I booked the Dolphin and Turtle tour from Germany, which turned out to be a wise decision. Upon arrival in Zanzibar, I realized that the beach prices were not only higher but also seemed less reliable. The tour was absolutely amazing, with the chance to swim close to dolphins and turtles in their natural habitat. The professionalism of the guides and the overall experience exceeded my expectations. Pre-booking from my country was not only cost-effective but also ensured a stress-free experience.
