This company covers unusual ground. For example, the Ghost Tour takes you to reputedly haunted locations as a way of understanding the history of the slave trade; the Cooking Workshop includes market shopping followed by hands-on learning in a local kitchen; and various Heritage Tours focus on Stone Town's history, culture, architecture, religious buildings and so on.

At the time of research, Kawa Tours was in the process of changing its name, although guides will still be drawn from the affiliated Kawa Training Center (which helps locals find employment in the tourism industry) and Heritage Guide Association (including, unusually for Zanzibar, several female guides).
