STONE TOWN TOUR
Have you ever wondered why the capital of Zanzibar called STONE Town? And do you want to know?
Then, come with us on this full day tour that will take you through the narrow alleyways of this world heritage site of Zanzibar. Stone Town, because it boasts of more than 2000 thousand buildings which are all made of lime stone, with a huge African, Arab, Indian and colonial influence. Zanzibar as is Stone Town is a truly cosmopolitan and after a visit to the Anglican Cathedral (former slave market), House of wonders (national museum), the Africa House (former British club), the Old fort, old dispensary, Tipu Tip house and yes, the Freddy Mercury house and not to forget the feel in the streets of the old town, the bazaar full of coffee drinkers, and yes, the beautiful doors of Zanzibar, you too will bear witness that Stone town is a cultural crossroad and that it is worthy of the world heritage title.
Take time to explore the markets, it’s very colourful where piles of sea food and fish await buyers.
Enjoy your guided walk in the residential area and see the famous Zanzibar doors, know the difference between an Indian house and Arab or Swahili house with children running from every direction and just playing about, the ladies are busy chitchatting with neighbours from their door steps while the wazee play bao games and sip the Swahili coffee in the morning or late after work.
Whether you are interested in culture, renovation work, history or just a shopaholic your guide adapt to your needs to make sure that you learn something from this trip and that you enjoy it to the maximum.
