Emotional, sad & heartbroken to hear/see Sobukwe house/prison....and the story behind.... Wish we should have seen it inside, the same as Mandela's & his fellows..... Standing & listening in the scorching sun after disembarking barking from buses was a little bit to much.... Cells visit & the story behind was too short Registers/time book, boots, etc (in 1 of the 'offices' were never explained The narration was one-sided/focused more on Rivonia Trialists We were told more about Cell No 4 & nothing about Cells 1-3, 5-????? occupants

This trip was fantastic. The guide was very knowledgeable, the transport was on time and well organised. The trip followed Covid guidelines. Our ferry crossing had to be rescheduled due to bad weather but the company dealt with this quickly and efficiently to ensure we were able to transfer our tickets to a different day. I would highly recommend this trip.

It was a great experience but I wish we could enter Mr Mandela’s cell. Also, I felt the numbers may have been too much for the tour guide, there was no control when touring the prison cells, the numbers were too much.

The whole tour was amazing! We visited a lot of places I haven’t heard before, our tour guide John drove us and told a lot of history information about South Africa! Highly recommended!

Prepare yourself to have a long and satisfying day! Our guide, I think his name is Yoyo, was absolutely amazing! He is very knowledgeable and super friendly!
