I chose to go with Binny/Ridgway Ramblers based on the reviews on TA. It was an excellent choice - Binny picked me up bright and early to join 4 other hikers. Her husband and and 2 dogs always joined us. Binny is very friendly, and despite all of us being strangers, at the end, it felt like we just made... More

The walk itself is spectacular and Binny is very amiable and despite us all being strangers it was like hiking with a group of friends. It was... More

Binny was an absolutely incredible guide for the hike up Table Mountain. The route was fantastic (I did platteklip gorge) - incredible views. We went at a great pace and there was even a fabulous busker (and comedian!) about 3/4 up. The group had a dynamic but relaxed vibe and that was truly down to Binny setting the tone. It... More

The entire experience was great! Binny and the rest of the group that went with me were all very kind. She knows almost everything there is to know about Table Mountain and she sets the hike at a pace that is best for you. Once we reached the top I wanted to abseil down the mountain, so Binny made sure... More

Binny took us up the mountain and we had a great walk. She responded very quickly to our email. She had a great knowledge of the fauna and flora on the mountain and chatted with us the entire way up the mountain. We can definitely recommend a trip with Ridgeway Ramblers.

This was our first time in Cape Town and hiking up the mountain was one of the key activities we had planned during our stay there. Not knowing anything about the trails, I had a bias towards Platteklip Gorge because it had been recommended to us. We were put into contact with Binni who had planned a hike up Skeleton... More

What a great way to spend a morning in Cape Town! I was very fortunate to meet Binny Ridgway recently through some friends who are neighbours of hers. After hearing about the Day Tours that she does on a regular basis, I arranged to join her on a hike that she was planning up Platteklip Gorge yesterday. Although I live... More

I throughly recommend taking a hike up Platteklip Gorge with Binny Ridgeway to the top of Table mountain. This is a far better way than taking the cable car up to the top, then you can enjoy the cable car down. As long as you are reasonably fit, anyone can make the hike. It is actually easier than it looks... More

Binny was an excellent guide! She was very prepared and had lots of interesting information. Also because our group was made up of 6 guests she brought along an extra guide. I would get in contact again if I ever visited SA again!
