Nice if you like historic sites

Okay. Not the most fun tour I've been on. But worth it if you looking for something to pass time. Have to pay for a ticket at the door. Not that expensive.

We took finding the Persian Baths as a challenge after we had done our walking tour, and a challenge it was! Wandering around Stone Town is lots of fun, and you can't help but get lost. Once we finally found the baths (with some help) we got a great tour from one of the staff there. They are very knowledgeable... More

This is one of the few places we visited. It was operational with a guide. He brought the story alive with his full description of the use of the baths. Where the Sultan entertained his colleagues. We went upstairs to view the architecture of the roof and saw views of the area

Although the entrante fee is farely cheap, they facilities are in need of serious preservation or restoration. If you go with a guide is probable better, because there are just a few signs explaining what you are looking at and they are not very extensive, so you have to imagine most of what was going on there.

Ended up here by accident, interesting place to see the baths or the royals of Oman .. the entrance fee includes a guide and is certainly worth the visit

Not easy to find and someone stop us and said he would take us as the person in charge wasn't there. When we got there the person came back and gave us a tour of the inside and room. Not a lot to see but somewhat interesting. After the tour, the man said he was poor and can we give... More

One website indicated that the entrance fee was only 500 ZSH but when I reached the place the attendant insisted it was 5,000 ZSH - not sure if this was another Zanzibar scam. But I paid it as I was intrigued to see inside this historic building. Sadly the inside really is just a shell of a building. There are... More

Don't expect much as you enter this former Persian bath. You can wander around the various rooms and try to imagine what it might have looked like in the past. Worth a visit if you happen to pass it as you explore Stone Town. 1000 TSH entry fee (50 cents USD).

The price of this place is highly negotiable but whatever you pay it's probably too much as there's nothing really to see inside beyond what you can see from the entrance

Absolutely nothing worth seeing...please don't waste your time visiting this place. At the end of the tour, all we asked ourselves was- " is that it?" I was disappointed. Dirty, unpleasant place
