My friends and I hiked the India Venster trail on Table Mountain in March, courtesy of our awesome guide Riaan. We were all reasonably fit, but hiked at slightly varying speeds. Riaan picked the perfect trail for us all and expertly managed our pace and overall hike based on our abilities. It was challenging, exciting and beautiful. He interspersed the... More

Our climb up Blind Gully was one of the highlights of our trip to Cape Town, largely thanks to Riaan. Apart from being a genuinely nice guy and excellent companion on a long day out, he is clearly very experienced and his calm manner made us all feel comfortable, even though we were scrambling over some serious terrain. He adapted... More

I can't add anything additional to all of the wonderful things below said about Riann and this hike, but I wanted to give my 5 stars. Truly a great way to experience Table Mountain.

A superb and truly memorable day with Riaan hiking/scrambling the India Venster route up Table Mountain. Looking from the bottom and down from the top you will not believe you have done this and yet Riaan makes it totally safe, relatively easy, educational and fun. The worst bit was having to walk down the Pletteklip Gorge because the cable car... More

My brother and I hiked with Riaan and had an outstanding time. He's full of great knowledge, really understands how to pace a challenging hike for everyone in the group, and explains difficult scrambling sections so clearly that absolutely anyone with a reasonable fitness base can enjoy and make it up the mountain. We had a fantastic time - this... More

My husband and I climbed Table Mountain in February. We were a little apprehensive as we hadn't done anything like it before but Hendre our amazing guide, was very reassuring, encouraging and above all great fun. We loved the experience from start to finish and would highly recommend Hike Table Mountain.

We recently did the Indian Venster tour in a group with three others with Riaan and can fully agree to all previous reviews! The route is really amazing and Riaan did a really great job and managed to bring us all up safe&sound. During the hike he shared lots of his knowledge and passion for the mountain which made the...

Myself and my partner recently climbed the India Venster route at the end of February on a private afternoon hike with our guide, Hendre. After initially enquiring to do the Platteklip Gorge route, Riaan (who we corresponded by email with beforehand, excellent service) had recommended the India Venster route instead so we would get the most out of our climb-...
