The tour takes you to the former site of the slave market; the cathedral (Cathedral Church of Christ) built in its site in 1874, the Sultan’s palace (Palace Museum) ,House of Wonders, and Arab Fort and natural museum where you will have enough time to explore these historical monuments. You will also see Zanzibar’s bustling market, winding alleyways, ornately carved and studded doors.

UNESCO has recently declared Stone Town as one of the world’s historic cities, and it’s now a protected area in Zanzibar. After the Stone Town Tour, our guide will drop you off at the restaurant for lunch (Own account and to be paid directly at the restaurant).

In the afternoon, proceed to the wharf to catch a local boat (with outboard engine) to visit Changuu (prison) Island. Changuu is charming little Island which is located about 5 km off to Zanzibar Stone Town and is about half an hour boat ride from Stone Town. This used to be a private place of detention for recalcitrant slaves. The island has the added attraction of several giant aldabra tortoises and beautiful peacocks which are living and breeding on the Island.

You can stretch out and relax after your excursions and snorkel or just enjoy the white sandy beach. Return to Zanzibar Stone Town in the evening.
