Allow us to provide you with a city tour with the locals’ experts, who are still living in the area to reveal things that you would without a doubt miss on your own.  Once an ancient maze of rich slave owners and business trader has now converted into narrow streets of markets, shops and craft centres. Stone Town was once a host to one of the world’s last open slave markets and stories of cruelty still strike at the conscience.
