Tour Details Summary
Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of Cape Town from the top of Table Mountain, explore the city center with a drive around the Malay Quarter, a stop at the Castle of Good Hope and the Noon Day Gun, time permitting a visit to Diamond Works after your boat trip to Robben Island.
After a quick ride up the cable car is all you need to experience the famous landmark of Table Mountain. If the weather is favourable, you will have 360-degree views of the “Mother City” which are breathtaking from this vantage point. What makes Table Mountain so unique is that it forms an innate amphitheater around the City which is rare. If the weather is not favourable, don’t despair, the tour will take you up to the top of Signal Hill which also has spectacular views. Our Cape town guide will provide you with a wealth of information on the day.
After lunch we board the Robben Island Ferry for a short boat trip to Robben Island. While travelling across to Robben Island you will have fantastic views of Cape Town and Table Mountain. Robben Island is one of the most recognisable prisons in the world due to the 18-year incarceration of Mr. Nelson Mandela in this facility. Mr. Nelson Mandela is no doubt one of the most famous prisoners and leaders in the world and the tour of Robben Island incudes a nostalgic stop at his cell, in the same condition as it was while he was incarcerated at the facility. All tours are fully guided by past political prisoners which offer visitors a truly exceptional understanding of the prison’s history and the personal plight of the prisoners during their time in prison.
