  • Robben Island Ferry Ticket and Township Combo Tour

    1. Robben Island Ferry Ticket and Township Combo Tour

    Explore District Six, where 60,000 inhabitants were forcibly removed during the 1970s by the apartheid regime. Drive to Langa and learn the history of the oldest township at sites like the Old Pass Office and the monument to Robert Sobukwe. Learn about life during apartheid on a walking tour of the hostels and shacks. Visit a shebeen (pub) and try some homemade beer. See a traditional healer in action, and then drive through the Bonteheuwel township, reserved for the "colored" community during the days of apartheid. Hear about the division of people and its impact within communities today. See the Gugulethu 7 Memorial to the members of an anti-apartheid group killed by the South African Police in 1986, and the memorial to the American student Amy Biehl, murdered by PAC supporters in 1993. Afterwards, get dropped off at the V&A Waterfront to take your ferry to Robben Island.

    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.
