We were collected by Godfrey in plenty of time for the ferry We were reminded to bring ID which is required to board the ferry Very informative tour of Robben Island To hear an ex prisoners account of his experience there was very moving

Anyone living in, or visiting Cape Town should do this tour. It is an eye opener and there is so much to see and learn about the history of South Africa.

What an educational day and a very moving experience. The trip was well organised and a good insight into the plight of equality that was sought in South Africa in those troubled times. #eachoneteachone

The ferry was comfortable and extremely well organised and when we arrived on the island found our way to a waiting bus. The tour guide was informative and we enjoyed being able to explore the island this way, but also getting off to enjoy the views across the water to Cape Town. When we joined the walking tour, our guide was fantastic - an ex-prisoner himself with so many stories to tell, all from the heart. He had all the time in the world to answer the many questions fired his way, and answered them with dignity and humour. I won't ever forget this - Mandela's cell and garden, learning about the cruelty the prisoners had, the life there and the living conditions. Highly recommend.

I paid $88.98usd per person for 4 people. We were notified that we could not receive transportation to or from our hotel to the ferry. So, we had to find our own way to the station! The ferry ticket and tour is R600, which equals about $34usd. The person from this company met us at the ferry station and gave us our tickets which we could of purchased from the station ourselves. No one from this company accompanied us on, nor did any part of the tour. You are paying for transportation and ferry/ tour ticket. Rhis company only does the transportation portion in which we did not receive! They made a $54 profit per person for just giving us tickets at the station. No refund or compensation was given. I truly feel that this company is a scam for charging my family $216 for transportation we did not receive! However, the tour is worth booking which can be done for $34usd at the V & A waterfront Nelson Mandela Gateway to Robben Island. The experience was priceless and the information given was heart wrenching and gave me a new life changing perspective/ outlook on life as a Black African American woman.
