Full description

Join a guided tour and visit Cape Town's top attractions, including Table Mountain, Robben Island, the V&A Waterfront, and the Two Oceans Aquarium. Enjoy the convenience of a hotel pickup and travel in the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle.

Start your day of exploring Cape Town with an early pickup directly from your accommodation and set out to see the city's most iconic attraction, Table Mountain. Purchase your tickets and hop into one of the cable cars to make your way to the top of the mountain.

Spend some time soaking in the breathtaking views of the City of Cape Town, Signal Hill, and Lion's Head. Then, join your guide as you walk to another lookout point and be rewarded with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, Camps Bay, and the Twelve Apostles Mountains.

Ride the cable car back down the mountain and head to the V&A Waterfront where you'll board a ferry to Robben Island. Disembark at Murray's Bay Harbor on the east coast of the island and board a bus that will take you to all the historic sites.

Get a guided tour of the prison while learning about South Africa's history, the struggle against oppression, and the thousands of freedom fighters who were imprisoned on Robben Island, including former president Nelson Mandela.

Return by ferry to the V&A Waterfront and enjoy some free time to do some shopping or grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants (cost not included).

End your day with a visit to the Two Oceans Aquarium. Explore the wonders of the ocean up close as you visit the penguin exhibit, shark exhibit, ocean exhibit, and much more.

Finally, hop back into your air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy a comfortable ride back to your accommodation.

Date of tour: 9 Jan 2023 It was a great way to get a lot done in one day with the guide. It was a full day from 08.00 to 18.30. The tickets need to be purchased at each of the attractions. The tickets for Robben Island were bought on-line. Tickets for Table Mountain and Aquarium were bought at the venue, however there were no queues, so it went quickly.

There was a very rude lady at the entrance to the aquarium who told us we MUST take pictures. She couldn’t even tell us how much we were going to pay. ‘They only took the pictures. The people inside would tell us how much it would cost’. That was the only blight on an otherwise enjoyable day

The Table Mountain and Aquarium were both exciting and educational because of the tour guide's knowledge of the two sites. It is imperative in all trips to have a tour guide where practical. With regards to Robben Island, the ex-prisoners are the tour guide and sometimes I found a memory lapse when I asked specific prisoners were once on Robben Island. Perhaps a conversation between the company and Robben Island should take place specifically on tour guides. Alternatively, suggest that Ex-prisoners that I still alive volunteer to tell the story of Robben Island. I hope this will assist. Thank you. Themba TC Dlamini
