Fantasmagories (fabulous, amazing, beautiful, awesomeness all wrapped up)
Mar 2021 • Friends
It was an amazing experience, I was there for my birthday a weekend away from home what a treat I felt like royalty, service was 5 stars, food awesome I didn't have to make it myself and the staff made me feel super special, Fernando from the leopard bar excellent cocktails, met the chef Juanita Desta came to talk to us, room service turn down beautifully done, and our shuttle service courier can't remember his name he is from khayelitsha professional and knowledgeable about his work 10/10...I cannot express how much I enjoyed my stay at the 12 apostles its a birthday I will never forget. Thank you, thank you....

Hike was the highlight of my trip to Cape Town
Mar 2021
I hiked up the back of the mountain along the Kasteelspoort variation of the 12 Apostles route with my guide Hendré and it was an absolutely fantastic experience. The natural beauty, exhilarating views of the Atlantic and the city as well as the physical aspect of the hike made it unforgettable.

The Kasteelspoort variation does require an above average level of fitness, which was something I wanted. They do offer multiple routes with varying levels of difficulty so there are easier routes and variations available if you seek something less physically challenging.

Having my guide Hendré there was what really made this a great experience compared to say, doing the hike on my own. Her knowledge and expertise made a huge difference. Overall the hike was the highlight of my time in Cape Town and was well worth the money.

Feb 2020
The hike was absolutely amazing. We were both new to hiking and our guide, Liesl, was so friendly, knowledgeable and encouraged us all the way. The views were incredible and we can't wait to come back one day and do another hike!

What a hike! Fantastic
Feb 2020
We booked the hike to Table Mountain months in advance. Because of the season and our fitness, we were recommended to climb over the 12 Apostles. Since the weather forecast for the booked day was rather bad, Riaan recommended us to hike the day before. And how right he was! We were picked up by Mike at 06.00am from our hotel in Cape Town and started the ascent via Camps Bay. After only a few meters we could already enjoy the spectacular views of the ocean and Lion's Head. Another fantastic view offered us the so-called Breakfast Rock. Through an enchanting flora we went on to the top of Table Mountain at over 1'000 meters above sea level. Mike proved to be not only a fantastic guide but he was able to motivate our two children at any time. After about 4 hours we proudly reached the viewing platform. Certainly one of the most beautiful hikes in the world. Safety was never an issue. The ride with the cable car was the culmination of a wonderful morning in Cape Town.
Many thanks to Riaan and special thanks to Mike. If you are in Cape Town and enjoy nature, a hike up Table Mountain is a must. An absolute must!

Amazing Hike, Amazing Guide
Feb 2020
We hiked up Table mountain on our recent visit to Cape Town using Hike table mountain. I can honestly say it was such an amazing experience. Our guide Hendre was extremely friendly, and knowledgeable about the mountain and the flora. She really made our experience that much more enjoyable. We were supposed to hike on the Sunday but they recommended that we move this to the Tuesday due to the weather and they were spot on with that. We couldn't have had more perfect views! I would definitely recommend for those thinking of hiking to use Hike Table mountain.

Incredible! Massive tick off the bucket list!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Would definitely recommend this company to get you up Table Mountain. We did 12 apostles route and the views were amazing. 4.5hours to get up, but was a massive tick off the bucket list. I did it with my husband and my mom and Mike was incredible! He helped us the whole way up and put my mother at ease who is scared of heights!
Really really recommend and a must if going to cape Town! Plenty of sunscreen! Xxxxx

Stunningly beautiful hike
Jan 2020
Stephanie was our guide and it was just an amazing experience. One of the most beautiful hikes we've ever done. Amazing views, beautiful flora and birds. We learned so much from Stephanie about Cape Town, Table Mountain and SA generally. It was a bit challenging for the first section of the hike but so worth it to get to the top and see the amazing views. Can't recommend enough. Thanks Stephanie!
