Zanzibar Stone Town Tour
The Stone Town Tour is a half day (4 hour) tour which begins at a central location in Stone Town. It is a fascinating excursion that winds through narrow bustling streets and alleyways to the fish and former slave markets, consulates, the Old Fort, the House of Wonders and other historical sites.
You start the tour at the main market which opened in 1904. From there you will proceed to the Anglican Cathedral at Mkunazini built by Bishop Streers in 1874 on the site of a former slave market.
Next you will visit the National Museum of Zanzibar, followed by the Forodhani Gardens where you will see the former British Consulate, Old Fort built by the Portuguese and the House of Wonders known locally as ‘Beit-El-Ajaib” and built by the Sultan.
You will walk around the narrow streets of Stone Town where most of the houses date back more than 150 years and you will see many bazaars, curio shops & restaurants. From here you will visit Dr. Livingstone’s House at the edge of the city. The last stop of the Zanzibar Stone Town Tour is at Marahubi where you will see Palace Ruins and Persian Baths built by Sultans in the 1800’s.
The whole tour highlights the Arab, Indian, Persian and European influences on this vibrant city and is both interesting and enjoyable to all.
