This hike was challenging but beautiful, with the climate ranging from tropical at the bottom to windy and misty at the top. Having an excellent guide was an enormous help in finding our way and finding flowers and other treasures along the way .... We are very grateful for this wonderful experience.

I really wanted to hike Table Mountain, but had little time. I contacted Riaan the day before and was able to join a suitable hike the next day. He was so incredibly helpful. I only confirmed my booking at 5am, an hour before we started the hike! Riaan picked me up and even stopped to let me buy food and... More

Took on India Venster this morning and it was one the best things I've ever done. Worth every penny. If you're looking for an interesting and slightly challenging hike up the mountain, look no further - I'm not sure if there's anything Riann doesn't know about the mountain and Cape Town, in general. Truly wonderful experience and I cannot recommend... More

I contacted Riann a couple of weeks in advance and had to change the day of my hike on a relative short notice. He was able to accommodate the change with no problems. I was in town on business and was able to get away for a few hours in the early morning. I did the hike up India Venster... More

Very efficient. Responded to my emails very promptly and clearly. Riann suggested the right route for me and it did not disappoint. Neither did Riann. Not only you get a knowledgable, calm and patient guide with you, he can also tell you about the history and the fauna in Table Mountain. Makes the hike a lot more enjoyable. My only... More

I spent two days on Table Mountain whilst in Cape Town: The first was hike / scramble up the India Venster route and the second was a 10 pitch rock climb up to the top. I organised both via Hike Table Mountain and had a great experience. For the hike, I would recommend not going up the basic route, but... More

We contacted Riaan on very short notice to hike Table Mountain the day after Christmas. He was able to accommodate us on a group hike up the India Venster trail. Riaan offered to pick us up from our hotel and drive us to the mountain. From there we hit the trail, stopping periodically to discuss the history of the mountain... More

I found Riaan on trip advisor when I was researching table mountain hikes (which had been recommended by Capetown expat friends). We emailed back and forth to identify the right hike for our skill level/fitness (and vertical fears) - the Kasteelspoort - which was a 4.5 hr walk that took us up between the 12 apostles, ending at McLear's Beacon...

When we went to Cape Town for our honeymoon, we were eager to Hike Up the notorious Table Mountain, but were nervous about trying it on our own. We were thinking about using the cable car, but didn't want miss out on the opportunity to venture up and experience the true nature of the mountain. We discovered Riaan through TripAdvisor,...

If you are planning to climb Table Mountain while spending time in Cape Town then there is definitely only one man for the job and that is Riaan! Throughout the booking process he was very responsive and genuinely wanted to help select the best route for you depending on fitness levels and experience. I chose the India Venster route in...
