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.
