Full description
We’ll take you to see many of the important sights of Stone Town. You’ll visit the former Slave Market, the Anglican Cathedral, the House of Wonders, the Sultan’s Palace Museum, the Old Arab Fort – and other sites that may be of interest to you. Our city tour is flexible and can easily be customized to your requirements.

Before heading out on the tour we’ll pick you up at your hotel and you’ll travel in an air-conditioned mini-van with your local guide as we explore this historic city.

You’ll re-trace the steps of past explorers on this tour that also provides a window into modern Stone Town life. With your guide you’ll explore the markets, and see seafood and fish piled high, fresh loaves of bread in wicker baskets and stacks of fruit and vegetables, as traders sell their goods from market stalls.

An optional stop is the Zanzibar Coffee House, where you can take a rest from the hustle and bustle and the heat. There’s a selection of drinks on offer here, as well as local sweets and seasonal fruits - the perfect pick-me-up before continuing on your tour!
