More sites to see with new Robben Island Museum walking tour

The Robben Island Museum has announced that it will be launching a new walking tour, which will come into effect on Friday.

According to Siphuxolo Mazwi, the marketing and tourism manager at the museum, innovative ways to attract new visitors and better the visitor experience had to brainstormed, largely due to the economic difficulties that came about because of the pandemic.

“The walking tours will offer tourists a new and exciting option, while also offering people who have already experienced standard tours a chance to learn more about RIM’s rich heritage,” said Mazwi.
