Alison & Ben, South Hampton, UK about their Zanzibar Honeymoon

22 Nov 2009
We visited Zanzibar for our honeymoon and it was fascinating! Every aspect of our trip was well planned and we appreciated the special attention to detail that went into planning our honeymoon. We stayed at Blue Bay Beach Resort on the east coast of the island and everything was planned perfectly down to the smallest detail. Thank you for making our honeymoon a great start to our married life.
