We hiked Indian Venster with Riaan and it was great! Initially apprehensive at our start from the lower cable car, the first portion was the hardest slog as it was straight up. Later, the climbing and scrambling was actually easier (and lots of fun). I was pleasantly surprised that I found it easier than expected - Riaan set a good... More

Loved the hiking & scrambling, loved the Indian Venster! Especially as you see different sides of the mountain. Beautiful scenery, views and backdrops! Hard to imagine that there is away up! Actually it was easier than expected with the great guiding of Mike and by taking it slowly and adjusted to the group members . Mike is a great guide,... More

This is on of the easiest routes up table mountain. We got the myciti bus up to the cable cart station and hiked from there. Our party was a mix of a few of us that hike regularly and a couple that don't hike at all. The route is mainly a series of natural steps zig zagging up the gorge.... More

I will preface this by saying my boyfriend and I debated for a good week about doing India Venster vs Kasteelspoort or Platteklip Gorge. We ended up choosing Kasteelspoort and I think it was best, as our physical fitness levels are very different, and we needed to "meet in the middle" for a hike we could both physically do, but...

During our stay in Cape Town my husband and me had the chance of hiking table mountain along the India Venster with Riaan. If you are not from Cape Town and don't know your way around table mountain join Riaan! He was a spotless guide. He picked us up on time, guided us in super safety while explaining nature, geography... More

Absolutely nothing to fault, from reserving a hike to dropping us back to our hotel. Even though we had already hung out with the Penguins at Betty's Bay, spend three days with the Southern Right Whales and swam with Shark... this hike still blew our minds! Great guide in Riann and great views. Definitely a number 1 activity when in... More

Decided to hike the India Venster route during our short stay in Cape Town. It was definitely worth the early start! The views were amazing (when the clouds did eventually break) but despite the weather it was still an enjoyable experience. Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to see table mountain avoiding the queues and the rush of... More

Thanks Mike - friendly, encouraging, patient, informative and relaxed - all presented in a perfect mix of professionalism and informality. Felt in very safe hands the whole time and would recommend without hesitation to all!! We are reasonable walkers, not the fastest.... not the slowest, bit scared of heights!! Mike paced the morning exactly to our needs.

What can I say?! Amazing amazing amazing! On arrival in Cape Town our taxi whizzed around Table Mountain en route to our accommodation and I panicked at first glance... I'd booked a hike for myself and my boyfriend the following morning and not just any hike... Climb one of its more challenging routes.. India Venster. The cable car hadn't run... More
