What people are saying about Western Cape

Fascinating, sobering, saddening, optimistic experience

I remember the dreadful days of apartheid and reading about the sentences given to brave people who fought for basic civil rights in their own homeland. I’m proud that an Australian Prime Minister, Bob Hawke, was instrumental in the embargoes that helped finally break this hideous regime. Mandela was but one of the heroic souls who endured and the wives and children knew tremendous suffering too. A sobering, saddening but ultimately inspiring experience.

Interesting tour of the penal island and prison.

Tour combined a boat trip from Cape Town with a bus tour of the island and a foot tour of the prison where Nelson Mandela was held for most of his life. The prison tour led by a former political prisoner. The tour is a must for all believers in personal liberty and democracy. It gives an insight into the life of the man who gave up so much for the freedom of his people, and did so much to bring his country together.

Excellent activity for everyone to enjoy!

We loved it. Our guide was excellent. He was professional, knowledgeable and very friendly. Told us everything we need to know and a lot of things that we liked to hear about. The trip was professionally managed, the guide was excellent and to our surprise - the drinks served, was out of this world. Great value for money and time well spent.

Amazing tour of Babylonstoren with Uriel

Our tour guide, Uriel, definitely made the tour unforgettable. He was really knowledgeable and friendly and took us to some great wineries. We definitely recommend Uriel as a guide! For wineries, Marianne has amazing wine, Clos Malverne great views and unique wine and ice cream pairings - definitely recommend visiting both.

Entire experience was excellent and educational.

Pick up directions unclear, said pick up at 11:15. We waited until 11:35 and the Ubered to the port. Driver called us at 11:40 and said he was at our hotel and that the pick Up time was 11:15 to 11:45. Very confusing. But eventually straightened out and didn’t harm the overall experience.
