WOW!! I can’t even begin to explain how incredible our hike with Mother City Hikers was for my husband, in-laws, and I. Johan was so knowledgeable, welcoming, warm, and caring. He was an absolute delight to spend our day with! The most gentle and kind soul with so much knowledge about the land and the history of his ancestors made for such an enlightening experience on top of the incredible views. The preparation and support of Lauren and Johan made our day so smooth and perfect! It was our first excursion in Cape Town and it is going to make any other experience very hard to beat.

Lauren was BEYOND supportive, helpful, and attentive when we were trying to plan the best hike for our family. She truly took the time to understand our family’s needs for this experience and was very responsive throughout my multiple emails.

Thank you again for the most magical experience!! We all had the most wonderful time thanks to Lauren and Johan!!

the only problem was the Noodhoek Market Hotel. On check in there was no hot water. I was promised that the hot water would be sorted out. at 10pm it was still not sorted out and finally I was given a change of room. further to this was that the front rooms are extremely noisy from the restaurant from the bar across the road.
thanks

Hello, thank you so much for letting us know the hotel was not suitable. I totally understand your frustration. For your multi-day hiking trip in Cape Town we were in charge of the hiking and the transfers, and not any of the accomodation. I have let the agent know about the hotel and for next time suggested something a little further away from the hub of town for hikers. We truly hope you enjoyed the hiking with us! Best wishes and we hope to meet again.

WOW! A 10 out of 10- the only thing that exceeded the beauty and challenge of the route was Lauren’s total professionalism, knowledge and charm. I have hiked all over the world and this stands out as top hike I have ever done. This is due in large part to the expertise of Lauren. Especially nice to have a woman owned and run business. If you are in Capetown this is a must. Deep gratitude to Lauren for sharing such a fantastic day with me. I cannot wait to return!

We had a fantastic time hiking Platteklip Gorge with Lauren. We got started early in the morning - a good idea given the cooler weather and fewer people - and Lauren was the perfect guide. We learned a ton about Table Mountain, including the geological history and the flora and fauna of the coastal Cape area. We hiked at our own pace, and Lauren was a wonderful, patient guide. Highly recommend!

Thank you! It was a wonderful morning indeed. Thank you for taking the time to hike up instead of Cablecar it up, and to share your experience here too. I'm happy to hear you soaked it all up while we were out there and enjoyed the relaxed pace. It was a pleasure to meet you both and enjoy time in nature. All the very best!

We coordinated with Lauren for a winter Table Mountain hike with Shaun and although the weather changed our preferences, Shaun rolled with the punches and gave us an awesome day. He was super patient and incredibly knowledgeable about the trails and their features. Mother City provided a memorable, professional experience!

Thank you for your review, we appreciate it! Winter in Cape Town can be sooooo good. And at other times, it makes us change plans and do something else. I'm thankful to know you all enjoyed it and had a memorable day! Thank you again and hope to meet you next time :)

My daughter and I wanted a memorable experience for our trip up Table Mountain and our guide Shaun helped make that a reality. He was very knowledgable about all aspects of the mountain from the flowers and fauna to the history and culture of his country. Despite the (unexpected) swirling mist and wet conditions we spent a happy few hours in his charming company and his enthusiasm and confidence were infectious as we hiked up. I would recommend Mothers City Hiking company 100% - for their professionalism, friendliness and efficiency. Thank you for a top class experience!

Hello, and thank you so much for your detailed review of your hike with Shaun. I am happy to hear we all get 100%! Thank you!! We really appreciate the accolade and you taking the time to write about your experience. I am pleased that you got to see the mountain in misty conditions as that is quite a blessing...always changing...looking very mysterious and mystical. I hope you'll be back again and we will hope for clear skies for a different type of experience. All the best!

Through our hotel we booked the Group Hike via Platteklip Gorge. In the morning we were lucky enough to find that Mother City Hikers organised a Private tour for us which was great as we could go at our own pace.

Our tour guide Matt, was absolutely amazing. He made the whole experience for us, he was great at keeping us preoccupied with talk of football, disney and food to make us forget how tired we were!

If you're doing a tour you HAVE to do it with Matt, he has great knowledge of the trails, the mountain and general great stories to share for the 2-3hrs you'll be doing a hike!

Hello, thank you so much for your glowing review of your hike and Matt too. I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed him so much and he kept your mind of the tough sections :) He is a lot of fun! We are happy that we could make your trip private for you. This can be a better option at times so I am happy you felt it was worth it. Well done on your accomplishment and we hope to see you again in the near future! Best wishes.

We were two couples and enjoyed this trip to the max !

We fully can confirm the former reviews:

Our guide picked us up at our hotel and brought foods and water. She knew a lot about the plants and gave us full descriptions. She was more than experienced and confident very helpful on the technical parts of the trail.

She took super photos!

I would also say that one should not try to hike this by oneself.

Do it with this company!

It was a wonderful and unforgettable day
