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.

We had a great hike on this spectacular (but also very challenging) route up Table Mountain! Riaan is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide so we learned a lot about plant and animal life on Table Mountain and were safely guided through the more tricky bits of the hike. So if you're ok with heights, narrow ledges and quite a... More

I can't say enough positive things about our guide (Riaan) and our experience on Table Mountain. We booked a private tour as the highlight of our honeymoon. Riaan met with us and worked with us to tailor a day that met our adventure level and desire to see as much of the mountain as possible. Riaan gives you much more... More

We went in a group of about 10 up India Venster with Mike and Darren. Perfect day for it - we watched a beautiful sunrise on the way to the start. Initially we thought maybe we could have done it without a guide, but once you get to the rocks and start scrambling it becomes more obvious why you need... More

Fully recommend! And believe the guys, you want to leave early in the morning! We had a very pleasant weather with some clouds, but when the sun comes up it gets really hot and fast! India Venters does require some fitness, but very doable for all ages. One of the best mornings I had whilst in ZA!

Me and my sister hiked Table Mountain with Riaan in February, 15 and it was an amazing experience. This was one of the highlights of our entire trip. Riaan was a great guide and I would HIGHLY recommend doing this if you are in Cape Town.

Really enjoyed our experience up Table Mountain with Hiking Guide - Mike! Set up the hike with Riian via the website, who was prompt to respond and informative. Mike picked us up very early on the day of the hike, and was sympathetic to us being a little behind schedule. Mike was friendly and informative about plants along the way,... More

Where do I begin?!! This was an amazing experience from start to finish. I was traveling solo and didn't want to hike Table Mountain alone. Based on reviews, I went with Hike Table Mountain. Riaan was prompt with answering all my emails and suggesting the best trail to hike. He even suggested alternative days in case of bad weather. There... More
