I booked the Robben Island Tour & was saddened when it was cancelled because of the sea waves & turbulence. Ivan quickly made other arrangements and provided a City & Table Mountain Tour instead. It was a wonderful day. I highly recommend this company.

Yves was an excellent tour guide and was punctual, with great knowledge of the Cape and Robben Island. I spent several days in Cape Town and called Yves for historical, garden and shopping tours.

We pre-booked tickets to Robben Island and prison tour including pick up and drop off. Ivan was our guide and he was great from beginning to end. Polite, friendly and really good fun. We did the tour at Robben Island which is actually a different guide to Ivan but after we arrived back Ivan was ready and waiting to hear all about it and to take us back to the hotel. we told him we wanted to see some other places so he took us around Bo kaap, signal hill, camps bay and many other interesting parts of Cape Town. We learned so much from him and although it was a rainy day, his sunny smile and friendly way made it all worth while.

Tour included a Friendly hotel pick up and drop off at the ferry by Ivan to Robben Island and Return. Ounce there we boarded a bus for a tour of the Island and the tour of the prison was by a former inmate. I learned so much with first hand knowledge

The driver picked us up early in the morning and dropped us to the ferry. The tour and transport was very well organized. The experience is a must in Cape Town for history and politics enthusiasts.
