Recent Reviews of this Tour

  • What an amazing experience, probably never to be repeated again. My husband and I and daughter and new partner from Australia absolutely adored the night and the atmosphere and new friends we made. Thank-you Zanzibar for turning on the good weather.
  • I’ll be honest, when we arrived for the cruise I wasn’t too sure about it as there was a massive queue waiting to get on what looked like a large tug! However my concerns were unfounded – there were several boats laid on and actually they were all decorated nicely. Once we got away, there was a bit of a queue for drinks earlier on in the evening, but they certainly weren’t tight with the alcohol! We could have drunk a whole lot more but to be honest I didn’t want to ruin the experience – and what an experience. We were lucky to have a clear and not too cold evening and the Zanzibar skyline looked amazing. Even better was mooring up right next to the House of Wonder at midnight and watching the Zanzibar Island fireworks. Something I will never forget I can tell you. Regarding the cruise itself, the boat was fine and not too crowded and the staffs were great. As I said, you could probably have had as any drinks as you wanted as there were plenty left at the end, although I should also mention that it never got too rowdy and it was a nice mix of ages and nationalities on there. God know what a three hour Zanzibar cruise with an open bar in the Stone Town would be like – carnage I expect!
