"Children enjoy this a lot"
The spice tour would be OK if you have never done anything like that. If you have, it is pretty standard stuff." Read more about this whole safari
"Beautiful scenery on Spice Plantation"
The homemade lunch was also really tasty and one of the highlights - being able to the try the local cuisine that used many of the spices we saw on the tour was great.
The only complaint was that the guide was not fully engaged - he was often on his mobile phone and rushed us a bit at the end of lunch as he had another tour starting immediately afterwards. It can be difficult to strike the right balance between an authentic and tourist experience, and seeing numerous others tourists walking around Stone Town with the same woven crowns and headbands was a little disappointing."

"Anjam Hassan is the guide you want!"
We did have a slight issue with Fishman tours office as they insisted we had not pre paid. When our driver brought me to the office, a woman there showed me the body of an e-mail from Expert Africa asking for payment. The e-mail did not show a client name or reference #. When I asked to see both she reluctantly showed me the client name and # which was a different party entirely. I pointed this out and we were on our way. We not only enjoyed the tour but the included lunch was outstanding as well. We truly enjoyed the experience." Read more about this whole safari
