Cape Town Tours

City, Table Mountain & Robben Island - Private Full-Day Tour

Cape Peninsula, South Africa

Robben Island, with Table Mountain in the distance
Return to Cape Town & Cape Winelands Tours

Depart from Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront by ferry for a 25-minute trip across Table Bay to Robben (Seal) Island.

This World Heritage Site and South Africa’s most revered national monument, was a prison for some 450 years - for convicts, slaves, exiled Eastern princes, lepers, the insane and those punished for resisting oppressive rule - among them, Nelson Mandela.

The tour, led by guides (some of whom were once inmates), includes a visit to the Prison Block and the infamous Limestone Quarry, where prisoners once toiled, as well as a drive around the island with it breathtaking views across the bay.

Return to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront where you are met by our guide for a trip along the picturesque Atlantic Seaboard, playground of wealthy Capetonians, and a stop for lunch at a seafood restaurant along the way.

Continue past sunny Camps Bay over Kloof Nek to the Lower Cableway Station to board the revolving cable car for a 5-minute ride to the top of Table Mountain. One thousand thirty six meters above sea level, this sandstone massif offers staggering bird’s-eye views of the city, the bay and the Peninsula (as far as Cape Point on a clear day), as you explore its summit. (This tour may be done in reverse depending on weather conditions).

Return to the city via the old Cape Malay Quarter, for a walk through the Company Gardens, a fresh produce garden for ships and locals from the mid 17th Century, and now home to the SA Museum, Houses of Parliament, National Gallery and St George's Cathedral. Drive to the Castle, South Africa's oldest building, and take in the nearby Grand Parade, where Nelson Mandela addressed the nation on his release in 1990, past District Six and home.

NOTE: Robben Island trip is scheduled, transfers, City and Table Mountain are private.
