What People Are Saying About Robben Island
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
The day was broken into two parts: Township tour and then Robben Island tour. Our guide for the Township was a local resident who also was politically involved in advocating for the township, so it was great to hear his perspective and we felt like we were getting a true idea of the challenges that were being faced by the residents. The Robben Island tour included a ferry back and forth, a bus tour around to major areas of the island, and then an ex-inmate talking about life in the prison. It was very well put together and well worth the trip out there to experience the setting.
There was a lot of information which everyone who wants to understand where South Africa has come from needs to know. It was presented clearly and with feeling.
Being a South African I know that the township tour was not accurate about how things really are in a township. I feel the pre primary school visit does not depict majority of kids in South Africa's oppertunity to learn
Very insightful tour about the life in the townships of Cape Town. On Sundays you get to visit a methodist church before the tour of the township. The company respects its population and I appreciated the fact the group was small for a more intimate experience.
