This guided tour offers a walk down memory lane where clove trees were introduced in 1818 and formed the main trade for the island, becoming known as the 'gold' of Zanzibar. Drive through the small farms in the rural area and soak up the smells of a myriad of various spices that grow here: cloves, vanilla, nutmeg, cardamom and other spices, medicinal and ornamental plants, and tropical fruits. This tour provides a rare experience to prove why Zanzibar is referred to as the “Spice Island”.

Along the route you can visit the Maruhubi Palace, built by Sultan Bargash in 1880, to house his harem. It also include a visit to the Persian Baths build in 1850 by Seyyid Said bin Sultan (first Sultan of Zanzibar) for his wife Princes Shehrzard (grand-daughter of Fateh Ali Shah of Persia.
