Interesting tour. It seems that it could have been a bit more developed. Maputo still seems to be in the early days of developing tourism.

I've been to Maputo 3 times and it's never a dull moment. Sure is not a world class city, but the people are great and welcoming, and it's always fun. Definetly one of the best cities to party at.

Maputo is not a rich city. The best way to see the city highlights is through a city tour. Our guide was able to give us lots of history on not only the country and the city but also the people. He took us to all the major landmarks as well as several markets. He even negotiated prices for some... More

The attractions include -craft market, history museum, train station, the Fortress, Iron house, Independence Hall, Catholic Church and central market.

Our ship docked at Moputo long enough to get a glimpse of this once glamorous resort for the rich and famous. It's intent is cleary to recapure it's former glory but the struggle is a slow one. Portugese colonialism is evident everywhere. Many of the monuments and attractions are under "Military or State Defense" and picture taking is strictly forbidden.... More

We did not feel safe in Maputo. The traffic was a mess. People just drive the way they want, and we have to watch every car to see witch direction they are going and also not be be involved in a accident. lucky nothing happened. Just keep your eye's open for sellers on the road.

I had the worst experience in this city, hotels were in dodgy locations yet so insanely expensive. ship tours are a nightmare, tourist are not considered as important because they don't speak Portuguese. communication was a huge problem. people who work in ports and malls can't even speak English, which made it hard for us to get useful information.

We were visiting Maputo on the MSC Opera on 16 December 2014 and had to be grounded for 3 days in Maputo due to bad weather. The city tour from the ship cost us $39 per person for about 2.5hours around Maputo with a guide.. I think that was fairly expensive as it just covered 2 nearby markets and sites... More
