Follow the trail of the Sultans, slaves and explorers in the winding streets of Stone Town. Your guide will captivate you, retelling the events that shaped Zanzibar, leading you through the buildings where it all happened, like the former Slave Market and Anglican Cathedral, the House of Wonders and the Sultans’ Palace Museum, the Freddie Mercury House, the Old Arab Fort and Dispensary and many more.
While tracing the steps of the past, the walking tour provides you with a window into modern life in Stone Town. Explore the spice markets, fresh seafood piled in the fish market, fresh loaves of bread in wicker baskets and the neat stacks of fruit and vegetables as traders sell their wares from their stalls. Children play while men enjoy board games.
An optional stop at the Zanzibar Coffee House provides a rest from the heat and hustle and bustle. A selection of cold drinks, coﬀee, tea and local sweets & seasonal fruits act as the perfect ‘pick me up’. You can also try the street BBQ with an incredible selection of meat and seafood kebabs in the evening.
