What people are saying about Robben Island

Enjoyed the ferry ride and the tour was very informative

I enjoyed the tour as if it was for the first time, I came 2018 December with my hubby and kids. Now I took my mom for a holiday, she can't stop talking about the Robben Island tour is a dream come true. This is one place all human beings or South Africans need to visit in their life time, after visiting this place you feel WHOLE.

This tour was eye opening and very unique experience.

If you want to get out of your comfortable hotel, meet a few real South Africans on a personal level and better understand how folks are living in the Townships...then this tour is for you. Sam and his team provide a professional, candid and genuine visit to Langa. We left better understanding the history and daily struggles. Robben Island was also a moving experience that is a testament to the human spirit. We would highly recommend Sam's Cultural Tours.

Cape Town: Private Tour with Robben Island & Table Mountain Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 04/09/2018

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
