After all of the positive reviews on MCH I sent Lauren an email and she did not disappoint.
From the start she was very professional, thorough and responsive. And on the hike she was also very friendly!
I did the India Venster route as well and it was incredibly challenging but I felt like a rock (climbing) star after finishing it. She pushed me, in an enouraging way, had great pacing and instruction and I accomplished so much more than I thought possible.
Not to duplicate what others are saying- but she was also incredibly knowledgable about the flora/fauna and the history of SA in general. Every spectacular view we saw had history and a story to go with it.
Someone had told me the routes were clearly marked and I didn't need a guide to hike TM. I don't agree- especially for a hike as specialized as this one. I plan to be in SA again within the year and I plan to call Lauren!
She was a perfect guide!!

Thank you! It was so nice having you hike with me. I'm so glad you enjoyed it and that you found me on Trip Advisor. You are right...going with a guide is a must for a great experience. It just makes it so much more pleasant enjoying the views and learning things along the way without wondering where you are or did you take the right/wrong turn, etc. I hope you will come back to Cape Town and we can do another superb route. Thanks for all your feedback. It is much appreciated. All the best!
