Quite nice but a bit rushed
, Mar 2020
We had a nice day out although the weather was very hot. Our guide took us to the Mandela Gateway and gave us tickets for the boat for Robben Island. He stayed in Cape Town. The boat was quite comfortable and we were allowed to stand and look outside. We were then divided up onto some rough old buses. We had a guide on the bus who was very strict and said we definitely could not speak a word when she was talking. It was hard to tell if she was serious or trying to be funny. I was sorry that we were not allowed to get off at some of the sites because it was very difficult to take photos through the the closed windows and across other people. We were then dropped at the prison and were given an interesting tour by an ex inmate. We saw Mandela’s cell and other various courtyards and cells. We then returned to the ferry and were met the other side by our guide. He asked if we wanted to stop for lunch or not which I thought was a bit odd as we’d been out since 08.00. So he found us somewhere to eat which was average but felt a bit rushed. We then went to Table Mountain. It was very busy but we eventually got in the gondola. At the top the guide left us to walk round ourselves and asked us how much time we needed. We had no idea so suggested half an hour, again I got the feeling we were being rushed. As it turned out half an hour wasn’t long enough and we weren’t quite back in time and as soon as half hour had passed he was chasing us on the phone. The top of Table Mountain was interesting and there were lovely views from the top but it was seriously crowded. We had been up Signal Hill the day before which was much more peaceful and had great views, although obviously much lower down. It was all very rushed up there. We then had a look round Bo Kasparov but I got the impression he wasn’t that keen on going there. He had some difficulty with the manual gear box and stalled several times in the hills going up which was a bit scary. We went back through the city to our hotel and passed several interesting sites that I would have liked to stop and see, plus take photos but this didn’t happen.
Table mountain experience

Tour guide was prompt, knowledgeable and pleasant ... I would recommend using this agency again and the tour guide..
Peter was the highlight of the tour!
, Feb 2020
Our Driver Peter was amazing. He was very attentive and personable. He gave us very great details about the city and did not leave our side. We felt safe and enjoyed his company. The cable car was shut down because of winds so we were not able to go to the top of the mountain but Peter was accommodating.
Good tour inspire of adversity
, Feb 2020
Weather played a strong role in our tour, but we were impressed with the guide’s and company’s flexibility. Our guide was right on time to pick us up at our hotel. He was knowledgeable and prepared for the day. Unfortunately, the day would have gone better if we had done Robben Island first and Table Mountain second. As it was, we went to Table Mountain which was totally fogged in. Had a nice walk around the summit. Then we found out that the afternoon boats to Robben Island were canceled due to weather. We had to scramble to figure out what to do. We enjoyed our tour of the castle and botanical gardens and the company arranged for us to do Robben Island two days later. We appreciated their flexibility. Kudos to the guide and tour operator for their support in adversity.
Robben Island, Table Mountain
, Feb 2020
Both Table Mountain and Robben Island were closed due to weather and this was not the fault of the driver. He was fine but we were disappointed in the fact that what we signed up for was not available.
Good trip around Cape Town
, Feb 2020
Started with Robben island. An ok experience because of its history. Couldn’t go to table Mountain because of weather. So our guide took us around CT, Signal hill and told a lot of history. We got the tickets for Table Mountain and did it on our own a couple of days later. Amazing up there.
Great day out
, Feb 2020
Loved it but we could have spent two hours on table mountain instead of 30 mins. Large crowds meant we had to queue and we had a ferry booked for 11am to Robben island. Excellent tour of the prison with an ex prisoner that was originally sentenced to 25 years for treason but was released after 7 years. Peter our guide for the day was also excellent
