Robben Island was great. The tour guide on the bus and the in the prison were very knowledgeable and great captivating speakers. Amiable took us on the city tour afterwards and he was very knowledgeable about the history of cape town and ZAR in general. I would do this tour again for sure.

Overcharged by a HUGE amount by Cape Tours Do NOT use this company Cape Tours to book this tour - they overcharged by 230 GBP!! I really recommend you book direct with Robben Island, and save yourself over 200 GBP! Unfortunately Aim Cape Tours are overcharging by a HUGe amount!! I hope this review can help save you some GBP.

Meeting the former political prisoner and having a conversation with him. The tour that everyone should experience. Detailing a period of history that should never be forgotten.

I was a little leery of this tour after reading reviews that described disorganiztion, but our experience was very smooth despite the necessary handoffs. Our La Vacanza Travel guide brought us all to the ferry station, and stayed behind as Robben Island has their own well trained bus tour guides and then ex prisoner guides for the high security prison. Our La Vacanza Travel guide was clearly waiting for us upon return, it was an easy rendezvous. We had lunch at the top of Table Mountain, I would recommend waiting to buy tram tickets until on site, as the trams shut down in heavy winds. Our driver took us to the kiosk which is apparently the best kept secret in the world as there were lines at the ticket booths, but absolutely no one at the kiosk!
