Guides were very important to understanding this tour. Our morning guide tookus through the apartheid connection and the township visit. As a township resident his experience was very important to our understanding. The afternoon visit to Robben Island was outstanding and the guide to the prison was a former inmate so we had a better undertstanding of conditions. ALL IN ALL AN EXCEPTIONAL DAY OUT.
Amazing day. Inspiring and sad too. Met a lovely gentleman named Lionel who actually served time in the prison with Nelson Mandela! No amount of money could buy the chat we had. Tour guides excellent
I thought I had already submitted this while we were still in south Africa, but it may have not gone through. The tour was wonderful. Our guide Phillip, was superb, as was the guide through the township. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Joan Wright
We had an amazing tour guide Colin who gave us a very informative tour. Thank you for a great trip!!
Really great full day - I was lucky enough to be collected directly from the apartment I was staying which was very helpful. Great full day visiting Bo Kaap, District Six and the District Six museum, then to the township of Langa. We were then taken to the V and A waterfront to board the ferry to head over to Robben Island - unfortunately I had to hand around and wait for 2 hours as my ferry was booked for 2 hours later than the rest of the group. I was on the 6pm ferry back from Robben Island so arrived back quite late at 7pm then had to find my own way back to my accommodation even though the tour said it would return back to patrons accom'. All in all, was a great day with informative guide.
The walking part in the Township and museum was excellent. The guide gave a very honest yet around overview of life in the Township. Walking through the streets, meeting the artists and going into one of the homes really brought it all together. The Robben island part was just okay, due to not fault of Viator. The ferry did not leave on time and the staff at Robben island was disorganized. If you are going in the afternoon, do not schedule an early evening dinner or event. One could not count on when you'll get back. it was convenient viator packaged all of this for you. Guide on the bus was excellent and supportive to everyone throughout.
Great day, highlights were District 6 museum and Robben Island, so much history and feeling, a must do when in Cape Town
Best part of the tour was Robben Island. Our bus guide and prison guide were phenomenal! The Langa tour guide was great as well. The District 6 was that great mainly because the guide only gave a 5 minute overview of the museum and 20 minutes for us to tour alone. Not enough time at all to experience it.
This was a very interesting must do trip
The guide Adil was excellent - picked us up from our hotel exactly when he said he would.
Took us to all the interesting places to see in Cape town - very knowledgeable. The township tour was quite distressing to see people living like that, but a must for anyone visiting south africa I think, Robbin Island was good but the guide there spoke for too long. Adil waited for us to meet us from the boat back from Robbin Island and drove us back to the hotel. A really great day out - thank you
The tour itself was great. Robben Island was great. Langa might be a very different experience for the ones who want to see a different Cape Town, but although our tour includes drop off option for our hotel, local tour left us at the waterfront area. I think there are communication problems by and between local tours and Viator.
