What You Can Expect
both aspects of the day were eye opening and moving everyone should make these outstanding visits
This tour was educational. Very sobering. Highly recommended
Van trip around Cape Town was very well done. Driver / trip leader was well informed about the area. Seeing District 6 first hand through the museum was very graphic. The visit to the Township was enlightening -- a amount of poverty is overwhelming.
The ferry ride to Robbin Island was fun to see Cape Town from another angle. It is hard to believe that Nelson Mandela could survive living there for all the years he did. It really showed the strength of his convictions to free the blacks.
Excellent tour of the old city and a visit to a township.
Fantastic tour, highly recommended A to our tour guide.The way the tour is planned is excellent as you go to District 6 Museum first and are told about what happened when apartheid came into force in 1948, then visit a township and then spend the afternoon on Robben Island where you learn about how political prisoners where treated and got to see and walk the same halls of nelson Mandela amazing.
Fantastic tour, highly recommended! The way the tour is planned is excellent as you go to District 6 Museum first and are told about what happened when apartheid came into force in 1948, you then visit a township and can see for yourselves the accommodation black people were moved to and then spend the afternoon on Robben Island where you learn about how political prisoners where treated. A real eye opener.
The tour guide was just wonderful. Andyley was very knowledgeable and made us feel very safe.
This was a great tour which gave us the history of the townships and life for all under apartheid. It was well organised and the guide was first class. He was able to answer all our questions and took us for an intimate tour of the township. The township people were welcoming and as curious as we were and the children like all children were friendly welcoming and wanting us to interact with them.
It was a very educational tour of Cape Town, it's history and seeing a side of Cape town that is not normally seen. Glad we pre-booked. Would recommend it to anyone who is visiting Cape Town.

The whole day tour gave you a great understanding about the formation of Cape Town from the mid 1600's up until today. It explain the government ruling and living standards from the Dutch, colored folks, and Blacks. The Langa Township tour was amazing to see. It was hard to witness the very poor living in the shanty town homes, hostels now turned into family communinal housing, the one bedroom home, and then the more affluent people living in a house with two bedrooms and a garage. What was definitely of note was they all lived near or next door to each other.
Robben Island was a 25 minute boat ride out to the island. The first hour bus ride drove you around to various places on the island. It showed you the leper colony, military cannons, limestone quarry where many prison mates worked while encampment. The second hour was a walking tour inside the prison. The tour was given by an actual prisoner. He told us his story about being sent there because of political reasons. He was sentenced to 25 years but was released after apartheid. You also got to see the cell where Nelson Mandela was housed and the other 12 objectors holdings.
A must see tour if you want to witness past history.
