This was such a memorable tour. Everyone knows about the great Nelson Mandela but to actually tour inside and around the prison that he was held at for so much of his life is profound and heartbreaking.. You will never forget a single moment of your experience on Robben Island as it is so captivating and impressionable. When taking this Tour, make sure you ask for Remmy. You will not be disappointed with his professionalism and deep knowledge of South Africa and especially the Cape Town area. He will provide another essential element to your South African visiting experience! Plus, he is one of the most genuine and considerate people I have ever met in my life. Do yourself a favor and go on this tour with Remmy as your guide.

This was a very sobering experience, to actually enter into the very jail cell that housed the great Nelson Mandela for eighteen years. First, our tour guide Mr Remi made sure we arrived at the docks on time to get processed in. He has been the tour guide for several of our tours and he is the best. He’s very knowledgeable of the local customs, areas and how to deal with the local merchants. If your planning to visit Cape Town, I highly recommend Remi, you won’t be disappointed.
