We hiked table mountain with Hendre while visiting Cape Town, and we had a great time!!! The hike itself was an awesome experience. We did the India Venster route, and it was even better than expected. It was a great feeling after making it to the top and look down to see what we had climbed to get to the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our hike up Table Mountain. Our guide, Hendre de Villiers, was wonderful, and she felt like a friend by the end of the hike. We did the Platteklip Gorge, which is not a challenge from a climbing perspective, but was harder than I expected from a fitness point of view (straight up hill). The views were worth... More

After hiking two other routes with Riaan's colleagues (India Venster with Hendre and Porcupine Ravine with Warren), we finally got to hike with THE DUDE (Riaan) himself. The setting up of each hike was excellent (prompt answers to emails, very clear instructions, staying in touch about weather and starting times). After having read Tony Lourens' Table Mountain Classics (which affirms... More

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
