Stone Town – City tour & shopping- (Half day)


This three & a half-hour tour commences with a visit to Zanzibar’s colorful market. Alive with
the buzz of locals bartering fresh vegetables and baskets of tropical fruit, amongst the heady
smell of Jack fruit (and many other exotic fruits) we continue on to the site of the cathedral built
in 1874. The cathedral signifies a potent time in Zanzibar’s history and stands on the sight of a
past slave market, its high altar standing on the exact site of the whipping post. Slavery was
abolished in 1873 through a decree passed by the then current Sultan of Zanzibar. From here we
visit the residence of the late Sultans of Zanzibar, ‘Tip Tip House’, the Old Fort, ‘Peoples Palace’
and the House of Wonders’, full of intrigue and vivid history from a bygone era. The tour ends
with a stroll through the narrow streets of the old stone town, the heart of Zanzibar’s vivacious
history with time for shopping.
        The tour could be in the morning or in the afternoon
