    By far the most amazing tour I have ever done! We were taken around the prison by a guard who had actually been imprisoned there at the same time as Mandela. I was blown away by this and was very intrigued by him. The prison itself is now a well kept part of history and was deeply moving. If your in Cape Town this is a must. Laura

    Gold feel from the roof the day we visited the Palace! It was amazing and to think that the Royal family are building another Palace as this one was too small - wow! Laura

    Getting to Abu Dhadi from Dubai Airport

    If flying Emirate Airlines you can get a free courtesy bus from Dubai airport to the centre of Abu Dhabi. It's totally free, however it does have to be booked at least 48 hours ahead. Can book a return trip. Air conditioned bus. Travel time 1.5 hours. Highly recommend. Laura
