What people are saying about Robben Island

The agency organising the trip charged excessive prices, croocked.

Very absurd level of service from the travel agent. Firstly, the way the package was structured. They only provide pick up transport and no drop off. We had to end up driving ourselves to and from waterfront. The cost of the actual Robben island tour was R340 per person and we ended up paying R1400 as a couple. Which is almost 100% profit markup. We confronted the agent about it. We got nothing but utter unprofessionalism. Customer service is really questionable from this agency, the tour guide was clueless about the history behind the tour, he did not know who Christo Brand was. This is a huge mockery since we had just met the man 2mins after we asked him that question. In closing, we did not receive value for money. Complete rip-off!!!!!!!

Township was completely different but touching experience.

During the visit at the township local guide not only provided with historical background and facts but also showed a true and real face of township life. Would highly recommend to go for the tour, as only after seeing it you can understand Cape town city and its history fully. Furthermore, people at the township were friendly and made us feel welcomed. Our tour to Robben island was cancelled twice due to bad weather (wind and big waives), therefore, recommend to do it in the morning.

A unique and very educational experience

These tours were very enjoyable, very enlightening and gave us a new perspective on both the townships and Robben Island. We came away with a new view on the excellent work being done to improve the lives and conditions in the Townships and huge respect for the people who were held on Robben Island. Nelson Mandela always had our respect but he was not alone and all prisoners on the island deserve the same respect. Congratulations on a very educational tour
