Taxi driver / airport transfers Zanzibar

I just came back from my holidays in Zanzibar and I would like to share with all of you fellow travellers my good experience.

If you are looking for a reliable way to move around (wheather to/from the airport or exploring) ASED IS WHO YOU ARE LOOKING FOR! :)

As a solo girl traveller, it's very important to feel safe: Ased demonstrated to be a great driver with very impressive people skills, he was born for this job and he does it with great passion.

He's a young man but very wose, personal and considerate.

You'll not regret choosing to let him drive because the streets in Zanzibar are "only for the braves" and with Ased you'll definetly be in safe hands.

It's very easy to contact him, very hard worker. Just drop him a message on WHATSAPP or give him a CALL on +255 65 584 6082

You'll thank me later 😜

I texted Ased to get from the airport to my hotel, he was waiting for me as we discussed. He was a good driver and a good company. I also decided to have a trip around the island and he took me to the north and stone town. He was a good company, good prices, good driver and a tour guide. He knew a lot about stone town and knew what to show me. I will contact him again on my way back to the airport for sure! I'm traveling by myself but felt safe with Ased!

Dear Friends,

We went to Zanzibar island in July 2016 with my bf. Thanks to Andrea, we contacted Ased (Actually, it is written as Aseid). First of all, he is a great guy. Very polite, gentlemen, a nice personality. He speaks English very well. He guided us for 3 days including transfers from airport to hotel and around with the best cheapest price on the island! He has good contacts all around island. Just ask for anything and he will make true :) He even bought me pineapple just because I found Zanzibar pineapples so yummy. You can contact him via his whatsapp, he will get back to you shortly (thats how we contacted him as well).

So, I strongly recommend Aseid for a great and safe Zanzibar island experience.

(He said, he will have a web page soon, I will post it here)

Cheers!

Dear friends,

During the first week of August I visited Zanzibar with my fiance' following the great advice of Andrea.

Asaed organized for us a three days tour, we swam with dolphins in Kizimkazi, we took selfies with Red Columbus Monkeys in Jozani Forest, we fed the oldest land turtles in Prison Island and water turtles in Nungwi, we saw Freddy Mercury's house in Stone Town and we finally had a drink in Nugwi beach observing a breathtaking romantic sunset. He did a very good price for the whole package, and I can assure you that the hotel guide tour would have charged us twice of what we paid.

I recommend to book with him already the airport pick-up because it will be safer and cheaper than what you find at the airport. Once you met him you can negotiate your package.

Asaed is very friendly and he is a very good driver that makes you feel safe in any moment.

Please contact him through Whatsapp he will reply to you immediately: +255 655 846 082

Enjoy!

I am currently in Zanzibar and staying at nungwi beach. Based on recommendations here I whatsapp Asaed n he was waiting for me at the airport. Nungwi in over an hour away but Asaed arranged safe cheap transport for me. We planned on spending a day in stone town so I contacted Asaed. He arranged again safe reliable transport to pick us up from Nungwi, arranged a trip to prison island, guide to stone town, recommended a nice place to have lunch, then took me to market to buy my mangoes , then spice tour, then safely back home. He knows everyone and can arrange anything n help u with everything. We were ladies traveling alone, so safety is always a concern but Asaed and his team took such good care of us. Tell him what u want to do n he will make a package deal. He takes me safely back to the airport to get back home on Sunday. Highly recommend him n thank u all for Asaed details
