What people are saying about Robben Island

Great township-tour, high recomendation!

Great tour with very interesting insight into history and live nowdays. Great guides, well organized and perfectly on time. We were concerned at first if it is ok to visit townships as a tourist, in order not to be a kin d of poverty-sightseer, but this concernes were all quicly dispelled, we hat the impression that people in townships aprechiate the interest and attention (and of course money) these tours bring and we had a very impressive tour and only plesant encounters in this area. the robben island tour was unfortunately cancelled due to heavy winds, but it was no problem to rescedule or to get a refund.

It was an emotional, but remarkable tour MUST SEE!

The ferry made me motion sick it was rocking back and forth a lot so if you have motion sickness it’s recikkended you take pills. When we arrived at the island the 1st part of the tour was ok a bus where they stopped and explained buildings within the camp. I couldn’t get good pictures due tothe windows and other passengers on the bus. The best part of the tour was getting the story told from someone who was actually a prisoner on the island. It was very heart felt. He was an open book and although his story is sad he did not make you pity him because he made it clear that he has forgiven those who oppressed him and he just wants to make sure the story is told correctly. He did an outstanding job holding the crowd attention but also being personable I would strongly recommend this tour

Super tour and super guides. We are fully satisfied.

We enjoyed every minute of the tour which was very well organised. We chose the service through other travelers' advice and shall recommend it ourselves. As regard the next question, we were not even asked to present our voucher.

Tylor was excellent - informative, knowledgeable, patient, pleasant

Unfortunately weather required visit to Robben Island be postponed a day and Tylor immediately improvised with "Plan B" which ended up being very well-spent day. He is knowledgeable with local history and customs, and made it a really pleasurable day. This is our first visit to South Africa!

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.
