I'm normally not one to put reviews on here but have decided to break my silence and trip advisor vigirnity by putting up some of my musings on a morning spent hiking up Blind Gorge on Table Mountain with a nice young guide named Riaan. Having been recommended to my girlfriend, she had been in email conversation with Riaan about... More

After reading all the wonderful reviews it was an easy decision to choose Hike Table Mountain for both the Cape Point and Table Mountain hikes. I spoke with Riaan via email quite a few times in the lead up to our trip, and he was always quick to reply and very helpful. We flew into Cape Town quite late at... More

As a relatively experienced hiker, I debated hiking up Table Mountain by myself or going with a guide. I decided to go with Hike Table Mountain and have absolutely no regrets. Going with Riaan Vorster up the India Venster trail took all the stress out of the hike (no worries about route-finding), and allowed me to enjoy the spectacular scenery.... More

Riaan is brilliant. He is well worth the money; we had a wonderful hike with him up table mountain, the India Venster route. As he explains there are only 4 half day hikes near the cable car and this is the best for intermediate hikers. It also has amazing views around every corner, so long as the mountain weather cooperates,... More

My wife and I contacted Riaan several months before we arrived in Cape Town and having looked at the website and Facebook page had settled on the idea of doing the India Venster hike up Table Mountain. Riaan was very professional from the outset and asked a number of questions to determine our fitness, experience, ability, and attitude towards heights,... More

This was my first trip to South Africa in general and specifically to Cape Town. I spent a week in Capetown on Business and took off half a day to hike up table mountain. I was very lucky that the day I picked had spectacular weather - clear views and high overcast clouds that kept us in the shade without... More

My husband and I hiked the fabulous Table Mountain one glorious Sunday morning on our honeymoon in early November with Riaan and his friend Mike. From the moment I first contacted Riaan to enquire about the possibility of us doing a hike with him, right up to this very day his friendliness and professionalism really shines through! I have a...

My gf and I booked a hike with Riaan on the India Venster route. We were fortunate to have spectacular weather so the physical and visual conditions were perfect to do this natural landmark justice. If you want to see the best this mountain has to offer, you have to hike with Riaan. His expertise goes beyond simply following the... More

We hiked/scrambled up the India Venster route with Riaan and, despite doing the hike in the clouds for the most part, we would still consider it one of our top highlights of our Cape Town stay. This was due to the impressive knowledge, passion and enthusiasm that Riaan has for his beloved mountain and everything to do with it (including... More
