      Use Cape Escape Tours or you are missing out.
      We toured Cape Town with Patrick for three days. He is a very knowledgeable guide who takes you to all the right spots to truly experience Cape Town. Some things that really stood out with Patrick: how clean his car was, he was always early or on time, and he always opened and closed everyone's doors. In a world of commercialized tourism, he is a special guide who uses his unique persona and immense experience to wow his guests and give them an unforgettable time! Cape Escape Tours offers a safe and professional environment for a wide range of people including rock climbers, mountain bikers, avid hikers, and tourists anywhere in between. If you are coming to cape Town and want a good experience, you better choose Patrick or you will be missing out... he is simply the best there is.

      Lions head sunrise hike
      Patrick was a fantastic guide, I am not a pro hiker and also nervous of heights and Patrick took that all into consideration and made me feel at ease. A challenging hike but a rewarding one!

      Amazing experience
      My partner and I did a morning hike up Platteklip Gorge with Frank and his partner Birgit. The views were incredible and Frank and Birgit provided us with such amazing company! We felt very comfortable in their presence and they were super supportive of any breaks we wanted up the mountain. Very well run tour company and if we are on this side of the world again, we will definitely do it again. Thanks for a great morning :)

      Fantastic Mountain Bike Trip Around Table Mountain
      My husband and I did the half day mountain bike loop around Table Mountain with Patrick, and it was spectacular! Fun, interesting, scenic riding on varied terrain. Patrick was an excellent guide, the bikes were great, and the ride was a highlight of our time in Cape Town. Highly recommend it!

      Fantastic experience
      We had an amazing experience and would defenelty reccomend trying this activity. We had the guide Patrick who was really amazing and gentle. The trip went from the cable station by Table mountain with a beautiful view in the sunraise. The Track varies from jeep Track and smaller trails in the forest. It was really fun and challanging, and Patrick was adjusting the trip based on our level. Thank you so much for a wonderful day Patrick! -Karoline & Sindre

      No quick cable car
      Thanks to Patrick as an arranger and Andy as my guide, my last day at Cape Town started to sparkle with the sunrise. Firstly, my booking was not suitable for their schedule. However, Patrick sincerely tried to arrange the original booking, and I could receive a go-decision message on the same night. On the booking date, Andy picked me up without delay according to the schedule, at 5AM. Our hike starting before dawn slowly became full of bright with the sunrise and the little bit harder climbing some vertical steps than my expectation. But Andy always took care about my climbing speed and steps. Hence, when we reached the top of the mountain without the cable car, I really felt my decision of the participation to their tour was much great. The tour is my best recommendation for tourists at Cape Town!!

      Amazing experience!
      I did the Lion's head sunset hike with Patrick and it was an amazing experience! Patrick is very frienfly and always attentive, adjusting the pace or helping you if needed. Conversation flows very easily and you will have the opportunity to learn about the local fauna, flora, and interesting aspects of the city. The view is mesmerizing all the way up to the top and there are no words to describe how beautiful it is to watch the sunset! After the sunset, Patrick provides you with a headlight, so it is a very safe hike. I will definitely recommend this hike with Patrick to my friends!

      An epic adventure
      What a great day on the bike! Patrick was great with communications prior to the day, keeping me updated on meet time and weather. Once we started, I knew this was going to be epic. A great adventure that covers a range of different road types. Great views around every corner and Patrick was incredibly knowledgeable!

      Sunrise hike
      Patrick is a super guide! He is very patient, attentive to everyone's needs and levels, funny, knows a lot about the mountains, the fauna and flora, and provides good anecdotes and historical and cultural facts. We did the Table Mountain hike (via the Platteklip route), which is a less technical route but still provides stunning views. We came down via the Cable Car after a stop at the restaurant at the top. Thanks to Patrick for being so professional. Highly recommend him ! PS - Bonus point, he can also speak French !

      Awesome hike!
      I had such a great time mountain biking with my guide, Patrick, that I signed up to do a morning Table Mountain hike as well. Good to start early (when it’s quieter & cooler) the hike was challenging but still in the realm of my skill set! Patrick knew all the best ways to scramble the more technical areas we came across. He was also very knowledgeable of the area and terrain. Highly recommend this hike for outdoor enthusiasts! Don’t miss out!

      Fun challenge with stunning views
      I had an amazing experience mountain biking at Table Mountain with Patrick! It was a challenge (in a good way) and the views were stunning. Pat was so knowledgeable-pointing out historical landmarks in the city and explaining the flora of the area along the way! My bike was great, and sized properly for me. Highly recommend this tour if you’re into biking!

      India Venster Climb
      Patrick took our family group of three up India Venster. We all thoroughly enjoyed the climb and found it physically and technically challenging but great fun. We had lots of short rest stops with some local history from Patrick to recover after difficult sections and this made it more enjoyable. He was very patient with us on the technical sections and gave good advice. Definitely recommend for a half day out in Cape Town.
