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

My husband and I are in our 50s but are fit and adventurous. We decided to join Riaan Vorster and hike up India Venster route. We were the oldest in a small group, by many years, but that was not an issue. Riaan was an excellent guide, sharing information about the flora & fauna together with historical facts. If you...

I booked a trek with Riaan months before arriving in Cape Town and the service he provided was exceptional. Care was spent in finding out about our levels of fitness and willingness to experience adventure. Every email was promptly responded to and the dates set for both a Table Top adventure and a day to Cape Hope. A month before... More

We had an awesome experience hiking the Kasteelspoort route with Darren. My wife and I hiked it with my 2 year-old daughter on my back and had a great time. Darren is extremely knowledgeable about both history of the area and the natural surroundings, and really took the time to ensure we were taken care of the entire hike up.... More

We had a fantastic morning hiking up Table Mountain. The process of booking was a breeze and Darren, our guide, was so knowledgeable, enthusiastic and an all-round great bloke. His historical knowledge, as well as flora and fauna information, was first class. But it was the interest he showed in his clients that was also impressive. Highly recommend.

My girlfriend, Susan, and I were traveling through South Africa this past October with a pit stop in Cape Town for a few nights when we decided that hiking Table Mountain would be an adventure we couldn't pass up. I reached out personally to Riaan from Hike Table Mountain and he was very accommodating and pleasant. After booking India Venster,... More

We hiked with Riaan last July and had a fantastic time. We hiked up India Venster and rode the cable car down. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The highest recommendation from us.
