On this trip, I visited Rwanda, Tanzania, Zanzibar between 24 Sep 2014 and 9 Oct 2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.
Overall experience was excellent with the exception of the Zanzibar Coffee House and the Fishermen tour organization. The tour mostlly functioned as a taxi-they were on time and pleasant but not helpful. Read more about this whole holiday

I think the ecstatic would be a better description. You didn't ask about the safari. Our tour guide, Ayoub, was fantastic. I had my 86yr old mother with me and he treated her like gold. She was "Beebee" the whole trip ...Read more about this whole holiday

A "work clouded" sojourn
Ms A - Calgary, Canada
On this trip, I visited Tanzania, Zanzibar between 25 Jan 2012 and 11 Feb 2012 and I travelled alone.
