I had an absolutely wonderful day tour of Dar es Salaam with Mike. This young man met me at the Ferry Terminus on my arrival, the first thing I saw when exiting the building, was my name held high in black and white. He gave me the required history of the area we were in and then he took me around the area before we drove to the next point. My tour lasted approximately six hours, and Mike kept me engaged all the way, he is a wealth of information and very knowledgeable about Dar. We covered so many places and only break for lunch. He also provided bottled water to keep me hydrated. He was very patient with my many questions, and his main interest was making sure I had a great experience. I now have a wonderful knowledge of this wonderful city. There was so much information at hand, and so fascinating. We also visited the tourist market where I was able to purchase all my souvenirs, and I found the fish market to be a memorable experience. Mike turned a good vacation into a great one.

I liked it very much. Many thanks to the organizers for picking me up from the hotel. An interesting adventure - moving on a local ferry to another part of the city. There we visited the fish market with local flair, the churches, which were especially decorated for Christmas, even got to the Christmas service. I was impressed by the museum and, of course, the ethnic village with a performance in which I myself had a chance to participate. Communication with the guide and his story was a special pleasure and left a wonderful impression of this day spent in Dar es Salaam.

Booked at the last minute during my 7 days in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Glad I selected Dove Adventure Tanzania for the City Tour. I truly had a great experience. The tour consisted of me and the guide, Mr. Lasway. Mr. Lasway was knowledgeable about the history of the areas visited, and made the experience to the Village Museum memorable and exciting. Throughout the tour he was very courteous and insightful. If I ever come back to Tanzania, I’d book again with Dove Adventure Tanzania!
