Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It was my second time but my family was first time. My children were very very happy as they the natural plane and the natural ship. The guide was very good.

    I visited Tanga primary to see its history in the First World War. This small museum is one of the only remaining monuments to that period of history. While the museum is underwhelming, it possesses some interesting photos of German East Africa—its administration and economy. The tour guide was pleasant and informative. The tour and admission cost $10000 TZ Shillings (2022)
    There is no gift shop. Museum located behind the Tanga Library on Independence Street.
    Nice stop for anyone visiting the area for more than one day.

    Thanks to Mahmoud we had an unforgettable stay at the Usumbara Mountains. He managed to make everyone happy in our group. 5 adults and 5 kids (between 6 years and 13 years old). The hikes he did with us were just the right amount of challenge for everyone (rainforest, waterfalls and Irente viewpoint). He provided delicious lunches. One homemade and one at Irente farm. He was very kind and had a lot of knowledge aubout the history of Tanzania and the nature. He has an incredible talent for spotting chameleons and snakes.

    We certainly recommend this company. The guides are very friendly, they know a lot and give a lot of explanations. Everything was well organized.
    It was a great experience!

    We have selected this company as organizer and service provider of our climb to Kilimanjaro mountain. Everything was well organized. Staff was friendly, polite and helpful. 10/10 We probably would not make it to the summit without experienced guides.

    Elias guided us great and safely through his homeland the usambara mountains. After a short briefing and introduction what to expect in the region, we started our four day trip. He planned the tour very well, informed us each day before about the next upcoming day trip and adapted to our needs and our physical conditions. So our day trips became a little shorter than planned but still all highlights were included. He provided us with good knowledge (geology, medical plants, animals) and food like a picnic of freshly made guacamole and Chapatti with seasonal fruits or a lunch at a local place.
    It was a wonderful experience in this beautiful landscape many tourists overlook! Thank you for your expertise!

    My family went to Tanzania this past summer and had the most amazing experience. Meeting Daudi and having him as a guide only made it better! Daudi has an answer for every question and knows every fact imaginable on all things Africa. I truly learned so much from him and would recommend Daudi to anyone planning on making the trip. In a few short days he became part of our family and I wouldn't have traded our time with him for anything.

    We booked 3 days Mikumi Safari With Travel With Brighton and everything was perfect. The communication with Brighton went very well, the services provided were very good the car, food, lodges
    Our guide and driver, Frank was a very nice and calm guy, he took care of all our needs and requests. Also, he went out of his way to find all the animals we wanted to see, including lions, and we felt very safe and secure with him.
    All in all, we had an amazing time and we definitely recommend Travel With Brighton to anyone who wants a similar experience at a reasonable price.
