You’ll re-trace the steps of past explorers on this tour that also provides a window into modern Stone Town life. With your guide you’ll explore the markets, and see seafood and fish piled high, fresh loaves of bread in wicker baskets and stacks of fruit and vegetables, as traders sell their goods from market stalls.
