Loved the trip to Robben Island. Very interesting and moving. City tour was really great too.
We had a wonderful time, our guide was Gary he was very informative and fun to be with. The Robben Island tour was very powerful. I would recommend the tour to anyone.
Our guide was excellent! The Robben Island tour is a must do and Table Mountain was spectacular!
The tor was amazing and Avril the guide was incredible
It was a very good trip..... the travel to the island in ferry was really awesome!! We enjoyed it!!
I feel the time spent on the island was a bit rushed as there was much to discover. I would have liked to have more details. A little walkabout could be added in future visits.
Great way to see everything you need to see in Cape Town in one day. You'll visit Robben Island in the morning without the guide, therfore you are alone on the ferry and join a large group on Robben Isalnd and at around 1 pm, you'll meet your guide again at a parking lot. Then you are off to vist the Castle of Good Hope, some museum and then you are suppose to see Table Mountain which we didn't due to the fog.
Robbin Island was great, however it felt like the afternoon was being filled up with alternative activities because some of the options were not available.
The driver came to get us and he was very nice and friendly. He walked us to the port to catch the boat to Robben island and you need to stick together with the other folks in your group so you all get back on the same boat back.
We then met the driver, I think his name was Alone?, and we drove to Table Mtn. This tour is cheaper than some others because they do not include the ticket to go up the cable car. What a huge mistake! Had we known how important it was to get the tickets ahead of time we may have bought them in advance. Three of us were trying to buy tickets via the phone and could not, login issues etc. So we waited, and waited for over one hour to get the ticket to go up. The 20 price of the ticket was a waste as we only had a very fast 45 minutes up there. Had we had our tickets in advance then I would recommend at least 75 minutes up there to really enjoy the space.
We then did a driving tour of the central city and stopped to get out in front of the government building near the fort. After we visited the brightly decorated area of Boku I think and had some time to look at the houses.
For the 5 people on the tour who had no tickets to get to the top, we were all very dissatisfied about this unexpected issue.We feel like waiting in line for an hour was a big waste of our limited time.
Waste of money, get your act together. Guide turned up more than an hour late, 15 minutes at table mountain after travelling 6000 miles to see it. Short tour of city in a rush, dumped at 12 for lunch to catch ferry at 1pm for robben island. Poor, poor, poor. Worst ever tour in 38 years of travel.
