    Fun, educative and delicious

    The spice tour was enjoyable and so informative. We got to see all our favourite spices in their raw form and as plants. We also got to eat food made with the spices and enjoy a wonderful fruit platter that made the tour such a delight. Would highly recommend this tour as a must for in a trip to Zanzibar.
