If you are tempted to hike up the mountain. Instead of getting the cable car then DO IT ! It's so worth while! We did the Platteklip gorge route which is the shortest and most direct. Our guide Liesel was superb. She inspired me when I felt like I was too slow for the rest of the group and her... More

Hiking with the expert help & support of Riaan & Mike on the India Venster route was a highlight of our stay in Cape Town. We couldn't recommend it enough. From the early start to the Table Top, Mike & Riaan guided us superbly; benefiting from their local knowledge and expert advice. We enjoyed spectacular views all the way, as... More

I'm a very active individual so when I realized Cape Town had Table Mountain, I knew I had to get there and after reading the reviews on here, I decided to go with the India Venster route with this guide. On the day of my hike, the visibility was terrible, which made Table Mountain too challenging, so Hendre and I... More

I wanted to remember my visit to "Cable Mountain". Hiking the "Indian Venster" route was a perfect way of doing that.The communication with Riann was excellent and he gets enough information out of you to recommend a route for you. I was picked up from my accommodation at 5.30am and met the others in our group at the cable car... More

I hiked table mountain via the india venster route Last august. Luckily we had a lovely day to climb. Riaan was our hiking guide and he was just excellent. I was visiting cape town from england with and friend and we are both 18 years old so we were a bit nervous about the safety of climbing the mountain. But... More

I had a fabulous hike up table mountain in a group of 5 people lead by Liesl. We were advised at all times to go at our own pace yet Liesl managed to keep us all together skillfully and light heartedly. The incline and heat make this a challenging yet very rewarding hike. Flora and fauna along the way are... More

We had a great time doing this hike with Liesl - my husband is scared of heights and struggled in the heat, but she was so supportive and he made it to the top! This is such a great way to see Table Mountain and experience the incredible environment.

We hiked up blind gully with Riaan in October 2015 and asked for a challenging route. That was what we got, early rise and some amazing bush walking, scrambling up rocks and all the way up to the top of the mountain constantly being surprised by the amazing amount of knowledge that was shared with us about the mountain, the...

We took Skeleton Gorge hike with Liesl. Excellent guide, Liesl did the hike in our tempo, showed us hidden gems on this magnificent mountain, told us about plants and animals living there. We really enjoyed our hike with Liesl. Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed the hike up the India Venster trail, our guide was very friendly and professional. The only complain is the price, which is quite steep for a group hike of several people, the pickup area is also a bit restrictive, so we had to spend extra for the taxi, since public transport is virtually inexistent. We would have... More
