9/20

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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Sir Thomas Welborn for your review and huge trust on me and tours by locals. Thanks a lot for choosing us, on behalf of tours by locals team, thanks a lot. It was my great pleasure to host and serve you. Best Regards, Said M.

Stonetown, Zanzibar, was known for its maze-like streets. Getting a local guide is highly recommended. Said was excellent. Flexible and easy to work with. He tailored the tour to meet my interests. Most important, his English is good.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Ina Lee, it was my great pleasure to host and serve you. All the best, see you once again.

Tour: #522022, Zanzibar Excursion Safari Blue Day Tour, Zanzibar, Tanzania    view tour
Date: Feb 6/19

This was a wonderful tour for the adventurous! Said M was a great guide and what few small things that were not perfect were made up for by the heartfelt hard work and attention to detail that Said put into the tour. Crystal blue waters for snorkeling, wonderful local fruit on a white sand beach and a wonderful barbeque lunch with dozens of fishing boats bobbing on blue waters for the back round. Being serenaded by local music from our guide and crew on our fishing boat was the best! Thank you Said.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well Mary Delene Lambert, on behalf of myself and all staffs involved in that tour, we are very thankful, we wish you all the best in your life. Welcome Again Zanzibar, the true and unique Paradise of Africa.
