Riaan is one of those guides who you remember long after you've experienced his skills. He sets the bar-a high one. He led the four of us (me, wife, 14 yo daughter, 11 yo son) up the India Venster trail. He is calm, confident, careful, and passionate about the mountain and Cape Town. We felt a surge of accomplishment as... More

Dear travelers, I can't stand sharing my wonderful hiking tour on Table Mountain with these great guys Riaan Vorster and Warren Mayers. To see and touch is not enough.

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

We were met by Riaan at our B and B at 6 am ready for our climb up Table mountain. We drove our own car to the cable car station at the foot of the mountain. We were met be Sanghira Emma and Andrew our fellow climbers. Riaan briefed us and we began the ascent. The first 10 minutes was... More
