Recent Reviews of this Tour

  • I did the hop-on hop-off tour in Dar es Salaam City for 5 days straight on my second visit to the city and couldn’t wait to get on the bus each morning. You see everything, and the drivers and hostesses are very accommodating. Be sure to schedule time at Kunduchi Beach to see the crazy seals, and the World of Marine life to see the amusing residents. I couldn’t have seen most of the sights without this bus, because cabs are very expensive in Dar es Salaam City.
