I visited in July 2015
Limited by time, all we had was three days for sightseeing. My personal aim was to photograph and see as much wildlife without extensive travelling involved. Coming from Arusha, Classic tours organised a three day trip with a different park for each day.
First day was at Tarangire which I highly recommend. Not as busy as Ngorongoro it had a varied landscape which I found as a bonus. Big game was abundant. Among the most common species I was impressed with the abundance of elephants and giraffes which were approachable. Also they have a safari lodge with a wonderful scenic view.
Ngorongoro has a wonderful landscape and abundant wildlife too. Only drawback too much tourists.
I found Lake Manyara beautiful, too, with its rich vegetation and aquatic bird life. But its drawback was that it was too hard too spot game with thick vegetation.
Overall I recommend Classic tours since they were trustworthy and kept their word on what was agreed. They provided a very competent driver who was knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely go again with Classic tours for another safari trip.
