Dar es Salaam (meaning, “the residence of peace”) is Tanzania’s largest and richest city located on the shores of the Indian Ocean. With its picturesque harbour, beautiful beaches and vibrant markets it is a popular tourist destination and international entry point for many of our overseas visitors.


The city  was founded in 1862 by the sultan of Zanzibar and over the last century has grown from a sleepy Zaramo fishing village into a thriving tropical metropolis of over four million people. Straddling some of the most important sea routes in the world, it is East Africa’s second-busiest port and Tanzania’s commercial hub. Today it is the second-fastest growing city in the world but it still a hidden charm which makes it a fascinating place to explore for a few hours or days!


Full day tours (7-8 hours) start at USD$75 for 3 or more persons and USD$170 for just 1 person.


Half day tours (3-5 hours) start at USD$75 per person for 2 or more and $100 for just 1 person.


Airport transfers to the city centre to begin a tour can be arranged and will be charged separately at USD$40 per person.


Special rates are available for groups and school children on request. Customers can also choose their own places of interest to visit which our expert guide will be happy to arrange.
