Full-Day Stone Town and Prison Island Tour in Zanzibar

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your Zanzibar hotel for a 9am start, and begin your tour on a 3-hour walking tour of the UNESCO-listed Stone Town. Follow narrow streets lined with plastered buildings and elaborate Zanzibar doors, and find out how cultures from around the world blended in this coastal trading town.
    Pass some of Stone Town’s 49 mosques, historic Christian churches and Hindu temples, and see distinctive, two-story private homes. Visit the architectural highlights of the area, from The Old Fort to the towering House of Wonders. Pass the former Sultan’s Palace, a Roman Catholic cathedral, and the waterfront Old Dispensary.
    Board a motorized boat for Changuu, a picture-perfect tropical island with a tragic legacy of slave internment, prisons, and cholera. Take in white sandy beaches and a forest that’s filled with wildlife, and spot the slow-moving giant tortoises that roam the island. Finish the tour with return transfer to your hotel, arriving by early evening.

    This was a day trip from our hotel, there are limited things to see as most of the history is gone, but the large tortoise's are amazing some up to 189 years old and large, you get to be up close to them

    I was fascinated the island itself, real paradise.. And i was thinking they are ”protecting“ the tortoises around but as i made a research i found out that they only make money out of them.. So sad, that they don’t even get proper health assistance...More
