As a kid I did a project on the spice islands of Zanzibar and finally in june I got to go to Zanzibar. I loved the spice tour, incredible to see household items, we buy in small packets, growing on huge trees and dangling from creepers! The spice tour guides are wonderful, they really go all out! We were not just informed and shown around, but beautuful banana leaf bags and hairpieces and ties fot the guys were given to us along the way. A mini market at the end was fantastic and very reasonable. They sold spices, vanilla cloves etc also perfume essence and soaps. I was particularly happy to also find packets of hibiscus tea, you have to try it, it is delicious. I deffinately recommend this excursion when in Zanzibar Tanzania.
