After breakfast we are expected by our guide for a Stone Town tour. Originally this was not proposed by our travel agency, we would have spent our entire time on Zanzibar at the beach. We really would have missed something! Good that we asked our agency to include some time in Stone Town.
Our guide was excellent and led us for four or even five hours through the tiny streets and explained and showed us a lot of things. If we had tried to visit Stone Town on ourselves with a guide book we would have seen much less and would not have understood many things we would have seen.
At the end of the tour we visited the "House of Wonders". It used to be administration but today it is a museum. The house has its name due to three miraculous things you could find there: tap water, electricity and even an elevator
Directly after our city tour we get picked up again and drive across the whole island north where we will spend three last nights at the beach (Langi Langi Beach Hotel). We arrive in the afternoon and go into the ocean the first time. The water has almost the temperature of a bath tub.
