Would you like to experience Zanzibar culture and life, including its spices and food? The unique Stone Town Tour is for you.

Many tourists come to enjoy our beautiful beaches, but while visiting Zanzibar, we invite you to get to know our culture, our food, and our people.

Take a tour of the history, and of the present, in Stone Town, the cultural and historical heart of Zanzibar. Our experienced tour guides will connect you with local people and their culture. You will see that the city has changed very little in the past 200 years. It is a place of lively bazaars, mosques, alleys, and beautiful Arab houses.

Discover Zanzibar’s aromatic history on a half-day walking tour of Stone Town, setting out on foot through Stone Town’s narrow, car-free streets, and atmospheric corners. 

You will find a combination of Arabic, African, Indian and European cultures living together. As you walk through the streets, you will see mosques, churches, and temples.

With convenient pickup at Zanzibar hotels, our guide will take you on a historical and cultural journey through the Darajani marketplace, the House of Wonders, and the Sultan’s Palace.
You will see some of Stone Town’s highlights, from colonial landmarks to the Old Fort, the house where Freddy Mercury was born, and an Anglican Cathedral that marks the former site of a slave market.
