Can't recommend Ally enough! He was so friendly and knowledgeable. He had the answer to every question, told us so much interesting history we didn't know, and is a genuinely fun guy to go for a walk with.

A wonderful and fascinating 3 hours. Ally was very knowledgeable, engaging and his English was perfect. He paced the walk just right and led us down allies we would have easily walked past. He was helpful I individual requests and we were lucky enough to have him to ourselves.
A must do when in Zanzibar

Our Guide was Yusef and we were the only couple on this walking tour. Yusef was very knowledgeable and friendly and pointed out various things and places of interest down alley ways and around corners that we would never have visited or known about on our own. His command of English was excellent It was an extremely hot, humid day and Yusef had high regard for our comfort checking constantly the pace and suggesting rest stops, providing water and so on .c The tour was for four hours but Yusef willingly extended it to ensure we experienced all there was to see and do. Cannot recommend Yusef highly enough.

Dear Carole, Thanks for having booked with us and leaving a review of your experience, I am pleased to read that my team guide "Yusuf" was able to deliver the tour in the same quality we maintain and even going an extra mile to make sure you get the most out of your stone town experience, Your mention of the qualities such as knowledge, friendliness, flexibility and English language command are highly appreciated, as we keep on making our services even better every day, Thanks for choosing us and KARIBU TENA!! Best Regards, Ally Jape
Walking tour with Jusuf
, Jan 2020
Jusuf was an excellent guide and very accommodating - waiting while my son swam with the local boys and when my husband visited the music school. Nothing was too much trouble and the tour (& Jusuf) are highly recommended.
Walking through the streets of Stonetown

We thorougly recommend you take a tour with Aly Jape to become familiar with Stonetown and its amazing, rich detailed history. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the city and it reflects in his delivery. A kind and clever young man who you will feel comfortable and at ease with as you traspe through a winding maze of streets and markets taking note of small details of architecture that one normally wouldn't notice. Please try and book this tour Totally recommend !
Ally is committed to providing the knowledge of his community to tourists who use his services.

Ally is special. He had invested time in learning the many dimensions of his community -- cultural, historical, architectural, geographical -- you name it, he has it covered. He expresses pride in Zanzibar, especially how the different cultures mesh. I wonder how anyone else, even with a plethora of talking points can even come close to Ally's performance or value.
