Private tour agency or do it myself?
Hello fellow traveler’s,
My BF and I are going to Tanzania in October of this year, 2021. We got a screaming deal on flights, so we are going! We have traveled some (Europe), but this will be our first time in Africa and also so different culturally.
I have my itinerary done and have submitted it to several different agencies based in Tanzania to give me quotes on our trip. What we want is a private tour. I have gotten 2 quotes back and I am a bit shocked at the prices being quoted to me. I thought using a local agency based in Tanzania, that it would be less expensive. I am not finding that to be the case.
I have heard back from few, one is Luxury – Andbeyond. I have a couple more I am waiting to hear back from.
My question is, should we go it alone? Should I just book all hotels myself, and may be get a guide from Arusha?
What would people here suggest?
