What people are saying about V&A Waterfront

Fascinating, sobering, saddening, optimistic experience

I remember the dreadful days of apartheid and reading about the sentences given to brave people who fought for basic civil rights in their own homeland. I’m proud that an Australian Prime Minister, Bob Hawke, was instrumental in the embargoes that helped finally break this hideous regime. Mandela was but one of the heroic souls who endured and the wives and children knew tremendous suffering too. A sobering, saddening but ultimately inspiring experience.

Interesting tour of the penal island and prison.

Tour combined a boat trip from Cape Town with a bus tour of the island and a foot tour of the prison where Nelson Mandela was held for most of his life. The prison tour led by a former political prisoner. The tour is a must for all believers in personal liberty and democracy. It gives an insight into the life of the man who gave up so much for the freedom of his people, and did so much to bring his country together.

Everything went well however very much over priced

Too expensive! Face value of the Robbenisland ticket is 360 Rand, approx. € 22,50. We paid €98,06 for 2 tickets. An uber ride from hotel to the ferry is about €4,00. So the real expences were €49,00. Shame on the broker. The Robbenisland tour was excellent! But that is not the broker doing that!

Entire experience was excellent and educational.

Pick up directions unclear, said pick up at 11:15. We waited until 11:35 and the Ubered to the port. Driver called us at 11:40 and said he was at our hotel and that the pick Up time was 11:15 to 11:45. Very confusing. But eventually straightened out and didn’t harm the overall experience.

Very interesting and well organised trip

Only problem is that the bus driver left me at the ferry and I assumed that the tour company was picking me up from the returning ferry but when I docked there was nobody there to drop me back to the hotel and I had to walk
