Let your guide tell you about the events that shaped Zanzibar, leading you through the buildings where it all happened, such as the former Slave Market and Anglican Cathedral, the House of Wonders and the Sultans' Palace Museum, the Old Arab Fort and Dispensary.

While tracing the steps of the past, the walking tour provides you with a window into modern life in Stone Town. Explore the markets, seafood and fish 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 in the streets in the residential areas, mamas sit out and gossip while the men play board games. An optional stop at The Zanzibar Coffee House provides a rest from the heat and hustle and bustle. A selection of drinks, local sweets & seasonal fruits act as the perfect pick me up, for you to continue your tour.

The City Tour is very flexible and can be adapted suit your interest and time frame, if you're a shopaholic, culture vulture or history buff. If you want to hunt for antiques and souvenir

shops, follow David Livingstone's time in Zanzibar and walk the path of the slave trade, your guide can recommend and develop routes and itineraries that will optimize your time and get the most out of your trip.
