The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stone Town boasts African, Indian, European and Arabic influences, making it a beguiling place to explore. This half-day private tour takes you to all the highlights while your guide regales you with stories of famous inhabitants. Then polish your haggling skills at the famous shopping area with the help of your guide.

The historical buildings and winding streets will be the setting for this private tour. Your own guide will show you around while pointing out landmarks such as Darajani Market, the main bazaar in Zanzibar, as well as the former slave market and Forodhani Gardens where you'll be greeted by views over the House of Wonders – a former sultan's palace.

Meanwhile your guide will fill you in on popular inhabitants such as Princess Salme, Farrokh Bulsara and Bi Kidude. Last but not least, you'll pass by the Old Fort before finishing up with some craft and souvenir shopping.
