Robben Island tour was a little rushed in the maximum security prison. Part of the problem was having mixed group of English and French speakers and the inevitable delays when the French translation took place. The initial guide on the bus was better at managing the situation than the prison guide. The Township tour was very good. The guide was knowledgeable and did his best managing a group who were intent on disobeying his advice!

Robben island speaks for itself. Fascinating and emotional. Really enjoyed the township experience. It gave us a better appreciation of the interaction between the different social groups in CapeTown and SA. Our guide and driver were very friendly and well informed. Excellent tour

Although it was convenient to be picked up it did make the excursion quite expensive. Also it was fairly chaotic at the ferry terminal as we did not receive clear instructions as to where to wait for our tickets.

The Township Tour was one of the highlights of my entire trip, Godfrey as wealth of information as he lives in the township, I learnt so much about the culture and way of life in the past and now, fabulous trip.
