Our tour group coming from New Zealand were not sure whether we would find Robben Island interesting, but we were very glad to have gone there. It was a beautiful days, so we enjoyed the boat trip. On the island we first had a bus tour, with a very informative guide. Then we were shown around the prison by a man who had been sent there as a 20 year old in 1984 and not released until 1991. He was excellent, giving us a lot of interesting historical information and showing no bitterness.
