On our last morning in Cape Town we were up and at ‘em before dawn for a private guided hike with the fabulous Hendre to the top of Lion’s Head. The pre-dawn sky was so clear and perfect for stargazing. At a couple points along the path we had to use our hands to ascend rocky ridges, or scramble up... More

We climbed the mountain with a local guide - Martin Chesno - highly recommended. It took us four hours via the route we took (and we are quite fit) - amazing when you get to the top and are above the clouds!

Even though it has been almost two years since we have taken this hike, we still remember it well.( the cable car was out of service so we hiked up and down the mountain). Riann is an excellent guide.. Well worth it for the excerise and the views. Buck and Margarita Keiser

Riann was very helpful in choosing a moderate trail, a good half day challenge. Our guide Liesel was great. She was well prepared, kept a good pace, had plenty of interesting information about the mountain and made sure we got all the good views. Highly recommended!

Upon a quick decision to go for a hike while in Cape Town, I googled and found 'Hike Table Mountain'. I dropped them an email via their websites contact page and received an almost immediate answer back. Before just putting me onto any trail, Riaan inquired about my fitness level and also what I would be comfortable with, scrambling ect.... More

After reading about hiking through Table Mountain and hearing how there have been incidents of people being being up at knife point in broad day light, we decided to hire a guide to hike through to gorge to the top through this company "Hike Table Mountain". I worked with Riaan to schedule the hike and he was very good at... More

My partner and I visited Cape Town in April 2015. My only 'must do' activity when we booked to go to Cape Town was to climb Table Mountain. I read through several guides services on TA and decided on Hike Table Mountain after reading all the fantastic reviews. Unsure of which hike route would be suitable, I sent through our... More

My girlfriend and I booked a hike on table mountain with Riaan for last week and could not have enjoyed it more. Before our trip, we filled out a questionnaire so Riaan could judge our level of fitness. Were both 30, relatively fit and wanted to do something a little more energetic than the regular walking route and Riaan suggested... More

My friend and I did the hike in April 2015. Riann was so warm and funny from the moment he picked us up from our hotel until he dropped us off after the hike. Riann is clearly very knowledgeable about the route (despite all the jokes he makes about not knowing it or never having been able to finish it)... More

My wife and I travelled to Cape Town for both her 30th birthday and our wedding anniversary and part of the holiday, after reading the reviews, was to hike table mountain. From day one, the correspondence with Riaan was superb in which we arranged dates and times for the Indian Venster route. However, before travelling I had unexpected shoulder surgery... More
