          You will be picked up from the address you provided(within our pickup radius). Boarding the ferry closes 10 min before the time slot you chose. The ferries depart from the Nelson Mandela Gateway to Robben Island in the V&A Waterfront. You will disembark on 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.

          360 degrees turning cable car sets the stage
          Wonderful place to explore. Just note, the cable car does not always run, as high winds effect whether it will run or not.

          Thought this would be with a group pick up but surprised when we ended up with our own personal driver for the day. Escorted us through to the Robben Island tour which was excellent and then transported us to Table Mountain. Great day and made Very easy by Said our driver.

          Amazing combo with a turning cable car
          We left for Robben Island from V&A in beautiful weather and calm see. The island itself was idyllic with a beautiful view to the mainland and the mountains around Cape Town. The history was every thing else but idyllic and a former inmate gave us a good insight about the history - and the daily life at the prison. Good that it is history now ! The trip to Table mountain was amazing - the state of the art (turning around) cable car brought us to the top in seconds and the plateau was beautiful and with stunning views in all directions. We spent 1.5 hours just walking around. The trip was well organized and the guide was very nice and skilled !

          Excellent guide and tour!
          My guide Chris was so nice and gave me lots of information about Table Mountain and Robben Island. It's a lot to fit into one day so bring plenty of sun protection and water. I hiked at the top of Table Mountain for an hour and a half and the views are stunning. Wear a good pair of trainers or walking shoes if you want to explore as the floor is obviously rocky. Robben island is also a good tour and if you love history then you'll get so much out of being taken around the prison by a former inmate and the emotional stories they tell so definitely worth a visit. Go with Sadie Cape Town tours as they are on time and very friendly.

          Perfect personal tour with Chris
          Our hotel booked Chris to take 4 of us on a tour from Cape Town to Boulder Bay and Simonstown. Chris was excellent, a safe reliable driver. Great company very informative about the places we visited and also talked about South Africa and Cape Town. We throughly enjoyed his company and advice. Highly recommend him for an affordable enjoyable trip

          Highly suggest this tour. Started early in am with our guide Chris. We went out to Hout Bay for our first stop at the harbor. Had a small shopping area with local artists and huge deals which you could get your photo taken with, Our next stop was along road at Chapman’s Peak for some awesome photos. Then on to Cape Point. Walked up to the lighthouse. Again the scenery was awesome and had great photo opportunities. Went back down and left to go to Boulders Beach but along the way discovered Baboons going through a fisherman’s auto (he had left his window open) and the Baboons were looking for food. They are quite aggressive and fairly big. We alerted the fisherman and then went on our way. Our guide Chris suggested going over the boulders at Boulders Beach to see the penguins, so we were all in. Rolled up our jeans and climbed over the boulders and walked in the water which was at high tide. We were all soaked but it was a great experience and saw the penguins up close and personal. Once out if the water, we decided to eat at the restaurant located there to dry out and then headed back into Cape Town. What a beautiful day with friends!

          Fun day trip
          We had a great day with Chris. We took a private tour so were able to shape the agenda to our needs. Aside from the typical peninsula attractions, he also took us to the Steenburg vineyard where we enjoyed an MCC tasting. He is knowledgeable about the culture and history of the region. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly!

          Christ is Capetown's finest
          When I booked my airport transfers little did I know I would be greeted by such an amazing soul. A side from the professionalism, on time service & comfortable vehicle Christ is a gem of a man. Always willing to help out in whatever ones needs might be... from recommendations & everything in between. Now that I have SadiCapetours full information. I will not hesitate to come back & book all my travel needs directly thru them. I highly recommend them you will not be disappointed in fact your expectations will be superseded.

          Very good safari experience
          We’ve been in aquila for a two days safari with accommodation in a standard suite. The overall experience was very good, both Safari game drives were well organised and the guide was knowledgeable about animals behaviour and wildlife in general. The restaurant was very nice with a broad variety of buffet food. Pool and spa were very good and the staff was very kind and welcoming. Overall, a very good experience, I would definitely recommend.

          One of the Best Day’s in SA
          Chris was absolutely amazing. If you only have one day to do the Cape of Good Hope, he was fantastic and beat the rush of everything. It worked out so perfectly. Made it to the cape of good hope before any of the rush of all the buses. Saw and swam with the penguins of boulder’s beach. Had lunch in Simon’s town and then even saw a lot of the wine country outside of Cape Town. Chris is so nice, friendly and patient. Even stayed with my aunt who was a bit on the slower side while walking. Doesn’t help that she wants a selfie every other second. But by far one of the best days down in South Africa. He is fantastic and you’ll enjoy the experience with family over one of the huge bus tours. Heck, even if it’s just one or two of you. I think you’ll find he’s reasonable, extremely friendly and well worth it.

        The Robben Island experience itself was terrific. We never met the person who was supposed to meet us, he said he was running late so we boarded the ferry ourselves. On the return trip we became separated, and my wife was denied boarding , travelling back on a different boat, but it did arrive quickly. All in all a bit of a dogs dinner regrettably, but of no fault of the Robben Island team

        If you go on this tour through Tripadvisor it costs $96. For this price you get picked up from your hotel, and, if you want, dropped back off again; however, who wants to be taken back to their hotel when you can spend the rest of the day walking around the wharf which is one of the biggest attractions in Cape Town?
        Instead, I suggest buying your own ticket for the tour and taking an Uber to the wharf. An Uber would cost about five dollars and the ticket to Robben Island (tour included) will cost about $45. I am normally really satisfied with Tripadvisor recommendations, but this one was a bit of a rip off.
        That being said, the gentleman who picked me up was extremely nice.

        We have been battling stomach bugs, and our driver was so patient with us as we were 5 minutes late coming downstairs. He was punctual picking us up and collecting us and very nice. We were so not with it that we forgot cash for the driver and tour guide on the island, which was embarrassing.
        The boat crossing was grand and an informative video played.
        The coach tour guide was great - informative and comical, and our guide of the high security area, a former political prisoner, was excellent.
        It was a very moving and humbling experience, but one I think visitors to this beautiful country and area should definitely do. Lest we forget.
        NB Take cash if you have time for the shop and for the very quick pitstop. Also, be prepared with drinks and snacks if hungry, as there was no time to go to the shop on arrival or before we left as it was closed. Bring tissues in case the toilets are out of paper on the route. Remember a jacket as it can get breezy on the island.
        In hindsight, we could have probably bought our tickets direct and walked or hopped in an Uber just as easily - sth to note if you are staying nearby, but we were happy to support employment this way.

        It was very informative to learn the history of the island which involved more than the widely known history as the prison of Nelson Mandela. It was very sobering to view the place that imprisoned people simply because they wanted the same freedoms that had been their lifestyle before Apartheid. Jama was our guide and he gave us many details of the prison. Highly recommend for anyone visiting Capetown

        Well organised, but large numbers actually in groups on the island itself. Would have preferred smaller numbers timed more specifically perhaps.
