A must for all. A history lesson, a life lesson and a stark reminder to all of the principles of equality and fairness. Everyone held on every word when our guide ( an ex political prisoner) spoke.

Had a terrific driver, David, who picked me up at my hotel, delivered me to the boat for Robbin Island & met me on the return. Very good tour of the island….loved having a former political prisoner show us around all the building’s including a discussion of Nelson Mandela and his time in prison on the island.

Our Robben Island tour was conducted by a former prisoner. His account of the prison and the conditions under which the prisoners lived was stark, compelling, and thought-provoking. The history he shared of Nelson Mandela's incarceration left us spellbound.

Everything was punctual and on time. The staff was great. The island is a piece of well preserved history.

It was absolutely amazing, I got very emotional to hear from someone who experienced the horrors first hand, I will never forget this experience.
