Overview of the tour in Zanzibar

This atmospheric and mystical town is the cultural and historical heart of Zanzibar. This is a half-day trip where you can visit a historical street constructed from coral stone during the 19th and 20th centuries.

It was declared a World Heritage Site in 2000. Stone Town is a very lively place where you’ll find a combination of Arabic, African, Indian, and European cultures living happily together.

As you walk through the labyrinth of streets that are too narrow for cars to pass, you can see mosques, churches, and temples side to side.

While you wander around the city, your guide will take you on a historical and cultural journey through the old slave market, the House of Wonders, the Old Fort, the Sultan’s Palace, and the Darajani marketplace. Also, it will include lunch in a restaurant or a local house, as agreed before.

Forodhani Gardens is also recommended to visit, especially at night when it comes alive as one of the best street food markets in East Africa.
