I planned this for my parents as a 70th birthday gift to my dad. They were both picked up at the hotel and later dropped off. Prior to getting dropped off, they were offered to be taken to Table Mountain for free (only my dad) as it was his actual birthday just to keep the celebratory going on. I was really touched by that gesture 🙏🏾 Nonetheless they both had a beautiful day and the trip for them was worthwhile so thank you Aim Cape Tours for helping me make this trip a forever memorable one for my parents.

All was ok, just groups were too big so it seemed very rushed. Not enough time to see everything completely

We booked this half day trip via Viator, costing £166 for 2 people. The tickets said pick up for 8.00am from our hotel, followed by a 9.00am tour of Robben Island. After waiting at our hotel until 8.10am we called our tour operators and they advised the driver was ‘on his way’… So we waited again before calling back at 8.20am to be told by the tour operator that the driver was ‘just dropping someone else off’. We continued to wait until 8.45am only to then be sent a WhatsApp saying the tour was overbooked but they would pick us up at 11.00am! We based our whole itinerary around this trip and wasted a morning sat in reception being messed around. Needless to say, we did not take them up on the later trip and I’d advise anyone reading to go directly to the pier and do it yourself rather than using these jokers.

Good day Dear Client We regret for not having a good experience as we are determined to make it happen.First of all Robben Island is A Weather permits Tour unfortunatel,by booking your seat DOES NOT garantee you the Visit of Robben Island. The Island is located in Deep Sea hence the weather conditions impact on the Safety of Passengers,which is our priority.All bookings are grouped into time slots by first come first serve,because the Ferry and Busses carry a Maximum number of passengers, on your case Booking in few hours before 8H00 tour, weather Cancellation from Robben island management and the availability of the time slost did not march with a clear communication with our crew members which led by not satisfying your desire right away,we recommend to reschedule or a full refund and this is what the Tour consultant did.We hope to have a pleasant experience for the next occasion.Have a fantastic day further.

it was just an amazing trip, from the hotel pick up the driver was very friendly, the car was very clean with a nice cool breeze from the air-corn, as I remember that day was very hot. We went to Robben Island gateway in Waterfront, he gave us our tickets and we hooped on a ferry, before we could leave he informed us that he wont be joining us and that we will find him waiting for us on our return. We made to Robben Island Museum, ohhh how emotional it is there, learning about the history of the museum from the former political prisoner himself almost made my tears to fall down. We then explored the Island after we got into the bus back to the ferry, back to Waterfront where we had our lunch there and we asked for more time as we were admiring the place the driver then suggested that we visit the 2Oceans aquarium, yhoooh amazing, amazing, amazing, that was for the first time i saw sea creatures, hahaa and the shark.

Me and my baby really had an amazing day, Thank you AIm Cape Tours. will most definitely travel with you again on my next visit.

Deceitful and expensive
If you are clueless about Cape town and speak no English, and have a lot of money to spend, I would recommend this
