Stone Town, Zanzibar
This is a guided walk through colorful and alternating old town the UNESCO World Heritage site “Stone Town” with our knowledgeable guide(s) who knows funny, but also cruel stories to give a balanced picture of Stone Town’s history a visit to an Anglican Cathedral of Christ (a former Slave market chambers), House of Wonders, the Palace Museum (People's Palace), Darajani Market, St Joseph’s Catholic Cathedral, Dr Livingston's House and the Old Fort , you will also see Zanzibar's bustling market, winding alleyways, ornately carved and studded doors, two cathedrals and countless mosques amongst others.
Get introduced to Stone town , the famously known as a former capital of the Zanzibar Sultanate, and flourishing centre of the spice trade as well as the slave trade in the 19th century. Today there are over 16,000 people in the town, and over 1,700 recorded buildings. Tall houses line narrow alleyways set in a confusing maze radiating out from the centre towards the sea. The town is most often cacophonous; street-crossing is a gamble (to work out what is street and what is not is all part of the fun); the buildings are historic, architecturally beautiful and falling apart; electric and laundry cables are strung and hang chaotically between and around the structures and narrow streets; but above all else the town and its people are astoundingly welcoming and friendly. Stone Town has some excellent gift shops souvenirs and quite nice restaurant and where you can enjoy variety of cuisines .
We end our tour at Darajani Market an easy location you can access your trip-connections to where else you may want to go or should we return you back to your hotel.
