This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Table Mountain National Park 8001 South Africa

At the lower cable station, we will join a queue of tourists to go on the five-minute cable car trip to the top of Table Mountain, 1 067 meters above sea level, and explore the summit.

You’ll find a self-service restaurant, Table Mountain Café, offering a range of food and drinks, snacks, desserts and wines.

Table Mountain is a great spot to sit and soak up the commanding 360-degree views of Cape Town, Table Bay, the nearby peaks of the surrounding mountains and the rest of the Table Mountain National Park, in which the Cableway is situated.

Once on top there are 3 trails you can choose to do with the guide:

DASSIE WALK (15 min)
AGAMA WALK (30 min)

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Robben Island Museum, Cape Town Central 7400 South Africa

The ferries depart from the Nelson Mandela Gateway at the V & A Waterfront. (Please note that our tour guide will not be joining you on the tour of the Robben Island museum.)

You will disembark at Murray’s Bay Harbour situated on the east coast of the Island and take a short walk to buses that will transport you and a group of people to all the historical sites around the Island. On the way to the buses, you will pass buildings and a high wall built by prisoners during the 1960s.

The prison tour will be conducted by a Robben Island Tour Guide. They are fully conversant and knowledgeable about the Island’s multi-layered 500-year-old history. The tour route includes the graveyard of people who died from leprosy, the Lime Quarry, Robert Sobukwe’s house, the Bluestone quarry, the army and navy bunkers and the Maximum Security Prison where thousands of South Africa’s freedom fighters were incarcerated for years. The tour culminates with a viewing of Nelson Mandela’s cell.

Great Value for money. We were on a private tour, we didn’t feel rushed and Chris our guide for the day was excellent. Very knowledgeable. Would really recommend this tour.
