Every visitor to Cape Town has Table Mountain & Robben Island on their list of not to be missed attractions. Our day starts with a 1-2 hour walking tour on top of Table Mountain itself, before lunch and a trip to Robben Island. With this day tour we head straight for the Table Mountain cable way, and ascend to the top of this world famous Wonder of the Natural World. table mountain cable carWe take a guided walk around the top of the mountain and help you orientate yourself to this beautiful City, looking down on Cape Town. We take in the majestic views, whilst getting away from the crowds for a more intimate tour.

After taking the cable car back down the mountain, we head to the V&A Waterfront for an early lunch before taking the ferry to the notorious Robben Island which has served as an infamous prison for over 300 years, most recently incarcerating political prisoners during Apartheid. After arriving you have a guided tour of the prison by an ex-inmate and you also have a 45 minute bus ride around the Island to learn more about life on the Island and what happens there today. You then return to the Waterfront where the day ends. You can either be returned to your hotel or sit and have a drink in the marina and relax.

Very Interesting Tour, learned so much about the history of South Africa.
Wind was high so we did not get to do the Table mountain part, however our guide had a plan B, he took us to Signal Hill, to see the views, we did Table mountain later in the week

This is a trip you have to make if you are in Cape Town. Incredible views coming in and out of the city. More incredibly is the tour you will get on the island–from a former prisoner. No one else can do it justice. Must go!
