Description

Get ready for a fascinating journey through Stone Town, Zanzibar, where you'll discover the town's geography, history, architecture, and culture. As you stroll through its narrow streets, you'll find more than 2000 limestone buildings. These streets cover an area the size of 14 football fields, and around 18,000 people live in the neighborhoods. Stone Town is like a mix of different cultures, including African, Arab, Indian, Persian, and European influences. Because it's so special, it's been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. A Melting Pot of Cultures: Zanzibar and Stone Town are like a big blend of cultures. During your adventure, you'll visit places like the Anglican Cathedral (which used to be a slave market), the House of Wonders (now a national museum under renovation), the Palace museum, the Old Fort, Darajani market, Hamamni Bath's street, Catholic Cathedral, Jaw's corner; Freddy Mercury's house, and you'll also experience the bustling streets, the lively market where people drink coffee, and the beautiful doors of Zanzibar. You'll see why Stone Town deserves to be called a World Heritage Site. Don't forget to explore the bazaar shops zone where local people shop for their everyday needs and a colorful market street. Custom-Made Experience: No matter if you're into history, culture, architecture, or shopping, our guides can adjust the tour to match your interests. They'll share stories, some funny and some sad, about how people lived and what the culture was like in old Stone Town. And when the tour ends, our guide will make sure you safely return to where you started the tour or where you first met. This tour is a delightful dive into Stone Town's rich diversity, where history and culture come together, waiting to be discovered and appreciated!
