"Robben Island" Robben Island Tip by markymark
Robben Island, Cape Town: 42 reviews and 66 photos
Take a baot trip and tour to Robben Island. Touristy - yes. But also great views of Capetown and Table Mountain. We had a bus tour first round the island - this tour guide switched between hysterically funny and osterely seriously. Very entertaining and informative. Then took a tour round the inside of the jail, by an 'ex-resident' of the jail. Serious, and again very informative. Similar theme and feeling to Alcatraz in a way, but history gives it the edge.
