Stone town tour

Stone Town is the old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar, little changed in the last 200 years. It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques
and grand Arab houses whose original owners vied with each other over the extravagance of their dwellings. This one-upmanship is particularly
reflected in the brass-studded, carved, wooden doors -there are more than 500 different examples of this handiwork. You can spend many idle hours
and days just wandering through the fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.

This is a walking tour that takes you through fabled Stone Town, where history appears to stand still. With visits to the House of Wonders, the former slave market for East African Slave trade, and the Arab Fort
amongst others, itis a fascinating look at the essence of Zanzibar. The architectural style of Stone town buildings is a unique mixture of various influences and culture. You will see Zanzibar’s bustling market, winding alleyways, ornately carved and studded doors, two cathedrals and countless mosques!
