We are a family of six plus one boyfriend. We wanted to appreciate the majesty of Table Mountain and so decided to hike it. We had originally planned for the Saturday of our arrival, but closer to the time recommended the Sunday. As it turns out the Saturday was windy and the cable car not running.

Three of us hiked Lion's Head at sunset with Riaan. We characterized ourselves as "adventurous" and were able to go up via the Southeast Arete -- harness and rope required! It was an absolute blast. Riaan is incredibly knowledgeable and loves what he does. I highly, highly recommend this organization.

We climbed Table Mountain via the India Venster route with our guide Darren in early May 2016. It was a very hot day and Darren was an excellent guide, looked after us really well. One of our party wasn't as well prepared for the heat so Darren lent him his cap, neck scarf and his extra bottle of water. Throughout... More

Table Mountain is breath taking. I booked a private guide and went up Platteklip Gorge. I thought it was significantly more difficult than advertised, BUT it was all made OK by Johann, my guide. He was incredibly patient with my very slow pace, and he was also knowledgeable, professional, attentive and a genuine pleasure to spend time with. I was... More

We hiked up Table Mountain via the Indian Venster route. I am not a big fan of heights and there are some parts of the hike where you are exposed to some high drops. However, our guide Riaan was extremely helpful and showed the group exactly how to manoeuvre around the more challenging parts. Riaan was very passionate and his... More

I hiked Table Mountain (India Venster route) as one of a group of six people. Several of our party were nervous about exposure to heights, but we were guided expertly throughout the hike by the sublime Hendre de Villiers. Hendre looked after everyone expertly and ensured that all enjoyed the experience thoroughly. In booking the hike before our trip I... More

We booked three (hiking) trips in one week with this organisation, all to our complete satisfaction. Guides (Riaan, Liesl, Johan) are very friendly, knowledgeable and accomodating. Highly recommended!

Although this was 2/3 the height of Table, this was a great hike. You could tailor the trip to be as easy or as technical as you wanted in terms of difficulty. You get some great views of the city and a strong sense of accomplishment once completing the trip. Our guide Johan was very friendly and patient. Our group... More

We requested a booking less than 3 days out (got sidetracked) and were replied to quickly that they could accommodate us on the requested day. Booking was done via email (cash only, no online credit card system) and a guide was at our doorstep before sunrise to pick us up. While many reviews told us it was possible to hike... More
