My wife and I had read the amazing reviews about Riaan and his hikes, so we were very excited about this hike. We wanted to go outside of our comfort zone and try the India Venster route, even though we read it was really tough and were hesitant about the scrambling, which we had never done before. We emailed Riaan... More

Our family of four (kids' ages 19 and 14) climbed Table Mountain with another 6 hikers and Riann and Warren as our wonderful guides. It was a gorgeous day in Cape Town, temperate and clear. Originally, we had thought of hiking the most popular and shortest route, but Riaan suggested the India Venster route which offers more spectacular views and... More

We hiked up Table Mountain with Riaan on the India Venster route and loved every minute of it. The hike was challenging but the diverse terrain kept our attention at all times. Riaan was a top notch guide...he was engaging, knowledgable and informative...and hiking with him felt like we were hiking with a local South African friend. I can't say... More

My girlfriend and I did the Cape of Good Hope tour with Riann and had an amazing time! This is such a gorgeous place to go. Riann was an excellent guide and knew a lot about the places he took us. This was an all day tour that started when he picked us up right at our hostel in Kalk... More

I found the Hike Table Mountain by a combination of web searching and TripAdvisor. Initially, we were thinking about a Table Mountain hike, but after reading the Cape Point description on Riaan's excellent website, decided we really wanted to do an active day at Cape Point. We arranged the trip by e-mail, Riaan very responsive and excited about doing a... More

My husband, two friends and I hiked up Table Mountain with Riaan. At Riaan's recommendation we chose the India Venster route and were not disappointed! It was definitely challenging, but with Riaan's expert guidance we never felt unsafe or incapable. To our surprise, we really enjoyed the "scrambling"! Riaan knew just when to stop for breaks, and along the way... More

We used Riaan for a walk up Lion's Head in late July and had a brilliant time. We had discussed Table Mountain hike with him by email beforehand, and he advised us that due to the annual closure of the cable car and my wife's dodgy knee, the hike up and down was probably too much. That was excellent advice,... More

Great day we had with Rian, my son (11) and I, via India Venster. Strongly recommend his service. Excellent assistance and to support each step, toe and heal where necessary thus installing confidence to experience what you would never do safely on your own. Not cheap but that little extra investment definitely well worth it. Even carried gear for the... More

Had a fantastic day out with Riann. We hiked the India Venster route. I am not particularly good with heights and even though at one or two places I was a bit panicked, Riaan's guidance got me through with no problems. So happy I pushed myself through those few places...really only two or three...as the view on this route is... More

Riaan was prompt friendly and would ask you questions on your fitness level, comfort with heights etc to recommend you a route over email. Being Asian girls with smaller build and average fitness, we read about India Venster being dangerous and were at first worried if it would be a struggle. Riaan kept encouraging us and was very experienced and... More
