THE TOUR EXPERIENCE
You will disembark at Murray’s Bay Harbour situated on the east coast of the Island and take a short walk to buses that will transport you to all the historical sites around the Island. On the way to the buses, you will pass buildings and a high wall built by prisoners during the 1960s.The buildings were used for family and lawyer visits to prisoners.
You will meet your Tour Guide when you have boarded the busses. The Tour guides inside the prison are former political prisoners. They are fully conversant and knowledgeable about the Island’s multi-layered 500 year old history. The tour route includes the graveyard of people who died from leprosy, the Lime Quarry, Robert Sobukwe’s house, the Bluestone quarry, the army and navy bunkers and the Maximum Security Prison where thousands of South Africa’s freedom fighters were incarcerated for years. The tour culminates with a viewing of Nelson Mandela’s cell.
I wanted to thank you and especially my guide, Estlee, for a fantastic trip to Boulder's Beach and the cape last week. She really knows her stuff and it was wonderful to have her drive me around to see all the great things that the Cape Town area has to offer. My only wish is that I had more time to see everything but I guess this just means that I have to come back, right?
