    Stone Town is the old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar where little has changed in the last 200 years. It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses whose original owners vied with each other over the extravagance of their dwellings. This one-upmanship is particularly reflected in the brass-studded, carved, wooden doors – there are more than 500 different examples of this handiwork. You can spend many idle hours and days just wandering through the fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.

    This is a walking tour that takes you through the fabled Stone Town, where history appears to stand still. We’ll visit the House of Wonders, the former slave market for the East African Slave trade, and the Arab Fort, amongst others, taking a fascinating look at the essence of Zanzibar.

    You will see Zanzibar’s bustling market, winding alleyways, ornately carved and studded doors, two cathedrals and countless mosques! Stone Town also has some excellent gift shops with plenty of souvenirs and handicrafts to choose from.

    Your knowledgeable tour guide will entertain you with not only funny stories of Stone Town but also cruel stories that tell about life in the old times of Stone Town.

    This half-day trip includes the guide and all entrance fees.

    Suggested itinerary:

    Visit the Anglican Church, built by Bishop Steers in 1874. Visit the Sultan Palace Museum, House of Wonders & the central market. Visit the Peace Memorial Museum.
