Its primary objective is to give you a complete picture as to why this beautiful island is known as "The Spice Island"

Our tour starts with a drive through a profusion of greenery in the countryside seeing, smelling and tasting a variety of spices and mouth-watering tropical seasonal fruits such as jack fruit, pineapple, banana, green coconut juice, dourian, love apple, litche, soursop etc.

Spices such as cloves, cardamon, cinnamon, black pepper, turmeric, vanilla, and nutmeg - are as exotic as the flavour….etc.

A full tour involves much more than spices, and you will also have a chance to see the iodine plant, heena bush, ylang-ylang, the lipstick tree, cocoa, and coffee trees.

The tour also includes a visit to
»Kidichi Persian Baths built in 1850 by Seyyid Said bin Sultan for his Persian wife Princess Sheherezade granddaughter of the Shah of Persia.
»Maruhubi Palace Ruins built by the third Sultan of Zanzibar Seyyid Barghash for his concubines.
»Dr Livingstone’s House built in 1860 for Sultan Majid. Dr David Livingstone lived here before commencing his last journey to the mainland interior.
