Zanzibar Stone Town Tour - Half Day Excursion
The Stone Town tour is a 3-hour guided tour that begins and ends up at your hotel where you will walk/driven to the city market. While in town, you will see a tiny and dingy room where slaves were kept before reaching the auction table in the old slave market. Then, proceed to the National Museum of Zanzibar to see many interesting relics from the time of the Sultans and the early explores in Zanzibar.
The tour then proceeds along the beach road up to Forodhani Gardens where you will visit Stone Town’s many historical sites, including the Old British Consulate, the Arab Fort built in 1700, the House of Wonders built in 1883, and the National Museum, home to many of Zanzibar's memorabilia, including Livingstone's medical chest, a piece of East Africa’s first railroad, and an old, palm oil-powered bicycle lamp. A visit to the Sultan Palace Museum will show you the life of the royal family back in the days of the Sultans.
