We had a wonderful evening with Abw! He picked us up from our hotel, showed us the buzzing local food market, shared insights to zanzibari culture, people & life, we had our sundowner on a lovely rooftop and the highlight: delicious and freshly prepared local foods on the night market! He reassured us several times, that the products we tried are fresh, met our preferences & were super tasty. We can only recommend this tour through lively Stone Town by night! HAKUNA MATATA!

He gave us a great time! Don't hesitate to ask if you want a French-speaking guide. He is very friendly and always smiling! His name is Basil and he lives in a small town with a funny name: BUBUBU!
