We absolutely loved our walking tour with Ally. We learnt so much about the local culture, history and modern day Stone Town within just a few hours. The town is a beautiful maze. Thank you! We will be recommending you to our friends.

We reached out to Ally a few weeks before arriving in Zanzibar, requesting a tour that includes city walk AND night market food sampling. He responded with utmost professionalism and sincerity, and agreed to personalize our tour to suit our tastes. On the night of the tour, we got Ally’s associate Yusuph. He is such a wonderful, funny, knowledgable and understanding character. We connected really well and he took care of us (and kept our secrets) like our big brother. We absolutely love his passion and insights about the people, culture, customs, and history, and we were especially impressed by his genuine character and appetite! We learned so much about the exuberant diversity and multi-faceted influence which Zanzibar had been under. We even got to show-off our rusty piano skills at the Dhow Countries Music Academy.Along the way we sampled delicious juicy mango, cassava chips, sweet meat with the best coffee ever, local delicacies at the Forodhani food stalls, and hands down the best ice cream ever! We felt safe and welcomed during the entire tour, and as avid travelers (46 countries and counting), I highly recommend this tour 200%!Overall, this hand-crafted, rich cultural experience is one that you’d hate to miss out on when visiting Zanzibar!

We had the good fortune in connecting with Ally Jape for his tour services prior to our two-day visit to Zanzibar, Tanzania on the Azamara Quest in January. From our first contact with Ally until we left Zanzibar our experiences were first class and exceeded our expectations in every way. Clearly, we rate the experience at the top of our private tour experiences and we’ve done a lot of travelling. We could not have asked for anything more perfect with our communications and time spent with Ally. A remarkable, efficient, accomplished, respectful and informative young man who is clearly committed to excellent customer service and experiences. His extensive knowledge of the history of Zanzibar gave us the perspective we were looking for. Ally’s passion, knowledge and love of the UNESCO listed Stone Town was evident and clear. The love of the shared history, architecture and glimpses of everyday life where he grew up was clearly evident in his manner, as was the joy in doing what he does and doing it well. His excellent responses to client needs enabled us to have a perfect two days where we learnt and experienced so much. Our wish, beside seeing the main tourist sites, was to experience Zanzibar as a local and that really what we were able to achieve with Ally, our fellow small group of friends and the locals. He helped us interact with and enjoy our time with the locals where our cultural, and sometime language barriers, were crossed respectfully with ease and enjoyment. Our brief time in Zanzibar was fantastic and we now have beautiful memories our very positive time with Ally forever. Ally you made our ‘hearts sing’, we can’t thank you enough.

We had the good fortune to get a recommendation for Ally by a friend and didnt get disappointed.First of all Ally is an intelligent young man who speaks one of the best english we experienced during our two weeks in Tanzania. Not only did he take us to all the major sights, provide us with all the information and adapted to our interests but he also answered any question we could dream up in such detail that it is just amazing. Flora, fauna, food, history, politics, culture... You will be hard pressed to find a topic that will unsettle this bright young guide.Thank you for a wonderful insight into Stowntown.

We were lucky enough to stumble across Allys Instagram page thanks to a YouTube video so I decided to contact him before we arrived to see what he was offering me and I never looked back, Ally first. is an ambitious and intelligent young entrepreneur but above all human and very helpful, as soon as I had a question or a doubt whatever the subject during our trip I contacted him and he always responded very quickly and helped me to finding a solution, he put us on a great program for our days in stone town, the guides and taxis they work with are awesome, Ally went from guide to friend and thanks to him our stay in Stone Town will be unforgettable!
