Tour Description

This unique experience begins as you are fetched by a top-notch tour guide at your accommodation. You'll board a ferry and explore Robben Island–one of the world's heritage sights–known infamously for imprisoning Nelson Mandela and many other freedom fighters during the apartheid era. At the Island, you'll get to visit the prison and learn its history through an expert guide.

After your experience at the Island, you'll be driven across the Atlantic coastline and enjoy spectacular views of the beautiful beaches of Clifton, Camps Bay, Hout Bay, and more. You'll marvel at pristine mountainous regions before you reach the tip of the peninsula at the Cape of Good Hope, where you'll get a chance to take a photo on its iconic name board.

Your tour culminates at Boulders beach in Simons Town, here you'll get to visit the adorable African penguins and take amazing photos with them. As your tour comes to an end, your friendly guide will drop you off at your accommodation.
