Immerse yourself and follow the trail of the sultans, queens, slaves and explorers in the winding streets of Stone Town. Your guide will tell you about the events that shaped the deep history and culture of Zanzibar, leading you through the buildings where it all happened, such as the former Slave Market and Anglican Cathedral, the House of Wonders, the Sultans’ Palace Museum, the Old Arab Fort and Old 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.
After the City Tour you have the option of visiting the Freddie Mercury Museum, located in his last home before he left the isles. This comes at an extra cost of $10 per person (to be paid at the entrance of the Museum). Learn about the prolific life of the star, and the time he spent in Zanzibar during his early childhood on his birth island, and the events which made the star we all know and love.
