So I'm usually the type to just venture out on my own, but I was traveling solo and didn't have much time to research. I chose this company and am very happy that I did. Mike was my guide for the day and along the way up he pointed out many plants - both bad and good - and fielded... More

We did the India Venster route with Darren. we had a privately tour as we needed a late start. Brilliant weather and perfect blue skies with no cloud! We did the hike which had varied terrain. Steep start with lots of steps that were quite high and uneven. In parts we had to scramble and climb with lots of guidance.... More

Johan was our guide up Skeleton Gorge route, and he was first class! It was a long 4.5 hrs climb, but so worth the effort when you finally reach the highest point at Mclear's Beacon! There is some rock scrambling and wooden ladders, but still comfortable for those individuals who have some fear of heights. Johan had great knowledge about... More

Climbing the India Venster trail to the top of Table Mountain was one of the most memorable days of my trip! I'll never forget it! A huge thank you to Mike who clearly loves what he does. He is an extremely personable and knowledgeable guide who provided lots of interesting information along the way. I especially enjoyed his commentary about... More

An early morning start is essential to avoid the full sun. Our guide Hendre was 'full of beans' and definiately knew the routes, she was very enthusiastic and at times I needed this to help me get to the top. This is obviously an uphill climb so do not expect a sunday morning stroll, this is at times hard work... More

We did the Skeleton Gorge trail and I would highly recommend it. Hiking up table mountain was our most favorite part of our South African trip! It took about 4-5 hours and it was tough enough to be challenging but easy enough to really enjoy every view. Liesl was the best guide. She set up a lot of breaks and... More

I can't recommend this hiking/guide company enough. Riaan is the owner and has several guides available for hire. We used "Hendre" for a hike up the India Venster trail to the top of Table Mountain. It's a great hike with amazing views of Cape Town and the ocean. Riaan recommends that you leave in the VERY early hours of the... More

Hiked up Table Mountain twice with Hike Table Mountain and Johan on both occasions. Must say, both walks were excellent. India Venster I would rate as an easier walk as there is more scrambling involved, so more time for breaks to recover! Skeleton Gorge, great, but I found this a bit of a killer doing this after Christmas and New... More
