Tour description

Stone Town is a historical part of Zanzibar where a melting pot of races, religions, and cultures gave birth. It is a beating heart in which the thriving cultures and civilizations that flourished for centuries still exist in the cultures, religions, and architectures.

Walking in stone town is an evidence of exploring the heyday of stone town when it was a cosmopolitan society and a place for fortunes

I'm taking this opportunity as a female guide in Zanzibar to show you my beautiful city of stone town (UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE)that was once a thriving center for spices, slaves trade, ivory and a gate away to Africa.
