It was an absolute hit. We had the trip on the second day of our arrival. Our guide took us to the original, non-touristy part and told us a lot about politics, culture, handcraft and life in Zanzibar. It was very exciting. He also showed us the easiest way to get back from the village to the Hotel Sandies and that it is more likely to do shopping where women sell because they use the income for the children. All in all a really recommendable excursion. The sunset trip is also uuuuu absolutely recommended! There is a bongo team on board, which creates a good atmosphere and the ship is unique! I don't want to reveal too much here, take part!
