I really enjoyed this tour. Of all the things I had planned for my dad's visit, he enjoyed this the most, and said it's what he would remember the most.

The tour guides were very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable on what the tour covered. All the people in the duration of the tour knew them and that gave the tour a more authentic and welcoming vibe. Very good tour, very good guides, and a very good experience.

If anyone else comes to town, this is a tour I will always set up for them. To show them the real Tanzania.

This is a fantastic tour and a "must do" for any first time visitor to Dar, as I was.

It helps you understand more about the people who live in Dar and makes what can seem like a complex and intimidating place, accessible, friendly and understandable.

I went solo, a 50 something white woman, and me and _______ (I forget his name), rode around for 5 hours. It was a unbelievable experience.

He was a wonderful guide, I called him the "Mayor" because everybody knew him! He was so popular everywhere we went that I felt completely comfortable, safe, and like an invited family friend.

He showed me 3 or 4 neighborhoods, I met coffee makers, chapati breakfast cooks (had breakfast there with a Masaai family who stopped by!), a traditional herbalist (where I learned the treatment for meconium aspiration, I'm a perinatal pathologist!), herbal pharmacist (where I saw that fenugreek seed is used to facilitate delivery with prolonged labor), local market, fabric seller, and had a delicious lunch at an outside Swahili restaurant. I played with kids, talked with everyone, and really got a great sense of the community.

My guide also is very active in local projects and inspired me to help with a bridge rebuilding project he is spear heading. The bicycle riding was easy and really the only way to get around in these neighborhoods. It was by far the best experience I had in Dar, and one of the best I have had in my many travels in East Africa!
