The tour was a most wonderful experience. I am more knowledgeable about the roots of the South African freedom movement. Truly a fortunate experience for my entire group. The tour guide was there for us every step of the way. The walk to freedom speaker/ professor was phenomenal!!!!!

A wonderful experience! We had a former prisoner named Sparks, give us a tour of the prison. He gave a very good explanation about the prison and his experience there. The only issue would be that there was a delay in communication regarding the pickup up time the night before the tour.

Mind blowing experience! While the stories and reality will hit you hard, it is a very memorable experience. The tour itself is given by former Prisoners of the prison. You will learn a lot but it can hit you heavy. The experience itself is pretty crazy. You get to see the prison cells, the yard, kitchen, bathrooms, etc. You get to see it all. You definitely will feel immersed into the experience and learn a lot about what is was like for prisoners on this island. Lots of informative history here.
