Everything was good about this trip. Margaret answered all my email questions straightaway and although she was taking another group she was able to find another expert, Pietro, to take us up Platteklip Gorge. Pietro was at the hotel for the arranged pick up early and added hugely to the experience with his expert knowledge of the routes, the history... More

I have visited Cape Town several times in the last 18 months but had only been up Table Mountain in the cable car. I walk regularly at home in the UK and really felt that it was time to grips with the mountain properly. Not knowing the territory I felt that a guided walk up the Platteklipp Gorge route was...

As a small family unit we were initially going to walk alone, we had come to Cape Town to do this walk after my wife had completed the four peaks challenge in the UK. Family convinced us to get a guide. On very short notice, recommended by our hotel, Table Mountain Walks guided us up the iconic mountain. With varying... More

I initially intended to hike Table Mountain on my own and do my own thing but a friend convinced me to get a guide. After contacting a few different providers Table Mountain Walks had the best response and best customer service and managed to accommodate me at short notice. I was most impressed with the knowledge and experience of the... More

An excellent 5 hours, led by a friendly guide who went at a leisurely pace up through Skeleton Gorge across the Table and then to the cable car. In an ideal world, I would have liked the pace across the top of the mountain to be a little higher, as our group was pretty young and fit. I also would... More

I am so glad that we walked up Table Mountain rather than just going in the cable car - it was a wonderful and memorable experience and we got to see much more of the mountain and less of the crowds (although I was also glad that we were able to get the cable car down!). I expected great views,... More

Margaret was organized and timely. She is an excellent guide and made sure to remind us to mind the blister bushes. She also pointed out various interesting parts of the walk and made sure we had time to stop and soak in the views, which I appreciated. I would highly recommend Margaret to anyone who wants to explore Table Mtn,... More
